This man is promising a revolutionary new JRPG, and we sat down to talk with him about what that all is composed of.
RPGSite had a chance to discuss all things Project Phoenix with the game's lead director and producer, Hiroaki Yura. The two discuss influences, the challenges of collaborating with world-spanning talent, and advice he had received along the way. Also, fair warning: there are some really nerdy moments below
Hiroaki Yura -
"Oh, right. [laughs] You do know I am good friends with Mr. Sakaguchi? (Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of Final Fantasy)."
"I really feel that JRPGs... to me it's about the story and how moving and how important and how profoundly it affects the players."
"We just want to prove to the world that our concept is going to work."
