Final Fantasy: Uematsu may have composed his last complete soundtrack

Final Fantasy

Nobuo Uematsu is one of the greatest composers in the world of video games: we are sure that no one can say otherwise. The man has worked for years on most of the games in the Final Fantasy saga, putting his signature on some of the soundtracks that have marked the childhood (but also the maturity) of many fans. Let's not forget his work on Chrono Trigger, Lost Odyssey and The Last Story. He has also recently worked on Fantasian, but it seems that it could be his last complete work.

Fantasia is the new game by Hironobu Sakaguchi, exclusive to Apple Arcade. Uematsu has created a complete 60-piece soundtrack for the game. Sakaguchi explains, however, that it was not easy. "Before he started working on Fantasian, he was having some health problems and we weren't sure if he was able to compose every single piece or even work with us. I think he more or less suggested that Fantasian might be the last game for him. which composes a complete soundtrack. "

In other words, according to Sakaguchi, Uematsu would not retire, but may decide not to work on creating a complete soundtrack by himself. However, he could work as a support or take care of individual changes as in the case of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Notwithstanding that his health comes first, certainly fans would love to hear more of his compositions in the future. Sakaguchi however states that Uematsu gave his all for Fantasian, so we can enjoy his creation in the new game.

Still on Fantasian, here is the story trailer and trailer on the particular Dimengeon feature released.

Nearly 6,000 Final Fantasy 14 players banned for trading with real money

Square Enix has banned thousands of Final Fantasy 14 accounts for illicit activities, including real money trading.

In Final Fantasy 14, players can buy, sell, and trade items with each other. Unfortunately, such a system is subject to abuse, something Square Enix is trying to stamp out.

The publisher recently confirmed that over 5,000 players were caught engaging in real money trading, essentially selling items to other players for actual money and not the in-game currency, as well as other illicit activities.

Between February 25 and March 3, exactly 5,037 accounts were terminated. A further 814 accounts were also terminated for advertising real money trading, bringing the total to 5,851 players to be banned from the game.

A post on the official website asks that anyone who spots any confirmed cheats of any kind or players advertising real money trading must report these instances immediately using the in-game systems.



‘We will continue to take stringent disciplinary action against any accounts with confirmed involvement in RMT/illicit activity; players should take care to steer clear of any activity that violates the Terms of Service.’

Aside from just generally being a nasty thing to do, this kind of cheating undermines and upsets the balance of the game, potentially providing players who are willing to spend the cash an unfair advantage.

Square Enix clearly wants the practice stamped out as soon as possible, not just for the sake of the game and its players but in preparation for the next expansion, Endwalker.

Endwalker isn’t releasing until later this autumn but it will coincide with Final Fantasy 14’s release on PlayStation 5, which is likely to bring in brand-new players that may have been unable to play it before.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. It will release for PlayStation 5 this autumn.
