Square Enix knows how to promote its games. Two weeks before the release of World of Final Fantasy, the Shibuya Station near the entrance to the Keio Inokashira Line was filled with fluffy Final Fantasy character figures. The promotion lasted from October 11 to October 16.
The characters featured were:
Bartz from Final Fantasy V
Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII
Vivi from Final Fantasy IX
Yuna from Final Fantasy X
Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII
The figures were soft to the touch and their form resembled the chibi version we will see in the upcoming game. They were equipped with a motion sensor that played a quote from the game each time someone passed them by.
World of Final Fantasy, the latest installment in the Final Fantasy series will be released in North America on October 25, Japan on October 27, and Europe on October 28. Check the trailer below:
