posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Square Enix began streaming a 70-second video on Thursday for the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that highlights the game's Magitek Armor, a new version of the armored unit that Terra from Final Fantasy VI used during the game. The video features Terra's theme song and three Magitek-armored units walking in the snow, which is reminiscent of the opening sequence from the original SNES game.
Square Enix will release the updated Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn game on personal computers and the PlayStation 3 console, but game director and producer Naoki Yoshida has said that after Square Enix launches the PS3 version, there "might be an opportunity to discuss" releasing the game for the PS4 console.
Square Enix released Final Fantasy XIV Online for personal computers in September 2010. After criticism from fans, the company revealed an updated version of the game titled Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn that adds a new world and story. The first phase of the new game's beta test will open on Monday. PlayStation 3 players will be able to test the console version after the third phase of the beta test launches.
