Final Fantasy XIII Elixir Formula Optimized To Restore HP

By Spencer . December 8, 2009 . 1:09pm


Another year, another Final Fantasy beverage with figures. This year Square Enix and Suntory have six Final Fantasy XIII toys to collect.


You can get (from left to right): Vanille, Oerba Yun Fang, Lightning, Snow, Sazh, and Hope with an orange/grape flavored elixir for 900 yen ($10). The figures are randomly distributed so there’s always a chance you’ll get three Hopes before finding one Lightning.


Dengeki PlayStation has an amusing interview and photo gallery about the Elixir to read. To give the drink an Elixir-esque effect, Suntory upped the amount of royal jelly and caffeine. Compared to the Final Fantasy potion beverage, an Elixir has 3x the royal jelly and 4x the caffeine in one 350mL can. A one-day supply (based on recommended values) of thiamine (aka vitamin B1) and B6 were also added to relieve fatigue. I suppose all of those additives give the Final Fantasy XIII Elixir soft drink some revitalizing effect.

  • Rofl, now we know why final fantasy characters never sleep in the games

  • and something of a loss of short memory…( since it is one of the cafeine effects on the receptors of brain, but it does accelerate reasoning process as nicotine do too since the two are alchaloids and the most consumed at all)
    it would be nice if they compared the caffeine of it with the presents in coffee

    I want one.. Sounds like a red bull with even more of a kick. You’ll be bouncin’ off the walls after drinking this.

    Anyone know what the story with weapons is? There will/won’t be weapon shops?
    And if not are the permanent weapons upgradeable?

    I hope it tastes awesome. That sounds like it can be very unhealthy.

    Did anybody else notice that Squenix used the Star Trek DS9 font for the FF13 Elixir logo?

  • holyPaladin

    I want try the Elixir

    This isn’t really the right place, but this is the first Final Fantasy XIII news story.

    Famitsu’s score of the game is out. They gave it 39/40.

      Not 40? I’m actually amazed.

      • BK0000

        Nope. No 40 for it. It got 10/10/9/10.

  • Tokyo Guy

    I spotted the Elixir drink in a store in Shibuya earlier today, so presumably they are now on sale everywhere. Though curiously enough the Shibuya Bic Camera didn’t have them…

    And no, I didn’t bother to buy one so unfortunately I can’t give any comment on the taste.
