Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light Film Remake Gets Two New Commercials in Time for Father’s Day

Two new commercials for the Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light film remake dropped today, which ties in nicely with Father's Day.

The upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light (Final Fantasy XIV: Hikari no Otōsan) remake film received two new commericials, courtesy of the official Final Fantasy XIV Youtube channel. Back in March, Square Enix had announced that they would be remaking the original Dad of Light into a live action movie featuring an all new cast. The film will open on June 21st.

Here’s the official poster for the movie:

The film will star Kentarō Sakaguchi as the son Akio, and Kōarō Yoshida as Akio’s father. Other cast members include Yui Sakuma as Akio’s coworker, Maika Yamamoto as Akio’s younger sister, Ryūta Satō as Akio’s senior at work, and Naomi Zaizen as Akio’s mother. Voice actors for the film’s game parts include Yoshino Nanjō, Minako Kotobuki, and Aoi Yūki.

The film is inspired by the online Ichigeki Kakusatsu SS Nikki’s blog, which is based on real-life experiences. The blog chronicles a father who is over 60 and his son as they play the MMORPG together. It follows both men as the game brings them closer together while each of them are also holding onto a secret.

During E3 2019, a new launch trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers dropped after Producer Naoki Yashida spoke onstage, setting the tone for the story. Not to mention that it will be introducing the new classes Gunbreaker and Dancer, as well as the new (and gender-locked) races Viera and Hrothgar. It was also revealed that Final Fantasy XIV has a playerbase of 16 million prior to the expansion.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, the latest expansion pack, will be coming out for PS4 and PC.
