The story is based off of a series of blog posts written by a young man about bonding with his 60-year-old father while playing the game together; the show will include scenes both in the real world and in the game to weave a narrative. So it’s a story about the stories going on behind an MMORPG, the human dramas that unfold from shared experiences. Which is, let’s face it, pretty darn cool. The show premieres this April.
Final Fantasy XIV, and one such story is being adapted for a new live-action series in Japan. But it’s not just an in-game story. Final Fantasy XIV: Daddy of Light (or Final Fantasy XIV: Hikari no Otousan if you prefer to be a bit more accurate) is about the relationship between a father and a son that develops both in and out of the game.
