Final Fantasy Partners Up With Yo-Kai Watch
Square Enix and Level 5 have announced a cross promotion event, where members of the Yo-Kai Watch family are making the jump to the world of Final Fantasy XIV, but then when the next entries in the Yo-Kai Watch series release on Nintendo 3DS, selected characters and creatures from Final Fantasy will journey along with them.
The time limited event will launch this winter and feature a total of 13 different Yo-kai from Yo-Kai Watch, including Jibanyan and Whisper. Players will be able to earn special quest rewards, such as original Yo-kai themed weapons, mounts, and minions.
As part of the collaborative effort with Final Fantasy XIV, Chocobo and Moogle will also appear as “Chocobonyan” and “Mooglenyan” in Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sushi and Yo-Kai Watch3: Tempura which will launch in Japan exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. No word on if the games are coming down under and if they do, if these special characters will come with it, but even without that happening, the fun of seeing two companies with products so different, finding a way to make them come together is great.
