Final Fantasy XIV accepts three Guiness World Records at Frankfurt Fan Festival By Tony Garsow on February 19, 2017 at 6:37 AM

At the close of the Letter from the Producer Live broadcast at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Frankfurt, Germany, a special ceremony was held to present three Guinness World Records.

Final Fantasy XIV director/producer Naoki Yoshida accepted the award for the “Longest Credits in a MMO”, and while that got a few chuckles from the crowd, Yoshida explained that this is due in part to the Meteor Survivors who participated in the Legacy Campaign that gave their support to the team to create A Realm Reborn and the game that we have now. All in all, Final Fantasy XIV’s credits last a whopping 98 minutes.

Composer and sound director Masayoshi Soken accepted the next world record for “Most Original Pieces of Music in a Video Game”, where Final Fantasy XIV now has 384 tracks. Soken joked when he accepted the award, as if to ponder “oh, so that’s how many tracks are in the game?”

The final award was presented to Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda on behalf of the entire Final Fantasy franchise. The award “Most Prolific Role-playing Series” represents the 87 titles that now compose the franchise. Matsuda commented that it was an honor to accept the award and that they couldn’t have done it without the fans. He asked for your continuing support in the years to come.

    Where’s the fourth? “Best comeback from a horrid release” 1.0 was an atrocity comparable only to not making it to the toilet in time.

    Good on them, it’s a fantastic game.
