I love a weird gaming cross promotion. They typically come out of Japan but this collaboration between Square Enix and the Oceania division of Domino’s Pizza makes for a random regional mashup. To ncoincide with the recently released Stormblood expansion, gamers can get a free download of Final Fantasy XIV Complete Edition on PlayStation 4 or PC by buying the gut-busting “Pizza & Gaming Bundle” for $49.95. That includes the game and a combo of 3 pizzas, 1 garlic bread, and a 1.5L drink. Nothing says “hot friday night” like sharing three pizzas and watching the download bar slowly creep across the screen! Just kidding: download codes delivered within 24 hours.
But which three pizzas do you order? For the promotion Domino’s has renamed some tried-and-true topping combos to make alliterative allusions to the game. The Meatlovers pizza is now Moogle’s Meatlovers, the veggie is Curious Cactuar, the supreme is Stormblood Supreme, and the Hawaiian is Heavensward Hawaiian. There is one unique creation, the Chocobo Chow which implies that chocobo tastes like chicken. The toppings include chicken, pineapple, capsicum (peppers), mushrooms, onion and spring onion (scallions).
All told, that saves you about $10 over buying everything individually on top of getting the game. Any Final Fans in Australia or New Zealand up for the deal? Anybody else wish they could get the offer in their part of the world?
When asked for their thoughts, GameLuv’s Heart1lly said she’d “prefer stuff from the Eorzea cafe in Japan” and Katy added “it makes me want to have pizza.” Think it over and leave a comment, I’m with Katy and super hungry for generic pizza right now.
