This is How Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is Advertised in Japan

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is almost out of the door, with less than a month to go to the game’s release on August the 27th.

With such an important date incoming, you’d think Square Enix is pulling all the stops in order to promote the game, and in fact they are.

The publisher is decorating Tokyo with ads, some of which you can see portrayed here, thanks to some industrious Japanese players that pulled out their cameras at the right time and right place.

Here’s a whole escalator decorated with the game’s promotional illustrations at Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara, Tokyo (pictures courtesy of Jel Klude from the Aegis server).

But that’s not all. Below you can also see an elevator inside Bic Camera at the¬†Akasaka-mitsuke¬†Station in Minato, Tokyo (picture courtesy of the Lalafell blog)


Of course there’s also plenty less… extreme kinds of advertisement, like posters and trailers publicly shown in the windows of several shops, like the one you can see in the video at the bottom of the post from a store in Akihabara.

Japan is getting ready for the rebirth of Final Fantasy XIV. Are you?
