So, unbeknownst to me, until about 6:30, I received an email saying the Final Fantasy VII Remake 1st Class package was once again on sale. So, I rush to the page, and lo and behold, it's back on waitlist!!! I wrote Square a temper tantrum of an email...
Sorry I've fallen behind. Hope to update fully over the weekend. In the meantime, here's a fresh update!
Trading Arts: Final Fantasy VII REMAKE Trading Art 5Pack BOX Release Date: April 2020 | Price: 3,870JPY |5 Packs/Box | Size: Cloud: W66mm x D25mm x H97mm / Tifa: W46mm x D23mm x H91mm / Aerith: W60mm x D54mm x H90mm / Sephiroth: W124mm x D93mm x H106mm / Barret: W62mm x D24mm x H101mm / Base: W49mm x D49mm x H2.5mm
There's several online stores. Nothing official that I could find, and I'm wary of them because I know some of them steal art and don't pay royalties to the artists.
I personally designed my own and had my sister print it on a Silhouette machine.
My kanji is very rusty but looks like the ichiban kuji lottery mentioned at TGS is a collab involving 7-Eleven and the SE Store (Ito Yokado, which is another konbini-style store and also a subsidiary of 7-Eleven, is also involved). The lottery begins the day following release in Japan and the prizes line up effectively the same as the display at TGS. The only new thing is the reveal of the plush doll they hinted at - it's the weird koala-esque moogle:
From 12/20 to 2/2, if you spend at least 3000JPY in-store on FF7R or FF-related goods, you'll get one of these 4 collectible clear cards:
From 2/3 to 3/15, the same promotion applies, but it'll be a different set of 4 cards. No mention on what they'll be or any images of them, but given that there are full body renders of Reno and Rude, I'd expect them to be in the mix.
Necro-bump - the SE Store (both the NA and EU/UK ones as far as I can tell) are doing a sweepstake for those chronograph Cloud/Sephiroth watches. As long as you've ordered any edition of the game via the SE Store you're eligible, just log into your SE account at the point the below link asks you to.
