Awhile back we had heard rumblings about Square Enix Crysta being used after the merger of SE Members with SE Accounts in Japan. It seems that with the recent Square Enix Account maintenance, one of the new payment features will be “Crysta”.
You’ll be able to obtain 100 Crystal for the price of $1.00. Currently, there are no services or items that can be acquired via Crysta, however we can see from the sample image that fees for online games as well as things such as security tokens can be purchased via Crysta. With Final Fantasy XIV getting closer to release i’m sure we’ll see how this could affect monthly subscription fees quite soon.
