Have you ever been fighting through a dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV and wishing you had a Yo-kai by your side? Well you’re in luck because this summer Yo-kai Watch is making a guest appearance in FFXIV.
Square Enix and Level-5 have partnered up to introduce a new collaboration bringing characters from Yo-kai Watch into the realm of Final Fantasy. This summer event will allow players to take on special quests that give you Yo-kai themed rewards, ranging from colorful weapons to mischievous mounts. One of the more eye-catching prizes is the actual rainbow Yo-kai watch that you’re able to equip onto your character. FFXIV will be welcoming a novelty lineup of 13 various Yo-kais which will all be obtainable in the form of minions. A few of the Yo-kais you’re able to befriend are Whisper, Koma-san, and the fan favorite Jibanyan.
This crossover promotion won’t only be taking place in the world of Final Fantasy. It’ll also be inhabiting the upcoming 3DS games Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sushi and Yo-kai Watch 3: Tempura which are scheduled to release July 16, 2016. Two Final Fantasy familiars, Chocobo and Moogle, will appear in the games as Chocobonyan and Mooglenyan. The characters are great additions to an already adorable series. From the pictures we got to see of them in-game, it looks like Level-5 did a fantastic job at retaining the Final Fantasy feel while making both characters seem natural in the Yo-kai world.
Square Enix also said that “Further details of the collaboration event will be announced in the coming months”. This event seems like it will be a hit among fans of both of the series. Hopefully in the near future more Yo-kai will be added into FFXIV, and even more Final Fantasy characters will have a cameo in Yo-Kai Watch 3. So get excited and stay tuned. We’ll be covering all the updates right here.
