Producer Takashi Tokita Discusses the Past, Present, and Future of Final Fantasy on Mobile Devices
This week we had the chance to catch up with folks from Square Enix who were in town to show off a handful of their upcoming releases. Among the previews that we sat through was a mini presentation and then an interview with gaming industry veteran and producer Takashi Tokita. We spoke about the “legacy” series of Final Fantasy titles (I – VI) which has hit (or in the case of VI, about to hit) both iOS and Google Play.
Tokita discusses the ins and outs of transitioning from consoles to mobile devices, including the necessary tweaks that come in to play for a more laid back, pick up and put down experience. During our discussion,Tokita also notes that he’s aware that fans are waiting for “VII and beyond… and that it’s something that is being contemplated by the higher ups at Square Enix.”
