Square Enix Adding "Final Touches" To Western FFXIII

Japan gets Final Fantasy XIII this year. Lucky sods. Western fans have to suck it up, wait it out. How long? Maybe not that long, if comments from his Imperial Hotness, Yoichi Wada, are anything to go by.

Speaking with GI.biz, Wada said, "We've completed the master of the Japanese version, and for the US and European versions we're just adding the final touches.

"The last stage of development has gone very smoothly this time."

Excellent news! Then again, this game has been in development for nearly four years already... "final touches" could be a relative term in Square Enix lingo.

    Hopefully the announcement on Friday will surprise us. Would be nice if we got the game earlier than the predicted April-ish window.

    This game better be exceedingly good. Thats all I have to say.

    Didn't SquareEnix once said the development of the US/Europe will not start until the Japanese version is released? Even though I welcome the new of we won't have to wait very long for an English version, but the word for SquareEnix's president's mouth is getting more and more untrustworthy.... sigh...
