Also two new Collector’s Edition items were revealed, Wind-Up Moogle and Fat Chocobo Mount. Yoshida clarified that PC and PS3 players who have already purchased
the Collector’s Edition will get these items free of charge without having to buy the PS4 Collector’s Edition.
Along with the above, clarification was also given on the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Original Soundtrack (March 27th) complete with the Wind-Up Bahamut minion.
Announcements took place regarding two new Strategy Guides that contain content up to 2.1, the first focusing on Maps, Quest and Content while the second focuses on
