Be a boss in the Gestahlian Empire's mechanical walker.

Square Enix has released a new Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn video highlighting the Magitek Armor walker.

The walker, which debuted in Final Fantasy VI, is a mechanical weapon able to fire beams of magical energy. It is unknown whether it will serve the same purpose in Final Fantasy XIV, however.

    Oh wow, this is just shameless fan service…

    And I love it!

    Who needs Chocobos now?

    • Adol Christin

      Nothing! Nothing can ever replace Chocobos.

    Sweet. I remember the director saying he’d like to implement VII’s Golden Saucer down the line as well. I really like the idea of iconic elements from the previous games finding their way in with no pretense, just appearing because they’d be cool to see.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’d sure like to see that!

    • MosquitoLemon

      That was basically the whole idea behind FFIX, maybe this will be the same, but for the newer games?

      • Solomon_Kano

        The director also mentioned FFIII’s Crystal Tower, so right now it’s looking like everything PS1 and back is fair game.

        While IX was more like a tribute, this looks to be a straight import of iconic bits and pieces of the previous games.

        • MosquitoLemon

          There was an article I read where they showed piece by piece, big iconic FF stuff from every single game (I-VIII) that was embedded into IX. I’ll try to find it sometime.

  • Sevyne

    That’s pretty awesome, but everywhere you go you are going to hear that clanking constantly. Everyone will be walking around with them.

  • Adol Christin

    I hope they implement more stuff from past FF games. Particularly, VII, VIII and IX.

  • Ritsujun

    Chocobos ate Mecha Mecha Fruits.

    The more Final Fantasy nostalgia in FFXIV the better! Now the real question is, can you dress up your own characters to look like Terra, Biggs, and Wedge =3?

  • sonyntendo

    Oh Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Terra!

    Now I can relive a bit of FFVI on PS3. So fortunate.

    • Simmsville

      You know that you can just buy FF VI from PSN to play on your PS3?

  • Ace

    This looks like a metal chocobo.

  • Tetsu

    Well, that’s just…AWESOME!

  • DichaTesoro

    Okay, now just make the rest of the game!
    And, goodness, that music!

  • LordKaiser

    So they are dumping all FF games into this?
