I’ve rarely seen as much demand for a piece of swag as there if for the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Meteor Survivor polo shirt (portrayed above, photo courtesy of Gamerescape). First created to be worn by Square Enix staff during events, then offered as a prize for defeating Ifrit at E3, fans of the game want it enough to fill a 68 page-long thread on the official Lodestone Forums.
The good news is that in the future it’ll be possible to actually purchase the shirt, as stated by Community Manager Okiput:
As was abundantly clear to us at this year’s E3, there are plenty of people who’d like their own Meteor Survivor FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn polo shirt!
Currently, we’re looking into making them purchasable at events in the future so that more players can get their hands on this rare body piece!
The bad news is that you’ll still need to go to an event in order to purchase one, but that’s still a lot easier than getting into E3 and beating Ifrit while teamed up with a bunch of strangers. As for me, I know what to look for at Gamescom now.
