Ichiban Kuji is a Japanese lottery game that many stores and convenience stores participate in. You will usually enter the store and see a list of the prizes that you can win in the contest, and you can pay a few hundred yen at the store to purchase a ticket to give you one draw and chance at winning something great. The prizes are usually from popular franchises and can be worth quite a lot!
The recent popular game ‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ has also had a set of ichiban kuji lottery prizes. This lottery is being held at nearly all 7-Eleven stores in Japan, and those who want to buy from places other than the convenience stores can also use a purchase link!
Lottery Prize A: Cloud Strife Figure
This high quality figure features Cloud Strife, the main protagonist of Final Fantasy VII and one of the most popular characters in the entire Final Fantasy franchise!
Lottery Prize G: Retro Mini-Figures
This set of mini figures faithfully reproduces the polygonal features of the character models from the original “FINAL FANTASY VII”. Anyone who has played the original game will feel great nostalgia when they see these figures.
Lottery End Prize: Sephiroth Figure
This is a figure of Sephiroth, the charismatic and memorable villain of Final Fantasy VII. Since the End Prize is drawn only at the end of the lottery, it is especially hard to get your hands on compared to the other available prizes!
