With the announcement of the release date for the next expansion of Final Fantasy XIV, Square Enix had plenty of other goodies to share with Final Fantasy fans. During the Fan Festival in Paris this week, Square Enix announced a new collaborative event within the MMO. The newest event will bring over Noctis and legendary Regalia from Final Fantasy XV. The new event will see the arrival of Prince Noctis, who will fight alongside XIV’s Warrior Of Light in an epic showdown against Garuda.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen these two titles crossover either. There was the Glamour Prism gear added to Final Fantasy XV last year. That event also feature Garuda.
Square Enix also disclosed the timeline of what patches will release content related to Shadowbringers and the surrounding events and content, as well as the general release dates for the new content.
