The legendary creator of Final Fantasy Hironobu Sakaguchi talked at a panel today at PAX Prime, and he gave a few interesting details on his plans on his wishes for the future.
NOOOO! I just beat the Last Story on my Wii U!
Lost Odyssey Remastered + Lost Odyssey 2 for Ps4. Personally, that's what I wanna see more than anything from Mistwalker.
They'd sell a lot I know this guy had beef with Sony in the past but things have changed, new people are in charge.
"Asked about which consoles he’s planning to work on, Sakaguchi-san clarified that he has no idea yet. It could be PC, Xbox, Playstation or something else." some PC love would be super nice, but if he want's to keep it old school i'll respect that.
I would be surprised if mistwalker made a noncellphone game for anything other than 3DS or maybe vita at this point. If it was exclusive to a console it would very likely be wiiu as nintendo owns the last story ip and the wiiu outsells PS4 weekly in japan,.
Not gonna happen, he hates sony and now makes mobile games but holy crap if true!!!!! remember the famitsu guy saying a ps announcement that will piss off people!! IF this guy is back with SONY then goddamn ps4 has already won the gen
The Last Story on PS4? now this is something i would LOVE to see happen! TGS is shaping up to be interesting!
That won't happen, microsoft owns the lost odyssey ip unfortunantly.
Absolutely. Lost Odyssey is the only game I'd want for X360. But one game isn't enough to justify buying a console. I really want to play it...but can't...
I don't even care if it's for PS4, just make Lost Odyssey 2, it might be the only thing that gets me to buy an Xbox One at this rate.
im not 100% sure, but i think blue dragon and lost odyssey was published by ms. so maybe a port/remaster for a sony device is impossible. laststory was published by nintendo so i think thats gonna be impossible aswell. lost odyssey 2 would be great, loved the mangaka, loved the short stories, battle mechanics may have been basic but good enough. main story was a let down thoughand some characters seemed very ff like. i would love the mangaka to make character designs for another game, but seeing as how he is sick a lot recently i doubt he has time. @kalkano sadly i have a 360 just for this game. i mean i bought console within launch window but never really touched it until i bought this game. never touched my 360 after.
I'd freakin' love that, but I think MS owns the dang IP. Hopefully at least they'll try to do something with it. *Hmm maybe the only reason MS allowed a 3DS Blue Dragon game, while owning it, they could profit from its sales on the 3DS when they didn't have any intention to use it and its not on a competing platform.
@foxtrot his beef was with Ken Kutaragi not Sony.
Wish Infinite Undiscovery comes to PS4. I know its TriAce, not Mystwalker but stil... I heard it was a decent game. Any thoughts on it?
Unfortunately Lost Odyssey was published by MS.
For a second i confused this with the last remnant. Needless to say i was more than a little bewildered. But the last story now thats good :)
And it is so epically good, isn't it?
bring it! bring all this goodness to PS4, please!
The Last Story was a stunning game on the Wii! Made by the creator of Final Fantasy, it would be amazing to play it on the PS4. Would love for him to make a new JRPG game on the PS4!
From the article, quote: "Asked if there was a chance to see a new The Last Story game , Sakaguchi-san answered in English “Ok, yeah, you talk to Nintendo.” Then the moderator of the panel asked who in the audience would want to see a sequel of The Last Story on Wii U, and while the audience cheered and applauded, Sakaguchi-san added, again in English, “And maybe PlayStation 4 too?” Sakaguchi-san was laughing, so he was most probably just teasing the audience, but I can’t say I wouldn’t like to see something like that happen." Un-quote. I'd kiss the man if he made a Last Story sequel and brought it to the Wii U. It, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Pandora's Tower were three of the greatest games to ever grace any console, and more players should have experienced them. Also, he's looking forward to the N3DS, so maaaaybe a new Final Fantasy game will hit it eventually? Fingers crossed; it's been too long.
he is no longer at Square Enix so he has nothing to do the Final Fantasy series anymore and maybe if the Xenoblade port does well i can see Mistwalker and Nintendo bring The Last Story to the N3DS
I would die and go to video game heaven if he made a Last Story sequel on Wii U/PS4. Who cares what system it's on? Just make the game, Sakaguchi-san! I don't even own a PS4 yet and I would buy the system for that.
