Final Fantasy XIV recently got its Patch 5.3 update but its Yo-kai Watch collaboration event won’t arrive until next week on August 19, 2020. The Yo-kai Watch collaboration event will also feature four new Yo-kai Minions and weapons in its return.
The Yo-kai Watch collaboration event first appeared in 2016 and it returned for a rerun in 2017. The event hasn’t returned since then, but with the recent revamp to A Realm Reborn areas, it’s a good time to bring it back. Furthermore, players can now fly in the ARR areas, so it should make FATE farming that much less of a pain.
Adventurers can start the quest by speaking to the ‘Poor-heeled Youth’ NPC located at the Steps of Nald (X:9.2 Y:9.1) in Ul’dah. It has a minimum level requirement of 15 and players must first complete one of the following Main Scenario Quests: “The Gridanian Envoy,” “The Lominsan Envoy,” or “The Ul’dahn Envoy.” After receiving a “Yo-Kai Watch” and “Yo-kai Medallium” you can go out and collect Yo-kai Medals by equipping the watch and participating in FATEs.
Check out the new Yo-kai Minions added for the Final Fantasy XIV Yo-kai Watch collaboration event:
And here are the new weapons to match the four Yo-kai:
Gunblade of the Yo-kai King (Gunblade)
New Gunblade weapon based on Lord Enma.
Rapier of the Serpent Lord (Red Mage)
New Red Mage weapon based on Lord Ananta.
Katana of the King’s Counsel (Samurai)
New Samurai weapon based on Zazel.
Glaives of the Dark Princess (Dancer)
New Dancer weapon based on Damona.
The Final Fantasy XIV x Yo-kai Watch collaboration event will be available starting August 19, 2020 at 1:00 am PDT. It will end with the release of Patch 5.4. You can check out more info for the event at the official website.
