Final Fantasy 14 players pay tribute to the creator of Berserker Kentaro Miura




After the death of the famous manga author and Berserker creator Kentaro Miura, the players of Square Enix MMORPG Final Fantasy 14 paid a virtual tribute. Miura is best known as the author and artist of the comic Berserk, a groundbreaking dark fantasy series that is widely praised for its storytelling, art, and world building. There are many works inspired by Rage, including games such as “Dark Souls” and “Final Fantasy”. One of the hallmarks of the Berserker is the absurd sword carried by its hero Guts. In “Final Fantasy”, many characters use similar large weapons, including “Cloud” in “Final Fantasy 7” and “Dark Knight” in “Final Fantasy 14”. The latter is bluffing to pay tribute to Miura.

The video began to appear online, players wearing dark knight equipment ranked players in major cities near “Final Fantasy 14” to pay tribute to Miura’s “Berger” inspiration. The dark knight profession uses the great sword as the main weapon, and many of its armors related to the story are the inspiration for dark fantasy. In the main city of Ul’dah, the team of players wearing dark knight gear is so long that the MMO is difficult to load normally.

Miura died of acute aortic dissection at the age of 54. Young Animal Comics, which publishes Berserk, issued a statement saying: “We would like to express our utmost respect and gratitude to Dr. Miura’s paintings and pray for his soul.”
