A promotional video emerged on the official Final Fantasy XIII website yesterday to give American and European fans what they’ve been craving for months: a release date. Make a mark in your diaries: 9th March 2010 is the official release date for Square Enix’s latest role-playing epic.

Whilst the release date is naturally the biggest draw, the video also features a small group of producers and game designers offering tantalising bits of information regarding character and aspects of design. Woven between their comments are flashes of gorgeous in game footage including some brief battle scenes that have never been shown before. Interestingly, and somewhat surprisingly, a Leona Lewis song ‘My Hands’ has been selected as the game’s main theme.

The hype campaign is growing for Final Fantasy XIII and everything so far points towards another success for the long running series. Given that Final Fantasy XIII is simply the beginning of what Square Enix plans will be a whole host of games set in this new universe, fans certainly have a lot to look forward to.
