It's not unheard of for people to meet their romantic partners through online games, which has resulted in real-life weddings and children being sired due to titles like League of Legends and World of Warcraft.
Japanese fans of Final Fantasy XIV will soon be able to recreate the wedding ceremony from the game in real life, as Square Enix has partnered with the Duexzero wedding venue in order to offer ceremonies based on the Eternal Bond event from the game (via Japan Today.)
Those fans who want to recreate their fictional wedding in real-life will be able to organize an Eternal Bond ceremony, which involves clothes based on the Garments of Devotion from the game, as well as a selection of special Final Fantasy-themed food items on the menu.
It's possible that menu items from the Eorzea Cafe in Akihabara will make an appearance, so long as the guests don't mind devouring the face of chocobo as part of their meal.
It's possible for amorous Final Fantasy XIV players to marry their characters together in an event called the Ceremony of Eternal Bonding, which requires the players to be of a certain level and complete specific quests in order for them to get hitched in the land of Eorzea.
The Ceremony of Eternal Bonding has been lauded by critics and fans for allowing both interracial and same-sex marriages, which means that anyone can get married in the land of Eorzea.
Like a real-life wedding, the Ceremony of Eternal Bonding can also cost you cash if you want a fancier option, with the Gold Plan charging the players $10 each and the Platinum Plan charging the players $20 each.
The Platinum Plan gives the married couple a unique Ceremony Chocobo mount, which looks so cool that some platonic friends might be willing to get hitched just for the bird.
Theme weddings based on geek properties is nothing new, as Star Trek fans have been speaking their vows in Klingon for decades now, but it's still an awesome idea for Square Enix to allow fans to recreate their in-game weddings in the flesh.
New details about the Final Fantasy XIV-themed weddings will be made available on Valentine's Day, though the service isn't likely to leave Japan.
