Square Enix Online Store Update


Square Enix fans still looking for items to put on their holiday wish list have more merchandise goodies to choose from now. Square Enix recently updated its official online store with a number of cool new items.

The Final Fantasy Series Trading Arts Mini Set Vol. 1 has become available for purchase, featuring four collectable miniatures of Cloud from FFVII, Rinoa from FFVIII, Yuna from FFX and Vaan from FFXII for $16.99. To compliment the popular Play Arts action figures, Square Enix is also now selling Final Fantasy Play Arts Arms, a set of five weapons used to further deck out your FFVIII and FFX figures, including Squall’s “Lion Heart,” Selphie’s “Strange Vision,” Tidus’s “Caladbolg,” Yuna’s “Nirvana” and Auron’s “Masamune.” And shoot, even if you don’t have any of the characters, it’d still be cool to have the mini weapon replicas alone. The weapon set is priced at $29.99.

Stemming from the recent Final Fantasy XI 2007 Fan Festival, the online shop’s virtual store shelves are now lined with a nice variety of collectible merchandise based on the MMORPG. Included in the new FFXI product lineup are four key rings — three depicting the national emblems of Bastok, Windurst and San d’Oria and one a 5th Anniversary edition stamped with a running chocobo logo — two mascot mobile phone/handheld straps (these actually aren’t coming until late December), a baby chocobo plushie, and a series of three silver rings — one each for the Bastok, Windurst and San d’Oria nations. Unfortunately, if you didn’t hop on these items already you’ll be out of luck for now, as everything but the Bastok, Windurst and San d’Oria key rings and one size of the Bastok silver ring have already been sold out according to the online store listings. Check the gallery below for full-sized pics of all these items.

And on one final note regarding a special item that’s on the horizon, Square Enix has provided a sneak peek of a sweet Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Masterpiece Arts Cloud figurine modeled under the supervision of Tetsuya Nomura himself. The Cloud Masterpiece Arts is scheduled to hit the online store in late December, so keep an eye out. Don’t have a full shot of the figure, but here’s the small image that was provided in the newsletter I received.
