Final Fantasy XIV’s Triple Triad, Chocobo Racing and More in Action; Bask in the FFVII and FFVIII Nostalgia

on February 2, 2015 5:40 PM

While we’re still wondering if Naoki Yoshida teased an Xbox One version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn during the latest Letter from the Producer Live, one thing we do know: he unveiled a whole lot of Gold Saucer-themed goodness.

During the broadcast we saw a few videos of what the Manderville Gold Saucer (that takes inspiration from Final Fantasy VII) will bring in term of content, including the Triple Triad card game (from Final Fantasy VIII), Chocobo Racing, G.A.T.E. public events and other minigames.

We also caught a glimpse of some of the prizes that we will be able to acquire by playing in the Gold Saucer, including Setzer’s outfit, that adds a bit of Final Fantasy VI to the bunch.

But what if you missed the livestream, which was aired on Nico Nico at an ungodly hour? Fear not, as we have recorded all the videos, and you can check them out below.

If you’re wondering how long we’ll have to wait before racing on a chocobo among the cheers from the massed audience, patch 2.51, including all the goodness below, will hit the servers on February 24th.
