Square Enix plots HMV takeover

Meet the makers, grab limited edition Moogles, enter the Cosplay competition and win a trip to Japan at the FFXII launch

Square Enix has revealed plans for the UK launch of Final Fantasy XII. From 12pm to 2pm on February 23, the world of Final Fantasy will takeover HMV on Oxford Street in London.

You'll be able to meet the executive producer Akitoshi Kawazu and director Hiroshi Minagawa and ask them about all those years of Random Battles, among other things.

The first 100 people to buy the game during the two-hour launch event will receive an exclusive Moogle soft toy and a CD soundtrack featuring five songs from the game. The following 200 people to buy the game will also receive the soundtrack.

But we're looking forward to the Cosplay competition, in which you could win a trip to Japan. Square Enix talent spotters will be in the store looking for their favourite costumes. We can't wait.
