Hironobu Sakaguchi looks at the upcoming RPG as potentially his last.
At the beginning of the month, we got a some new information about the new RPG from Mistwalker coming to iOS, Fantasian. It will headed up by legendary Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, who is one of the primary Creators of the Final Fantasy series. The game certainly looks interesting and as a nice throwback to the past of the JRPG genre, but it’s also looking like it could very well be Sakaguchi’s last as well.
The 58 year old veteran spoke to VGC, and there he revealed he was looking at the RPG as potentially his last game. While he didn’t definitely say it would be the end, he said that as he and his team developed Fantasian, it’s been in the back of his mind the entire time. Specifically, he stated, “I think it is certainly possible that this could be my last project, and that was kind of in the back of my mind as we were developing it.” He states that either way, he’ll most likely take a long vacation after they finish up the game, and that he isn’t putting a lot of thought into the future for Mistwalker, the studio developing the title and the one that Sakaguchi founded after leaving Square Enix.
Fantasian will release for Apple Arcade, making it playable on all compatible iOS, MacOS and tvOS devices. As of now, there is no release date for the project.
