The cafe will sell various themed drinks and products based on popular Square Enix games. There will be a total of nine themed drinks, three of which have already been revealed.
It shouldn’t shock anyone, the first drinks announced coincide with Final Fantasy VII Remake, the latest version of Square. We have drinks related to Cloud, Tifa and Aerith, and more are in the works.
The Cloud is served in a tall thin glass with tapioca pearls lining the bottom. It is a yellow citrus drink topped with whipped cream, a lemon wedge and a tiny replica of the Buster de Cloud sword. What’s even cooler is that the drink matches the character’s color palette. Square Enix Themed Cafe Will Be Opening Up In Beijing Featuring Final Fantasy 7 Remake Inspired Drinks
Tifa is available in a shorter and wider glass. The bottom layer is a form of jelly, topped with a cream-based liquid on the rocks. Whipped cream and chocolate syrup are at the top. Aerith is a simple drink made from pink fruits, decorated with flower petals.
It is unclear at this time whether the remaining six drinks will be based on Final Fantasy VII or Final Fantasy in general. There are many other Square Enix properties to choose from. We might see some sort of Kingdom Hearts-inspired article, or something to go with the company’s next release from Marvel’s The Avengers. Maybe even something about Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise.
It would also be cool to see something more obscure like Legend of Dragoon or Parasite Eve, but with only six additional options, it’s best not to hold your breath.
