on February 6, 2013 12:30 PM

As the time for the closed beta approaches, fans are demanding more information on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. After all it’s been more than a month since the FFXIV servers have been closed for good, and if Twitter and the official forums have to be believed, many are starting to have withdrawals.

Today Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida came to the rescue with a new Letter from the Producer that included quite a few (unfortunately small) screenshots portraying an elzen female and a lalafell male, with another screenie of the upcoming benchmark as a bonus.

He also shared that the next Letter from the Producer will include the starting date for the beta test, and he advised that starting on February the 10th he’ll be traveling the world for a media tour, at the end of which he’ll do another Letter from the Producer Live broacast, meaning a new slew of information is incoming.

In the meanwhile, you can squint a lot and check out the screenies below.
