Whether you are a huge fan or someone looking to expand their knowledge of the franchise, the Final Fantasy 2.0 panel is the place to be if you were curious to the origins or looking to learn more of the series from the ground up. Hosted by Cosplay Comedian Joe, the panel started at the very origins of Squaresoft as a company for a thorough back story on how it came to be. Further detail would be given about the modest beginnings, the people that would become easily recognizable as pioneers to the series, and about the last ditch effort to release Final Fantasy as the company had been in financial straits at the time of conception.
From the ground up, every Final Fantasy would be discussed in detail and demoed in various videos that the host had ready to present. For those unfamiliar to the series it was very educating and interesting, while those that were familiar with the content were pleased to travel back in time to relive their love for the franchise; perhaps learning something new! Sequels and spin-offs were also included at the end of presentation and were equally as informative as the previous.
Final Fantasy 2.0 was a refreshing panel to unwind the day to from the excitement previous. For some others the excitement had yet to begin (considering the rave was still some time away), for fans like me that would be leaving the convention early found it to be an excellent closer for the day.
