Live in the San Francisco/Bay Area? Like Final Fantasy and heavily zippered protagonists? Enjoy standing in line with people of similar interests? If you answered yes to at least two of those, but most importantly the first one, then you should prepare thyself for March 25 and the launch event for Crisis Core %26ndash; Final Fantasy VII.
The Shinra shin-dig is going down at the PlayStation Store in the Metreon shopping complex. Y%26rsquo;know, the Metreon? It%26rsquo;s on 4th, a few blocks down from the Powell Bart Station, kind of near the Moscone Center. If little of that made sense, then you probably don%26rsquo;t live in the Bay Area, thus making it difficult to get to this event.
But if you do live in the area, then you can line up outside before the doors open at 6:00 PM to get your copy of the game. The first 100 people in line will get a special event t-shirt and there will be tons of neat prizes going around. Most interesting is that Square is giving out Shinra ID cards that can have your name and picture on them.
In summation, you should line up right now, before someone else gets in line ahead of you. That Red XIII costume will only smell better after five days of wear.
