Armour-ed: Toma Ikuta's costume in his new commercial

With more than 970 million copies sold worldwide, the TV ad for the latest Final Fantasy series installment, Final Fantasy 14, depicts Ikuta in an armour costume as he goes off on an adventure with his avatar friends.

The star revealed he had been a fan of the series for years.

“I’ve been playing Final Fantasy since I was at primary school.

“I was really excited to be inside the Final Fantasy world.  There was so much attention to detail on my armour it got me hyped up and it was a lot of fun,” he said.

Ikuta also revealed he got hooked on online gaming while playing Final Fantasy 11.

“I used to sacrifice my sleeping time and just kept playing it,” he said.

While trying out Final Fantasy 14 at yesterday’s event, Ikuta had plenty to say about it.

“First of all, the graphics are amazing!  Getting a team together online, and going out and fighting monsters together is a big part of Final Fantasy 14.  I hope everyone gets fired up with their friends,” he said.

Ikuta’s TV commercial has both 15 and 30 second versions, and will go on air in Japan from September 22.  Final Fantasy XIV for Windows will go on sale from September 30 while the PS3 version is scheduled to be released in March 2011.
