Final Fantasy XV Lead Game Designer Is an Absolute Beast at Rhythm Games: Watch Him in Action

on March 13, 2016 1:38 PM

If you follow Final Fantasy XV‘s development, you probably know Wan Hazmer, Lead Game Designer in charge of the open world, super-likable former indie developer from Malaysia, geek extraordinaire and anime lover.

Yet, there’s one thing that many don’t know about him. He’s really, really good at Rhythm games, that he regularly plays after work at the local arcades in Tokyo.

Today he posted on his personal YouTube channel two videos of himself playing Chunithm, the latest arcade rhythm game from Sega, that can get devilishly difficult when songs are played in Master Mode (which is the mode Hamzer plays in the videos).

He starts with an SS result on the unlockable song Snipe Whole, and getting an SS result in Master Mode is already a feat, but he then follows it up with an SSS “all justice” (basically a perfect result) in Saekano’s opening song Kimiiro Signal. Can’t do better than that.

You can check out the videos below. Just look at how fast his hands go. It’s absolutely mesmerizing. You can also give a look at the rest of his channel, that includes quite a few videos showing his gaming prowess.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
