Months have passed since the magical night in which Final Fantasy XV‘s release date was announced with the push of an air button at the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event in Los Angeles.

Looks like the reckless leak of the release date hours before the gala did not discourage a large number of fans from enjoying it, as announced today via press release by marketing agency Kenwood Experiences, that worked on creating the whole thing.

The announcement reveals that the event was watched by 1.2 million gamers worldwide, from countries as far as China.

Kenwood Experiences President Daniel Pinkham accompanied the press release with a comment:

“Working closely with our global client team, we helped to deliver a communication platform that set the buzz in motion, which allowed us to connect with the fan base and the industry while moving the needle in less than an hour with pre-sold games. Combined with the Square Enix team, our team had the vision, strategy, creative, and production to pull together a highly branded, multi-channel media release that delivered pre orders and buzz.”

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

It was certainly a very enjoyable evening, with a lot of content and several fun moments. It’s definitely nice to see that it was well received, and it bodes well for the release of a game that has been a long time in the making.

Final Fantasy XV will hit the shelves for PS4 and Xbox One on September 30th.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
