Final Fantasy 35th Anniversary Website Has Message from Yoshinori Kitase

Final Fantasy 35th Anniversary Website

Square Enix has opened a special Final Fantasy 35th anniversary website. It features a composition of the “Main Theme” of Final Fantasy, a closer look at the anniversary logo, and a special message from Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase. The website also states that, while the series is celebrating its 35th anniversary, Square Enix plans to bring “many new exciting ways to enjoy Final Fantasy” this year. However, the developer did not specify if this could be linked to potential game-related announcements, merchandise, or events.

In the message, Kitase noted that several titles within the franchise are celebrating significant anniversaries. He mentioned Final Fantasy V, VII, and XI specifically. You can read the full message below.

V=30, VII=25, XI=20

What do you think these numbers mean?

They are actually the anniversaries of Final Fantasy titles this year. Every year a number of titles celebrate their anniversaries, but if you think about it so many from one series lining up in such a way is pretty unusual.
This is only possible because of the long-lasting passionate support for each game in the Final Fantasy series from fans like you. Thank you so much.

And this year, the Final Fantasy series itself celebrates its 35th anniversary.

We will continue to work hard making each Final Fantasy game one that you will remember for a long time to come.
The Final Fantasy 35th website will support new releases, sharing info on upcoming titles and merchandise. I hope you’re excited for what’s on the way for Final Fantasy!

In January 2022, Final Fantasy VII Remake Creative Director Tetsuya Nomura and Producer Yoshinori Kitase teased Final Fantasy VII-related projects. However, further details about the projects have yet to be revealed.
