E3 2019 Interview: Naoki Yoshida on Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers
The Producer/Director dishes on the new expansion, PSO2, that healer thing, and more!
07.08.19 - 9:33 PM

Last year at E3, we had the pleasure of interviewing Masayoshi Soken, Sound Director and Composer on Final Fantasy XIV. This year, we got to talk to one of the other key people behind the successful MMORPG, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida (as if those titles weren't enough, he is also a member of the Square Enix Board of Directors and Vice President of Creative Business Unit III). This isn't the first time we've talked to the leader of the team that turned the game around six years ago, but a lot has changed since our 2016 chat, and with Shadowbringers now available for everyone, it was the perfect time to open a new dialogue.

Check out the full interview here!

Note that there will be minor spoilers ahead, less so for Shadowbringers itself, but for some events in the post-Heavensward storyline.
