Final Fantasy XIII 'Elixir' Beverage Announced for Japan

400°
263w ago - With the Final Fantasy XIII release date for PlayStation 3 now confirmed for Japan, the announcement of a tie-in beverage from Suntory was apparently next on their agenda.

Final Fantasy XIII "Elixir" will come in 16 collectible cans, each with a different character on it.

It will be available sometime this winter, either in single cans (of Lemon or Aloe-flavored Elixir), in packages with collectible figurines, or in a collector's box with all 16 cans.

To quote: "A Suntory representative took the stage at the Premiere Party event today and revealed that, as an effort to increase its recovery capabilities, the drink is being powered up with three times the amount of caffein and royal jelly of normal products.

Additionally, each can contains a full day's supply of Vitamin B1 and B6.

A total of 16 cans will be offered, showing off various characters from the FFXIII game. The cans will be purchasable individually, bundled with special character figures, and in a limited set containing all the cans. As with the Dissidia drink, Suntory will offer two flavors: lemon and aloe."
 

Square-Enix Publishing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in Japan?

265w ago - Apparently there is a chance that Square-Enix, RPG giant, famous for the Final Fantasy series is aiding in the publishing of Modern Warfare 2 in Japan.

A new [Register or Login to view links] posted by Square-Enix, shows some Japanese text (sorry I can't read it so I couldn't translate it), and the familiar Modern Warfare "2". Also the legal info at the bottom of the site credits Activision.

This is just my opinion or view on the situation, but I believe that Square-Enix is helping to push Modern Warfare 2 in Japan, due to their strong following and support in the Final Fantasy series.

By selling the product with a widely known name, there is a chance for better coverage and spread of the product as well as targeting the company's main supporters.

Rumor: PlayStation 3 80 GB Model to be Discontinued in Japan

268w ago - I think this is another sign of new PS3 coming into town...

According to Kotaku (linked above), the Japanese stores have started to get a notice to discontinue selling the 80GB as of August 9th, which is about right before the new PS3 Slim is supposed to be announced.

To quote: The 20GB, 40GB and 60GB versions of the PS3 have been discontinued. According to this, it looks like the 80GB PlayStation 3 is next.

This [Register or Login to view links] is apparently from retailer 7-Eleven (7-Eleven sells video games in Japan) and stats that pre-orders for the Black, White and Silver 80GB PS3 will cease on Sunday, August 9 at 10am.

The reason listed is literally "For the manufacturer" – or at the maker's request.

The notice also notes that all in-store displays for the 80GB model are to be taken down. If this is true, then Japan would be left with only the 160GB PlayStation... Or perhaps there is an upgrade in store.

50°
270w ago - Role-playing-game SaGa 2: Hihou Densetsu: GODDESS OF DESTINY aka Final Fantasy Legend II is getting a Nintendo DSi remake according to Kotaku (linked above).

To quote: Know what that means? Special SaGa DSi!

The remake corresponds with the 20th anniversary of the series. If you didn't know that, just take a look at this SaGa DSi.

It says just that. And if you didn't know all the names of the SaGa games, this DSi has them written on it.

The first SaGa was released on the Game Boy back in 1989. SaGa 2 will hit the Nintendo DS this September in Japan.
