What Is Going Wrong With Final Fantasy XIV? Meme Fest And More
That the Final Fantasy XIV team has a taste for memes is something that is not only not new, but also surprises no one. One of the top games FF XIV the jokes of his community and-often-participating in them, today we have another very clear example of this. The polygonal grapes meme that marked the beginning of Endwalker has now become the strangest merchandising.
Final Fantasy XIV’s latest expansion, Endwalker, arrived in December 2021 and brought with it a lot of excitement for fans of the MMO who couldn’t help but inspect every nook and cranny. The most observant didn’t take long to find what has become one of the biggest memes in the game: comically polygonal bunches of grapes that looked like they were taken from a Nintendo 64 game. While it is true that Square Enix was quick to patch them up, they have become one of Endwalker’s most iconic moments, and now the Japanese company has decided to immortalize them.
On the occasion of this year’s Final Fantasy Festival —or FanFest—, the creators of the MMO have today presented the gifts that the lucky attendees of this limited event will take home. With a backpack, a pen, a keyring and a magnet, the jewel in the crown has undoubtedly been the curious bunch of grapes.
“Relieve any stress left over from farm parties with these truly remarkable squashable Endwalker Grapes. If you ever feel like you’re lacking resolve, grab your grapes and remember how things were,” reads the humorous item description. Unfortunately, as these rewards are exclusive to FanFest, it is highly unlikely that Square Enix will release them for us to get a hold of outside of the event.
