Hironobu Sakaguchi — best know as the longtime director and producer of the Final Fantasy series — has revealed that he’s working on three iOS games. What started out as an innocent question from a Twitter follower became a major revelation for RPG fans around the world. Check out the details below.
According to Andriasang:
Since The Last Story’s release early last year, we’ve all been wondering what Final Fantasy father Hironobu Sakaguchi has been up to. Out of nowhere today, he provided an update. It appears that Sakaguchi may be working on iOS games.
That’s games, plural. A follower at Twitter asked Sakaguchi for details on his next game. Sakaguchi responded that his new game is for iOS, and he’s making around three titles.
I’m completely psyched for Sakaguchi games on iOS. The man directed two of my all-time favorites: Final Fantasy IV and Final Fantasy V. He supervised the outstanding Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG. He produced dozens of games that are considered all-time classics. Sakaguchi’s most celebrated games were on 8-bit and 16-bit platforms, so perhaps working on an iOS game with a smaller team (as opposed to the hundreds it takes to make a console game) would be ideal for him. Whatever the case may be, I know I’m buying these games on day one…because it’s frickin’ Sakaguchi!
Any of you psyched to see what Hironobu Sakaguchi brings to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch?
