Last year, Square Enix celebrated its 25th anniversary Final Fantasy VII, and to round off that event, the company is holding a very interesting competition around LEGO! The game’s official Twitter account features four of the most iconic scenes from Final Fantasy VII, asking fans to vote for their personal favorite. The winning scene will be recreated in LEGO and given away as a prize in a contest to be held later this year. The four choices are Aerith’s House, the Honeybee Inn, the Sector 5 Slums Church, and the Nibelheim Water Tower.
Readers who wish to vote can do so here. Details can be found in the tweet below.
To round out Final Fantasy VII’s 25th anniversary year, we want you to vote for one of four classic scenes, which we’ll be recreating using Lego.

It will be very interesting to see both the results of the poll and the finished piece! Naturally, Final Fantasy VII fans couldn’t help but express their desire to see official LEGO sets based on the game. Favorites like Cloud, Tifa, Barret and Sephiroth have become iconic over the years and it would be great to see official LEGO minifigures of these characters. In recent years, LEGO has offered sets based on a number of famous video game franchises, including Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog and Minecraft. It remains to be seen if Final Fantasy could get similar treatment, but there wouldn’t be a better premise than that Final Fantasy VII!
On January 31, it was actually the 26th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII. Released on the original PlayStation in 1997, the game became an instant classic, greatly raising the profile of the franchise. While previous games like Final Fantasy VI are still considered classics, it’s impossible to deny how many gamers first encountered it thanks to the series Final Fantasy VII. The title lives on thanks to spin-offs, video game crossovers, a plethora of merchandise, and the remake. Hopefully fans will be able to add official LEGO sets to that list one day!
