FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Previewing the Storm in Hamburg

Today sees another dev blog update for FFXIV: Heavensward. We have quoted the new info below.


Greetings, everyone!

Bayohne here, reading over dispatches from Project Manager M directly from the field on the next leg of the Stormblood media tour!

With the San Francisco event in the books, Yoshida, Foxclon, and Project Manager M headed to Hamburg, Germany for the European leg of the tour!

She told me it was sunny and "very green" there (a stark difference to our overcast San Francisco adventure!).

The European media tour was held in this very Doma-like location!

Here's the setting of the most recent Letter from the Producer LIVE! With as much as Yoshida had to convey, I'm sure it was really tough on our translator, Aimi (pictured left). I bet players around the globe would like to say thank you for all your hard work, Aimi!

Once again, Yoshida started each morning with a presentation.

After that, the media could go hands-on with the game and play to their hearts' content (within the tour areas)!

Interviews with Yoshida were also peppered throughout the event as well, just like in San Francisco. The samurai outfit that made its debut at the Frankfurt Fan Festival is also on display.

Since the event lasted so long, we had a few other activities for media to do if they wanted to take a break. For instance, they could practice Japanese calligraphy.

Here you see Foxclon writing "Morbol" in Japanese and trying to look cool. (He looks very proud of his work!)

They could also enjoy some tea together.

Or they could challenge "Carbuncle Origami (Savage)"! (It wasn't meant to be "Savage" but it seems that's the feedback we received the most...)

That's a wrap on two weeks of the Stormblood global media tour!

We hope you're looking forward to the articles from the media!
