Our Neighbours Down South Have A Final Fantasy Café…

Update: we reviewed the special set. Head here to see the verdict.

Remember that Square Enix Final Fantasy café four years ago in Tokyo? Well, someone in the company finally realized that there are a heckaton of Final Fantasy fans in Southeast Asia. Ergo, they figured it was high time they received the same kind of promo.

Better late than never, eh? In lieu of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s release next week, the company is teaming up with Avex Asia to host a Final Fantasy-themed cafe starting tomorrow onwards from 24 January until 10 February. In Singapore.

If you’re a big fan living in Malaysia, it might be worth a bus trip down. Here are the details:

Venue: Watanabe Coffee, Orchard Scotts, Singapore
Date: 24 January until 10 February
Public Opening: 12pm on 24th January 2018
Operating Hours After 24 Jan: 8am to 10pm (Sun-Thurs), 8am to 11pm (Fri-Sat, Eve of Public Holiday)
Additional notes: Ala-carte and Set Menu available from 11am onwards daily.

And here are some more pictures and promos at the place, with the latter featuring a special set menu comprised of Moogle Curry & White Stew, and your choice of either a Moogle drink or a Materia mocktail.



We’re not really warming up to the interior since it looks like any other goddamn hipster café (like the ones in Eos), but damn if that Moogle Curry doesn’t look enticing.

That’s not all. The cafe will also be selling exclusive merchandise from Square Enix’s Final Fantasy store from Japan like plushies, keychains, figurines, and rubber straps.


It’s not an extensive catalogue; where are the Final Fantasy playing cards, limited character busts, and music CDs? But it’s a start, so A+ for effort.

The full press release from Avex Asia is below and in lovely italics:

Mark your dates Final Fantasy fans!

DISSIDIA® FINAL FANTASY® NT comes to life at Watanabe Coffee, Orchard Scotts from 24 January till 10 February 2018!
