Square Enix: “Absolutely No Final Fantasy Xbox 360 For Japan”

The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, going on sale August 29th in Japan, features an interview with Final Fantasy XIII director and writer Motomu Toriyama and Final Fantasy Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura. In the interview, they talk about the possibility of Japan getting the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII. Nomura admits that he himself was “surprised” about Asia getting the Xbox 360 version. However, Toriyama commented on whether Japan will get the game.

“There will absolutely not be an Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XIII for Japan.”

So, there you have it. No Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360 for Japan. Although, unless they want a simultaneous release, I see no reason not to bring it to Japan.
