Final Fantasy XIV Updates: Naoki Yoshida’s Playstation Interview, Fankit Update and Layton World Appears in Eorzea

September 7th, 2017 by Raptorchan


The official blog for Playstation has released a heartwarming interview with the Producer / Director of Final Fantasy XIV, Naoki Yoshida.

With FFXIV having just celebrated it’s Fourth Anniversary, Yoshida-san reflects on the past briefly and discusses his favorite moments, such as his proudest moment as a player and how much he enjoys the Fan Festivals. When Yoshida-san was asked to imagine an scenario where he was entirely new to the MMORPG scene, to offer some insight to new players just starting out, he had this to say:

“If I didn’t know anything, I think I would start by just enjoying the story. Even if I didn’t have any experience in playing MMORPGs, I would still be the same fan of the Final Fantasy series I am today. So, I think I would travel through the main story as I would be excited to see what awaits in the FF tale to come.”

He then goes on to say that he believes Final Fantasy XIV is unique due to its great graphics, sound and abundance of battle content combined that makes the game special, which is all held up by an incredible story that rivals a stand-alone RPG title.

You can read the full interview here.


For those familiar with the game Layton’s Mystery Journey, a game that allows players to travel to real life locations to find clues to solve puzzles, it appears that clues for the for the game have begun appearing in certain areas of Eorzea on Japanese servers. While it was a surprise to learn that a Professor Layton title has popped up in FFXIV, it leaves us to wonder if the development team for Final Fantasy XIV has any plans to have another crossover event with their friends at Level-5 Inc (this time with the Professor Layton series), or if this is simply just for fun.

Thanks to our FFNetwork Discord member CyanicKnight for making mention of this event!


On the Lodestone side of things, if you’re a fan of the Summer artwork for Final Fantasy XIV, never fear! The FanKit has been updated to now include high quality wallpapers (and twitter banner) of the lovely art piece. You can download them all here.
