Final Fantasy XIV's Bunny Suit Will be Available for Male Characters in Patch 4.3

Final Fantasy XIV's Bunny Suit Will be Available for Male Characters in Patch 4.3

Gender equality at last.

Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida was given "homework" at PAX East a couple years ago—make the infamous bunny suit wearable by male characters. It appears he's come through.

At the tail end of their deep dive into Final Fantasy XIV's writing, Square Enix revealed the update. As part of the announcement, they included a couple screenshots, and they're admittedly pretty hot.

"It's not going to happen immediately," main scenario writer Natsuko Ishikawa told the audience. "It's going to be implemented some time during the Patch 4.3 series."

Three cheers for gender equality.

Final Fantasy XIV most recent update brought with it the Eureka area, which features new rewards and lots of enemies to kill. While the new content was welcomed, it was criticized in some quarters for relying too heavily on grinding.

Such criticism has been comparatively rare since Final Fantasy XIV burst back on to the scene, though. In particular, the Stormblood expansion, which launched last year, was very well-received by fans and critics alike.

No word yet on the release date for Patch 4.3. It should be out by the time summer arrives.
