In December, Square Enix will celebrate 35 years since the release of the very first FF on the NES. This year, episodes V, VII and XI also celebrate a round anniversary. A special site is launched for the occasion.
On the occasion of 35 years of the Final Fantasy licensestarted in 1987 in Japan with the very first title on the NES, Square Enix has launched a tribute site, also available in English. The highlight is scheduled for December 18, the release date of Final Fantasy 1.
This page advertises “many new ways to enjoy the worlds of Final Fantasy this year.” But don’t let the fans get too excited, nothing new on the horizon since we can see just below two titles: Chocobo GP and Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, already announced. That said, the little mention “and more…” leaves some hope for surprises to come.
The page is completed with a note written by Yoshinori Kitaseproducer of the remake of Final Fantasy 7, which indicates that in parallel, FF5 will celebrate its 30th anniversary, FF7 its 25th anniversary and FF11 its 20th anniversary as well.
Every year, a number of titles celebrate their anniversary, but if you think about it, it’s rather unusual that so many games from the same series are put together like this. This is only possible because of the passionate and enduring support of fans like you for every game in the Final Fantasy series. Thanks very much.
And this year, the Final Fantasy series itself celebrates its 35th anniversary. We will continue to work hard to make every Final Fantasy game one you will remember for a long time.
the Final Fantasy 35th site will support new releases, sharing information about upcoming titles and merchandise. Hope you can’t wait to see what Final Fantasy has in store for you!
In the meantime, meet March 18 on PC and consoles for Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin.
