Final Fantasy XIV update 6.3 "Gods Revel, Lands Tremble" is just around the corner, and Square Enix has showcased its most compelling asset in a new video.
The video provides a brief but intense look at the Corgi minion that will be available to players once the patch hits on January 10. Predictably, this good boy is absolutely adorable. Judging from the video, looks like Square Enix's animators have pulled all the stops to make the minion one of the most sought-after items from the patch.
As usual with new minions, the way to unlock this lively companion has not been revealed just yet, but you can pretty much bet that many, many players will make it their first priority as soon as the servers open. You can see why in the video below.
If you're unfamiliar with Final Fantasy XIV, minions are cosmetic pets that follow your character around outside of dungeons. They have no gameplay purpose beyond the "Lord of Verminion" minigame that can be played in the Gold Saucer, but much like mounts, they have become a prized collectible among many players.
Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PS5, PS4, and PC. The game is one of the most popular MMORPGs on 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.
