Final Fantasy XVI Game Director Naoki Yoshida lets fans know that a Final Fantasy XVI crossover event featuring the studio’s popular Final Fantasy XIV MMO will probably take place in the most humorous way possible. FFXIV is no stranger to collaborating with other titles in the franchise. They often hold an event with Noctis from Final Fantasy XV and have introduced glamor clothing from FFVII and FFX. When asked about working with Final Fantasy XVI, Yoshida was extremely cheeky and said he needed to discuss the idea with the Final Fantasy XIV producer.

What makes this completely hilarious is the fact that Naoki Yoshida is also responsible for Final Fantasy XIV. Basically, he would have to confirm with himself that it’s okay to do a crossover with the upcoming single player title. During the Hong Kong News interview, Yoshi-P fulfilled a popular meme in the community by confirming that it’s up to him and him alone if the collaboration goes through.
The fact that the producer is responsible for both titles basically guarantees that there will be a collaboration event between the two games in Final Fantasy XIV, especially since fan demand is high. Final Fantasy XVI leverages many inspirations from the popular MMO, including Eikon appearances, battle fonts, and other constants from the long-running series.
