The recent natural disasters that have struck Japan have forced the servers for Final Fantasy 14 and Metal Gear Online to shut down temporarily.

Square Enix has temporary halted service on Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV, while Konami has temporarily suspended Metal Gear Online. The stoppages appear to affect both in and outside of Japan.

The decisions follow a request from Japanese power companies that all consumers conserve electricity, particularly during peak hours.

Final Fantasy XI and XIV will be offline for a week until March 20, Square Enix said.

In comparison to the other devestation caused by the earthquakes in Japan this is really rather insignificant, but fans of these titles may wish to know. Our condolonces to all who are affected by the incidents in Japan at the moment.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    I swear I was just pondering on this the other day, they’re getting it from all angles.
    My buddy still plays FFXI and those are shut down as well.
    WTH did Japan do to deserve this from the Almighty? They can’t get a break from this at all.

    I think they should have the time to recover from the events in Japan, I understand them closing down the servers.

      I agree, playing a game is insignificant compared to the fact that they may have 2 catastrophic nuclear meltdowns….has anyone heard any news on that situation lately?

    @shastyxmcnasty
    Fuel rods from a nuclear plant exposed and a public health warning has gone out to urge people to remain indoors while there’s homeless scattered everywhere.
    Yeah, the rage of hell is still burning over there.

    The destruction in Japan is mind boggling. I have a few friends there but all in the Tokyo area & were not affected greatly. Totally understand the need 2 conserve power. Hope all those that need help get it.
