Square Enix has released a bonus episode in “The Creation of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers” developer diary series. The episode explores the creation of the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse alliance raid series. The Developer Diary video explores how the crossover with the NieR series came to be, what inspired the design decisions in the first part of the raid, and hints at what’s to come in the future. The episode features interviews with Naoki Yoshia (Producer and Director, Final Fantasy XIV Online), Yosuke Saito (Producer, NieR Series), and Yoko Taro (Director, NieR Series).
The rest of the six-episode series provides an in-depth look at various parts of the game’s development, including several key developers sharing behind-the-scenes insight on how they create the MMORPG. The complete series is available to watch on YouTube. It was revealed last week that the second chapter of YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse will be titled “The Puppet’s Bunker” and will launch as part of the next major update, Patch 5.3: Reflections in Crystal.
Players eager for more Final Fantasy XIV adventures can look forward to the Fan Festivals coming to North America, Japan, and Europe in 2020 and 2021. A video preview can be viewed on YouTube.
