Final Fantasy XIV is getting a live action series based on a true story By Erren Van Duine on January 26, 2017 at 8:47 PM

Square Enix is putting together a live action drama series based on a real story that happened in Final Fantasy XIV. Titled “Final Fantasy XIV Daddy of Light”, the drama will begin broadcast on MBS/TBS in Japan this April. Japanese actors Yudai Chiba and Ren Oosugi will be playing the part of the main characters.

This drama coincides with the 30th anniversary of the Final Fantasy mainline series and is inspired by the story of a father and son’s relationship that gradually changes due to their encounters in Final Fantasy XIV. The drama series will feature the real game, showing what it’s like to participate in the online game world.

According to the original blog, “The Father of Light” focuses on the story of a father and son who have issues communicating. The son, who plays FFXIV and wants to get in on some friend referral bonuses, gets his 60-year-old father to join the game after receiving a PS4 from his wife as a birthday present. The son helps him create a character and eventually joins him on his adventure through the game, helping him out without revealing his true identity.

    the hildibrand storyline gets even deeper

  • Exactly what I thought

  • Randy Marsh

    This is truly bizarre…

  • Krijn van Alten

    A series, fine. But a live action series, a am not so sure….

  • Vallen

    Had to read the title of the article a few times to make sure I wasn’t drunk and misreading it

  • “Daddy of Light”…….

  • Randy Marsh

    I know it sounds bad, but it’s actually pronounced Daw Dee.

  • Noctis

    lol what?

  • Jen Scura

    Why does it feel like this is the setup to one hell of an April fool’s joke?

  • Ruebeus

    Lol what? A true waste of time watching other people act.
    Lol what? A true waste of time reading other people’s books.
    Lol what? A true waste of time eating other people’s food.

    Starting to understand yet?

  • Noctis

    A true waste of time reading your comment

  • NewestType

    I’m just saying, YouTube making that ad revenue off video game viewing everyday.

  • Ryuke

    You forgot the extra “lol” at the end of each example. Trolls tend to overuse “lol” or “lmao” or similar to make it seem as if they don’t care about something, or they are above something. When actually the true waste of time for them is stopping to comment on something they don’t care about, because it obviously REALLY affects their day if they don’t swing by and make a dumb comment.

  • Noctis

    well you wasted your time replying on my comment

  • Ryuke

    I didn’t reply to your comment? My previous post was replying to Ruebeus, which is why it says “Ryuke -> Ruebeus”

    THIS is a reply to your comment.

  • Noctis

    So you did waste your time right now^^

  • Ryuke

    Not at all, I’m not the one complaining about my time being wasted. I have time to kill, hence why I’m here having discussions on different articles.

  • Ouka Ori

    No no, it’s more like watching other people watch other people act.
    Or watching other people reading books.
    Or watching other people eat food made by other people.

    It’s one thing watching a “Let’s Play” of the game someone’s actually playing. This sounds like they’re just going to have us watching the people, not the game.

    Did you just wake up from a decade-long coma?

    People might think this is a weird premise for a show, and they would be right– but for Japan, weird shit is their norm. One of their most popular shows is just people trying not to laugh in public and then getting smacked and screaming in pain.

    And remember Game Center CX The Movie? That was an even sillier “based on a true story” film where they gave a random kid who came up on stage with Arino his own entire backstory, about wanting to woo a girl he liked, eventually traveling through time to then be the kid who went on stage and died and went to sit down again.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    Disappointed; I thought when this was first announced that it would be a series set in the FFXIV world.

  • NC is swarming with pests after FFXV. It may wind down a few months later hopefully.

    You sound like smart fun. I told my boyfriend the same thing. That given the media we often see from japan, this seems quite tame.

  • NewestType

    Glad someone else says it.

  • NewestType

    This is like an old, late night show joke? I think Sara Silverman’s ex did it.

    He’s a known shitposter, and a delusional one at that. He’ll never be able to comprehend anything you throw at him.

  • Noctis

    Yes can you explain what happened?

    Watching other people play video games is now a multi-million dollar super-industry that has made video games a more profitable sector than ever.
