FFXIV Producer Yoshi-P Comments on Infamous Grape LINE Stickers

FFXIV Grape Stickers

During the FFXIV Letter From the Producer Live 74, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida commented on the appearance of the infamous grapes that reemerged as LINE stickers. The hexagonal cluster of grapes received a fair amount of attention online, which then caused the frivolous environmental item to become something of a joke throughout the community. Eventually the shape of the grapes were changed through an update patch.

However, Yoshi-P had this to say about the grapes during the FFXIV Letter from the Producer livestream:

Ah, these grapes. We fixed these in the game! You literally cannot see them anymore! When would you even want to use this sticker? Maybe if you’d want to say “Oh, this is low quality” then you’d send it? I feel like certain people wouldn’t understand, haha.

Despite the grapes having received notoriety outside of the FFXIV community, Yoshi-P is convinced that the context of the stickers won’t come across. That said, the stickers themselves are only available to download in Japan. Which means that if you’re outside of the region, despite having a LINE account, you won’t have access to download it.

Outside of the announcement of the grape stickers appearing on LINE, the broadcast included the release date for Patch 6.3. Alongside other content that will appear in Final Fantasy XIV once the update is live.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and the release date for patch 6.3 will release in early January 2023.
