This Sunday, Square Enix broadcast its 79th Letter from the Live Producer with Naoki Yoshida and Toshio Murouchi live from Tokyo Game Show 2023. Patch 6.5 Growing Light of Final Fantasy XIV was obviously at the center of the conversion with its trailer, a bit of gameplay, its date and some new details. A funny collaboration with KFC was also announced there.

A Starter Set will thus see the light of day in May 2024 at the price of €59.99 on the Online Store of Square Enixcontaining in particular scenarios designed under the supervision of the developers of FFXIV so that novices can have fun without difficulty. On the other hand, the western version is currently only announced in English…
