From today until the 13th September, personal messages to fans, detailing the journey and memories of those involved, will be posted daily on the dedicated FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn anniversary website – culminating in a special message from Producer / Director, Naoki Yoshida.
To mark the occasion, commemorative messages from President and CEO of SQUARE ENIX Group – Yosuke Matsuda, Yoichi Wada, and FINAL FANTASY Brand Manager; Shinji Hashimoto can already be viewed on the official anniversary website.
“Thanks to acclaim from players from around the world, we are able to be here today, announcing the first anniversary of A Realm Reborn” said Yosuke Matsuda. “This would not be possible without the generous support of our players, and I would like to offer you all my deepest gratitude”.
Yoichi Wada also thanked players around the world;
“Thank you for playing FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. For me, the most memorable part of this journey was the “End of an Era” trailer. I remember how deeply moved I was, seeing that we did in fact make FFXIV a true FINAL FANTASY title.”
The first three messages, courtesy of Yosuke Matsuda, Yoichi Wada and Shinji Hashimoto, are now available on the official FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn anniversary page.
With posts scheduled daily, fans should keep an eye on the official anniversary page over the next two weeks for more special messages; and for more details on all upcoming celebratory events and activities.
