EVENTS


Square Enix had thrown two events (One in Japan in Shibuya and one in the United States in Seattle) announcing major stuff for the Final Fantasy and celebrate twenty-five years of the series.

You can watch a live UStream for those unable to attend!
Pax Prime Preview - Final Fantasy Events

If you are watching the UStream, people at home can score codes and passwords for any Square Enix games on the PSN, iOS, and many more!

If physically going, people will be given a free poster featuring Amano's artwork of the first fourteen Final Fantasy games and take pictures in a battle field shot.

If you really want the poster but can't get it... I found the officially picture on Final Fantasy Wikia to make as nice wallpaper at least.

Kitase also has a Twitter account made for the Lightning Returns -Final Fantasy XIII- game.
Twitter - @LRFF13

He'll be keeping us all posted on what's going on, along with the official website as well:
Final Fantasy XIII -Lightning Saga- "A Storm Gathers..."

*Note: For all XIII discussions, stop by the Final Fantasy XIII Sticky.

And not only does XIII have big news, Final Fantasy VII is celebrating fifteen years of spikey hair, giant swords, and flying meteors this year and has an event on Sept. 2. Keep your eyes peeled on that too!

Final Fanasy V is also celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year. Wish Bartz and the gang a happy 20th Anniversary too.

Tetsuya Nomura released a hard sketch of our upcoming lead from Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Noctis for the Anniversary Event. Written next to the sketch is the following:

"Congratulations on the 25th Anniversary. Please wait for his turn to appear."

Here's some pictures of the playing cards. You can imagine how they'd lay out. There are 54 cards. -Grabbed these from Final Fantasy FXN-

LOL Peltrow, you know, this MIGHT actually teach him how to use Google (or any search engine for that matter) since he seems to not have figured that out yet (but I doubt he would). XD

Of course Kefka would be on one of the Joker cards. XD

And now I feel like I need to save like five grand just to afford everything I want. XD

I just did some math and going by New Zealand dollars (yen being transferred into) I would be paying 18 bucks for each pack of cards and 28 bucks for each travel mug which isn't too bad.

I would love the travel mugs. I know there's a coffee cup for TheaRhythm with WoL, Firion, Onion Knight, Cecil, Bartz, Terra, and Cloud on it. I want it soooooo much cause I'm a coffee drinker.

There's a Moogle Mug too!

I want those to! Granted I am more of a hot chocolate drinker then coffee (unless it is one of those 'fancy' sort of coffees) but still, those mugs would be perfect! XD

The characters are just too cute to pass up! Especially the moogle one! XD

Do you know how much the mugs are each in Yen?

Depends on where you get them. From the Square Enix Catalog (JP), it's ¥ 1,280 each.

I did however, after a Google Search, found a North American store that's selling the mugs for $11.24 each. Here: http://www.midtowncomics.com/store/search.asp?pl=16&q=final+fantasy+mug

So ordering them! But they don't come out until May 25th! emotion_0A0

Bah! >_<

Though thank you and it would actually be cheaper to get it in from America, it would be 19.56 from Japan or 13.72 from America.

I think I might wait till America gets them. XD
