Square Enix unveiled a bunch of new information, announced the release date, and showed off a new trailer at its Final Fantasy XIII premiere party in Tokyo. Here are the announcements:
- The game will be released in Japan on December 17, 2009
- There will be a special PlayStation 3 bundle (more details will be revealed later, but I'd be shocked if a special PS3 wasn't made for this game)
- Suntory will help promote the game with a limited edition drink called Final Fantasy XIII Elixir
- The drinks will come in a collector's edition box and only 30,000 will be available
- The game's title song is called "Kimiga Irukara" and has been recorded by Sayuri Sugawara
I have a bunch of photos, a few videos, and impressions of the new trailer coming soon. The highlight of the night was on orchestral performance of some of the game's score. Stay tuned!
