Final Fantasy VII Remake Train Appears in Tokyo, But Square Enix Cancels Event Due to Coronavirus

Square Enix is ramping up its promotion for the Final Fantasy VII Remake, but not everything is going as planned. 

An train decorated with the characters from the game nicknamed “Battle Train” created for an event announced a while ago has begun running on the high-traffic Yamanote Line in Tokyo.

Below you can see renders directly from Square Enix y pictures from Twutter users しいか, ♯影羽♯, TakayukiSaito, 智よし@グリーンアップルジンジャー, y ヤテラピ.

当選者以外の方でもイベントを体験できるよう、当日WEBでも謎解きの一部問題を抜粋して公開いたします!参加するといいことがあるかも…?また本日よりADトレインも走行中です!#FF7R #FF7

Unfortunately, as I mentioned before, not everything has gone according to Square Enix’s plans.

As announced on the game’s official Twitter account, the event — that was supposed to happen on the train on February 22 with attendees selected via lottery after an application process — has been canceled due to concerns for the Coronavirus outbreak. 

Square Enix, of course, apologized to those who were selected y were looking forward to attending the event.
