Final Fantasy XIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka has said in a Twitter update that the recent “fatigue” system discussion in the upcoming MMORPG is nothing but “fabricated remarks”.
Our earlier report, based off a Sankaku Complex (NSFW) post, touched on a Famitsu.com interview where it was apparently said fatigue in Final Fantasy XIV rises fifty percent in two hours – meaning players would have to stop playing two days for it to go back to zero.
Tanaka has debunked those reports.
“Foreign sites have lots of false rumors,” Tanaka wrote. “They throw together words and fabricate remarks. Then Japanese sites take this and further [falsify it through] mistranslation. The fatigue point criticism has absolutely nothing to do with the actual [system] and is just full of wild ideas.”
While we still don’t know quite exactly how this fatigue system works, we’ll come to find out soon enough. Final Fantasy XIV launches on September 30 for PC and in March 2011 for PS3.
