FFTCG is currently localized in seven languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.

The game’s tenth expansion pack, titled Opus X: Ancient Champions released earlier this month and marked over 200 million total cards shipped worldwide for the series. Opus X enhances the play experience and collectability of FFTCG, featuring popular characters from titles such as FINAL FANTASY III, XI, XII, BRAVE EXVIUS®, and more.

Our thoughts: When I first tried to get in to trading card games (when I was like 12) I decided that I was too old for Pokemon and Magic was too mainstream so I choose the Star Wars trading card game. Which was a cool game, except nobody I knew played! After failing to convince any of my friends to try the game I just kind of gave up and started buying Magic cards so I could play with them. I see a similar problem here. But, hey, if Square-Enix is willing to support their game with tournaments, at least you can find people to play with!
