For those of you who haven't been on any sort of video game news site today, SE has just announced their brand new MMORPG.

Remember that Rapture game they've been talking about for so long. That Rapture game that was going to be their big MMORPG departure from FFXI?

Yeah, it wasn't that.

No, their new MMORPG is called...


As in Final Fantasy MOTHERF&%@ING Fourteen!


We've already got one of the most popular (and definitely the best) MMORPG on the planet for PC and Xbox360.

Oh... And PS2.

I almost forgot.

Come next year, we'll also have an incredible new Final Fantasy MMORPG for the PS3 and possibly the PC.

Basically, this is all part of a master plan to have a Final Fantasy MMO running on every single device known to man. Give us a few years and you'll be playing FFXVII on your toaster.

And PS2.

If this isn't the absolutely biggest, most important news you've ever heard then THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH YOU!

A whole new Final Fantasy MMORPG!

A whole new world to explore!

Thousands of new people to play with!

Thousands of new people for me to ban!

It's good news for everyone.

Well... Not the banned people.

But cares about them?

The only way this could get ANY better is if they somehow worked in the new PS3 motion control (*coughwiimotecough*) that Sony just announced.

Or an automated blowjob machine.

If we could get working on that, that'd be super.

Either one of them.

You really think it will come next year? How long have we been waiting for XIII?

Confirmed, FFXIV will be on the PC as well.

AWESOME!!!! I was considering going back to ffxi too, now i'll just wait for a cooler ff mmo

why are the galka back... ? ; ;

At 6:52 PM, Blogger Leut said...

Yes. XIV ftw. I made up my mind that I am ready to hand over my endgame gear to friends instead of returning to the game.

It will be insteresting to see what they do with the battle system. Similar to XI? Hmm...we'll see.

If you look in the screenshots and the big painting, it looks like all the races are back in this one.

I played FFXI for 2 years after it was released in the US. Though I no longer play, out of every MMO I've played FFXI was the best. It had the most immersive community and was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had from a video game. I will definitely be on edge until the day this is released.

While this looks very amazing I'm a little sad. :/ Wont this mean they'll close down FFxi? Or at least most people will leave. It really sucks for people who are willing to stay in Vana'diel. But all that aside the game looks epic and Ill probably play it at some point. :D

At 8:11 PM, Blogger Carboc said...

well if its anything like ffxiii, it'll be out in five years...maybe six. By then a ps3 will be like a ps2. Does anyone find it funny they announce 14 even before 13 has been released?

At 8:23 PM, Blogger AnesthesiaCat said...

Haven't they already been working on this for years? I hope next year is a real release date.

Also... Is is just me or do the Galka in those screenshots have no tails?

At 8:34 PM, Blogger jack121 said...

I get the feeling that this won't really take off not many people have a PS3. and why xi is great why make a new one that we all have to buy and install I'm sorry to say I don't like this move by square enix

official trailer link
I am biased towards FFXI so I have no doubts that this game will be just as (if not more) awesome!

At 9:21 PM, Blogger Christina said...

In the future it will be FFXIQRW. Or FFFU, more than likely. They will download everything into our brains and an IV will drain us and they filter out plasma to pay our monthly.
Gilsellers of the future will /tell you with Ads like this: "Cheap third world country blood and plasma for cheap FFXIQRW gil goto Cheapgilzforuasweraepurgame.com"
There will be some dank warehouse with gilsellers dried up like newts giving blood for cheap gil sales.
The only question with this new SE MMO is, will there be bone crunching effects for those you feed n00bs to? And more imporantly...... can we watch?
The other vital question is, can we shave the galka?Just wondering....Galka would look like a really gross hairless cat. Like a mutant Mr. Bigglesworth.

WoW..this looks so sweet, I think ill have to buy a ps3 because my pC will explode even by just opening the disk tray to install this... But one thing that caught my eye: It says " You must join hands... once again". Is it talking about us as players coming together, or are they talking about the races coming together again?... Wow this E3 was awesome( I just saw Nintendo E3, enough to say it freaking rocked) I cant wait for all these games to come out!

At 1:00 AM, Blogger john said...

Dnd i haven't even gotten that far into FFXI yet.. All my progress in vain! :(((

.. Well, I'll just start anew.. :P

At 4:00 AM, Blogger Salt said...

This will be interesting.

Lets hope they learned from mistakes in FFXI.
Allow solo gameplay please, that was a major thing that turned me away from trying the game.
Yes, I know it's a social game, but sometimes I just don't feel like grouping and dealing with potential mouthbreathers, because I'm in a bad mood.
Just want to logon and advance my character a little.

As for those then went "Wat!" at the announcement when FFXIII isn't even out yet.
I kind of had the same responses until I realised FFXIV is a MMO.
You guys do realised that SE has more then one team right?

For FFXIII and FXIV to be release so close together is probably the fault of the FXIII team, they delayed the damn game so long that the team responsible for a bloody MMO caught up with them.
Good lord.

