Square Enix has kicked off the 30th Anniversary of the Final Fantasy franchise. To celebrate 30 years of Chocobos and crystals, Square created a brand new website (that plays a beautifully orchestrated rendition of the main Final Fantasy theme). This site includes a news section and a constantly updated “#FF30TH” Twitter section. Both contain various announcements that will please any fan of the franchise.
When Final Fantasy XV was released, Square Enix promised to support the game with various updates and DLC packs. The first step is the game’s initial piece of DLC, Episode Gladio, teased with a release date of March 28th. While we know it will feature Gladiolus as a playable character, Square has said little else about the DLC. Square Enix will also release Booster Pack on February 21st that will feature color-coordinated Power Rangers-esque Magitek Exosuits. Oddly enough, this Booster DLC pack was teased on the game’s official Twitter page instead of the 30th Anniversary website.
While Square Enix has been mostly silent on the much-anticipated Final Fantasy VII remake, the anniversary site includes some needed Remake related news. Sadly, this information is relegated to an admittedly beautiful piece of official artwork and the announcement that Cloud Strife will finally be added to Final Fantasy Brave Exvius on February 6th.
The final bit of news Square Enix used to kick off the 30th Anniversary is that the remaster of Final Fantasy XII, titled Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, will finally release on July 11th for the PlayStation 4. This new version of the game will come with updated HD visuals, trophy support, and the improved Zodiac Job System from the international version of the original game. The game is also rumored to have a PC version in the works.
We expect the 30th Anniversary website to be updated with new information in the near future. Stick with Gamespresso for continuing coverage on the anniversary celebrations.
