Final Fantasy XIII-2 coming “next winter” to Europe

Ok, so maybe we won’t be seeing Final Fantasy XIII-2 this year after all.

Following on from Square Enix’s big Final Fantasy XIII-2 reveal earlier today, the official press announcement reveals that while the Japanese release is penned in for 2011, Europe is currently down as “next winter”.

Now, before we all shed a tear, it should be noted that winter starts December 21st, so there is every chance that we’ll be getting FFXIII-2 sometime early in 2012….well, hopefully anyway.

It has also been confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII-2’s story “stems from the previous title” and that the battle system will be an enhanced, evolved version of that found in the original.

No news yet on the potential for exploration but fingers crossed and all that.
