Just yesterday, Final Fantasy XIII was released in the US and looks set to be a success. The game came out right at the end of last year in Japan and GaijinPot was there to film the day of release in Akiba.

Final Fantasy XIII sold more than one million copies on its first day in Japan, and reached 1,6 million by the end of 2009. Top gaming magazine Famitsu rated the game at 39/40, which is just below the maximum 40/40 awarded to Final Fantasy XII – which went on to sell 5.2 million copies worldwide. Have you bought into the Final Fantasy phenomenon? What are your thoughts on part XIII?
Game is trash. Play Mass Effect.
Final Fantasy VII remains the absolute pinacle of the series. Whatever Square do to the graphics, design and story it will never match what they achieved back on the original playstation
It's really a must have! Perfect storyline and visually stunning, what else can you ask for? 🙂 I think this is the best Final Fantasy ever produced, no wonder it already reached the 5 million mark.
Enjoying FFXIII so far, though i'm not the biggest fan of the franchise
