Take A Crack At The FFXIII Anagram

Ah, puzzles. We don't mind posting them because you guys usually have the answer in less than an hour, anyway.

All you role-playing fans are always scrounging about for any information concerning Final Fantasy XIII, which is why we're always doing our jobs and looking around for you. Bear in mind that in a few weeks, we'll be paying close attention to the Internet as a press event in Japan might finally provide us with a Western release date. But in the meantime, if you need something else to chew on, feel free to visit the game's official website and check out the anagram they've got posted in the News section. If you're too lazy to click through (or you're at work or something and are nervous), here it is:

A Henchmen Inventor Tent Unto

Okay, so take a crack at it. And I'm not going to tell you what an anagram is; if you really don't know, go ahead and use that nifty search function on Google. I'd stare at it for a while if I had the time but I really don't, and in all honesty, I know some diligent reader is just gonna do it for me. Something like an anagram isn't enough to stop people from learning the truth! But if for some reason you can't get it, they'll post up the answer on Monday, so stay tuned...

Oh! HAHA! Duh! I stared at it for a while and that makes sense if that is what it is.
"announcement nov thirteenth"
I just realized that I have to much time if I can spend even a second trying to solve that.
Even if I win with that being right, in reality, I lose. hahaha.

On the first post too, saves me the energy :)

Can't wait for that announcement, I sincerely hope it does come earlier than expected unless that means they cut corners for a certain reason...

i dont know what an anagram was, i definitely didnt know how to solve it. But since someone already figured it out, mind giving me a "step by step" on how it was solved.

All you have to do is rearrange the letters to something that makes sense. How I did it was I took a guess at what it was and as I wrote it down I crossed out the letters I used to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

–noun

1. a word, phrase, or sentence formed from another by rearranging its letters: “Angel” is an anagram of “glean.”

2. anagrams, (used with a singular verb) a game in which the players build words by transposing and, often, adding letters.

–verb (used with object)

3. to form (the letters of a text) into a secret message by rearranging them.

4. to rearrange (the letters of a text) so as to discover a secret message.

Actually since you have to use every letter and can use each one only once you rarely end up with more than one or two combinations for most.

If you have no clues it can be ridiculously difficult but if you think about it in context an announcement was the most likely thing to look for first and then work out the rest from there

the site says "what lies ahead" so i figured it had to be announcement of some kind. So I tried that word to start with and it worked. i rewrote the remaining letters again, sorting them into type (E's together for example). From there, i kinda stared at it until i realized both remaining E's had to be grouped together which resulted in "thirteen" and finally came up with the end product. Pretty straight forward but can be done in many, many ways.

knowing "what lies ahead" wouldve helped out a lot, but i didnt go to the website. i figured "A Henchmen Inventor Tent Unto" was all there was. i should've figured there was a clue to go along with it.

I watched the footage and was I'm glad because there's gonna be a romance in this one unlike FFXII.
I thought there won't be any romance because Lightning doesn't look like the type to be romantic but I forgot we still have Snow.

Although the english voice acting is still crap as ever.
