Although Square Enix is currently working on “Final Fantasy XV,” the company recently took a little bit of time to reveal the anniversary plans for “Final Fantasy VII.” According to a report from Square Portal on Jan. 31, the publisher announced the pre-order sales for Static Arts Mini figures.
The small statues are based on three characters from the “Final Fantasy VII” video game: Cloud Strife, Sephiroth and Tifa Lockhart. The figurines are five inches tall and feature super-deformed iterations of the three individuals. Square Enix stated that the collection is “perfect for a display case” for any fan of the series. You can check out the products, along with screens from the aforesaid “Final Fantasy XV,” in the slideshow to the left of this article and the comments from the publisher below:
Our new line of adorable chibi figure series is making its debut with your favorite FINAL FANTASY VII character, Tifa Lockhart! Cloud Strife and Sephiroth also appear in this chibi form, so be sure to complete your collection.
Not too big, and not too small… these 5-inch statuettes are just the right size for your collection, and perfect for a display case or a desk of any FINAL FANTASY fan!
“Final Fantasy VII” was released for the original Playstation console on Jan. 31, 1997, in Japan. The software product helped make Japanese role-playing games mainstream in the west. Unfortunately for Square Enix, the company has not replicated the same critical and financial success with the subsequent installments.
The latest attempt from the publisher is “Final Fantasy XV,” which was first called “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” when it was announced in 2006. The upcoming title will be coming out for the PS4 and Xbox One although a release date time frame has not yet been announced.
