Square Enix have just updated the official website of Final Fantasy XIII in order to announce the soon publication on Internet of a series of written stories connected to the scenario of the game.
Imaginated by Motomu Toriyama and Daisuke Watanabe, theses storises have been written by Jun Eishima (Emi Nagashima's nickname). She had already done several stories for Square Enix, inspired by Dragon Quest, Drakengard and Fullmetal Alchemist. The stories of Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero -Promise- will start to be published this month, with a first chapter called "Encounter".
The offical website gives us too, into the "REPORT" section, a report of the premiere party. Note that the "SPECIAL" part, in which the novelized part of the game is unveiled, have a last mystery page. The forth before the third, it is a really weird concept, isn't it?
FFXIII, the game, will be released the 17th december in Japan and next spring everywhere else.
