Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Interview with Naoki Yoshida [RPG Site]

RPG Site chats once more to Naoki Yoshida, the man behind the impressively ambitious reboot of the world and gameplay systems of the originally ill-fated Final Fantasy XIV.

In the interview, Yoshida chats about what it feels like to be in the final sprint, the ongoing possibility of an Xbox version, PVP play and those interesting Final Fantasy XIII cross-overs that were just announced. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, PS4)

Ty for the article. Great stuff from the interview. Here's a few things I want to highlight.

"First of all, we are going to introduce one part of the PVP we're planning to make, Coliseum. This is going to be 4 vs. 4 or 8 vs. 8. With this next beta phase, 4, we're going to test that out - so you'll be able to find out what happens when different classes or jobs fight against each other within FF14.

This Coliseum will be introduced with patch 2.0, straight away after launch. Six months after launch, we're planning to also introduce another PVP called Frontline. This is more like a RvR - Realm versus Realm. This uses whole zones - it's a large-scale PVP."

"One thing that we're having a headache with at the moment is that players are enjoying the beta so much that they're not logging out of the game! [laughs] We'd love to distribute more beta keys, but we can't - because their data can't be wiped because they're still playing! The servers are at capacity at the moment!"

I've been playing the ps3 Beta every weekend. Love this game.

Those PvP things sound pretty interesting.

Thanks for posting your highlights. I'm Websensed from almost all game sites except this one. Much appreciated.
