Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Opening Movie Now Live

Wickedly awesome new cutscene that picks up right after the events of November... news is all on the Lodestone and on the official Square Enix you tube channel.   Next bit of exciting new is the launch of Beta applications, so definitely read the eligibility requirements and apply.

But enough of that, here's the new opening video...

I also snapped a few screenshots from the new video for further analysis and here's a handful of them.  First up, our "Crystal?" heroes are back and by the Twelve, do they look knackered...

Can't wait to do all the possible quests and missions related to them (while helping them get their gear dry cleaned).   Fortunately though, they do have their mounts... btw the way, notice how our grown up Warrior hero has a "Legacy" chocobo?

Speaking of chocobos, the next image of the Maelstrom rider blistering with speed at the head of the pack was spiffy... highly fitting because Limsa will always lead provided we have our beloved Admiral Merlwyb...

Ahh yes... by the way, it seems the much anticipated coliseum will indeed be just off the (east?) coast of Limsa...

 Our main scenario heroes are also back...

And of course, the mysterious Odin... once again, it strikes me very curiously that he bears a weird resemblance to the Garlean Emperor Solus Zos Galvus, innit?

I'd say my verdict for the new video is that it is  superbly done and hints about several aspects of the game without giving too much away.  Love it.  

Now all we need are more images of the  Garlean Empire and the appearances of the other thirteen Legatus (because Darnus' VIIth legion should have been replaced by now... unless they were absorbed by Gaius' XIVth thus making him the Legatus of both legions?).  Or perhaps Nael had a young son, younger brother, or even sister who takes over?  Hmmmm... plots within plots and this should make for some really wicked storylines.

Speaking of which, I'm calling it yet again... I predict that one of the Emperor's female children or relatives (a daughter? niece? grand-daughter?) is  one of the powerful Imperial Legatus.

Anyway, be well everyone.  As always everyone, please remember that all the official videos and images from SE were used here strictly for fan purposes; and all the product, system names and/or company logos remain the registered trademarks of Square Enix.  Copyright (C) 2010-2013 SQUARE ENIX CO.
