Today the Japanese skincare company Steamcream released the fruit of a brand new Final Fantasy XIV collaboration with Square Enix, the game's own moisturizing cream.
The cream is available in 75-gram tins which cost 1,980 yen each (just under $15 at the current exchange rate) including taxes. Six different designs have been released, including Job Icons, Soul Crysals, Mother Crystal, Endwalker, Loporrit, and Minion Stickers. Each tin measures 70 mm in diameter and 30 mm in height.
Below you can check out all the available designs.
They can be purchased on the Garland of Dew online store or Marui's 0I0I web store. Incidentally, while the product has been released (at least for now) only for Japan, Garland of Dew appears to ship internationally.
The cream includes the following ingredients: water, almond oil, cocoa butter, glycerin, stearic acid, TEA, oat kernels, jojoba seed oil, lavender oil, chamomile flower oil, bitter orange flower oil, bitter orange flower extract, damask rose flower oil, cetearyl alcohol, tocopherol, ethylparaben, and propylparaben.
Steamcream isn't new to this kind of collaboration with famous brands, including Disney, Snoopy, Moomins, and more. This is certainly a testament to how popular Final Fantasy XIV has become and to the broad demographics it serves.
If you're not familiar with Final Fantasy XIV, it's currently available for PS5, PS4, and PC both on Steam and via stand-alone client. The game is one of the most popular MMORPGs on currently available the planet, having pulled a basically miraculous recovery with its relaunch as "A Realm Reborn" in 2013 after its original release in 2010.
After its fourth expansion "Endwalker," it currently counts 27 million registered accounts worldwide. The game just received update 6.38, which should be the last of the 6.3 cycle, while the Moogle Treasure Trove event is coming back in a few days until the launch of 6.4. The next major update, titled "The Dark Throne" will come in late May and you can read more about its content on our dedicated article.
Square Enix also just made the Stormblood expansion accessible for a limited time with no additional purchase required to those who own the Starter Edition, while producer and director Naoki Yoshida shared his ambitions for the future of the game during a recent event at PAX East.
