Bon Jovi To Help Shill Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles In Japan

Upcoming Wii release Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers will get a taste of Jersey for its Japanese release. Rock band Bon Jovi will be lending its flavour of rock to the game's overseas TV advertising.

Bon Jovi, a band four years older than the Final Fantasy series itself, will be co-promoting Crystal Bearers for Square Enix with the song "We Weren't Born To Follow" from the group's upcoming album The Circle. That album is due to drop one day prior to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers' Japanese release.

That's what we call synergy, kids. If only for the fact that protagonist Layle and Jon Bon Jovi have near identical haircuts. The rest is simply a happy coincidence.
