Final Fantasy XIV Letter From the Producer Live XXIX Wrap-Up
A Yo-Kai Watch collaboration is on its way, also Vivi put some clothes on!
04.30.16 - 9:53 PM
Another Final Fantasy XIV Letter From the Producer Live has come and gone, and director and producer Yoshi-P has left fans of the game with some insight on what to expect in the upcoming 3.3 patch. Titled "Revenge of the Horde," the new patch will contain the standard patch affair that accompany any odd numbered patches. This includes new main story quests, side story quests, a new 24 main raid, 2 new dungeons, and will also include a few all-new goodies for players to sink their teeth into.
Anyone that was played though Heavensward can easily tell you of their unbridled hatred of all things moogles at this point. The almost never-ending hide and go seek quests the little buggers kept churning out was maddening, and it seems Yoshi-P and company want to restore their reputation with the new beast tribe quest that will star both the cuddly moogles and the dragons of the Churning Mists. Hopefully after questing with them this time they won't leave players ready to tear their hair out.
Two new additions to the game coming in patch 3.3 and 3.35 respectively will be The Aquapolis and the Deep Dungeon. The Aquapolis will be a dungeon that players have a chance of entering after opening a Dragonskin treasure map. Your objective in this mini-dungeon is to defeat all enemies to get loot, but both the treasure and which rooms open up in this dungeon will be random. The Deep Dungeon on the other hand, which was revealed at PAX East last week, will come in patch in 3.35 and is Final Fantasy XIV's attempt at an endless dungeon. Your objective in the Deep Dungeon is to descend as far as you can while collecting gear as you go. Certain floors will act as save points in case your party wipes, and some floors will contain bosses. Item level and gear from outside of Deep Dungeon will have no impact on your ability to descended the depths. Yoshi-P has said the Deep Dungeon will be expanded on in future patches with more floors being added all the time.
Level-5's CEO Akihiro Hino joined Yoshi-P for this Live Letter to introduce the new Yo-Kai Watch collaboration event that will be coming to Final Fantasy XIV. This collaboration event will not only allow players to collect minions from the Yo-Kai Watch games, but also obtain weapons based around the various Yo-Kai. If that wasn't enough, we will also be able to obtain a new mount from the event as well. You can check out all the weapons and minions below along with a video of the very weird new mount at 1:17:37 or so.
