A realm revitalised
When it comes to Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn, improvement has been pivotal ever since its initial release way back in 2010. Due to a poor fan response, Square Enix decided to recruit Naoki Yoshida into the director’s role in a last ditch attempt to salvage the game, but rather than issue a series of patches and...
Juggernaut MMO Final Fantasy XIV's upcoming Dawntrail expansion introduces the Pictomancer Job class, inspired by the artistic magic of Relm Arrowny of Final Fantasy VI fame. The Pictomancer is a ranged DPS class that uses a magical paintbrush and pallet to bring their artistic creations to bear on the battlefield, with colourful and...
Final Fantasy's "even better"
Naoki Yoshida — commonly known by his nickname Yoshi-P — has been a key figure in getting Final Fantasy as a brand back on track over the last decade or so. He heads the team that rebuilt Final Fantasy 14 and eventually turned it into the juggernaut that it is today, and he's the producer on the very well received...
And a boss battle against Ifrit
In the ultimate Naoki Yoshida mash-up event, MMO Final Fantasy 14 is getting crossover content from Final Fantasy 16. Announced during the 2023 London Fan Festival, a trailer confirms there’ll be a boss battle against Ifrit, as well as a new Torgal mount and minion. Presumably there’ll also be fresh gear to...
A decade in the telling
Final Fantasy XIV is a behemoth of a game at this point, as players who have stuck with it from launch can well attest. Now, more than a decade later, with four expansions under its belt (not to mention playable on three generations of PlayStation consoles), the end of the story that started back in 2013 is finally in sight...
Finally, a challenge
If you thought Square Enix's mega-MMO Final Fantasy XIV could be improved by Frankensteining the recently released Pixel Remasters into the Manderville Gold Saucer or something, you aren't alone. Naoki Yoshida, the producer of the popular game, wants the same thing. If you have the technical skills to make it happen, then...
Relinquish your life
Square Enix’s gigantic MMO smash hit Final Fantasy 14 will grow in 2024 with the release of its next major expansion Dawntrail, but for those eager to see what all the fuss is about, you may be excited to learn that the title’s gigantic free trial will grow yet again with the release of its 6.5 update, which is expected...
Available until 1st June
Final Fantasy XIV players looking to save some Gil will want to take advantage of a new PS Plus bonus that went live on the PS Store earlier today. Available until 1st June 2023, active members can claim a free Aetheryte, which acts as a fast travel point for you in the game world. You will eventually need to renew it, but...
The story continues
The neverending forward march of Final Fantasy XIV continues (even if director Yoshi-P is currently obsessed with Zelda), with a trailer being released for the next chapter in the long-running MMO. The next patch, 6.4 - The Dark Throne, will set the stage for the next (as-yet-unannounced) major expansion and goes live next week,...
Do not disturb
As we alluded to in our other article on the subject, the industry has been put on pause for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of Kingdom. And not even Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida could put down his Nintendo Switch for a recent test stream, featuring the game’s v6.4 update. Any guesses for what he’s playing? Clearl
You're already dead
Final Fantasy 14 is one of the biggest games on the planet, but Square Enix isn’t satisfied. The juggernaut publisher is constantly trying to tempt new players to its titan MMO, and a new offer eligible through 8th May, 2023 is sure to convert a few remaining holdouts to the addictive and ever-expanding world of Eorzea...
