And the hand grips on it are ridiculous in appearance. I know what you must be thinking too, that it bears a striking resemblance to nearly any Playstation controller you can think of. Well surprisingly enough this is the official controller for the upcoming online MMO Final Fantasy XIV. Sunflex, in partnership with Square Enix, has set this controller for a release day on the same day the game comes out, which is September 30th.
The buttons are numbered which most likely means that they can be mapped to various in game skills to allow an easier playing experience, but they are also very unappealing. Without the Final Fantasy XIV name one may think that this was just a rip off controller by a third party developer. However as it is official from Square Enix it’ll be interesting to see if the controller makes any significant improvement to MMO players experience within the game.
