This year marks the 35th anniversary of the first Final Fantasy game, which originally debuted on December 18, 1987. Square Enix has some plans in store for the series and its various offshoots, and you’ll be able to keep up with them thanks to a newly launched 35th anniversary website.
In addition to highlighting new titles like Chocobo GP and the upcoming Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, the site includes a message from Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase.
V=30, VII=25, XI=20
What do you think these numbers mean?
They are actually the anniversaries of FINAL FANTASY titles this year. Every year a number of titles celebrate their anniversaries, but if you think about it so many from one series lining up in such a way is pretty unusual.
This is only possible because of the long-lasting passionate support for each game in the FF series from fans like you. Thank you so much.
And this year, the FINAL FANTASY series itself celebrates its 35th anniversary.
We will continue to work hard making each FINAL FANTASY game one that you will remember for a long time to come.
The FF 35th site will support new releases, sharing info on upcoming titles and merchandise. I hope you’re excited for what’s on the way for FINAL FANTASY!
Stay tuned for more as we see what else the site has to offer building up to the official anniversary date this December.
