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.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is now on sale in Japan, and the live streams have already begun. There are several around but naturally, they don’t last forever. Thankfully, some clever soul has captured over seven hours of Leta_jp’s streams in extremely high quality from the very beginning. Presumably, it’ll be updated the more they play. So if you have no patience and want to see the full game for yourself now, watch the first part of the stream below.
If you want to watch the action live from other live streamers, take a look at this thread on our forums to see which ones are currently available. Spoilers naturally.
The first video is split into three parts, each roughly 1 hour 45 long. To watch the second and third parts of it, visit this link. To watch the second video, click the part 2 video in the Other videos section on that page.
It’s only a few minutes into the 27th, and live streams of Final Fantasy Type-0 have already begun. It’s taken 5 years but Agito is finally here! In Japan anyway. Now comes the real test of whether it was worth the wait. Let’s hope to see strong sales figures so it can be brought overseas.
Naturally, that may take a while. So if you’re like many of us who are impatient, a Japanese player is playing the game on a live stream so we can feel a part of the action. You can’t get spoiled much more than this, so those of you with a strong constitution will have to try your best to resist. Click through the link below to see the stream.
Update: He’s done for the day. Here’s a link to another stream currently going on:
