The game from Square Enix is expected to launch for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 in December in Japan, in January for those in the U.S and in February for everyone else.

It can be purchased from GameStop, Best buy and Amazon with each store offering varying bonus content with every pre-order.
The video clip below which publicizes the TV special is not really enough to satisfy Final Fantasy fans completely but gives us enough to quell their anticipation and appetite for the time being. What it does give viewers is a quick glimpse of Sazh as well as the voice actor who plays the character, Masashi Ebara who will also be hosting the Japanese show.
