Today Square Enix revealed the dates and details of this year’s installment of the traditional Little Ladies’ Day seasonal event in Final Fantasy XIV.

The event will bring back the “Songbirds” idol group that animated the previous events, so it’s probable that there will be plenty of shenanigans to be had. The event will run from March 1st to March 14th, and the quest “A Colorful Affair” will start in Ul’Dah, as usual.

Interestingly, this year the prizes will include a Far Eastern Doll Display furniture piece, a Siren Song orchestrion roll, and three emotes with light sticks allowing players to get their wotagei fix on.

In case you missed the reference, the Little Ladies’ Day event is inspired by the Japanese Hinamatsuri day, which is traditionally a celebration held on March 3rd to pray for health and happiness of little girls.

You can check out the lovely illustration created for the event, together with the prizes, in the gallery below.

Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PS4 and PC, and recently it just received a massive update numbered 4.2 and titled “Rise of a New Sun.” Among the many changes, players can fight the iconic Phantom Train and everyone’s most beloved Final Fantasy villain, Kefka. On the other hand, the upcoming 4.25 update will come with a brand new feature titled “Forbidden Land of Eureka”.
