Event Description


As the community may be aware, COVID-19 (also known as “novel coronavirus”) is spreading within the East Asia region. Taking into consideration the current situation within the region, sadly SQUARE ENIX has decided to cancel the PAX East attendance of staff who would be travelling from the Japan offices. This difficult decision was based on our desire to prevent any potential spread of the virus and to prioritize the health and safety of PAX attendees and our fellow exhibitors.

As an extra precaution regarding the safety of our guests, we are planning to scale down on our planned activities outside of the show floor. As such, we regret to inform you that we will be canceling the Fan Gathering 2020 at PAX East.

We had originally planned to have Producer Akihiko Matsui and Director Yoji Fujito host a presentation at the event. However, we will be adjusting our plan to deliver this information in a different form. We will follow up with more details in the future.

Thank you.


*Update 12/13/2019*

Thank you all for your interest in attending the event! We will contact you soon for addtional details we may require, and send out invitations to those who have been accepted by January 31.

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Fan Gathering in Boston during PAX East! This is your chance to meet and talk all things FFXI with like-minded adventurers and old friends in historical Boston. Guests can enjoy drinks, snacks, and fun trivia time with amazing prizes!

To make the event extra special, we will be joined by two distinguished guests from the FFXI development team, Director Yoji Fujito and Producer Akihiko Matsui. The duo will be on hand to host a Q&A session and special presentation.

You won't want to miss out!

Can I wear a costume to the event?

While we’d love to see your creativity, we would like to ask you to refrain from wearing a costume for this specific event. As the meet-up space is limited, costumes may make it difficult for you or others to navigate inside. We appreciate your understanding! If you’re visiting PAX East, we’d love to see you wear it to the booth!
