Square Enix Are Auctioning Final Fantasy X Art Off For Charity



Square Enix recently held a charity exhibition at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California, titled “The Art of Final Fantasy X/X-2,” with art director Yusuke Naora and producer Yoshinori Kitase were present at the event. Siliconera was at the event too and posted photos of the gallery here.


At the event, Naora performed a live art-demonstration, featuring Yuna and Tidus, which is being auctioned off for charity. He also took questions from the audience and Square Enix have shared a summarized video of this, which you can watch above.


Additionally, brand new art pieces by Naora, Isamu Kamikokuryo, Tetsuya Nomura and a special art panel signed by ten artists from Final Fantasy X are available for action, with proceeds benefitting Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. You can view some of these pieces below. Bidding closes tomorrow, March 26th, at 11 pm.


The art Naora created at the event. No digital file exists, making it one-of-a-kind.
