Fast food franchise and game tie-ins aren’t especially new, but this Final Fantasy XIV promo takes the cake. Or massive buckets of chicken in this instance.
China’s KFC outlet is holding a promo that offers Final Fantasy XIV a sweet Fat Black Chocobo mount code for use in-game. Here’s the catch:
- You have to buy a KFC family deal for four. That’s 1 Double Chicken Burger, 1 Vegan Mushroom Burger, 1 5-piece Chicken Nuggets, 2 Original Recipe Chicken, 1 2-piece New Orland Chicken Wings, 1 Old Beijing Spicy Duck Roll, 2 large Pepsis, and 2 large Peach Oolong Tea (translated via Reddit’s Cozywolf).
- You can’t dabao this; you have to eat the whole thing at the venue. Once you finish it, the KFC staff will hand you the code.
- To recap, one family deal which contains that gargantuous amount of food will net you one code. If you want your pals to have the same matching bird mount in-game, you’ll have to attempt a real-life raid with really, REALLY hungry friends.
Here’s a sneak peek at what it really looks like:
And the crazy part? Some FF14 players have already succeeded. Solo. Come check out the results, complete with appropriate captions via that same Reddit thread.
