The Final Fantasy XIII Blu-Ray demo was released in Japan a few weeks ago, bundled with the the film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. Unfortunately, there are no plans for a release outside of Japan, the game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase has told VideoGamer.com. Kitase did suggest a downloadable demo, saying “We hear that the demo version normally means something that you can download in the West, so that is a possibility.”
Final Fantasy XIII is should arrive on PlayStation 3 in Japan later this year, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions due in Europe and North America no earlier than April 2010.
Speaking to VideoGamer, FF series producer Yoshinori Kitase said:
The type of demo version we released in Japan, we currently have no plan of doing that abroad, partly because we are going to carry on with the project alongside the Xbox version, so we really can’t just make it available only for the PS3.
