As teased last month by Square Enix Merchandise General Manager, Hidemi Matsuzuka, the character who had never been commercialized before is here. As widely expected, it’s Rufus Shinra.
On display at TGS, the prototype Play Arts has appeared unpainted. Given Square’s obsession with everything Advent Children, it’s no surprise that Rufus has been styled in that manner. No release date has been given for his debut, but it’s certainly exciting to see one of Final Fantasy VII’s unsung characters represented in great detail.
