Final Fantasy XV Director Tetsuya Nomura Doesn’t Feel His Fame, Defines Himself The Company’s Slave

Tetsuya Nomura is very popular between fans of the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts fanchises, but he doesn’t think of himself as a famous man, giving a small glimpse on the Japanese game development culture. (Final Fantasy XV, PS4, Tetsuya Nomura, Xbox One)

He should be ashame of Final Fantasy XIII and making a trilogy of that garbage. Final Fantasy Versus should have been release and not delayed for 5 freaking years.

Maybe he's not ashamed of Final Fantasy XIII because he didn't work on it.

Not that there's actually anything to be ashamed about in FFXIII mind you.

He wasn't the guy behind 13,that was Toriyama.

He has been working on Versus(15) the entire time.

I think im one of the few that is not looking forward to both FFXV and KH3. I have always hated that battle system. To easy to beat enemies just tapping X. Sucks that i like what hes doing with the whole world concept, but fighting engine is a big downer for me. I respect the guy though very talented and always enjoyed his designs, but with the exit of uematsu and sakaguchi its lost all appeal. Has anyone heard what mistwalker has been working on?

It's always been a dream of mine that either he gets promoted at Square Enix or that him and his team join Sony as part of Studio Japan.

Well, that's depressing.
Abriael  +   399d ago
I wouldn't say depressing. I'm much more keen on developers that see themselves like this than on those with a big head like Molyneux for instance.

If Final Fantasy XV & Kingdom Hearts III didn't sell well enough. This could be the end for Square Enix.

Square is making tons of money on social games in Asia. The new boss even wants to focus in social games only because they are making the most money for the company... He's even worse than Wada if you ask me.

I don't think they're in a ton of trouble. They make a lot off of publishing.
Plus I think they do a lot of anime and make quite a bit off of that too.

And in all honesty does anyone actually think KH3 will sell poorly? All of the handheld games have strong numbers for their systems so they'll be fine.

If Nomura-san want to be more free and less of a slave when creating games, why not create a studio that will initially work for Sony exclusively? Sony has been receiving praises left and right from devs, both first and second party, because of the freedom given to them by Sony.

Imagine a JRPG from Nomura exclusive to the PS4 with dev time longer than usual as granted by Sony.

He's famous due to his crafts like Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8 and 9 and I believe he's also involved in character desgin of Chrono Cross, if I'm not mistaken.
