In celebration of selling one million copies of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Square Enix will be running a special live stream on November 21st. This announcement comes by way of Square Enix Presents’ Japanese blog, which sheds some light on the details of the broadcast. Hiroaki Kato, FFXII: The Zodiac Age‘s producer will make an appearance, along with Kouhei Takeda, Vaan’s voice actor, and Marina Kozawa, Penelo’s VA. The blog post also says that quite a few surprise guests will make an appearance on the live stream and that fans of The Zodiac Age will have much to look forward to.

The live stream is set to be aired on Square Enix’s Youtube channel, which can be viewed below, or over on NicoNico, which does require an account to view. This stream will mark the first such video since The Zodiac Age released, and the fifth overall. The broadcast is set for 20:00-21:00 JST, or 5:00 CST, on November 21st.

After releasing earlier this summer on the PS4, FFXII: The Zodiac Age has clearly lived up to Square Enix’s expectations. A remastered version of one of the best-selling PS2 games of all time, The Zodiac Age is the West’s first introduction to Final Fantasy XII: International Zodiac Job System, which ironically never saw a release outside of Japan. The Zodiac Age is a return to Ivalice which adds in widescreen support and massively expanding the hunting system seen in the original version of Final Fantasy XII. Now, after soaring past the one million sales mark just four months after release, one can only imagine what Square Enix has planned for The Zodiac Age next.
