Final Fantasy XIII-2 dated for January in North America

Final Fantasy XIII-2 won’t follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, when it comes down to international release dates. Final Fantasy XIII came west three months after its release in Japan. Final Fantasy XIII-2 will launch in North America only a month after its Japanese release.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 will launch in Japan in December this year. A press release detailing Square Enix’s Comic-Con lineup issued today reveals it will launch in January 2012 for North America. No word on a European date yet, but we’re guessing it’ll launch within the same time frame.

    Wow Awesome…

    I’m glad I can stop worrying. I thought I would have to wait a long time, while trying to avoid spoilers. But it’s only about a month, so I should be fine.

  • Somewhat sooner than I thought, actually. Perhaps my first game of 2012?

      @TezChi: Depends when SSX comes out for me. SSX is a day one buy.

  • January?! I will be recovering from the splurge of games at Christmas time. How will I find time to play that as well? FUUUUUUUUUU-

  • yes yes can’t wait
    I’m so happy :D

  • TheDarkCloud

  • Genesis

      @FAUNA: Quit asking that!
      If you want it then email them or send a letter,it has a far better chance that way.

  • whiteferrero

    Yey! Finally a quick localization from Squareenix

  • RedWolfe

    Shit…and this comes right after I finished telling off a friend that he’s a fool for believing the release date on a Gamestop list :P

  • I do not believe its coming out in that month. I wouldnt be surprised if it gets pushed to March or later. A solid release date this year for a major title? Ha!

    I’m hoping for a Japanese Voice track this time :D just like ff13 did.although they only released it in the chinese version.

    • jena espiosi

      @Leonix7791: Was’nt there supposed to be an E3 interview to ask about the japanese voice track option so we knows if we have to wait for a chinese version ?

      • Leonix7791

        @jena espiosi:

        Well i remember Sal (Gematsu head) said something about interview last time…lolz

  • DarthXehanort

    Already pre-ordered.

    Awwwwwww yeah.

  • manasword0

    Nice. Never bought a FF game so maybe I’ll take a chance on 13 and then see how it goes from there. Hopefully Graces F doesn’t come out around the same time
