Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event: all the announcements

Square Enix Japan just wrapped up a special 30th Anniversary Final Fantasy event. FF doesn’t turn 30 until December, but the company picked today, FFVII’s 20th anniversary, to set out some of their plans for this, a banner birthday year for FF.
