During a press panel held today at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, legendary Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi talked about the promised console version of his mobile title Terra Battle.

Asked by Dualshockers on the development of the console game, Sakaguchi-san confirmed that he made a promise to the fans about it, and mentioned that the story and pre-production are almost complete. He also hopes that when gamers will try Terra Battle 2, they will find a lot of similarities with what they would expect from a console game, and that could work as a sort of bridge between Terra Battle and the future console release.

Sakaguchi-san is hoping that fans get the sense that there is a path that will lead to a console release, that is in indeed the works. While pre-production is complete, creating a console game is a huge endeavor. Due to the resources needed for that, it’s not quite there yet, but it is something that Mistwalker will be working on.

A console version of Terra Battle was first promised in April 2015 when the original game reached two million downloads.

Sakaguchi-san is also currently working on Terra Battle 2 and Terra Wars, both part of the newly-named Terra World franchise, and both for PC, iOS and Android.

About Terra Battle 2, you can enjoy the announcement trailer, a batch of charming artwork, and the first gameplay footage.

Regarding Terra Wars, you can check out a video showing a new character and the making of the game’s claymation, and the original announcement.

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.
