Final Fantasy Union: Episode 151

Should Sakaguchi Return To Direct New Final Fantasy?

Final Fantasy Union: Episode 151

Written by — 11 Jul 2017

Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of Final Fantasy, was recently asked about whether he'd like to return to work on the Final Fantasy franchise. His response was very open ended, but he didn't shoot down the suggestion.

But it begs the question, should Sakaguchi return? Would it be a good thing for the franchise or should they give some other people the opportunity so shine?

We take a big old look at the current state of play when it comes to directors on the main Final Fantasy series, while also taking a look at where they've all ended up. We also shine a small spotlight on some of the upcoming talent within Square Enix when it comes to directing bigger games.

Hopefully you enjoy the deep dive into Final Fantasy directors!
