Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, the upcoming re-launched version of the 2010 Final Fantasy MMO, will let players battle against an in-game version of Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada, producer and director Naoki Yoshida revealed in a community Q&A.
According to Yoshida, the team plans to create a system where players can battle against the development team, including an event featuring Yoichi Wada.
"There are multiple people from the development team who put a lot of thought into the PvP system and we currently do have plans to implement a system where players will be able to fight against the development team," he wrote. "As an additional note, we have plans for players to be able to fight Wada for an event!"
The re-launched version, which intends to fix many of the issues that were apparent in the game's highly criticized released, will offer a new graphics engine, server system and user interface among other major re-designed features.
Final Fantasy 14 servers shut down over the weekend in preparation for the game's A Realm Reborn re-launch. Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn does not yet have a release date, although it is slated to enter beta this winter.
