Following yesterday’s news of a NieR: Automata crossover, Square Enix has announced another collaboration for its MMORPG, this time with FInal Fantasy XV.
Headlining April’s upcoming live event is the arrival of Prince Noctis, who will fight alongside XIV’s Warrior Of Light in an epic showdown against Garuda.
Of course, wherever Noctis goes, XV’s best boy mobile, The Regalia, follows. Although Square has yet to give any exact details, this looks to a new hybrid mount for the MMORPG and the first to allow four companions to travel together.
Game Director and Producer, Naoki Yoshida, and the development team have also outlined upcoming changes and updates in a live panel from the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival Paris:
