After it was released today, fans across the world were enthused by the anime-like visuals and engaging storytelling. The video is part of a Korean event that players can participate in, and now fans throughout the world are enthused by them.
The video is entirely in Korean, but others from other countries have embraced it and commented on how cool the video is for its anime style. This contrasts to a video series players were given in the United States and the United Kingdom, which featured short stories around a campfire using actors, and was a series of very short, under-one-minute videos that were reacted negatively.
The characters are shown doing a wide spectrum of activities, including crafting, gathering, celebrating, and, of course, fighting. The video was created as an introduction for the game, and now other players from different countries are urging their countries to follow suit.
Following the teaser trailer, followers have been incredibly positive on social media. Fans have long wanted a series based on Final Fantasy XIV—now they want it to be an anime.
Players are hoping that another video will be shot around Gridania, since the event appears to have multiple parts to it.
