Final Fantasy XIV: “Battle of Winter Wonderland”
The Final Fantasy series of fantasy role-playing video games has been popular all over the world for more than 30 years. Fans have been fascinated by, and in awe of the worlds created in the game scenario since it was first released in Japan in 1987. This large sculpture depicts a typical scene from Final Fantasy XIV. At night, a special projection mapping show is an incredible addition to the piece. A special team drawn from Sapporo’s Japan Ground Self Defence Force created this large sculpture. They have been an integral part of the sculpting team at the Snow Festival for many years.
