A chat with Yoshi-P about FFXIV: A Realm Reborn

Player Attack: You’ve probably already heard that Final Fantasy XIV was a massive flop when it first launched. What’s interesting about this is that Square Enix remade the MMO and re-released it as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and even more interesting is that this "new game" has been a huge success, turning around the publisher's financial forecasts, and giving the company a chance to recoup some of those losses.

One of the main people that this can be attributed to is Naoki Yoshida (AKA: Yoshi-P), the Producer and Director of the game. Yoshida-san has a great love of MMOs in general, with a long and fruitful relationship with many MMOs in the past, including Ultima Online and Dark Age of Camelot. When he came to Sydney I couldn’t resist the chance to sit down and have a chat with him about the direction of A Realm Reborn (that is, after I gave him a cupcake for his 41st birthday). (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Naoki Yoshida, PC, PS3, PS4)
