Bards can actually play instruments now in Final Fantasy XIV

In Patch 4.15

Final Fantasy XIV's patch 4.15 just dropped, and a lot of the bigger additions like the new mech-based PVP mode are being overshadowed by "performance actions," which allow Bards to play music for the first time. The whole thing is surprisingly in-depth, as in, you'll have to actually learn how to play these songs with specific notes, with each hotbar action rigged up like a real keyboard.

Square Enix is warning people to not play anything other than Final Fantasy songs, as they don't want Nintendo complaining about folks putting up videos of Mario World 1-1 for example -- but you know it's going to happen in record time. The developers noted that if it gets out of hand they could remove the feature altogether, but hopefully it won't come to that given how fun it is.
