Final Fantasy XIV gets its own fried chicken (again) and Daruma dolls
Square Enix is hosting a 2-hour livestream to celebrate Final Fantasy XIV, and a few collaborations have been announced.
Square Enix is hosting a 2 hour livestream to celebrate Final Fantasy XIV, and some cool collaborations have been announced.
First, the Japanese convenience store chain Lawson will have another chance to make the game’s official Karaage Kun Fried Chicken.
The delicious nuggets (I guess, but the original flavor was good) will come in a special “crystal clear and dark flavor”. It will actually consist of two flavored layers, one will taste like dark petter and the second will be flavored with a light tartar sauce.
Of course, the flavor was better by the team at Final Fantasy XIV.
For something a little more traditional, the game also features a duo of traditional-type Daruma dolls designed by the prestigious Yoshida Daruma company that has been creating them for over a century.
Pre-orders in Japan will be limited as the daruma will be hand painted. No information has been promised on a Western release (unlikely). The price will be 3,500 yen (about $ 32).
The product will be delivered with empty eyes, as you are traditionally supposed to paint your own.
You can check out both products in the gallery.
Incidentally, the new expansion for Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker will be released on November 23, 2021 on PS5, PS4 and PC. A benchmark will be released tomorrow for PC, including male character creation viera.
If you want to know more about it, you can check out the reveal of the extended trailer and the work of the reaper, as well as the male viera, locations, and release date.
You can also check out plenty of official screenshots and artwork, the original announcement, tons of initial details, and the first official screenshots and artwork.
If you’re not familiar with Final Fantasy XIV, it’s currently available for PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC. Upgrading to PS5 is free for those who own the PS4 version.
