Meet the Makers. Fans attending the UK launch event on 23rd February will be treated to a very rare opportunity to meet the executive producer and director of the game. Both Akitoshi Kawazu and Hiroshi Minagawa will be available to sign games and goodies, and answer questions.

Limited exclusive Moogles and soundtracks. The first 100 people to buy the game during the launch event will receive an exclusive Moogle soft toy and a CD soundtrack featuring five songs from FINAL FANTASY XII, selected by the legendary composer Hitoshi Sakimoto. The following 200 people to buy the game will also receive the soundtrack. These highly collectable Moogles are not available to buy in the UK at present and the CD soundtracks have been produced specifically for the launch event. The gifts will be available to people who buy the game between 12-2pm but you can secure your gift by arriving early and picking up a wristband, available in store from 9am, 23rd February.

Cosplay Competition. Square Enix and HMV are inviting you to join in the celebrations wearing your very own FINAL FANTASY costumes. Square Enix talent spotters will be in the store looking for their favourite character costumes. Fans sporting some of the best costumes will be rewarded with freebies. Just turn up on the day in your FINAL FANTASY costume for a chance to win.
