Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Developers’ Blog Post Shows Hilarious Bug, Hints at Skimpier Underwear

on March 20, 2013 3:16 PM

I spent the last fifteen minutes trying to decide if this was worth posting, but hell, it’s really too hilarious not to. I’ll even make it look kind of serious for your enjoyment, or at least I’ll try.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Localization Team Lead Michael-Christopher Koji Fox dropped a new post on the developers’ blog showcasing a rather interesting (at least for those that find what’s portrayed attractive) bug that happened on Square Enix’s internal test servers.

Suddenly all the NPCs and monsters had been transformed in hyur midlander males wearing nothing else than their underwear, as you can see in the gallery below. This actually gives us a hint on a change we may actually see in the finished game.

In the first version of Final Fantasy XIV underwear was very covering, with the portrayed male hyurs wearing a full fledged (and rather unsexy) combo of briefs and undershirt. Even while wearing a swimsuit it was basically impossible to show one’s completely bare chest, that was partly covered with a completely ridiculous vest. This time around, with A Realm Reborn, our characters may be able to show a lot more skin.

Of course we still don’t know if this will extend to other races and to females, nor if it’ll make it to the release version of the game, but you can at least start to savor the possibility to unleash the streaker hidden inside you.
