Square Enix is beginning the Final Fantasy XIV retail push in Japan a month ahead of the game’s release with retails posters. Square currently has two posters designed for the game — one by longtime retro Final Fantasy concept artist, Yoshitaka Amano, and the other by Ivalice series artist Akihiko Yoshida.


Producer at Square, Shinji Hashimoto, gave fans a sneak peak at the two via Twitter:

    Ok now the real question is: Where can i buy those sweet posters? :-D

    • Seconded. I need that FME poster…

    Probably blashphemy to old-school FF fans, but I like the Akihiko Yoshida design style for FF more than Yoshitaka Amano now. Amano’s stuff is getting repetitive after so many years…

      You know Amano is actually responsible for creating designs for late 60’s/70’s Tatsunoko creations such as Speed Racer, Gatchaman, Casshern, Tekkaman, Yattaman? Only Vampire Hunter D is the one that closely resembles his gothlike FF art style (since its from the 80’s)

      I’d like to see him go back to his 70’s style :P

        Yup, from the old Tatsunoko days. I was just referring to the illustration / artwork he’s done for FF since the other series aren’t relevant to the article :)

      Different strokes for different folks. I like Amano’s art. It’s so unusual in video game art and it’s instantly recognizable. Plus, it’s sort of weird to fault an artist for being “repetitive”. I mean, that’s his signature art style, and maybe he even likes it. :|

      ps- I do like Yoshida’s art as well. :)
