More Final Fantasy XIV Character Artwork Comes From Microsoft Partnership

May 15, 2013

The promotional Partnership between Microsoft and Square Enix to jointly promote Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Windows 8/Internet Explorer 10 is in full swing, and today it brought two more awesome pieces of  character concept artwork by Akihiko Yoshida from it.

The first is a lovely Miqo’te bard, while the second is a rather imposing Elzen (at least I think he’s an Elzen, it’s kind of hard to say) Dragoon.

Many are wondering if there’s more hidden behind this partnership, like a release of the game on the next Xbox console, but for now nothing really indicates that possibility. Everything seems to point to the fact that the game was never announced on the 360 was due to Xbox Live’s policies and those aren’t very likely to radically change with the next console that will be announced soon.

It’s more likely that Microsoft Japan simply wants to push Windows 8 in the country, and a strong Japanese-made MMORPG on PC would definitely give them an edge in this task. But enough theorycrafting. You can enjoy the artwork itself in the gallery at the bottom of this post.

If you want to leave your “footprint” in the text art that is at the center of the partnership you can do so by following the instructions here. Today’s theme is “What job would you want implemented in FFXIV?”

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
