Square Enix shares that the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary event (which will be held in Shibuya on September 1, 2012) marks the day that future development plans for Final Fantasy XIII will be explained in detail. Full plans for the game will be outlined by a publisher during the event.
The dates for the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary event fill between August 31 and September 2. On the first day, an early demo event and opening ceremony will be held exclusively for the press as well as a few fortunate members of the Square Enix Members fan club. The days following will be open to the general public.
The Final Fantasy XIII stage, called “Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation”, will take place on September 1 at 11:30. Square Enix promises that details on the future of the Final Fantasy XIII project will be announced. The game’s producer, director, art director, and other staff members will be at the event.
In addition to this event, other stage shows being held on September 1 include a Final Fantasy XI music presentation and a Final Fantasy XIV special stage. It appears that new information will be revealed regarding the long awaited Version 2.0 revision.
The stage events on September 2 will begin with the Final Fantasy VII 15th Anniversary Stage, featuring appearances from voice actors. Later on the same day, Hajime Tabata, Yusuke Naora, and other developers will show up for a live recording session of Square Enix’s Squeni Chan! Presents radio broadcast. The main topic of discussion will be about the Final Fantasy series and where it is headed in the future.
On that note, Square Enix did not talk about any live broadcasts for these stages. We will need to wait it out and see what information is revealed by press, or those who attend.
