Today Square Enix and Puma jointly announced that their Final Fantasy XIV collaboration recently revealed for Japan will extend worldwide.
According to the announcement, the collaboration will be available to select market worldwide including North America, where it will debut on March 25.
The online store is already available, and it doesn't just feature sneakers, but also other apparel items like slides, bucket hats, baseball and dad caps, hoodies, shorts, T-shirts, and sweatpants.
The prices are $120 for sneakers, $40 for the slides, $45 for the bucket hat, $25 for the caps, between $80 and $95 for the hoodies, $60 for the shorts, between $30 and $40 for the shirts, and $70 for the sweatpants.

Below you can watch a teaser trailer and read an official blurb from Puma.
"In collaboration with the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV Online, we’ve created a collection celebrating its 10th anniversary that embodies the beloved game’s theme of duality between light and dark. This juxtaposition is highlighted in the contrasting color palette, while graphics and icons from the visually immersive game combine with iconic Puma DNA for an elevated aesthetic. Designed by Puma for Final Fantasy XIV —footwear, apparel, and accessories capture the creative culture that surrounds FFXIV and its artistic glamour community."
Final Fantasy XIV is 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 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. Just a few days ago, the new edition of the annual Little Ladies' Day seasonal event has been launched. The game just received its update 6.35 with plenty of new content for players to enjoy.
