Merchandising! Square Enix loves to do it. And with lots of people wearing masks in Japan, the Tokyo-based game maker saw an opportunity.
Update March 3 - 11:40am: As one Kotaku reader points out, these masks are also available through the North American website.
As well as one covered with job icons:
The masks, which are made from cotton, polyester and polyurethane, are each priced at 1,000 yen ($9.35). And if that’s not enough (it’s not, apparently!), Square Enix is also releasing a 2,500 yen ($23.40) mask case.
Whatever gets people to wear masks, really!
