Back at the beginning of February 2023, the Korean YouTube channel for FFXIV shared a brief, anime commercial for the game. It was basically a 15 second teaser rendering characters like the Warrior of Light and people like a Lalafell and Hrothgar in a different style. Now the full almost two minute long video is available.
The FFXIV anime commercial begins with a scene teased in the original video. A Warrior of Light Paladin and other allies are about to enter into the Final Coil of Bahamut. From there, a bit of a flashback appears. It shows the Lalafell miner and Hrothgar blacksmith from the initial teaser using ore and crafting to forge the sword the Paladin will use in the encounter. During the fight, we see other classes join in the fight, like a Red Mage and Black Mage. After it ends, a Mithra member of the raid team appears to return to their Free Company housing to celebrate the win with their guild members. From there, a major fireworks show is held amidst images from activities like an Island Sanctuary visit.
While there’s no official FFXIV anime, there is a manga. There’s the seven-chapter Final Fantasy XIV Eorzea Private Academy, which features major characters in an alternate reality where they all attend a school.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC worldwide.
