Recently, Final Fantasy XIV released its 5.3 patch, adding more content to the game and some adjustments. Soon after, the Moonfire Faire started in the game, allowing players to get some new summer clothing. Now, Square Enix has announced the next event that will be coming to the game.
Starting on August 19th, you will be able to take part in a Yo-kai Watch Crossover Event. First appearing back in 2016, and a re-run of the event in 2017, this is the first time the event has been back since its last re-run.
In the event, you will have to opportunity to get new Yo-kai Watch-themed items. To begin the quest, you will need to talk to "Poor-heeled Youth" who is located in Ul' dah at the Steps of Nald (X:9.2 Y:9.1). To start the quest, you will need to be at least level 15 and have completed the following Main Scenario Quests: "The Gridanian Envoy," "The Lominsan Envoy," or "The Ul' Dahn Envoy."
The quest will give you the "Yo-kai Watch" and the "Yo-kai Medallium." Once you receive these items, you can equip the watch and participate in event-based FATEs to earn Yo-kai Medals, which can be used to get the event items.
You can get your hands on new Yo-kai-themed Minions and Weapons.
Katana of the King's Counsel
Glaives of the Dark Princess
Rapier of the Serpent Lord
Gunblade of the Yo-kai King
The event will run from August 19th to whenever the patch 5.4 update is released, so you have some time to get those Yo-kai medals! You will also be able to get previously released minions and weapons from the earlier events, so you are not limited to the ones above.
You can find the full details of the event over at Final Fantasy XIV's official website here.
