Yoshida provides update on Final Fantasy XI Mobile

Written by Brayden — 12 Nov 2017

Naoki Yoshida is the head of Square Enix Business Division 5, who are responsible for Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XI so Darryl also asked him about the long in development mobile version of Final Fantasy XI.

Darryl: Final Fantasy XI also sits within your Business Division and despite the main scenario finishing a few years ago, we’ve since seen the release of Grandmasters and there’s a mobile version of the game in development with Nexon. Are there any other plans to expand the world of Vana’Diel further and are you able to give an update on the Mobile version? Also, are there any plans to expand the world of Final Fantasy XIV in the same way?

Naoki Yoshida: To update you on Final Fantasy XI Mobile, because we’re in the same Business Division I know exactly where we are. At the moment we’re fine tuning the battle system, and when the time is right we will be able to make another big announcement, an official one.

As for Final Fantasy XIV, we don’t really have that type of content available on mobile because we would like to focus on the main application.
