Horse Bird!

Really? seriously? Just when you think Square-Enix can't possibly screw up the Final Fantasy franchise anymore than they already have at various points in the past.... they apparently thought it was a good idea to rename the FF staple: Chocobo to "Horse Bird."

Shortly after they changed it in the JP version of FFXIV, it drew such an outrage that they reverted the change and issued an apology.

Part of me laughed at it a little, seeing just how out of touch their developers are with their base audience... and another part of me honestly believes that if they had made the change on the NA version of FFXIV first, they wouldn't give a rat's ass about what the gaijin think of their obviously well thought out change.
