Square Enix Announces Final Fantasy XIII Release Date Announcement

If there is one thing that I adore more than countdown clocks, it’s announcements of announcements. Well, you can imagine how I felt when I heard that Square Enix head Yoichi Wada recently announced that there will be a release date announcement regarding the highly anticipated RPG Final Fantasy XIII in a “few weeks.”

Unless my calendar doth deceive me, that would put the announcement right around the time of this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Of course, the release date will most likely be for the Japanese version of the game (PlayStation 3 only at this point),which has been long trapped in Winter 2009 status, but I guess it's better than nothing. Perhaps Square Enix will reveal an overseas date for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions as well, but don’t hold your breath.

Personally, I’m betting on seeing a PS3 Slim/FFXIII duel mega-announcement from Sony at TGS. Then again, given Sony’s history will these kinds of tradeshow announcements, full PS3 Slim info will leak a few weeks early, and then Square Enix will reveal that FXIII has been pushed to early 2010. I sincerely hope this doesn’t happen, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if it did.

Any announcement announcements that you’re particularly excited about?
