As previously reported, Magitek mounts are headed to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. While Square Enix have teased this in tiny screenshots before, this morning they shared a brief teaser video that shows the mounts moving. Square joke that the event planner that created the video was given three guidelines by producer Naoki Yoshida:


  • 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


Sound familiar? It should, if you played Final Fantasy VI. Here’s the result:



Head over to Square’s FFXIV blog linked to above to see close-up screenshots of characters designed to look like Terra, Biggs and Wedge.
