Final Fantasy XIII-2 due in December, PS3 version of FFXIII being updated
Square Enix announced today that the Japanese version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 will see release in December of this year.
The game's official site was also fully opened today. The page now has background music, a section showing off the game's characters, the E3 trailer (with English voices, but Japanese subtitles), a wallpaper download, and the text of the Final Fantasy XIII novel that was included with the Xbox 360 version of FFXIII.
The character section currently contains just Noel Kreiss, the new character who appeared in the E3 trailer.
Square Enix also announced today that it will be updating the PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIII with the Easy Mode that was added to last year's Xbox 360 release. This update will be available for free and will arrive alongside the July 21 release of the Ultimate Hits budget version of the PS3 title.
The update will take place automatically when you boot up the game while connected to PSN. After the update, you'll be able to select "Easy Mode" when starting a new game. You can also switch difficulties midway through the game.
