Today during the Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest event in Paris, Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida and localization and translation director Michael-Christopher Koji Fox announced that the Shadowbringers expansion would feature a new Alliance Raid.
The last Alliance Raid, Return to Ivalice, called in guest creator Yasumi Matsuno to continue the story he started in Final Fantasy Tactics. Shadowbringers' Alliance Raids will be built with the help of two new guest creators: Nier Automata, Dragon Quest 10, and Dragon Quest 11 executive producer Yosuke Saito and Nier Automata director Yoko Taro! The raid will be called YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse.
In a short video, the pair of creators joked that "Yoshida-san has lost his mind," asking them to bring Nier over to Final Fantasy 14. In return, Yoshida joked that he'd force the pair to play through the entirety of Final Fantasy 14, before letting them create anything. No further details were given at the presentation.
Final Fantasy 14: Shadowbringers is coming on July 2, 2019.
