Square's promotional site, PlayOnline has been updated. Three updates have been made: Final Fantasy X section (System and Downloads), Music section (FFX soundtrack cover), and Events (Shinjuku event).
As a commemoration of the release of Final Fantasy X, a special event featuring FFX theme vocalist RIKKI and composer Nobuo Uematsu will take place on the game's release date (7/19) in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The event will take place at the Virgin Megastore in Shinjuku, first show at 3PM and second show at 5:30 PM (tickets will be given out starting 9AM)
The first 500 visitors will receive a free gift. In addition, the first 200 (100 at each show) people attending the event and purchasing either the Maxi single CD of FFX's theme song "Suteki da ne" or FFX's soundtrack, will receive a free autograph from Rikki and Uematsu. In addition, the first 300 purchasers of the FFX game software will receive a FFX Special sound CD as well.
Short Comment- Square President Hisashi Suzuki is scheduled to be there as well, according to dengekionline.com. Wish I had time to attend it... -H. Moriarty
