Instead of showing gameplay footage montage, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV commercials have people dressed as Hyurs, Elezen, Lalafell, and even burly green Roegadyn.
Kind of a throwback to the 8-bit and 16-bit days where many Japanese video game commercials, including ones for Dragon Quest, Earthbound, and Zelda, used actors over CG.
