FFXIII Theme Song And Special Commercial Drink Revealed

Ever since the announcement of a Japanese release date for Final Fantasy XIII - December 17, if you've been living in a cave - the news from the FFXIII Premiere Party in Tokyo has continued to flow.

Oh boy, it must've been a party. First of all, as most of you FF fans know, it is often a tradition for each new release to have its very own theme song; FFXII featured artist Angela Aki singing "Kiss Me Goodbye," for example. Well, it's fresh-faced Sayuri Sugawara crooning "Because You're With Me" for Final Fantasy XIII, and she performed it live during the aforementioned party. In addition, Square-Enix has taken another promotion step by allying with beverage producer Suntory to create "Elixir." They've done this before - make commercial drinks based on potions found in FF titles - and they're doing it again...but this drink could be downright dangerous. According to the GameSpot coverage, it has three times the caffeine of the other Suntory energy drinks, and it even includes royal jelly and plenty of Vitamin B. Er...does anyone remember when some kid's heart exploded back in the '80s when he jammed down Jolt, Pixie Sticks, and Coke all at the same time? Well, the Japanese better just take it easy with this thing.

They'll even offer a boxed set of this Elixir. It surely won't see the light of day here in North America, but maybe that's a good thing. It'd be interesting to taste it, though...

That's pretty much the gist of it. Also, once it's out and reviewers get their hands on it we can read more about the games many systems and how it all works together.

3x as much caffeine as some other product that I have no idea how much caffeine it has...

Come on, give us a number! Coffee has about 100mg of caffeine in a cup which is already quite a bit more than most sodas. Even things like Jolt.

How about making:

-Bacchus Wine in a can or real wine bottle
- Megalixir party packs
- Esuna drinks to cure cancer, food poisoning and more
- Remedy drinks to make make everything feel better and send you to the moon

And I really hope they make a Ether (Ethanol lol) drink so you'll be able to control the elements.

(Maybe a Bacchus Bar, chocolate-cherry power bar..)

Just like how Red Bull gives people winnngs, with numerous 'n's.
