Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Gets a Spectacular Launch Trailer

After three years of hard work by an extremely dedicated development team, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn finally hits the shelves today, and to celebrate the occasion Square Enix released a fantastic launch trailer.

The video focuses on the story that drives the reborn MMORPG set in the continent of Eorzea, with the forces of the allied city states of Ul’dah, Limsa Lominsa and Gridania struggling against the Garlean Empire while something much more sinister lurks behind the scenes.

You can check out the trailer below. I included both the English and Japanese versions, to fit (almost) everyone’s preference.

      sorry for half a post, fat fingers lol…

      so like i was saying i really enjoyed the JP voice acting as opposed to the NA voices….they just all seem to have more depth and emotion to them. after the lvl 15 quests i switched the voices to JP, and after watching these 2 vids i’m sure i made the right decision. Thancred and that big Uldahan oaf just totally turned me off from the NA voices. thank good we have choices.

      also despite the bumps along the way in p4 and EA, ARR has been so much fun. i got to Limsa for my first time via story quest, and i just got lost in everything there…ended up fishing till lvl 8, got armorer to 8…both arcanist and maruder to 8…and did all the class quests for each so far…there’s just so many activities!!…can not wait to get home from work and play…well…spam keypad0 till i can log in, but when i do it’ll all be worth it.

        I think that sometimes it’s just natural to like other language as oppose to your native language voiceover wise. I’ve heard over and over again that some Japanese prefers other language other than theirs when playing games. And as you point out we like theirs. Crazy weird eh.

          Exactly 🙂 Even JP players as yoshi confirmed their VA’s are NA’s because the JP va’s are like staple and common to them 😀
