Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Working on a New Game in 2016 in Parallel with Terra Battle

Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is enjoying new found success with his adorable mobile RPG Terra Battle, but he doesn’t want to stop there.

The veteran developer told Famitsu App that for 2016 he intends to continue developing Terra Battle, including Yasumi Matsuno’s scenario and the upcoming Chapter 35, but at the same he intends to proceed with the production of a new game in paralel, featuring innovation and a new world view.

Sakaguchi-san did not specify whether he’s talking about the announced MMORPG for consoles set in the Terra Battle‘s world, or something entirely different, but considering how good Terra Battle is, and the creator’s pedigree, color me interested.

    preez be a home console title Sakaguchi! The last one he made (the last story) was apparently the bomb and i never got to it, so i need to get the experience this time around damn it!

      You should play it if you get the chance, it’s an excellent game.

      • Bonn Bo

        I should get to it, that game looked sweet.

    • Bebop

      the last story was dope as hell

      • Bonn Bo

        yeah i’ve heard! if i can, i’d get back to it

      It’s a great story, but the combat is kind of meh. I blame the motion controls, though. Forewarning, it’s several years old now, so it will look like SD mud, but it’s worth the time.

      • Bonn Bo

        ugh, i totally forgot about those controls…

        • The classic controllers that plug into the Wii mote are also usable if you don’t like the motion controls. They are much better.

      • I played it with classic controller pro. Much better lol.

        Eh, I actually thought the combat was one of the best parts about the game. Could use a bit more polish, especially more variety in special attacks but it was super fun regardless. Boss fights were awesome. Story-wise, it was good but nothing on the level of Sakaguchi’s other games(Lost Odyssey and Final Fantasy VI), IMO.

    Nothing but respect for Mr. Sakaguchi, but man his output in these past few years has been disappointing. So much potential and vision, and he’s spending it on surf board and other mobile games.

  • Sadly it likely won’t be something in the vein of Last Story. I would love to be wrong though! He mentioned wanting to do an action RPG for Wii U way back before that came out, but sadly nothing came from that.

    • Thank You Based Nippon

      I would buy a Wii U for that

    This is a name that hasn’t gotten me excited for many years… And probably never will again.

    Terra Battle is the freemium model done right, much more generous than the typical game that hits a paywall pretty quickly. The only mobile game that has kept me interested more than a couple of weeks with a friendly online community that is very helpful to new players.
