Smile Smile Joy Joy (and some new images)

Fernehalwes posted a new developers blog post overnight touching on the Niconico Chokaigi 2 event. We’ve re-posted it after the break. Above the break? The poster from the event – which shows off loads of minions and 3 different colored mammets!
Niconico Chokaigi 2 Poster

April 26, 2013


Fernehalwes here.

While I was stuck at my desk all day thinking up names for gear dye colors, Project Manager M was over at the Makuhari Messe convention center putting the final touches on the FINAL FANTASY XIV booth for tomorrow’s big event─the Niconico Chokaigi 2. Color me Rhotano-blue…

She sent me this mail (with pictures):


Hey Ferne,

Hope you’re having fun at your desk thinking up names for gear dye colors. I’m here at the convention center rubbing elbows with the Internet elite.

While the rest of the Square Enix staff were working away, Soken and Bucco were pretending to look busy as they played with the brand-spanking new Surface tablet PCs Microsoft had provided for the show.


I even caught Kuplo Kopo trying to illegally download a recording of Good King Moggle Mog XII. Bad moogle! Bad!


They had all sorts of colorful keyboards you could attach. Kuplo and I liked blue the best. You don’t think they’d notice if one just happened to go missing now, do you? Yeah… They probably would.

Oh, but today wasn’t all fun and games. The guys got serious when it came time for rehearsal, and pulled off the practice performance without a hitch. I’m sure they’ll be more than ready for the main event. JINX!


Alright then. I’m off to wine and dine with the president of some global conglomerate, so I’ll see you tomorrow! Oh wait, I won’t because you’ll be at you desk working on those 200 monster attack names. Toodles!

Project Manager M


I’ll deal with her when she gets back.
