Square Enix confirms western launch date for FFXIII-2
Anticipated RPG to hit early next year.
As part of its ComicCon lineup announcement, Square Enix confirmed that its much awaited RPG title, Final Fantasy XIII-2, will release in January next year in western countries.
The RPG was first announced back in January this year. At E3, Square Enix slapped a December release for Japan and a vague 2012 launch for other parts of the world.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 will take place five years after the events of the original title. The world of Gran Pulse is in chaos, and Lightning, the protagonist from the first game, is nowhere to be found. While many believe she is dead, her sister Serah Farron thinks otherwise, and sets out to find her along with a young boy named Noel Kreiss. The game is being developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
