In a recent Developer Blog Post

were given sneak peeks of the latest content 

to be implemented in A Realm Reborn.


If you're not familiar with Chocobo Barding 

Chocobo barding was released with the "Grand Company"

updates, allowing your chocobo to be adorned in battle gear,

depending on how many "seals" you have.

*Seals: When completing Grand Company Quests you obtain "seals"

A form of currency that allows the player to buy gear, weapons and barding

only available in the Grand Companies.

Hello again!

Fernehalwes here. For this installment of the Developers’ Blog, we decided to bring you an in-game screenshot of some chocobo barding that Yoshi-P hinted at back during a previous Producer Letter Live. You may recall this preliminary artwork:


Well, the character design team has been busy all month transforming those 2D drawings into actual 3D models. While my trusty partner ‘M’ lured a lonely designer from his workstation with a wink and some tasty chocolate, I snuck in from behind and snapped this revealing pic:


At this stage in development, the armor still appears to be lacking textures, but if I’m not mistaken, those horns have an uncanny resemblance to the ones found on a certain legendary beast spotted atop a snow-capped peak in a recent FINAL FANTASY XIV trailer. Now what was his name again? Bahoo... Bahi... Behemmmm...my! Would you look at the time!

I’ll see you all again soon!
