A Peek At Some Of The Pets You’ll See In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is going to have “minions”. These, Square Enix recently shared, will act as pets that you can take along with you. You’ll also be able to trade minions with other players, and one of the minions we’ve seen so far is a baby Behemoth. Here’s a peek at concept art for a few others:



Square Enix posted the above image over at their Final Fantasy XIV blog. The same blog entry also has images of the developers and Square Enix president, Yoichi Wada, checking the game out.

    I see just the edge of a baby Raptor’s tail on the bottom left of the picture!
    Also – Mini airship as a minion? Must have it. These are all pretty adorable, I was already pretty hyped for this, and this week is beta ^^

  • MikeTxn

    Baby Ahriman?!
    Square, stop making me interested in a game my computer can’t run properly.
    It hurts! ;____;

  • MLSabre

    That little fella with the red scarf sent my heart a flutter. :3


  • Charles

    They are all very cute. I just hope the glove and the airship are not real. They are one hell on an immersion breaker.

  • Joker

    Dat pet Mini Master Hand.

  • That goat, that mushroom, that dog. All of them are insanely cute. And my favourite is… All, actually.

    But if there is going to be some pig, I will die of happiness.

  • CirnoLakes

    So much cute.

    Wait, is one of those a glove? Really?

  • Solomon_Kano

    Baby airship and monster tofu! <3

  • It seems that all the pets are named Confidential lol

    • Christopher Nunes

      Aw man… that’s what I was going to name for my first pet! D:

      JK… looking forward to getting FFXIV: ARR. I might get it this time around, then again I still have my copy of the original which I never got to use (should’ve not have pre-ordered it, I don’t think the pre-order bonus was worth it or will be carried over to ARR).

      • Astralwyrm

        If you have the original pc version you can download the pc version of ARR for free.

        • Christopher Nunes

          Oh… well that’s nice. But I need to install the game though, I removed it on my old PC since it lacked the ability to play the game.

          • Astralwyrm

            Fairly certain that won’t be required and ARR uses completely different software so you would only have to uninstall it afterward =P It will probbably just require you to log into your old account when the time comes and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to be sure you have all your codes just in case.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Alright… thank you!

          • Astralwyrm

            new news: http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/threads/61031-Current-Plans-for-World-Transfers All FFXIV service accounts get access to Beta phase 3, they haven’t dated when phase 3 will be though.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Does that count towards someone who has removed/canceled their accounts? Or can re-create my account or re-install my FFXIV software to jump in this Beta phase?

            Well it doesn’t matter… my computers aren’t powerful enough to play the game right now.

  • Soma Schicksal


    • Nichijou! And I would love to have a Sakamoto-san lol =^_^=
