Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter World team up for a bizarre collaboration

Fancy some Monster Hunter in your Final Fantasy XIV? How about a bona fide Monster Hunter World collab? That’s what you’re getting, according to Square Enix’s E3 presser today. It sounds as if FFXIV players will be pitting themselves against the iconic “Rathalos” from MHW “this summer.” According to the landing page, you’ll need to be level 70 and own Stormblood to participate.

“The partnership unites two beloved and wildly successful titles, with FINAL FANTASY XIV Online currently boasting over 10 million registered players worldwide and Monster Hunter: World having shipped over 8 million copies since its release in January 2018. This special collaboration event will bring new challenges to players of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online featuring characters from Monster Hunter: World to the world of Hydaelyn.”

Everyone’s excited about this collab, but I’m just left wondering how we can get bizarre crossovers like this, Yokai Watch, and Garo, but can’t get crossovers with actual SE properties like Nier and FFXV.

Yeah it’s weird that they still haven’t done a XV crossover when they’ve mentioned one coming a long while ago.

The thirst for 2b and Khaine’ outfits, like the thirst for viera, keeps Yoshi P from melting as he comes from the same bloodline as Gackt

I am here for this collab. I want a palico minion, and a bbq spit furnishing item, and MHW-inspired armor and weapon sets. I can dream! Whatever the contents, this event coming to FFXIV makes me really happy. I’ll be even happier when MHW finally makes its way to PC, but this will be a fun little thing to give me my fix of the Monster Hunter IP until that day.

It’s less bizarre than the Yokai Watch and GARO crossovers. Or the one PSO2 did with XIV.
