Advent Children Blu-Ray Release And FFXIII Demo Delayed
Update: Only the movie gets the English voiceovers; the demo does NOT. Sorry for the confusion.
Sometimes, clarifications are absolutely necessary, especially for hardcore fans.
When the news broke yesterday that a very cool Advent Children PS3 package would release in Japan on April 16, the inevitable question followed: "does this mean the Blu-Ray release and Final Fantasy XIII demo has been delayed?" See, Square-Enix announced at their private DKS3713 event last year that the Blu-Ray release of "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children" would launch in March, which meant the Japanese public would also get the demo at the same time (the demo comes packaged with the movie). However, if this was still true, why wait to release that special Advent Children PS3 bundle? Well, they're not; as it turns out, the movie and demo have indeed been delayed until April 16. So if you were considering an import purchase, bear in mind that it won't be available for sale until April, which is about one month behind schedule. We've heard the demo won't be coming to North America with the movie, which means you will have to import if you wish to play a portion of the hotly anticipated RPG. The good news is that it will include both Japanese and English voiceovers, so there's some extra incentive...
Anyway, we figured you'd just want to know the score. We know some of our readers are planning to import this stuff, and we didn't want you to be confused.
