Final Fantasy Wins Three Guinness World Records

World Records for FF Include ‘Most Prolific RPG Series Ever’

The Final Fantasy series was awarded three Guinness World Records this morning in Frankfurt, during the Final Fantasy XIV FanFest.

Final Fantasy Guinness World Records

The first two records went to Final Fantasy XIV. The game was recognized for the longest end-credits in an MMORPG, clocking in at one hour and 38 minutes. The length of the credits sequence was achieved by including a host of legacy players for their perseverance. Naoki Yoshida took a moment to thank these players for their loyalty, referring to them as Meteor Survivors. This award is an especially impressive achievement considering the journey FFXIV players have undergone. The 1.0 version of the MMO was such a disaster that the game was completely rebuilt from the ground up, hence the subtitle ‘A Realm Reborn’. It took two years and some major staffing changes, but the game was transformed into a highly successful, critically-acclaimed juggernaut. These world records are well-earned.

Final Fantasy XIV was also recognized for having the most original compositions in a video game. The MMO contains 384 different pieces of music.

Finally, Square Enix received the World Record for most prolific role playing game series. Since the beginning of the series 30 years ago, there have been 87 different Final Fantasy games.

Final Fantasy XIV’s next expansion, Stormblood, will be out on June 20th, 2017.
