UPDATE: Hey, Look! Another Countdown Clock!

Joy of joys! Square Enix has decided to taunt us with another countdown clock. This one is set to detonate around noon EDT on August 7th. It has a big Roman numeral counting down the days and Arabic numerals for the hours, minutes and seconds. I was just on the site as it clicked down from IV days to III days, and when that happened, some smudged kanji appeared below it. I would expect that as it counts down further, the kanji will become clearer and I might be able to translate for you. Square Enix hasn’t had much success with getting these clocks down to zero before a magazine leaks the story. We’ll see about this one, too.
