The moment that Japan has been awaiting for over half a decade may finally have arrived today, thanks to a teaser and some Internet Matlockery. A Japanese Youtube flash ad had been teasing the reveal of Final Fantasy XIII's release date today, and a few impatient kids decided to dig a little deeper and find out ahead of time.

All they needed to do was change the word "before" to "after" in the ad's URL in order to come up with the image you now see before you -- a banner bearing Final Fantasy XIII's Japanese release date of December 17. At the time of writing, Square Enix has neither confirmed nor denied the release date, but weeaboo importers may want to contact their local dealer. 

Who knew? Looks like a full version of Final Fantasy XIII might see the light of day somewhere in the world before this year is out.

[Update: The release has now been confirmed by Square Enix at an event in Tokyo. Japanese gamers (and not-so-Japanese importers) can get their hands on the game December 17 for 8,800 Yen!]
