Square-Enix has announced that their event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the beloved Final Fantasy series will in fact be streamed live for the viewing pleasure of their fans. To be held on September 1st and 2nd, the event will be held over six stages with the main event- the reveal of the continuation of the Lightning Saga- being shown on the 1st at 11:30.
For those of you lucky enough to be able to attend the event in person, it’s to be held in Shibuya where one can win a raffle in order to view the show live. For those of us not lucky enough, the event will be streamed on Nico Nico Live.
In a recent post on their official North American website, Square Enix has detailed their plans to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Final Fantasy during PAX Prime. A live display of the series will take place on August 31st and Square will be giving out some nice prizes for participating fans.
Interesting to note of course, is a small mention of a presentation by Yoshinori Kitase, Motomu Toryama and Isamu Kamikokuryo in what SE is touting as a “special video message” which will detail the future of Lightning, the heroine of Final Fantasy XIII.
This will more than likely coincide with the information in the presentation Square Enix has planned for Japan on September 1st. As always we will be reporting every detail as soon as it is revealed so be sure to check back here in just two weeks!
