Final Fantasy XIV Updates: Shanghai FanFestival and Dad of Light Worldwide Release Date Announced

August 19th, 2017 by Raptorchan

This weekend, Final Fantasy XIV had their fourth FanFestival in Shangai, China. According to a post on the Final Fantasy XIV subreddit, most of the information revealed at the show was not entirely new, as China is a little bit behind on schedule, however there were some new information that had been thankfully translated into English.

These notes were copied from this post in the Shangai FanFestival thread on the FFXIV Subreddit:

  • There are no current plans for having open world pvp on normal servers. Even if they were to implement it, it would be a specific server dedicated to open world pvp.
  • Patch 4.1 will introduce a large scaled pvp involving “Mechas”, where 2 forces of players will fight against each other.
  • They have never even thought about having an end raid boss for 72 man content and it’s not realistic when you think about waiting for all the other players to que.
  • The alliance raid roullette will be added in 4.1 as promised.
  • They have no plans on adding a combat rating/evaluation system. The victory belongs to everyone who was there to clear the content. If you think someone is slacking, you have the option to kick them.
  • The development of the male bunny outfit has currently stopped, but it’s almost time they start working on it again. They had a look at a male Hyur in the bunny outfit and their bottom looked sexy.
  • They hear lots of demands on having a beast/monster tamer type of job, but it’s difficult when they consider FFXIV’s battle system. However, they do think that having some sort of system where you can collect monsters is interesting, so they will take it back to the devs to discuss it.

Questions regarding Soken:

  • The soundtrack/BGM for FFXIV has its own policy and they try to stick to the lore when they create music for the game.
  • Soken’s favorite genre is Rock and Bossa Nova.
  • Soken is not the type of composer who sticks to his desk to create new music. Recently there have been cases where Soken comes up with a new melody during meetings.
  • Soken loves Female Au ras.
  • The dev team’s male to female ratio is 7:3. The sound team used to be packed with men, but recently they got some new female members.

Questions regarding Yoshi-p:

  • Yoshi-p spends around 10 to 12 hours in the office and he treats his work as a part of his hobby.
  • Yoshi-p has spent the past 5 weeks raiding, but he obtained no loot during that time.
  • Yoshi-p chooses his own hair style and outfit. He uses hard wax. Snow boarding is about the only hobby outside of gaming, that Yoshi-p can instantly come up with. He prefers women who are like Female Au ra.
  • He talked about how there were 13 retakes for “that scene” for Haurchefant and he cried after every single one of them.

Thank you to all who may have been involved in translating the Q&A session into English!

A new outfit was revealed for the Chinese player community as well, with screenshots taken by users on the official Final Fantasy XIV forums.

If this goes in the direction as previous region-exclusive outfits have, this may end up on the Mogstation in later months world-wide for users to purchase. Fingers crossed!

And finally, it was announced today on the official Twitter that the Final Fantasy XIV Netflix Series “Dad of Light” will be available world-wide in 21 different languages on September 1st 2017!

Dad of Light is a live action series based off a true, heartwarming story about a son and father who rekindle their bond by playing Final Fantasy XIV together. According to Yoshida-san in a previous liveletter, the series was doing very well in Japan.
