Through its newsletter, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy XIV GO, a mobile game that clearly climbs the trend of augmented reality titles like Pokemon GO and Jurassic World: Alive. With this experience, Square Enix is looking for Final Fantasy XIV players to take to the streets to transform their world into a place to obtain resources such as minerals, plants and fish. If for some reason this concept caught your attention, we have some bad news: it is a joke by April Fools’ Day.
According to the joke, Final Fantasy XIV GO wants the MMORPG’s immersion to reach the next level. Thus, it will break the barriers that cause the only way to collect resources is on the PC or a console by allowing users to go out to the streets to look for them. Those who download the application will receive a notification on their cell phone that will indicate where they can go to get materials to use in Final Fantasy XIV.
In addition, the company will team up with a Japanese design company to launch a “Harvesting Stick” with which players can increase their success rate by getting resources in Final Fantasy XIV GO. It will also allow them to use their cell phone as the hook of a fishing rod or as an ax so that they have the most realistic experience possible.

If you are a fan of April Fools’ jokes, we remind you that this is not the first one we find today and it is very likely that it will not be the last one either. Among those that most appeal to us are a game Battle Royale by Halo and an animated series by PAYDAY. You can see more similar jokes in this link.
