Final Fantasy XIII Bilingual for PS3, 360 English-Only


In a new interview, Final Fantasy XIII producer, Yoshinori Kitase, reveals that the North American PlayStation 3 release of Final Fantasy XIII will have the original Japanese voice track alongside the English dub. However, due to space constraints, the Xbox 360 version of the game will not.

“Obviously, when we talk about XIII it’s for PS3 and Xbox – with PS3 being on Blu ray there would be enough memory,” Kitase stated “but on Xbox probably not. At the moment we’re thinking of releasing the voice in English only. Are there many people who would like to play with Japanese voices? ”

For Final Fantasy VII fans, Kitase tells that Advent Children Complete marks the end of the games, however there’s still hope for more.

“In Japan, the Blu-ray version of Advent Children has just been released. That’s meant to make a mark to end all of these productions. But, all these games of FFVII have just been spawned off the cuff with small ideas; one idea just turns into another. In this sense, there’s a possibility we might end up creating more FFVII games in the future.”

We’re dreaming of that remake right now.
