Because We Need A Final Fantasy Potion Every Year…

By Spencer . November 17, 2008 . 7:52am


Temperatures are dropping and the thing you need to keep you healthy is a carbonated potion. Square Enix and Suntory think so. Final Fantasy potion soft drinks are going to appear in convenience stores again in Japan starting on December 9 for 194 yen ($2) a piece. Collectors can search for sixteen different can designs with artwork from Dissidia: Final Fantasy.


White cosmos cans are grapefruit flavor. Dark chaos cans are bittersweet muscat flavor. Both tastes sound different than the Crisis Core themed fizzy Gatorade drink Square Enix sold last year. The real reason to get these cans isn’t refreshment, it’s for the artwork. Since these have nearly zero chance of being sold for mass consumption in North America take a look at all the can designs we’re missing out on.

    because I am absolutely not influenced by marketing strategies… I’d buy them if I had the chance. which I probably won’t have.

    but I really wish we had those here on this side of the ocean too.

    Nice art work, thats all I have to say *even if I am not too fond of the Kefka redone*

  • Aoshi00

    Pretty impressive Nomura artwork, I especially want the ones w/ CG Squall and Kuja, very cool to see them rendered by today’s standard, compared to their PSX days. I’m not sure if Amano’s pieces fit well w/ the cans though, his seem above commercial soft drinks.

  • Keriaku

    I really wish I could get some of that art in poster form.

    Didn’t Terra have green hair? The old ones are still in 7-11s here in Tokyo…I might get one just to see what a potion really tastes like!

  • Ryu Kazama

    I give up with this potion business…only because I have no money left to be buying such things anymore.

    RO! : Depends what potion you get. The Compilation of FFVII potions were alright. The 20th anniversary (came with Ultimania book) and XII potions were not so good.