FFXIII must have be stuck in "developerment hell" and that is never a good sign.
*Cough*Diatakana*cough*Duke Nukem Forever*cough*

The buzz seems to be that it's going to have the same relationship to FFXI that FFTA2 had to FFTA. In other words, pretty much the same races, gameplay, and jobs, with some expansion on all three fronts, and much prettier graphics.

Not having played FFXI, and having no intention of playing FFXIV, I can't really comment on whether that's a good thing or not. 8-)

At 7:03 AM, Blogger tyranastrasz said...

What really bugs me is that it's another numbered entry.

Spinoffs shouldn't be considered part of the numbered series, in my opinion. An MMO is as different a beast from a regular RPG as a tactics game is. Final Fantasy XI annoyed me enough because of this. If you're going to number this, maybe the next Crystal Chronicles game should be FFXV and then the next Tactics can be FFXVI.

Yes, I'm a nitpicky bastard.

"Give us a few years and you'll be playing FFXVII on your toaster."

I definitively need to buy a toaster in order to play it in the kitchen while cooking!

This... is... AWESOME!

I played FFXI for a solid 4 years, then came back to it for several months later. Even though I've lost interest for it, the experiences I've had with it make sure that I will play this new one.

At 12:27 PM, Blogger Brian said...

I think it's awesome news. I wanted to go back to FFXI, but I lost my first character and hated starting over. And the fact I got used to how pretty LoTRO looks.

I really wanted to play an FF MMO again so I was waiting for this.

As for the release date, we'll see. Hopefully it'll stay in 2010.

As for people saying it will flop because it's on PS3. I dunno. SOME people might buy a PS3, just for it and majority of people (that I know) play MMO's on their PC.

"Spinoffs shouldn't be considered part of the numbered series, in my opinion."

Ya wanna get down to it, the only one that should be numbered, then, is the first one (thus rendering the number useless).

Every other FF is a 'spin off', because they are not sequels and the vast majority have NOTHING to do with the rest.

At 1:17 PM, Blogger tyranastrasz said...

You know what I mean. Tactics, Crystal Chronicles, and the other non-numbered FF games are all major departures from the gameplay of the numbered series. That's what I meant when I said spinoffs.

At 4:13 PM, Blogger Badfish54 said...

I have been on FFXI ever since the NA PS2 release and been loving it. I can't wait for FFXIV to come out. Going to be amazing.

As for the whole "why make this if FFXIII is not out yet". FFXIII was going to be released however was delayed cause they had to get it ready for that bumbling idiot of a machine(XBOX360)

At 4:13 PM, Blogger David said...

Will be epic. And hope to see you in game. At first before knowing it was released for PC too i was a bit worried but its looking good. The teaser makes it interesting.

At 7:51 AM, Blogger Master said...

I'm excited to hear this and somewhat nervous.

I mean as others have said this can only mean the death of FFXI or the failure of FFXIV. Unless they somehow combine the two.

Also I have heard rumors that is surrounding the same types of characters and land, etc. I was hoping a for a new land to travel in and new empires or kingdoms. Not same old elves, humes, cats, and whatever those huge ape looking things are.

Also I like what salt said. Anything to make it more solo friendly. If I have to eat a face full of dirt I would rather it be of my own doing than someone who decided to go make a sandwich without telling anyone.

At 8:45 AM, Blogger Redlac said...

Of course, let us not forget what FFXIV also means for us-

The Continued Adventures of [GM] Dave!

But there may be no Jormy... I guess he could feed the idiots to that thing in the trailer...

Expect to see me running around Eorzea. Why isn't it 2010 yet!??

At 10:37 AM, Blogger Saifer said...

Im so excited I cant wait for 2010, this game looks so awesome and finally no more ps2 limitations, im pretty sure this game will be more epic than FF ever was.. I cant wait to be a nub again in the starting area... I just hope we dont see the same mobs we saw on FF... I just want SE to announce it on Xbox b4 it comes out because I buying a new console for just 1 game hurts..;_;

At 10:52 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Soooooooooooo excited!!! There's no words.
I know it usually takes an eternity for SE to release their games but in this case my gut feeling tells me they've been waiting until they were sure they could deliver on a timely manner before giving a release date, even if it's just a year...
Hope I'm right :S

What the... where is the galka's tail?! The only reason I play that race is for the tail!


Yay! I don't have to play galka anymore!

Just in case there is some 1 who havent seen this yet, http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/story.html?story=18309

BTW, FFXIV official site:

If they have a Galka-esque race, they better be damn sure to have a tarutaru-esque race. I must *MUST* have a short little cute character to make walk around and rip out entrails.

"Tactics, Crystal Chronicles, and the other non-numbered FF games are all major departures from the gameplay of the numbered series. That's what I meant when I said spinoffs."

What about FFII? No experince points at all. What about FFIV? The use of the Active Time Battle was a major depature from the Turn Based Battles of the first three games. Or FFX? No more world map or controllable airships. FFXII? Completly different in the gameplay in every aspect of the games that preceded it. FFXIII? Also, will be completely different that others. You see, Final Fantasy is at heart an ever evolving game play experience. No matter what, every game has several mechancis that every other game does not. So it's online. Who cares? It's just another way of playing a new type of Final Fantasy.
