Last Story=Last Game?

Quote:
Is The Last Story Hironobu Sakaguchi's Last Game?

Producer gets fans talking following blog post.

Hironobu Sakaguchi created one of the most influential games of all time with Final Fantasy.

Flash forward two decades, past Final Fantasy The Spirits Within, past Blue Dragon, and past Lost Odyssey, and Sakaguchi is hard at work on The Last Story, an original Wii RPG that Nintendo will be publishing.

He's working so hard on the game, in fact, that it could end up being his last title! Wrote Sakaguchi at his blog today, "I'm pouring everything into this one title. The feeling of it perhaps being my last title is strong."

We have a feeling he's speaking figuratively, but fans of the Final Fantasy father's work on both sides of the globe have been taking this comment to imply a deeper meaning to The Last Story's name (not that we know the surface meaning yet -- Nintendo still hasn't said much about the game).

Regardless of what becomes of Sakaguchi following The Last Story's completion, we'll at least know he's giving the game his all -- and then some! Wrote Sakaguchi, "The development staff and I are putting 120% of our energy into this title."

For more Sakaguchi ramblings, in English, visit the official Mistwalker blog. This latest post is currently available only in Japanese. English translations usually follow within a few daysly 14, 2010

Hmm, Zero doubts that The Last Story will be Sakaguchi-san's final game. It seems more like maybe he's instead searching for that same motivation and creativity he found while making the first Final Fantasy game...as it was, at the time, Square's last attempt at a high quality title after several failures. He's probably hoping history will repeat itself if he puts his mind to it. Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey were good games - BD to a lesser extent - but let's face it, they definitely flew under the radar.

On a related note, though, The Last Story is looking amazing:

he doesnt work on final fanasty anymore, not since 4 i think.although that can easily be wrong, its merely from what i heard.

Also:
Quote:
The energy poured into this project by the development team and I are 120%. I'm hoping you can understand that, however on the other hand, I feel worried and nervous like sending my child on a trip alone. Emotionally it feels like this is my last work, while pouring everything I have gotten into this project. Never regret, but now "enjoying"; furthermore, aiming towards completion. The sense of "This is it" relaxes my shoulders, its pleasant feeling to conduct an orchestra by the sense of my intuition.
Not exactly calling quits for him, but sounds like it right? Either way, he probably will stay in the game, but I dont think he will make any other games other than last story.

The last Final Fantasy game Sakaguchi-san directed was V. After that, he went on to produce several more game in the series; the last one being IX, which he has, in the past, claimed to be his favorite. He was also an executive producer on other popular Squaresoft games, though, such as Xenogears, Parasite Eve, Brave Fencer Musashi, and even Kingdom Hearts & Final Fantasy X.

Fun Nintendo-related Fact: He was a supervisor in the development of Super Mario RPG.
