Surprise! It’s probably not the game you were hoping for
Hironobu Sakaguchi is making an appearance at Japan Expo next Wednesday, during which he’ll discuss his prolific career and a secret project he’s got in the works. I’m hoping it’s a Final Fantasy kind of secret, you know what I mean?
Sakaguchi is, of course, the Executive Producer of the Final Fantasy series, and head of his own development studio Mistwalker. Mistwalker was responsible for one of the saddest role-playing games I’ve ever played (Lost Odyssey) so if this happened to be news on a sequel or even a new IP, I’d be tickled pink.
Regardless, we’ll find out on Wednesday. And if you’re lucky enough to attend, Sakaguchi will be available for a signing session and photo shoot. Color me extremely, ridiculously jealous. Let’s all take a group trip to Japan Expo. Coming with me?
