A 2nd Nico Nico Impression

Greetings, everyone!
Community manager Bayohne here, reporting for blog duty.

Over the weekend, Yoshi-P made his second appearance on Nico Nico to show off a Realm Reborn and brought along some goodies.

To kick things off, he revealed a brand new video, “Eorzea Collection 2013,” that showcases a wide variety of characters and outfits that you’ll encounter in the realm. Keep an eye out for some new surprises in the video, too! (I wonder if people noticed the [redacted] and [redacted]?)


The swanky set up over at the Nico Nico studio.

Next up, Yoshida demonstrated the soon-to-be-released character creation benchmark software on the Microsoft Surface Pro. The new benchmark, scheduled for release on August 1st, will allow you to save your character appearance data and easily import it into the release version. (I know I’ll be spending a few hours getting my character juuuuust right. And then scrapping it and starting over…)

The team formed a 4-person party and tackled Ifrit and Brayflox’s Longstop using the duty finder. Yoshi-P was assigned the healer role, in part to ensure the team made short work of both. (I’m sure he did fine!)

The stream also held a contest between the hosts to see who could design the prettiest girl they could, with users then voting to decide the winner. (Of course, Yoshida’s Lalafell won…)

Slowing things down a bit, the hosts invited beta testers to gather in Thanalan to explore the landscape while on chocoback!

With that, the show came to a close. But never fear, for your next opportunity to see Yoshida live will be the next Letter from the Producer LIVE Part VIII scheduled for August 8th!

See you on the forums!

  1. surprises in the video, too! (I wonder if people noticed the [redacted] and [redacted]?)
    Whats he mean I wonder? Some of the armor designs I didn’t really associate with any jobs, but the pirate girl could just be wearing quest given armor. The armor I was most curious about they did show pretty quickly, though.

    1. Probably things like Job Equipment, maybe a new emote or two, fun equipment like mentioned earlier (Behemoth mask), and the Warrior face-toggle sorts of things. I’m sure there’s something with some of the areas though, too, besides the Behemoth. I wonder if we saw Ishgard…?

  2. I’m glad we can use the mask on warrior now! That’s the surprise that really caught my eye. They really throwing a lot of work into this game, I hope to see more after years to come in FFXiV.
