Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival Kicks Off

October 18th, 2014 by Tony Garsow

The inaugural Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival kicks off today in Las Vegas, part of a worldwide tour that will head to London and back to Tokyo. Throngs of fans showed up for registration yesterday, with the festival proper beginning today and running through tomorrow.

Arriving on the scene, director/producer Naoki Yoshida walked a victory lap through the halls of the Rio Hotel with the rest of the staff. Famitsu captures all of this from Yoshi-P’s perspective in the video above. The man who saved Final Fantasy XIV spent time high-fiving and hugging, and engaged in a performance of /mandervilledance with a few inebriated, yet jolly fans.

Both today and tomorrow Square Enix will be streaming events from the festival through two different streams: one is a free SD-quality stream, the other is a $20 HD-quality stream that include the opening keynote and closing ceremony. The latter of which will also get you a Moogle Attire outfit redeemable in the game.
