During Sydney's Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras over this past weekend, Square Enix teamed up with Sydney Gaymers to bring a Final Fantasy XIV-themed float to the parade. FFXIV's Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida wrote, "To see this makes me very happy indeed, both as the person in charge of FFXIV and also as just another player of the game. FFXIV is another world that continues to grow and expand online. I would like to continue developing this world, hand in hand with communities" everywhere.
The collaboration to create the float was first announced in February and features "inflatables of a Moogle, Cactuar and Cherry Bomb" alongside over eighty marchers from both the FFXIV and Gaymers communities.
