Square Enix and Make-A-Wish Join Forces
Here at GameOctane, we love a good story about anything game related. We also cannot pass up a great coming together of two great companies that want to take the love of gaming and good will and mix it together to one big great heart warming story. In a recent press release, Square Enix and Make-A-Wish have announced a partnership that will continue to make the dreams and wishes of children in need come true bigger then life imagined.
“It’s incredibly important for us to give back to those in need,” said Mike Sherlock, Chief Operating Officer of Square Enix, Inc. “We’re so proud to be working alongside the amazing Make-A-Wish team to help wish kids’ wishes become reality. We can’t wait to get started.”
Inspired by its upcoming game FINAL FANTASY® XV, which is set in a fantastical world of intrigue and wonder but grounded in reality, Square Enix plans to flip the script with this partnership, transforming wish kids’ fantasies into reality. Square Enix will launch the initiative alongside Make-A-Wish this September. The two companies will share additional details in the coming weeks, as well as the inspiring stories of the kids they have the great joy to impact.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Square Enix on their launch of FINAL FANTASY XV this September,” said David Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. “We are honored that Square Enix chose to expand their approach of making dreams come true in the gaming world to now making wishes come true for children facing serious illnesses.”
