Yoshitaka Amano’s Art Will Appear in Final Fantasy XIV’s First Expansion; Will Have a Role in the Story

Legendary illustrator and character designer Yoshitaka Amano has always been connected with the Final Fantasy series, and his collaboration is set to continue in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s first expansion Heavensward.

During a special episode of the Letter from the Producer Live held at G-Star in Korea today, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida mentioned that Amano-sensei will be tasked with creating something else on top of the package illustration of the expansion.

This special illustration will actually play a part in the story of the expansion, even if no further details were given to avoid spoilers.

Considering that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is setting standards for the quality of the story in a MMORPG, it’s hard not to be excited on what the illustration will be about, and how it will interact with the story.
