Final Fantasy series has come a long way. Next year will be the series’ 30th anniversary, and therefore, Square Enix will be celebrating Final Fantasy‘s 30th anniversary with an event. The event will be called Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Opening Ceremony, which will be held at the TOHO Cinemas venue within the Roppongi Hills complex in Roppongi, Tokyo, on January 31 (which also happens to be Final Fantasy VII‘s 20th anniversary).
Final Fantasy Brand Manager Shinji Hashimoto, who is assumed also to be the General producer of the event, will be hosting the presentation.
The admission for the event will be free, but it will only be available for 200 people, and will be selected through raffles among those who submitted their application here before January 9. To enter the raffle, a Japanese Square Enix Members account is required.
The event in Roppongi Hills marks the beginning of the Bra ★ Bra Final Fantasy Brass De Bravo concerts that will be held throughout the year, starting on April 2nd at the Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in Shinjuku. There will be a total of eighteen concerts in fifteen different prefectures in Japan. The concert will be performed by Siena Wind Orchestra, and also Composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Another event that will be held as a part of the huge project is at the Sapporo Snow Festival, starting from February 6 to February 12, which will be held in the capital of Hokkaido.
As we mentioned before, the date of the opening ceremony also happens to be Final Fantasy VII‘s 20th anniversary. To celebrate, an ice statue titled “Final Battle! Snow Final Fantasy” will be displayed, showing Cloud and Sephiroth’s climatic battle with addition of special effects and 7.1 surround sound system.
The peak of the event will be at the end of 2017, as the first Final Fantasy game was released in Japan for Nintendo Famicom on December 18, 1987.
