Final Fantasy Yamanote Line (YL) Collaboration
Continuing on the theme from earlier, here is another example of a fantasy PS4 game blending in with the real world. Final Fantasy XV, a big, well received video game has Nissin Cup Noodles in the game you can eat, and in the real world, there is merchandise you can buy, and events you can participate in. While I was there, they have a collaboration going with JR East, the railway company that operates the Yamanote Line. At every station along the line, there were posters up and QR codes you could scan with your phone to unlock special Final Fantasy character wallpapers from all the games. So you get to ride the trains, explore train stations, and unlock wallpapers for fun. Kind of nifty!
