Final Fantasy XIV producer Naoki Yoshida has big plans for the MMORPG. After announcing the massive overhaul that’s currently in the works for the troubled MMO, Yoshida also wants to tap into the Final Fantasy franchise history by implementing locations found in previous titles.
“When we announced FINAL FANTASY XIV version 2.0, you may have noticed the crystal tower, which some people might recognise from a previous FINAL FANTASY game. I think the FINAL FANTASY franchise has had a very great history. Because FINAL FANTASY XIV is an MMO, it’s a great opportunity for players to feel and experience the FINAL FANTASY universe 365 days a year. I really want to make the most out of the franchise’s history.”
“ Not many other games have this incredible history, so I’d like to put as much of that as possible in this game. Not only by using ideas, objects and locations from older FINAL FANTASY games, but also by adding new things to the universe. I have a lot of plans, so please look forward to finding out what I have in mind. “
The Crystal Tower Yoshida mentioned was first seen in Final Fantasy III but has also appeared in the PSP title, Dissidia Final Fantasy.
