Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Plans to Announce His New Game in 2017

Mistwalker President and Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has been rather vague on his upcoming projects, but today he mentioned, as part of 4Gamer’s traditional year end mass interview, that we might finally hear something solid soon.

According to Sakaguchi-san, the plan is to announce his new game in 2017.

So far we know that Sakaguchi san has been working on a console version of his successful mobile JRPG Terra Battle, and we recently heard that development has been progressing, but the road to completion is “steep.”

He also announced a technology partnership with Bravely Default developer and middleware provider Silicon Studio for a new game.

At the moment we don’t know if those projects are the same, and they also match the game that Sakaguchi-san intends to reveal in 2017, of if they are completely separate games. Looks like we’ll have to wait for next year in order to know for sure.

Considering how good Terra Battle is, I can’t wait to hear what Sakaguchi-san is working on, and I definitely hope we’re talking about the console version of the IP, but time will tell.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
