Hironobu Sakaguchi talked about Square-Enix's JRPG series in an interview with Full Frontal.moe during the Munich Anime Game International Conference in February.
Sakaguchi remains, as the series' creator, very attentive to the JRPG series' branches in recent years. Among the most significant iterations of Final Fantasy XVI, according to Sakaguchi, who has already appreciated Naoki Yoshida's work on Final Fantasy XIV, is the project scheduled to launch on June 6 on PlayStation 5.
Final Fantasy XIV is a community game, and it has all the community elements that I appreciate. Naoki Yoshida is a professional producer and director, and I really admire him and what he does. He also has a lot of respect for the old Final Fantasy games, which he really understands the spirit of.
Sakaguchi is pleased with the Final Fantasy VII remake project, which is breathing new life to one of the most popular roles-playing saga chapters: "Yoshinori Kitase, who edited the films as a student, is responsible for the remake. The series has improved tremendously since the sixth installment, but with current technology, it's at its best potential."
