Square Enix collaborated with different brands for food products over the years. One recent collaboration involved the Japanese chip brand Koikeya, who released special “popoto” chips for FFXIV. The chips sold out at launch and were recently restocked due to their high demand among fans in Japan. Cup Noodle also took part in collaborations for both FFXV and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT in the past. Recently, DoorDash and Taco Bell collaborated with Square Enix to celebrate the release of FFXVI on the PlayStation 5 in June 2023.
The upcoming Final Fantasy x KFC Japan collaboration begins October 4, 2023.
