Advent Children's UMD Release and Preorder Info
GameSpot reported today that the UMD release of Advent Children will be coming out in Japan the same day as the DVD. This ends some speculation as to the UMD release date, and it seems that one format won't be favored over the other after all. Also coming out in Japan this September is the official AC soundtrack, which we presume will be published by Square Enix.
Second, for all you FFVII fans in N. America, I got a tip today that Gamestop is now taking preorders for the Region 1 DVD release of AC. Also, even though a UMD release date for N. America is (as far as we know) still pending, preorders are now being taken for this version at places like Best Buy and EB Games.

First Look at Last Order
Cheers to Heyburt on the Forums for posting one of the first official images for Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, an OAV ("Original Animation Video") to be included in the Limited and Ultimate Editions of Advent Children due out in Japan this September (click on the thumbnail to see the full-sized screenshot). At this time, it's unknown if Last Order-- or the other Japanese extras-- will be included in any of the international releases of AC.

Rare Interview With Hironobu Sakaguchi
Today we've posted an interview with Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, where he discusses the making of FFVII. This interview, which was conducted way back in 1997 by PlayStation Underground, was transcribed for the Citadel by affiliate webmaster Tuulisti. Thanks go out to her for providing us with this important piece of FFVII history!
Also new today is a page about the Final Fantasy VII Technical Demo (previously mentioned here), an update to the Miscellaneous Cameos page, and a new site on the Links listing.
Finally, as many of the regulars know, there has been a major attack on the servers hosting the Forums, and a great many threads and comments were lost, including the entire "Advent Children Thread" under Final Fantasy Discussion. For detailed information about what has happened to the Forums, as well as plans being made for the future, please see this thread.
