Final Fantasy’s 25th Anniversary Celebrated With A Cake

By Ishaan . June 17, 2012 . 1:30pm

As you may know, Final Fantasy is in the process of celebrating its 25th anniversary. Square Enix producer, Shinji Hashimoto, recently tweeted a photograph of a 25th anniversary cake baked in celebration of the series:


Final Fantasy wasn’t the only Square series to get a cake, though. As you may recall, Kingdom Hearts 3D recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, and Square had a cake baked for that, too:


Square Enix also released two games in honour of both series’ respective anniversaries: Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Both will be available in the U.S. and Europe this summer.


(Sorry, no larger versions of the images are available, in case you wondered.)

    News from E3 is still being talked about? o.o

  • Draparde

    I wish there was a better picture of the Final fantasy cake. i would love to see what was on it more clearly :o

    • A chocobo at the top, Chaos and Cosmos surrounding the logo for Theathrythm, a musical sheet used as a background and moogle a top a goblin, I think, above a 25th Anniversary thing.

  • KotaroInugami

    *Clap clap* Alright SE, celebration done, finish/localize games now.

  • Darrel Daley

    Why Theatrhythm? Give me Type-0!!
    Well at least they can bake nice cakes.

    • Learii

      lol ya i agree get me Type-0 and i go to SE party

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Where can I eat these please ? :p

  • klkAlexar

    They looks great! Too bad they probably don’t taste that good.

    • why do you think so?

      • klkAlexar

        It’s how it’s decorated and how the cake has to be bake for it not to fall apart, not really to my taste.

        • I’ve had an elaborate cake like that once. Friend went crazy on her wedding cake design. I had a slice even though I was like (●´⌓`●) “This is going to taste bad” to be nice. Even saw some other people hesitating but when I tasted it… woo it was yummy! I was sad I didn’t take a picture of it ( ._.)

  • yalissa

    I love it when companies celebrate their own games.

  • Hinataharem

    The cakes are a lie.

    Fans will never be able to eat them.

  • Brandon001

    Theatrerhythm instead of type-0, wut


    • Sweet Sui ♥

      To be honest, Theatrhythm makes more sense in this case… it’s a game that showcases characters from all 13 main series games and thus does a better job of showcasing just how far the series has come similar to the Dissidia games. Type-0 on the other hand, is a spinoff title, that while incredibly awesome, isn’t really 25th anniversary material… not to say I wouldn’t want a Type-0 cake~ that would be pretty great XD lol

      • Brandon001

        this is true, i just reallllyyyyyy would like type-0, and im not the only one, but i totally agree with this

        • Sweet Sui ♥

          Of course. Type-0 is a long time coming. Trust me, I’d be spamming all Final Fantasy related articles expressing my frustration over the lack of any localization news, but I know that no good can come from it so I restrain myself. We just have to be patient ^_^

  • Sweet Sui ♥

    Hmm… these look great~! Makes me wish I could eat Riku….
    …*eep* o.o. That wasn’t intended to sound dirty at all I swear ^_^” lol

    • komiko12

      I am unconvinced. LOL
      Honestly, the chocobo is more appealing :D

  • I want that Kingdom Hearts cake (✿❛◡❛)ノ

  • Elemiel

    All I want to do now is look up cake designs…

  • Solomon_Kano

    I want that chocobo off the top…

  • Instead of showing us a cake which we can’t eat or order, how about you guys release KH3 and FF versus.. please.

  • TheInternetNomad

    this reminded me to check square enix’s members site, finally fixed the game registration page!!!!

  • Angeru_Lito

    I want a TWEWY cake thanks… when was that relesed by the way? I think is time for a sequel Squeenix

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    With cake!? I want the FFX HD rerelease and Versus XIII!! Or pizza, pizza would also satisfy me… XD

    • Oh, so the cakes were at E3? Yuck, so nobody ate them and now Hashimoto brought ’em back to SE headquarters and they’re trying to slice it into edible pieces, but it’s prolly hard as a rock, lol


      Yeah, no :3 Just my imagination I guess, lol.

  • Alexandra Cordes

    That Kingdom Hearts cake is just too beautiful to eat…

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    O.o That KH cake looks badass lol.^^ SQ!!! Where i can order this cake???^^

    • komiko12

      You can’t find that cake anymore as it has been turned into p*** and flushed down the pipes. LOL
      But yeah the KH cake looks good. :D

  • Göran Isacson

    To those wondering why we get Theaterrythm to celebrate the 25th anniversary instead of type-0, I have two theories. The kinder one being what someone else here already said- Theaterrythm really feels “anniversary-ish” what with including tracks from all the games and summarizing the series thus far, so to speak.

    The other theory is somewhat crass, but no less valid: Theaterrythm is for the 3DS which is a console that people still buy games for. Type-0 is a game for a console that the companies believe dead, AND it would be a far more costly project to localize. As such we get the rythm-game instead of the game that seems to adhere to the “spirit” of Final Fantasy.

    Money, Dear Boy.

    Why, that KH cake almost looks like it’s made out of plush. I feel like I’d rather sit on it than eat it in that case~

  • Setsu Oh

    i would have like for that cake to be a lie…….

  • Levin_Scorpius

    The cakes were later consumed by Square Enix executives at Nomura’s super secret estate (which be rest assured the walls and floors solely consisted of belts while all the doors and windows were zippers). Reports say they later drank too much and brainstormed many million-dollar seller/not stupid ideas that they quickly gave up on because that would take effort.

    Some of said ideas were the following:
    ~Fabulous~ Fabio XV,
    Admitting that the Complication of Faulty Flys VII is truly terrible and that they are sorry for the terrible things that have resulted from it,
    Tabitha’s Weird Erratic Winning Yacht 2,
    Pestilence Adam 3,
    A release date for Freddy’s Fried Venus XIII,
    Among many other things that you can probably imagine.

    In other more important news I am now hungry because those cakes look tasty.

  • Herok♞

    the reason why its those two cakes is because they are both games releasing in America this year.
