The Final Fantasy XIV theatrical movie “Dad of Light” (also known in English as “Brave Father Online – Our Story of Final Fantasy XIV”) has recently premiered on Japanese silver screens, and production company Gaga released a new trailer.
The video, featuring several scenes from the movie, is all about the theme song “Colors” written by GLAY’s Teru and performed by the popular Japanese pop and rock band.
It’s actually fairly emotional, especially if you have watched the (awesome) Netflix series the movie is based on.
If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s based on a true story of a son giving his father a copy of the game in order to play together with him (without actually revealing his identity) and manage to connect at a level that seems impossible to achieve in real life.
Considering how relationships within Japanese families often are, this is far from an unrealistic premise.
You can watch it below.
This is only one prong of the intense promotion Square Enix has launched for the game’s new expansion, Shadowbringers. Considering the west-facing trailer with Tom Holland and Hannibal Buress, the anime commercials, and the giant billboards in Times Square, it’s obvious that Square Enix is pulling all the stops here.
