So I've seen this question floating around here and there, but I don't think it has been answered definitively so please allow me to ask again. I am currently studying abroad in Japan, but my SE account is set to North America because that is my country of residence. I don't want to purchase a NA version of FFXIV because I don't want to pay extra money to have it shipped from the US, so I wanted to purchase a Japanese FFXIV. Of course, I thought about doing all this before SE announced the region-specific SE accounts. So my question is, If I purchase a Japanese FFXIV, will I be able to register it to my NA SE account?

Pretty sure they announced it was in fact region specific. NA account to NA version only. Someone else can confirm but this is what i remember.

I actually just sent them an e-mail about this yesterday, no reply yet. I'm in NA now and have a NA account but I'm about to move to England for 2-3 years, then I'm moving back to NA.

I heard that the Japanese FFXIV is a multi-lingual installation disk, so how would my account be able to distinguish the difference between a Japanese and NA FFXIV? Unless the key's RNG is region-specific, then that would be a total killjoy
