Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here!

Today's the big day—FINAL FANTASY XIV is now available on the PlayStation 4!

Once again, our team in Europe created an awesome PS4 trailer that we're excited to share with you.

In Japan, they also created this really cool 15 second TV commercial!

We had a lot of fun searching around Twitter for players sharing their excitement over the launch and showing off their new Collector's Edition goodies! Take a look at some of the images we really liked! (Click the images to see their full size!)

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here with some surprising news!

It turns out the whole Favour system was a complete fabrication! I know, I know. I wanted it to be real, too. Fans of the system...don't worry!

It's been really hard to keep this secret, but it's finally time to let the coeurl out of the bag!

Today we'll be discussing the upcoming "Favour" system! This new system will allow adventurers to grow even closer to their favorite NPCs. Have you held out hope that one day Minfilia will look your way for longer than a cutscene? Or perhaps you offer gifts to Merlwyb to try and win her over? Well, that's what the Favour system is for!

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here with an event report for you all!

Last week, the latest edition of our live FATE event series took place in Sapporo, Japan! I'm sure many of you are interested to hear about what happened at the show, so allow me to share the juicy details.

First up was the Battle Challenge area:
Full parties of eight took on a special event version of the Minstrel's Ballad: Ultima's Bane battle.

We also had an area set up for attendees to play THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY: Curtain Call on the Nintendo 3DS!

(Actually, these two should probably have been busier working the event... We should have a talk...
