While the recent release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete on Blu-ray in Japan brought with it the Japanese demo for Final Fantasy XIII, gamers in other regions will not be able receive their first taste of the game so easily. According to Final Fantasy XIII's producer, Yoshinori Kitase, this demo is not planned to be packaged with Advent Children Complete's release anywhere outside of Japan.
This is primarily due to the fact that Final Fantasy XIII is a PlayStation 3 exclusive in Japan, but in North America and Europe also planned for release on the Xbox 360. Due to the multiple console release, Kitase states "We really can't just make it available only for the PS3." However, he does reveal that making a demo available for download is something Square Enix is looking into.
