Final Fantasy XIV gets a dazzling centerpiece snow sculpture for the Sapporo Snow Festival

The storyline for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward was not just about dragoons fighting dragons in snow. But it was prominently about the great wyrm Nidhogg, the vengeance-driven Estinien, and the way that their conflict played out across snowy Coerthas. So it seems only appropriate that their rivalry has been given tribute in the form of an enormous snow sculpture as part of the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan.

Yes, it’s an enormous wall-sized mural of Estinien and Nidhogg made out of snow, complete with projection lighting after dark to use the sculpture as part of a storytelling exercise. It’s a pretty cool and appropriate tribute to the previous expansion’s storyline, and you can get a taste of what it looks like from the photos below. (We are going to go ahead and assume that you cannot fly out to Japan just to see this. If you can, of course, let us know how it goes.)
