Your wish is basically granted. 1 month after Japan is pretty rad.
Yeah! I'm pretty happy right now. I can't wait to play this game. One of my most anticipated Wii games.

12/26 makes more sense than it might seem. People come rolling into Best Buy/etc. with gift cards, exchanges, and so on.
Right, but if you release it before Christmas, the game will not magically disappear after Christmas

Best Buy won't take it off the shelves because it existed in a pre-Christmas world.

S-E are crazy for pushing this out a day after Christmas (Really, they can't be cutting it that close to the wire with localisation that they couldn't push it forward a week surely?!) but I'm not complaining really! I wonder if this means that there's a smidgen of a chance that we might get FF13 sometime soonish as well!

Man, the game got sent to die.

All the 'well people will use gift cards!' reasoning is a load of crap. any sales they might get that way would be a fraction of what they'd get for christmas sales.

True, though, Boxing Day is a big sales day.

Well yeah, but key word is 'sales'. People go looking for discounted items, not a $50 game.

It's a horrible release date, no matter how you look at it. Especially for a game with a well known name. Shoppers flock to established names during Christmas shopping. They would have got sales from the Final Fantasy name alone. Probably not heaps, but more than they'll get from releasing it where they did.

The last time a game release on the 26th of December was back in 2006 when Bubble Bobble Evolution released. And that was still a Tuesday.

:lol This is a culmination of events that began in the 32/64 bit days. What you speak of is inevitable.

Its already happening. Just look at all the "Well I'm anticipating BLANK far more than BLANK" posts that have popped up.

Actually since most people don't give a rat's ass about CB the only "war" will be between FFXIII 360 and FFXIII PS3.

They're both going to be great games, but CB seems to do more to advance the series than 13, so I'm more anxious to play it.

I would really love to know their reasoning for this. Such a big title completely lost in a limbo time of the year, why? Why not make a bigger deal out of it? I honestly can't understand why they seemingly just send something out and go meh. Why did they localise it to begin with if they didn't really care how it went?

Bastards, I import so because of a date like that I probably wont see it till 2010 because of shipping holidays etc etc. Why not just release it early December or something? Like someone already mentioned its not like shops will TAKE IT OFF THE SHELF if it comes out BEFORE Xmas, it'll still be there afterwards for people with those gift cards and newly opened Wii presents.

Ugh.

How? The two games aren't even a part of the same genre!

FFCC was better than FFX.

I wonder why they changed the date. Quite rare to see this happening with SE, usually it's the opposite that goes on.

just dropping in to give this game my support.

it looks fantastic, and like it's not stuck up its own ass, which is a big plus these days in this genre.

Totally agree. It doesn't look like its trying to be epic, pretentious, or anything else like that. It just looks like they're throwing a bunch of cool ideas together and disregarding everything else.

I have a feeling this is going to be No More Heroes-esque for me; the day it arrives I put it in my Wii, and it doesn't come out until it’s finished.

My friend was right, you are on of the best posters ever.

Until you disagree with me, that is. :lol

Balloons = Cuckoos(minus the swarm of doom that ensues when you attack them)?

:lol At the alien abduction thing, it would be a nice reference if they used that alien thing from FF8.

lol they really like adding the UFO mini-game to the FFCC games. Except in Ring of Fates, it was cows you had to protect.

This game looks so badass. I'll end up talking about buying it, but when it comes out, I'll forget all about it :(

If there were a limited edition Wii bundle, I'd buy it...never imagined I'd be playing an FF like this, or that I'd want to that bad.
