Final Fantasy XIII will be out in Japan in a couple days and is expected to be one of the biggest video game releases ever. There has been a whirlwind of promotions going on to make the most of the one of the most anticipated games of the year and one of the most interesting ones if Final Fantasy 13 drink called “Elixir”.

Premium Complete Box set of Final Fantasy XIII Elixir

A Final Fantasy themed drink is not a new weapon in Square-Enix’s promotions arsenal as previous editions of Final fantasy games and even special anniversaries had gotten the elixir treatment in the past most notable was 2 years ago during the 10 year anniversary celebrations for Final Fantasy VII when I even asked my readers to buy me a potion because my HP is low. My HP is low again so who wants to buy me some?

Fellow J-Blogger Aaron who is currently in Japan ran into a couple cans at a convenience store and was kind enought to adopt the poor creatures. He took pictures, made a blog post and a cool video about the drink that you should check out.
