It is slated for physical and digital release on May 20th of this year in North America.  As for Europe, Square Enix has announced that the game will be sold a day after, on May 21st of this year, but still digital only.

Along with the release date, Square Enix has announced pre-order incentives and a Limited Edition set that is being sold only on their online store that uses Digital River. Here’s the rundown:

Fans who place their pre-order from today through March 3 will receive a special Japanese voiceover DLC and will automatically unlock the two yet-to-be-announced bonuses.  From March 4 to April 8, pre-ordering the game will unlock the two remaining unannounced bonuses. From April 9 until launch, fans will receive the final unannounced locked bonus only. However, pre-ordering the game before March 4 will net you all three bonuses.
