Final Fantasy Trading Card Game? Whoa, I totally never knew about this! I always thought the franchise was mainly console oriented.
Perhaps Square Enix wants to expand their brand into new territory to further evolve the brand, and get recognition outside of the console world. Hats off to them for that.
