FFXIV: Final Fantasy XV Collaboration Event

Let me start by saying that while I own FFXV for the PC, I’ve not played it yet. The extent of my exposure to this entry in the FF series is a few episodes of the anime, which were actually quite charming in terms of character building.

I wasn’t completely thrilled to learn we’d be getting a FFXIV/FFXV crossover event which includes the Regalia as a car mount. Mostly because… well… a car can be squeezed into the world of Eorzea, but really doesn’t fit. (Neither does the Whisper or Cactuar mount… but yeah…).

However, it’s a free mount. And it’s the game’s first FOUR PERSON mount. So, even though I don’t care for the idea of having a huge car mount in game, I’m not passing up on it for any of my characters.

Turns out the event is actually pretty charming. As someone who knows very little about FFXV, I’m never quite sure what to make of the main character, Noctis. His appearance makes him out to be an angsty young adult type… and he’s a prince, so I expect him to be arrogant or stuck up. However, it seems he’s more of a bro-buddy with a lot of responsibilities on his back.

I don’t know. Can anyone tell me what he’s supposed to be?

Spoilers for the Event Ahead!
