If you’re a fan of Final Fantasy XI, it’s easy to feel at times like you’re sort of the forgotten child. Sure, the game still gets monthly updates, but it isn’t getting big expansions or the budget of the newer online title. But it’s exciting to see that there may be a new fan gathering for the title happening on Thursday, February 27th, up in Boston. More to the point, it’d be an official fan gathering with director Yoji Fujito and producer Akhiko Matsui, who will be present for both Q&A and a presentation of some kind.
To curb your enthusiasm, we feel it’s important to point out that it’s not yet clear whether this is official or a well-orchestrated hoax, as the page listing the event is currently unavailable and people only copied the text without screenshots. There’s no announcement yet through official channels. Still, for a community that’s eager to hear about new things for the game and a North American community accustomed to not having many official events for the game? It’s an enticing rumor if true.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting a #FFXI Fan Gathering in Boston during PAX East! To make the event extra special, we will be joined by Director Yoji Fujito and Producer Akihiko Matsui!
Stay tuned for more details on how you can attend this special event! pic.twitter.com/MwHGatGU4a
