New Cinematic Trailer Announces the Rebirth of Final Fantasy XIV on PS3 and PC

It was in the air, since game director Naoki Yoshida said a month or so ago that Square Enix was “not yet ready” to show us a trailer, it was pretty much logical to expect one incoming pretty soon after.

Today the Japanese publisher released a new cinematic trailer reminding us that the 2.0 version of the game is coming with a and very appropriate new title: FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.

The cinematics in the trailer are spectacular, true to Square Enix standard, and bring back the protagonist from the first trailer that we saw a long time ago. This time, though, things look a lot less peaceful, with the war against the Garlean empire coming to its peak.

While many are still harboring doubts about the game’s promised PS3 version, the tail of the trailer is quite clear, specifying that the game is going to be reborn on PS3 and PC.

Naoki Yoshida himself commented:

Since announcing our plans for the future of the title last October, we have been working tirelessly to include all of the elements that we have promised in FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. This new title not only becomes a symbol of a completely new FINAL FANTASY XIV, but also marks the beginning of a new stage as the latest title in the FINAL FANTASY series. I hope you’re looking forward to it!

Personally, as a FFXIV player since day one, I can’t wait to see the results of the effort put in by Yoshida-san and his team. They have done a wonderful job in slowly but surely turning the game around since its unfortunate lunch, and A Realm Reborn promises to be the crowning jewel of all that hard work.

While we wait, you can enjoy the trailer below or visit the completely revamped official website.
