Although yesterday is Easter (best wishes to all), we must not forget the date of this day, that April 1, 2018. And Square Enix took the opportunity to announce the arrival of a new mobile game, which surely everyone will want to download.
This is Final Fantasy XIV Online GO, a title that combines the MMORPG with the Pokemon GO features. Users can use Augmented Reality to find direct points and fishing points. In addition, to excel on other players, you can get bonuses in collecting items by shattering your smartphone or tablet against rocks and trees, or catch larger fish by immersing your device in rivers or lakes. Too bad that you will not find anything on digital stores. Yes, it’s clearly an April Fool!
If this April Fool is not enough, Final Fantasy XIV Online has been the subject of a retro-styled April Fools. The Magnai character, NPC present in the game, is the undisputed protagonist of Magnai Fantasy, a title that brings the character to live different adventures on old games that could be played on NES, SNES and PlayStation One. If you need gils while playing in FFXIV, you can buy gils on ffxiv4gil. You can get 2% discount with code if you buy Final Fantasy XIV Gil on FFXIV4GIL.
Rumor goes that the ChocoGo ridesharing app may not be real. While a new update for the Manderville Gold Saucer’s Chocobo Racing is true. In Patch 3.25, which went live last week, the Final Fantasy XIV team added new features to the minigame including: new racetrack items, chocobo abilities, and a new mode called: Chocobo Challenges.
In this mode, players will be racing to defeat a rival designated with a red nameplate. Complete each of these challenges to unlock a large pot of MGP (that’s Manderville Gold Saucer points). Square Enix has significantly uppped the amount of MGP earned from GATEs and major attractions, so if you’re saving up for a flying Adamantoise mount or a soon – to – be – flying (Patch 3.3) Fenrir mount – now’s a good time to start socking away.
You can watch us take a spin in the video below:
There have also been a plentitude of adjustments to existing courses including the position and frequency of obstacles as well as the reduced “strength” of rival riders. You’ll also gain more experience too, which will help you experiment with the myriad new racing abilities chocobos can learn and equip. For those seeking to breed and train the ultimate chocobo, the materials needed for feeding and coverings have had their costs reduced.
For all the details on what’s changed, you can hit up the official Patch 3.25 notes here.
Stamina Swapper: Interchanges your chocobo’s stamina with that of a forerunning chocobo. Swap is made only if the forerunning chocobo has more stamina than yours.
Spiderweb: Renders the chocobo running immediately behind you unable to use items.
Choco Drain: Generates a field which drains the stamina of nearby chocobos at a rate of 15 per second.
Paradigm Shift: Swaps current item with a different one.
Mimic: Repeats any ability or item used by a forerunning chocobo.
Super Sprint: Sprint without weather or terrain penalties until all stamina is spent.
Choco Reraise: Instantly restores 60 stamina when stamina meter reaches zero.

I’m currently playing on the chinese servers, and i’m looking to see if any other foreigners (westerners) play on here as well.
EDIT: Guess I should have made this clearer. I am a foreigner who currently lives in China and am playing on their servers. I was looking for other westerners who also live in China and are playing the game as well (on their servers)
