A Fantasy Gamer's Throne: Exploring the Secretlab Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition

It’s equal parts luxury and kitsch. Launched by Secretlab in collaboration with Square Enix, the Secretlab Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition is a special edition gaming chair that harkens back to the 10th anniversary of its popular MMORPG franchise, Final Fantasy 14. The company has timed this release to coincide with the impending release of the Dawntrail expansion for Final Fantasy 14 in July this year. The chair’s design resembles the Ocular of the Crystal Tower, and includes functional magnetic patches for customisation. Unlike other gaming chairs, this one doesn’t just provide a perch for someone who wishes they were still fighting primals on Eorzea. The Secretlab Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition enables players to inject a little of their favourite in-game world right into their living room.

The Aesthetic Appeal of the Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition

The Secretlab Neo Hybrid Leatherette chair is a deep blue and features gold designs, representing the colours of the Crystal Tower. It sits in any gaming setup and represents the magic of Final Fantasy 14 and its grandeur. It not only offers the player comfort, but it also forms a monument that demonstrates their commitment to the game.

The Emblem of Customization: Magnetic Role Patches

Also unique to this edition, the magnetic patches speak to both Secretlab and Square Enix’s ingenuity, and to the three combat roles in the game: tank, healer and DPS, or damage per second. ‘These interactive patches allow players to customise their Secretlab Titan Evo chair in a way that is similar to customising their Final Fantasy 14 characters in-game,’ says Alaric Choo, one of Secretlab’s co-founders. It’s a touch that, like the game itself, allows players to make the virtual world tangible: to manifest their playstyle and their allegiance right where they sit.

Comfort Meets Fantasia: The Ergonomic Design

The Secretlab Titan Evo, which we reviewed in 2022, got four and a half stars out of five and was called ‘one of the best gaming chairs on the market’. The Final Fantasy 14 Edition inherits all the high build quality and plush comfort that the Secretlab Titan Evo is famous for, and has everything a player needs to be ready to take on the adventure of FFXIV. When the Final Fantasy 14 developers got their hands on an Evo chair, they raved about it, praising it for helping players survive the game’s most demanding content by giving them the only game chair worth buying.

The Cat's Out of the Bag: Exclusive Lumbar Pillows

If you’re a Final Fantasy 14 fan who doesn’t want to splurge on a whole new chair on top of your subscription, Secretlab offers two memory foam lumbar pillows: the Fat Cat Edition and the Alpha Edition. The Symbol Foam Lumbar Pillow Fat Cat Edition with its adorable graphic of Final Fantasy 14’s most reliable chubby cat minion will be a heart-melter, while the Symbol Foam Lumbar Pillow Alpha Edition features the cheery chocobo Alpha, making his first appearance in the Stormblood expansion. Buddy up with him while you play, if you’re not too busy kicking monster behinds.

Beyond the Realm of Fantasy: What This Means for Gamers

While one can’t help but see the announcement of the Secretlab Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition and the collection of lumbar pillows decorated with Mog, Moogle and Cactuar as a limited-time celebration of the anniversary, it is also representative of the growing trend of gaming accessories that have become vehicles of participatory fandom in themselves. From limited-edition figures to plushies, these products find a willing market in gamers who love the games and the community they are a part of so much that they want to bring a taste of Eorzea into their homes.

Embrace the Fantasy: The Verdict

From the 1:1 model of the Crystal Tower to the magnetised interchangeable patches and premium ergonomics, the Secretbattle Titan Evo Final Fantasy 14 Edition is a dream come true for fans. And with the themed lumbar pillows, Secretlab has created the perfect tribute to 10 years of adventures in Final Fantasy 14.

About the Cat

A shift from a Fantasy Final Fantasy world to our real-life cat tribe is as natural as it is pertinent. Just like our favourite gaming elements, cats fill our world with love, comfort and magic. The fact that a cat is adorning Secretlab gaming accessories brings personality and appeal to the products. The cat is not just a pet, it also symbolises a spirit of independence, inquisitiveness and resilience. In many ways, it is an extension of the spirit of gaming: being a bold explorer who braves uncharted worlds in confidence and style. Secretlab Memory Foam Lumbar Pillow Fat Cat Edition is an accessory that pays tribute to the magical allure of cats, and the loveable comfort they bring – just as Secretlab gaming chairs provide unparalleled comfort and unblemished ergonomic design.
