Wednesday, October 11, is officially Final Fantasy Day in New York City. The day was commemorated at the Times Square Visitors' Center, where Square Enix president Daishiro Okada and Final Fantasy XII executive producer Akitoshi Kawazu were given a letter commemorating the legacy of Square Enix's Final Fantasy series. The event was timed to happen just before the October 31 release of Final Fantasy XII for the PS2. Several dedicated fans of the series showed up in costume, including three winners of Square Enix's cosplay costume contest. With the dozen or so funnily dressed people parading through Times Square, Final Fantasy Day...really seemed like any other day in New York.
