Square Enix Ltd. today announced the forthcoming Final Fantasy XII will be released on February 23rd in Europe and other countries that support the PAL television standard.
The latest title in one of Square Enix’s most beloved franchises will be released across all PAL territories exclusively on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.

The choices they make will determine the very fate of the world.
