The lights are on
After years of excitement and anticipation, Final Fantasy XIII has officially hit retail. Last night Square Enix celebrated with an impressive launch party for developers, press, and fans alike. Highlights included a red carpet for developers and talent, a special 3D launch trailer, interviews with key voice actors, a panel of industry luminaries discussing the impact of the Final Fantasy franchise and even a DJ on hand to remix some Final Fantasy tracks. We’ve got a gallery of pictures from the event for you to gander at below. If you can tear yourself away from the game, that is.
Be sure to check out the GDC 2010 hub page for quick access to more news and hands-on impressions from the event. Enjoy!

I gotta still pick my copy up!
A DJ remixing Final Fantasy music... huh.
I want to play the game, I really do, but after a few rounds of "Final Fantasy: This Main Character is Gonna Suck 10 Times Worse Than the Last One" I'm just a bit skeptical. Face it, Tidus sucked. Sucked. And one look a Vaan makes me want to kick him/her/it in the throat. I'll wait for the reviews to come in before I shell out the crinkle on this one.
have class, then gamestop, then FFXIII sliding into the PS3, then i'm all set.
@Ghostpig: Vaan was the most standard-@ss character in the series. And Tidus was weak $hit, I feel you bro
*sob. gaugh! i want it so bad! but i also have to eat! oh cruel adulthood. i'm really eager to hear what everyone thinks about ffxiii, and i hope more news of ffxiii versus will come soon too.
I still don't know whether or not to get this game, the last FF title I played was FFX, which was a great game, but I feel that since then the series hasn't been the same for some odd reason.
I'm still considering though.
just bought my copy!! Can't wait to get off work and play it!
so cool! how does one aquire a "ticket" to one of these events, anyways?
Sigh...I've got the red ring of death; I don't think someone wants me to play this game.
This game was not a disappointment to fans of the series. The combat system is the best of the series. The story is was better than they give credit.so if your worried about 13 ruining series it didnt happen
still waiting for my FFXIII to come through my mail box.... the day is near the end.....
I think this game was worth the money and the drive up to GameStop at midnight! I played it from 1:00-3:00 AM went to bed and woke up at 7 AM to continue playing.
My copy hasn't arrived yet, I had it shipped. Well when heavy Rain shipped it took two days to arrive so I better get by tomorrow or I'm going to be very upset.
Nice, I need to go pick a copy up here soon.
I got my copy! Class couldn't finish quickly lol
I'm playing it right now and it rules. RULES.
