Final Fantasy XIII demo coming…eventually

FFXIII2008 is the year of the fantasy, Final Fantasy XIII that is. Square Enix is making a promise to give us fans all the new info regarding this epic game, along with releasing a demo of the game sometime this year. But there was no date attached to the announcement, not even a guess.

The main reason for the demo is to get the fans some hands-on experience with the new battle system.

Here are some more details that were featured in Japanese mags that were translated by fans over at

-Nomura: "2008 will be the year. There will be tons of news bits, info on characters and summons, and an unexpected connection between the keywords Cocoon and Farushi.
– We’re aiming for a demo to give players a hands on on the battle system.
– FF13’s theme: determination.
– Farushi: Their existence surpasses humans.
– Rushi: Those chosen by Farushi to carry out a mission. The pigtail girl is a Rushi. Farushi is not the Crystal.
– Mr. 33cm is also a Rushi.
– This time summons are in digital form.
– A new monster that looks like a cross between a turtle and elephant.
– The red thing on Carbuncle’s head is a ruby.
– Hint on release date: "I wonder when we’ll be able to sleep…"

I still doubt this game is going to come out in 2008, but I commend Square Enix for their kindness in giving PS3 owners something to look forward to this year.
