Advent Children Complete is the new edition of Square Enix's computer-animated feature that recounts the story after the Final Fantasy VII role-playing game. Sales of Advent Children Complete were buoyed by the bundling of the Final Fantasy XIII game demo in some versions. It also includes 30 minutes of new footage, the anime adaptation of the Final Fantasy VII spinoff novelette On the Way to a Smile Episode: Denzel, and the new "Safe and Sound" theme song performed by original theme song singer Kyōsuke Himuro and My Chemical Romance band co-founder Gerard Way. Advent Children Complete will ship in North America in June.
