Square Enix announced that the long awaited Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn crossover event with Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy XI is going to begin on January 21st.

The celebrations will start at 2 AM PST and end at 6:59 AM on February 3rd, and will be based on FATE events. Initially the event will be dedicated to Dragon Quest X, prompting adventurers to fight the game’s golems for a Wind-up Brickman minion and a “Thug’s Mug” mask.

A start date for the part of the event involving Final Fantasy XI hasn’t been announced yet, but it will involve fighting a giant version of Shantotto for a minion shaped like the sadistic tarutaru black mage. Below you can see a few screenshots portraying the challenges and relative prizes.
