Final Fantasy XIV spin-off Tactics Alexander announced as an April Fools joke

Written by Brayden — 31 Mar 2017

April Fools Day 2017 has begun in Japan and Square Enix has released a trailer for a Final Fantasy XIV spin-off called Tactics Alexander.

The trailer is made in the style of the Super Famicom/SNES game, Tactics Ogre and features characters from Final Fantasy XIV.

To be honest something like this doesn't seem too crazy. Yasumi Matsuno, the director and scenario writer for Tactics Ogre is a big fan of Final Fantasy XIV and is writing an upcoming raid for the game titled "Return to Ivalice". And Hiroshi Minagawa who was incharge of Tactics Ogre's art direction and later directed the remake, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together is Final Fantasy XIV's lead UI designer.
