Final Fantasy XIII will save Japan
In an interview with PlayStation Blog Europe, Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama hail the game as a saviour for the Japanese game development industry.
The pair rebutted criticism of the Japanese development scene, saying that Final Fantasy XIII proves that it's far from dead.
"Some people have been saying that the Japanese game industry is dead, and all thatI dunno. I will say that Final Fantasy XIII is one really epic title for high definition consoles. With this game, we are going to resurrect the whole thing."
While one game may not have the power to revitalise an entire industry, Final Fantasy XIII will undoubtedly be a morale boost. It's selling well in Japan and is expected to be huge in Europe and the US when it ships on March 9.
