Confirming what the Final Fantasy XIII trial version ended with, Final Fantasy XIII will come out in Japan this winter. Not “January 2010 winter”, but 2009 winter which pegs the release in November or December of this year. The official site posted an update with the same target and a selection of battle screens posted below.
One of the new moves all characters have is a launch command. Select this and you can knock an enemy into the air and juggled them if they in “break” status.
