Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo has accidentally leaked an upcoming Final Fantasy clothing line.
While not announced officially, the series of t-shirts appeared on the company’s Vietnamese website before being quickly taken down, as noticed by Kakucho Purei.
The collection features 16 unique shirts, one for every mainline game in the series and the upcoming Final Fantasy 16, created to celebrate Final Fantasy’s 35th anniversary this year.
There’s no real consistency to the collection, with some featuring modern artwork, others logos, and the ones based on older titles showing off the games’ pixel art.
A price-tag wasn’t revealed but Uniqlo’s Pokémon series of t-shirts retail at $19.90 for adults and $14.90 for children.
Given that half the Final Fantasy series was released before any kids today were born it’s likely this collection will only be available for adults though, and the advertising (accidentally) released so far is certainly only modelled by adults.
Dedicated fans will likely scan the Final Fantasy 16 t-shirt for clues about the currently unreleased game but the image doesn’t appear to give anything new away.
An official announcement regarding the game is due soon though, as producer Naoki Yoshida said in December that a big reveal was scheduled for spring 2022.
Final Fantasy 16 is currently without an official release date but it would certainly make sense for developer Square Enix to release it in celebration of the 35th anniversary, though the game was delayed “almost half a year” as a result of COVID-19.
