Final Fantasy Creator Teases New Project Announcement In 2017

I just hope it isn't another mobile game, is all.

Posted By | On 28th, Dec. 2016

Hironobu Sakaguchi may no longer work at Square Enix, but the man who created Final Fantasy, and then saw its evolution until its explosion in worldwide popularity, still has a lot of talent behind him. This can be easily deduced by seeing the games he has worked on since his departure from Square- Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and The Last Story, among others, are all great games that are beloved cult classics- all titles that he helmed.

In the last few years, however, Sakaguchi’s attention has been focused on Terra Battle, a mobile game that is rather popular in Japan- that said, he might be gearing up to announce a brand new project soon. In a year-end talk session with 4Gamer (via Siliconera), Sakaguchi teased, “I plan to announce a new title in 2017. Stay tuned!”

As noted above, Sakaguchi has a whole lot of talent and pedigree, so we are excited about whatever it is that he chooses to work on next- my only hope, personally, is that he will return to making console games again, and that this next game won’t be another smartphone title.
