Final Fantasy XIII Also Has A European Release Date

When Square Enix finally announced a release date for Final Fantasy XIII in North America earlier today, they also quietly slipped a European date out the door as well. And you know what? It's not as bad as you're thinking.

While earlier developments had led to a degree of pessimism on the part of European fans (well deserved considering Square Enix's previous localisation efforts), this morning it was revealed that the game will be out in Europe on the same day it's out in North America.

March 9.

Which, when you think about the way the world spins, means Europe gets a Final Fantasy game before the US. Crazy.

Kotaku AU Note: We'll confirm this date with Square Enix's Australian distributor as soon as possible.


    "March 9."


    Lets hope its the same date for Australia.

    *Fingers crossed*

    Dosn't matter, if there's a pal release anywhere you can just import. Of course Sony fans can just import any english language version :P

    Oh man this made my stressful day. I bought a 40 inch LCD tv and ps3 slim just for this. I cannot wait :D

      You made a good choice getting a PS3 for it.

    Well, I'm sure it'll be the same release date for Australia. Usually we get the same release date as Europe or even earlier sometimes!

    Are australians still getting screwed though? Yeah we are warent we D:.
