The Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event officially kicks off on January 22nd all the way until February 28th at the Mori Art Center Gallery in Tokyo. At a small press preview, two new pieces of artwork for Tidus and Yuna appeared, as well as a heart wrenching memorial to an iconic figure.
各ブースでは、“別れ”をピックアップしたシーンや音声、付随する設定画などで思い出が蘇ります。シリーズの楽曲が流れるのがニクい！ “誰と来たか”でアナウンスが変わる場所も。#FF30th #別れの物語展 pic.twitter.com/ePOrsRMTeD— 初心者の館＠ファミ通 (@DFF_fami) January 19, 2018
FFXはティーダとユウナの声を中心とした特別展示を、鏡張りの幻想的な部屋で実施。野村哲也氏の手によるFFX-2後のふたりの姿と、HDリマスター版のボーナスオーディオで原型が公開されていた、チュアミとクルグムのイラストも！！続編、来てほしいなあ…。#FF30th #別れの物語展 pic.twitter.com/occRBi10cu— 初心者の館＠ファミ通 (@DFF_fami) January 19, 2018
Seeing both Yuna and Tidus, seen in the Twitter gallery above, as more grown up since the events in Final Fantasy X-2 is sweet, in a way, for myself and fellow Final Fantasy fans, while also bringing the feels at the touching Haurchefant Greystone memorial set up as well.
The entire celebration is meant to reflect back on such an amazing and long-standing franchise, giving both new and veteran fans an in-depth look at the past as we continue to careen into the future of Final Fantasy. From fan-signing, to stunning game captures - this is a celebration that is worth noting for such a vital piece of gaming history. There's even a reproduction of Aerith's church that contains even more breathtaking artwork!
