New mounts and minions are a part of every major Final Fantasy XIV update, and the Letter from the Producer LIVE Part LXXVII showed an axolotl mount and ninja dog minion will be a part of the 6.4 patch. Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida and Global Community Producer Toshio “Foxclon” Murouchi showed a number of the new additions. While extra footage of those two initial characters appeared, there were also peeks at bed and mandragora mounts and monkey and odder otter minions too.

First, here’s the axolotl mount in action in Final Fantasy XIV. It greatly resembles the Axolotl Eft minion already present in the game.

Next, here’s the ninja dog minion walking around Yoshida’s character in Final Fantasy XIV.

People can expect to see multiple new animals after the update. When going over things to come, Yoshida and Foxclon also shared that more will appear at the Island Sanctuary. People will also be able to grow new crops and place outdoor furnishings.

Final Fantasy XIV is immediately available on PC, PS4, and PS5, and patch 6.4 will release on May 23, 2023.
