♦New Director for FINAL FANTASY XI (09/01/2010)

We would like to announce the appointment of a new director for FINAL FANTASY XI.

Former Battle Director Akihiko Matsui has assumed the post, and would like to take this opportunity to offer a few words of greeting to our players.


Dear Users,

It is both an honor and pleasure to give this address as the newly appointed director of FINAL FANTASY XI.

With the commencement of official service for FINAL FANTASY XIV imminent, the period ahead will prove to be a turning point for FINAL FANTASY XI. I have had the privilege of being part of the team since the project commenced some ten years ago, but to assume the mantle of leadership at this juncture is daunting indeed.

As director, I intend to work in close cooperation with all project members and involved parties to ensure that FINAL FANTASY XI will continue to hold allure for our players. For truly, nothing would please me more than to see Vana'diel remain a gathering place for those seeking high adventure and camaraderie.

I look forward to your continued support in the future.

Akihiko Matsui
Director, FINAL FANTASY XI

An Egg-hunter Is Hatched (03-18-2010)

Hear ye, hear ye, kupo!
Drop everything you're holding—unless it's a basket of eggs—for the annual Egg Hunt Eggstravaganza event will soon commence!

It's about this time of year that fun-loving adventurers are heard egg-sclaiming, "Gosh, it's been a while since I last heard an egg pun." And who are we moogles to deny them the pleasure, kupo? To answer the call, the trusty Mog House Management Union (MHMU) moogles will be taking to the streets with oodles of eggs cradled lovingly in our little arms, distributing them to egg-semplary adventurers worth their salt sprinkled atop a boiled egg.

And you, Master. When the event begg-ins in earnest, I don't want to see you sulking over shriveled potted plants in the Mog House, but outside hunting eggs, eggs, and more eggs! Kupopopo!

"But I don't know the first thing about egg-hunting," you say? Well, such egg-scuses can be thrown out the window as egg-straneous, kupo! Because for this year's event, fledgling adventurers are being egg-stensively egg-sercised by their resident moogles in the ways of the egg-hunter, and I had the privilegge—erhm...that was probably a mite forced—of being on location for one such lesson!

Lean closer to hear the details, kupo!

The Egg Hunt event is set to begg-in on Thursday, March 25th, 2010 at 1:00am (PDT), and egg-spire on Tuesday, April 6th, 2010 at 1:00am (PDT).
