New Square Enix Party 2005 Details Announced
06.18.05 - 12:24 AM

One day before its annual shareholder meeting, Square Enix has released more information on its private event titled Square Enix Party 2005, scheduled to take place in Chiba's Makuhari Messe convention center on July 30th and 31st.

In the event's theater area, fans will not only be able to watch new trailers of Final Fantasy XII, Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, but also attend stage events.

The first event on the 30th will focus on Grandia III. Special guests will be at hand to talk about the GameArts-developed PlayStation 2 title and fans can look forward to a "big present" prior to the game's August 4th release. The Grandia III event will be followed by a live performance by five member of Square Enix's sound team. Afterwards Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu will take the stage to show off a trailer of Final Fantasy XII and talk about the newest installment of Square Enix's flagship series. At this occasion, there will be a major announcement regarding the game.

The second day will feature a special event focusing on Hagane no Renkinjutsushi (Fullmetal Alchemist) and Code Age. The Hagane no Renkinjutsushi voice actors will be joined by songstress Nana Kitade (who is the artist behind the ending theme of the first anime series and the main theme of the upcoming third game) for this event. Next will be the second part of the Final Fantasy XII premium event. Following Uematsu's appearance on the 30th, it will be the turn of the man who is mainly responsible for creating Final Fantasy XII's soundtrack on the 31st. Hitoshi Sakimoto will be joined on stage by various actors who are lending their voices to the game's main characters. Similar to the event on the previous day, the event on the 31st will also feature the announcement of new information.

Tickets for the Square Enix Party 2005 will go on sale on April 20th for 1,000 yen ($9.18 US) each. They can be purchased via the ticket service Ticket Pia or various convenience store chains such as FamilyMart and 7-11.
