New Final Fantasy XIV patch adds Chocobos, airships

Final Fantasy XIV is getting a bit more Final Fantasy-y with its latest patch. Square Enix has announced that the upcoming patch 1.19 will add mounts to the MMO. Said mounts will come in the form of airships and – finally – Chocobos.

The publisher stated (via StrategyInformer): “The Chocobo whistle item will be introduced, allowing adventurers to call forth their personal mounts while out in the field. These chocobos will boast a speed advantage over their rental counterparts, and all adventurers are wholeheartedly encouraged to aspire to a bird that they can call their own.”

Chocobo upgrading will be included in later patches. Does anyone else remember when this one was meant to come to PS3? Those were the days…
