I am an native english speaker living in japan. While able to converse in japanese, i would really like to play on a US or EU version.

Is this possible? Am i able to type in japanese with US version of ffxiv?

It is my understanding that all languages are included in all versions. If I remember correctly, it is just a switch of an option in the ffxivconfig.exe. You will need to have the same version as your SE account is set to. So, *** version for *** region account. You may have trouble paying for the game with a Credit Card from a different country, but you should be able to buy a GameCard or use PayPal to buy Crysta instead.

Can anyone confirm what I've said?

you could buy the japanese version of the game, the installation is in english
and afterwards you can choose to run the game in english (also you have the ability now to type in japanese)

the only obstacle is that you have to create a japanese square enix account because the game is region specific.

last thing,
for monthly payment for the game, you will have to either use your credit card (pain in the *** with jp region) or you will have to purchase crysta.
for the second option, you can purchase crysta by using webmoney ( which you can buy as prepaid credit from any connivence store (like lawson or 7-eleven)

hope that helps

I'm having a similar problem, I'm going to be moving to the UK for a few years, but know I will be coming back. I already have the US version on preorder, I'm just scared it might not work there. If it doesn't I probably won't play since I'm not going to be in the UK forever.

This sounds like a question that SE would be more than happy to answer if you e-mailed them. It isn't likely that anyone else would know with 100% accuracy.
