Square Enix hints at new Final Fantasy VII Play Arts Kai

Aug 01 // Brian Szabelski

With this year being the 15th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, you might expect to see all kinds of things to celebrate the occasion, and that apparently includes some new Play Arts Kai figures. Final Fantasy news site Nova Crystallis reports that Square Enix Merchandise General Manager Hidemi Matsuzaka has been tweeting hints about the future of the Play Arts Kai line, and mentioned a character going into production that had never been done before. He later clarified that, stating it would be a new FFVII Kai figure, namely a "President of FFVII".

The speculation, of course, is that the "president" hint refers to Shinra Company president Rufus Shinra, who has his fans and would definitely be a new figure we haven't seen before. In all likelihood, the figure will borrow the Advent Children look because ... well, that's the style Square Enix has used for the line so far. So what say you, Tomopop readers: is Rufus what you're hoping for, or would you rather have someone else?
