New pics from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

58 second read

In case you didn’t know, Final Fantasy XIV was a flop – even game director Naoki Yoshida admitted as much.  So, what better solution than to blast the world with meteors and start over?

As Yoshida said

“We took our fanbase for granted,” he says. “We lacked the knowledge of the global standard for MMOs, the knowledge of other titles. We didn’t have the heart, the spirit or the passion to challenge the market.”

But don’t take my criticism of the game – Yoshida more than picks it apart:

So, after a complete reboot, the new Final Fantasy XIV is looking pretty good.  It is currently going through beta testing, and will be released later this year.  It looks pretty – I’m just not sure that I could ever get behind a Final Fantasy MMO.  I’m a HUGE Final Fantasy fan, but I guess I’m a bit of a purist; I want to log hours and hours on quests and grinding and all the typical JRPG madness… by myself!

    Couldn’t agree more. Final fantasy is a personal, single person experience.

    The only issue I’ve ever had with MMO’s are the environments, 10 mils of absolute nothingness and one tree or 5 buildings in one place. Its boring, nothing attracts alot attention, the only game so far that made an effort with environments to some extent was TERA and Jade Dynasty

    I’m having withdrawl symptoms because I haven’t played this game since October last year, I think they might release this on PS3 and PS4 and PC. No word on Xbox 720…

    Sqeenix really need to change. The Final Fantasy trio who fucked off to Microsoft to make Blue Dragon and LO knew it had gone to shit. A pitty it took an entire generation to fluff it all up and turn the franchise into a chick flick.
