"What did you say that you've come as, again?"

To celebrate its release on the PlayStation 4 today, Square Enix has deployed a launch trailer for its massively multiplayer online game Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. In typical overblown JRPG fashion, the gameplay video showcases towering castles, beautiful vistas, tumultuous dragons, and a fair bit of button-bashing brawling, all to the tune of some inspirational, yet entirely twee, ceremonial drum and electric guitar-infused fantasy battle music.

Anyone already in possession of the PlayStation 3 release of A Realm Reborn can make the next-gen upgrade free of charge, so be sure to consult our quick and easy two-step guide. And if you're still not convinced that the game's for you, make sure that you check out our Final Fantasy XIV review.
