"Final Fantasy XIV" director and producer Naoki Yoshida shared some details about the game during an event called Letter from the Producer Live from Frankfurt FanFest. The director-producer also revealed that the development team is considering some changes that could be done to improve the game.

"Final Fantasy XIV" Development Team To Implement Some Changes

"Final Fantasy XIV" director-producer Yoshida announced that the development team plans to increase the number of gardening slots for housing. To do this, the team is reported to focus on interior furniture first before moving the feature to allow free companies to move their houses to a new lot. Once done, Yoshida reveals that the team may consider improving the gardening slots.

The "Final Fantasy XIV" team also wants to maintain some hairstyles specific to some races in order to keep the racial identity, although Yoshida said that others may eventually be made available to all races. While making rare-specific underwear sets become available to all races would not be easy, reports indicate that the team acknowledges the fact that most fans would want it.

"Final Fantasy XIV" Omega Weapon is also expected to have some changes, as the team is reported to implement something that will be accessible to a lot of different players. However, reports suggest that a concept among the developers would allow those who clear the fourth leg in the savage difficulty, to gain access to special super-difficult content, Dual Shockers reported.

Square Enix Shares Reason For An Unlikely "Final Fantasy XIV" Nintendo Switch Version

"Final Fantasy XIV" may come to as many systems as possible, based on what Square Enix announced recently. However, this does not mean that the game may also come to Nintendo Switch.

Square Enix reportedly wants to offer the MMORPG franchise to as many gaming platforms as possible. However, Square Enix's game producer Naoki Yoshida also made it clear that it does not automatically mean that it will be made available for Nintendo Switch. He further emphasized that a Switch version is only possible if the version will not limit interaction with other players.

Meantime, the game is also confirmed to make use of the PS4 Pro's extra horsepower in order to enhance the game performance. According to Yoshida, the game would use this instead of the console's power to adapt to a 4K display for game performance.

"Final Fantasy XIV" game producer further revealed that the studio has already started work on a Pro patch, Game Spot reported. Watch "Final Fantasy XIV" Patch 3.5 - The Far Edge of Fate here:
