Square Enix sent a little holiday gift to my office this week. They're trying to make me fat, it seems.
In Japan, there's a strong tie between game marketing and snack food, so you often see game-themed snack food on convenience store shelves around a large title's launch.
That's exactly the case for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy, so Square Enix sent me a few of the products on shelves now. The candy packaging features images of Lightning Returns characters Lumina, Snow, Vanille, and Lightning. Inside it is just yummy junk food -- no chocobos or moogles or anything like that.
