Yeah. Perfume. Really.
I just… no forget it. I have nothing to say.
Have a picture and a link to the guy’s twitter post.
The perfume is called “Noctis” Eau de Toilette. It goes with the Cloud, Sephiroth and Lightning perfumes released in the past. Come back next week for the long awaited release of the official Final Fantasy branded super hair gel.
…urgh, I guess I have to say SOMETHING positive. Considering that they’re launching merchandise, it’s possible that we might see Versus reappear in the spotlight in the upcoming months. We’ll have to wait and see.

Square Enix’s line of Ultimania guides continues still with the Scenario and Battle Ultimania books being released on the 31st of January.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 Scenario Ultimania will cost 1575 yen (~20 USD) and consists of 512 pages. Final Fantasy XIII-2 Battle Ultimania is slightly more expensive, at 1785 yen (~22 USD) with a bulkier 704 pages. Both books are A5 size.
It didn’t take them long to reveal what we’ll be getting. Today Square released several graphics detailing the different editions Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be released in. The limited and special editions have been named as the Limited Collectors and Crystal Editions, and now we can tell you what you can expect to recieve with them. Both editions have been confirmed for North America and Europe.
Limited Collectors Edition
- A composer selected soundtrack which features several tracks from the game chosen by Hamazu himself.
- An artbook titled “The Art of Final Fantasy XIII-2″ including art from throughout development.
- Six collectible postcards, featuring CG artwork of the games main characters.
- A high definition lenticular artprint featuring Lightning.
- The full 4 disc official soundtrack to the game with premium digipack packaging.
- An exclusive Final Fantasy XIII-2 T-shirt, never to be released elsewhere.
- The same artbook, postcards and lenticular print as the Collectors Edition.
Square have also revealed a pre-order pack which includes the DLC insert, the Episode I novella and some collectable art cards. It also comes with an exclusive steelbook case.
The new editions are now available to pre-order from a few stores such as Play.com which is listing the collectors edition at £59.99 and the Crystal Edition at £79.99.
Square Enix will be holding their 2011 “Square Enix Odaiba Expo” from July 16th until August 31st (in Odaiba, Tokyo naturally). This event will be the first which allows Japanese gamers to finally play Type-0. People visiting the event will be able to buy a mini Final Fantasy Type-0 soundtrack consisting of 5 tracks from the game. The soundtrack will be available for ¥500 and if that isn’t enough, you’ll be able to buy three Type-0 themed clear files for ¥380 each if you feel the need. See the soundtracks cover below.
If you don’t have room on your mantelpiece for the a group of fullsized Final Fantasy XIII figures, you can always slum it with these miniature collectable versions. Square Enix has announced that these PVC figures of the cast will go on sale this December and it’ll only cost $60 to get all five in a box. The exemption of Fang and Vanille from the set is suspicious but they’ll probably make an appearance at a later date.
