Japan getting Xbox 360 FFXIII.

You knew this was coming.

Apparently the game will be in English with Japanese subs, and will not contain anything new in-game, instead simply offering Japan content that had only been for the US release, an easy mode (Does the game play itself?) and a story book.

I found this particularly amusing:
Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase told Famitsu (via Gamasutra) that the new version was spurred by the launch of the remodeled 360 earlier this year, which aimed to bolster the console's install base in Japan. "We feel that there are ... a lot of people in Japan who own nothing but 360s. Thanks to the new system and such, the situation's a lot different than it was in July 2008,"

Considering the Xbox 360 is almost nonexistent in Japan, I can't help but wonder if this is more MS writing another huge check. As with all their other checks in Japan, I don't expect this to set the 360 on fire in Japan.
