Sony Computer Entertainment Japan recently held the 2013 PlayStation Awards in Tokyo to honor the year’s best PlayStation releases. Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn received the Special Award in recognition of its “originality, buzz-worthiness, influence, and performance.”
After the massive debacle the original version of Final Fantasy XIV was, combined with the financial difficulties of Square Enix’s year-to-date, it’s refreshing to hear some positive news coming from the company. And even more good news is coming thanks to the announcement that the official service start date for the PS4 version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is scheduled for April 2014.
The April 2014 release will follow a beta test of the game set to begin on February 22, alongside the PS4’s Japanese launch date.
