Lightning Returns FFXIII: Amazon lists March 2013 release

Update: Square Enix says the date is factually incorrect

Update: Square Enix has told us that the release date listed by Amazon is factually incorrect, while reiterating that the game is set for release in 2013.

Original story: Amazon UK is listing Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for release on March 29, 2013.


The online retailer updated its pre-order page with the Friday release date earlier this week, Examiner reports.

It may well just be a placeholder though, as Famitsu reported last month that the PS3 and Xbox 360 game is just 30 per cent complete.

Revealed at a Final Fantasy 25th anniversary event in September and set for release some time next year, the game is being billed as the last entry in the "Lightning saga". It'll feature the FFXIII heroine in a tense finale as a doomsday clock counts down 13 days until the end of the world.
