Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Magitek Armor Reveal

New info on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has come up at the FinalFantasyXIV.com blogs revealing the game’s Magitek Armor.

Hello all!
Fernehalwes here.

I’m assuming many of you caught the 6th Producer Letter Live, but for those of you who didn’t, here’s a link to the section that created the most buzz─the magitek mounts!

Supposedly, the idea for this sample video came the day before the performance. Yoshi-P, wanting something utterly epic, came to one of the event planners (we’ll call him ‘H’), and gave him a list of demands:

There must be three riders
They must be traversing a snowy mountain trail
The girl must look like a former imperial soldier suffering from amnesia who is being controlled by the Empire with a Slave Crown

Et cetera.

Luckily, H was up to the challenge, and despite the lack of prep time, was able to whip up a fairly faithful recreation of a “certain” classic RPG’s opening scene. Right down to their imperial uniforms!

She looks awfully familiar

And then there’s this shot which didn’t make it into the final video

Now THAT brings back memories…
