During yet another meeting dedicated to MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV, Naoki “Yoshi-P” Yoshida took stock sure Final Fantasy 16 who shone by his absence at theE3 2021 : “We already have all the scripts set in stone, and the voice recording for the English version is in its final stages. Development is going well. It’s pretty hard to make sure the quality is amazing. We want the next ad to be something everyone looks at and say ‘I’m going to buy this game!’. That’s why we put a lot of effort into making sure the quality is great (…) I want to show something at TGS, but I’m not sure we’ll meet the deadline to do this. I don’t like tossing pieces here and there to make people wait with little updates so I want to show it off when it’s ready.”
