Yes, Babylon’s Fall is borrowing content from Final Fantasy 14, and that’s to be expected

On the game’s official website, ubiquitous producer Yosuke Saito isn’t beating around the bush and confirms that Babylon’s Fall does contain gear and emotes borrowed directly from Final Fantasy 14. An exchange of good practices to give a boost to a PlatinumGames still neophyte in the register of online multiplayer games, but which also allows to make some savings.

When I did my Babylon’s Fall presentation at a company meeting, Final Fantasy 14 producer and director Naoki Yoshida was also present and offered to help. This is how the plan came to fruition. We then carefully implemented the data while closely coordinating our action with the Final Fantasy 14 team. By borrowing this data, we were able to bring into the game a variety of equipment and emotes that were much larger than what was expected. we originally planned. To be clear, the visuals for most of the gear players are looking to get in the game are unique to Babylon’s Fall.“, explains Yosuke Saito, who apologizes however for the inconvenience caused.

In order to wash away all suspicion, the much appreciated Naoki Yoshida also made an intervention to explain the situation to the players. The guardian of the temple Final Fantasy 14 recognizes that this transfer of resources also has some economic advantages, the budget of Babylon’s Fall as a new risky license being far from unlimited. The idea of ​​lending content to PlatinumGames would have come directly from him.

I myself am a huge fan of online games, gamer, and developer. This is why I would be really happy if Babylon’s Fall would succeed and bring Japanese online games back to life while increasing the number of players in the genre. So I suggested using the resources from Final Fantasy 14. We have so many that it would be a shame to limit them to Final Fantasy 14, and that’s how it all started. At the time, I didn’t realize it would become such a hot topic … of course, the subtle design changes and tweaks when they are implemented in Babylon’s Fall will be fully overseen by the team at Final Fantasy. 14 to make sure they fit well into his world“, explains the producer of the MMO.
