The lights are on
Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles will play host to an exhibit of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 art to coincide with Square Enix’s release of HD remasters of the two titles. The exhibition celebrates the release of the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of the games, and all proceeds from artwork sold will support relief efforts related to Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated southeast Asia in November 2013.
The event opens on March 15 and runs through March 26. The opening reception, which is open to the public, will be held on March 15 from 2 pm through 6 pm Pacific. Producer Yoshinori Kitase and art director Yosuke Naora will be on hand to sign the first 200 copies sold.
There will also be a limited supply of limited edition and collector’s edition PlayStation 3 copies. The Vita version will also be available. The first 300 individuals will receive door prizes, and stations with the original and updated versions of both games will be present.
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will be available on March 18 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. To see both games in their updated form, head here for more.
Our TakeI hope the video game gallery exhibition trend starts making its way to New York. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to see concept and in-game art up close at E3 and other events. The gallery setting is intimate and encourages face to face conversation, which is a healthy alternative to anonymous commenting and sniping on the Internet.
