Final Fantasy X release date, price announced for Japan

[04.16.01] » Japanese gamers better start saving their yen.

    Square confirmed today that Final Fantasy X will indeed meet its projected Japanese release date and is now set to launch on July 19. More surprising is the announced price for the game -- 8800 yen, which converts to over 70 US dollars and is well above the 6800 yen average price for PlayStation 2 games.

    Even more suprising is the price for the Limited Edition version of the game, as the 2-DVD deluxe set will retail for 10,800 yen, a price not seen since the SNES-era heyday of cartridges.

    Expect official announcements regarding the US version(s) of Final Fantasy X to be made at next month's E3.
