FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Countdown to Fan Festival 2016 in Tokyo

New FFXIV information is available on the dev blog from today. You can read the news in the quote below.


Greetings, everyone!

Bayohne here, about to start my journey to Tokyo! That's right, the Fan Festival 2016 in Tokyo kicks off next week and the North American and European community teams will be working hard to bring you all the excitement straight from the show floor!

How do I Watch the Live Stream?

The Fan Festival in Tokyo begins on the evening of December 23 and continues on December 24, ending early morning on the 25th!

Our main goal is to provide everyone the chance to see the exciting stage events as they happen and to cover the content through English-language summaries after each segment. We'll also have some guests join us! (Could THE Ben from Square Enix Europe be making an appearance...?)

Those who purchase the live stream will receive the Tokyo Fan Festival-exclusive Wind-up Lulu minion and their choice between the Abes attire for male characters (fashioned after FFX's Tidus) or the High Summoner attire for female characters (designed to mimic Yuna's outfit)!
