Square Enix’s three MMORPGs- Final Fantasy XI, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Dragon Quest X- all of them successful in their own right, will be getting a massive crossover event, reports Siliconera.
A sage from Dragon Quest X will take a great ark and visit the world of Final Fantasy XI, looking for a lost slime. This will initiate a Monstrosity event, where players can play as a Blue Slime. Players will be able to get special Slime gear.
Spriggan, a monster from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, will also show up in Final Fantasy XI- apparently, moogles can talk to spriggans. Like with the Blue Slime, players will be able to play as a spriggan and get special equipment.
Over in Final Fantasy XIV, Shantotto, the powerful black mage from Final Fantasy XI, will show up in Eorzea; players will be able to join her in a FATE, where if you defeat her, you will be able to recruit her as a minion. Similarly, a golem from Dragon Quest X will show up as a FATE in Final Fantasy XIV, and if you defeat it, it can join you as a minion.
Shantotto will also be showing up in Dragon Quest X, where she puts you on a quest to recover lost items. If you do that, you win a Chocobo hat. Similarly, A moogle from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will give Dragon Quest X players a quest too. Complete this and players get a Cactaur Mask.
The crossover events start December 11, when content from A Realm Reborn and Dragon Quest X will show up in Final Fantasy XI; Dragon Quest X will have the Final Fantasy XI crossover between January and February 2014. The Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy XIV crossover will take place later, between February and March. Finally, the two crossovers for Final Fantasy XIV will take place in the end of January to early February 2014.
