Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Screenshots Soar Through Heavensward
Happy Birthday Yoshida-san
05.06.15 - 11:12 PM

To celebrate his birthday, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn producer and director Naoki Yoshida released a heartfelt message to the game's fans along with several screenshots from the upcoming Heavensward expansion. Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward will have many new features, but these screenshots focus on the expansive landscape that one might see on the backs of a noble steed like the flying fat chocobo.

Hi everyone. Producer and Director here!

Thank you very much for all your comments wishing me a happy birthday! To receive such well-wishings from you all is truly an honor as both a game developer and an MMORPG manager.

Even on my birthday I haven’t been at home eating cake; I’m currently being chased for the final checks for the master version of Heavensward!

As thanks for all of your comments helping me celebrate my birthday, I thought I might as well leak a screenshot….

All of us here at the development team will do our very best working on Heavensward for the release. Not long to go now!

I LOVE “YOU” GUYS! : P

The reference to "you" guys refers to a recent gaff on the forums where Yoshida accidentally wrote "I love guys," much to the amusement of the game's players.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward comes out on PC, Mac, PS3, PS4 on June 23rd, with early access beginning on June 19th. You can check out our updated gallery to see the rest of the screens.
