Two posts about cars today. That’s unusual. The first was about ‘Sailor Moon’ and ‘DBZ’ Ford Fusion commercials. This is about a Final Fantasy XV Audi R8 that you can actually buy in Japan. While the marketing approach between the two companies is on the same wavelength, there are some “subtle” differences from my perspective:

  • There are many Ford Fusions, but there is only one Final Fantasy XV Audi R8 with a V10 plus engine.
  • I can afford a Ford Fusion, but I don’t want one.
  • I want a Final Fantasy XV Audi R8, but I don’t have $470,000 just lying around.

Still, some lucky bastard is going to walk away with a real-life version of “The Audi R8 Star of Lucis” when it goes on sale as part of Final Fantasy XV’s launch. Because there is only one, Audi Japan is holding a raffle where the winner is given the exclusive right to purchase the car. Interested parties can enter starting on November 21 at 10:00am in Japan. Check out more pics and a video of this gorgeous beast below. [click to continue…]

final fantasy vii monopoly

Final Fantasy VII is finally getting its own Monopoly game, which makes sense because it’s a perfect fit.

Details are scarce, but the description reads:

Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities. Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant.

Trade with fellow players to secure key location and facilities and watch as savvy buyers secure a big pay day. A roll of a dice and a shrewd business mind will pave your way to success…Just watch out in case Shin-ra bring your empire crashing down!

Final Fantasy VII Monopoly is available to pre-order at $49.99 with shipping slated for April 2017.

Nick Luciano has a pretty awesome Dad. He’s the kind of Dad that’s willing to look ridiculous on camera reenacting animations from popular games for laughs. In their latest video, he’s recreating all of the Final Fantasy VII summons using a Swiffer as a prop.

That’s right. His Buster Sword also busts dirt and grime.

Watch the video below.

The loss of David Bowie has inspired fans to create all kinds of tributes to the legendary singer/songwriter as people find different ways to say goodbye. We’ve also been reintroduced to the work of amazing artists who were moved by Bowie throughout his storied career.

One of those artists was Final Fantasy and Vampire Hunter D illustrator Yoshitaka Amano. Back in 2004, Amano was commissioned to create these drawings inspired by the Thin White Duke and they, in turn, inspired The Return of the Thin White Duke by Neil Gaiman.

Check out more art from the series below.

Artist ZedEdge gave a few characters from Final Fantasy VII a Disney animated makeover and I’m having all the feels about it.

He plans on recreating all the playable characters from FFVII and I’m convinced Disney really needs to make this movie now.

His collection so far includes Aerith, Cloud, Vincent, Cid, and a more modestly dressed Tifa. Check them all out after the break.

Harrison Krix of Volpin Props continues to blow us away with his work. This time, it’s Garuda’s Spine from Final Fantasy and, man, is it gorgeous.

He’s also making the awards for the League of Legends Collegiate Championship which you can view after the break along with more pictures of the bow. Is there anything this guy can’t do?

auron

Man at Arms is still going strong, creating yet another in its long list of amazing weapons from games and movies. They’ve just posted their latest video featuring the creation of Auron’s Katana from Final Fantasy X. It’s a truly wicked looking blade that they use to chop up everything from melons to milk to one poor trashcan that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

See the video after the break.
