UPDATE: Dissidia Final Fantasy Protagonist (And Y’shtola, Shantoto) Glass Plates Announced; June 2023 Shipments

Square Enix has listed new Final Fantasy merchandise via its official Japanese storefront, this time comprising two glass plate display collection boxes themed on the protagonists who appear in Dissidia Final Fantasy. Both sets cost ¥7,040, and shipments are expected to occur on June 10, 2023.

The first package of glass plates will depict the protagonists of the first eight mainline Final Fantasy entries, while the second package will depict the protagonists of Final Fantasy IX through Final Fantasy XIII, Shantoto from Final Fantasy XI, Y’shtola from Final Fantasy XIV, and the protagonists of Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Tactics.

However, it’s also worth emphasizing that this purchase is a blind box, meaning you are not guaranteed all plates.

UPDATE 6/18/2023: The first and second glass plate display collections are available for pre-order from Square Enix North America for $80.00 each, with both set to ship in November 2023.

Final Fantasy XVI is set to be a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist, Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.

Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.

The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.” Moreover, “there will be a “comprehensive support system in place for players who aren’t too confident with action games.”

Final Fantasy XVI is launching exclusively for PlayStation 5 on June 22, 2023.
