Yoshida Hopes Final Fantasy XIV Can Emulate Final Fantasy VII

Yoshida Hopes Final Fantasy XIV Can Emulate Final Fantasy VII

Written by Darryl — 11 Jan 2011

Final Fantasy XIV has had all kinds of problems since its launch, which recently lead to a huge upheaval of the game's main staff. The biggest change of which was replacing the game's director, Hiromichi Tanaka, with Naoki Yoshida.

Yoshida has already expressed his interest in revitalising the game, and his recent quotes in an interview with 4gamer show just how much he wants to achieve.

The topic of Final Fantasy VII came up, and he said he wants to attempt to allow Final Fantasy XIV to have the same memorable and lasting impact.

Currently it's probably having that effect already, just not for the right reasons.