Sony just sold their shares to square and Sakaguchi-san is hinting at a new handheld. If it is a version of the wiiu(the new handheld) then his game would work on the wiiu by default. After seeing the new Zelda I think he might want to go where the true Jrpg guys are. PS4 is for western rpgs.
The true jrpg guys? Sony has had just as many great jrpgs as nintendo since it released the first playstation.
How many did sony actually make.... um yeah. Also where are all those jrpgs for the ps4?
? LOL! Your post makes little sense. Sakaguchi hasn't worked for square for some time. I don't know what that has to do with anything. True RPGs? Sorry buddy but Nintendo systems have been the LAST PLACE you want to look for JRPGS. Have you seen the damn PS3's line up of JRPGS? GOOD LORD it DESTROYS EVERY SYSTEM! JRPGS tend to come late in generations due to the high install base, most on PS systems. ie Why you don't see Persona 5 on PS4. Cause you damn well didn't see Persona 3 launch on PS3. It came late in the PS2 era along with Persona 4. Its just how Japan does games. and fyi he is going to go where the install base is, he has zero ode to one company or the other for gods sake he made a 360 RPG.
The fuck is up wit your immature ass? Do you really know THAT little about Playstation's history.
Thing is, if he were to announce Last Story for the PS4, this TGS would be it. An attempt to test the waters with an old game for further support.
It's a Nintendo IP.
Which they may have relinquished. Like I said: if it happens, it'll be announce this TGS.
they didnt even self publish it in west. can just as easily be sold. didnt ms have blue dragon which came to 3ds
That's like asking Zelda to come to PS4.
This rumor might disappoint you , But Nintendo will share the Zelda IP with Sony in the near future
Not going happen cause this game is from Nintendo IP. Sorry PS4.
Hmmm, don't know, its not under the list of Nintendo owned IPs.
Link? I'm pretty sure Nintendo doesn't own the IP of this game. Mind you...they merely published the game. Published doesn't = IP. Unless you have some solid facts, this game can end up anywhere Mistwalker wants it to.
vishmarx MS allowed Blue Dragon sequels on DS not 3DS as DS was not a conflict of interest. Nintendo of America allowed Xseed to publish TLS in the US. Nintendo still has full rights to TLS. It's also the reason he says to ask Nintendo. TLS is coming to PS4 as much as Bloodborne is coming to Wii U.
I would poop my pants if the last story goes to ps4!! Wii U would be nice too but I'd like to see dem next gen grafix. Loved the first one. Come on Sakaguchi-san make it happen! I'd like to see one of his games on playstation again...
The Last Story II on the Wii U, please.
That and the 3DS are the only places it can be. Nintendo owns the I.P.
He's probably talking about his next game or a spirtual successor, can't be The Last Story since it's owned by Nintendo. Anyways, I welcome any game made by Mistwalker to the PS4.
If it means coming out of that mobile profit shell, then I'd gladly welcome him back to consoles.
Nintendo has the IP rights so unless Xenoblade and Zelda is going to be on PS4 it's not happening.
This guy needs to make some games on the PS4, he'd probably find better success their then he has any where else recently
When I would get gameinformer monthly they shitted on this game and gave it a 6. This was hyped to the moon and the father of FF made it. Over 100 million Wii sold and this sold like shit, something is Phil Fishy about that.
PS4 and Wii U (along with 3DS) are easily the best places for JRPGs right now.
Not sure whats up with the disagrees. Right now the Wii U is the best selling home console in Japan and the PS4 has yet to take off, if he were to make a game for Sony he'd best put it on the Vita.
PS3 would like to have a word with you. Google its JRPG releases please. JRPGs come late in gens to capitalize on the install base. PS4 and Wii U would not be the place to get your JRPG fix, FARRRRR from it. PS3... Persona 5 would also like to have a word with you LOL!
Could a new game from this man be the 'fuss' the Famitsu editor was referencing? Who knows maybe Sakaguchi and Sony has made amends since the people who he had some tension with is no longer there especially Crazy Ken. I would love to see Sakaguchi make another AAA game, doing mobile games is not what a man of his talents should do.
Maybe. We should wait until next week to see what game that Famitsu talked about.
A triple A RPG game for PS4 by Hironobu Sakaguchi would be awesome.
He needs to release a PS4 exclusive. What was the last major game on PS platforms he had a hand on? FFIX? The Last Remnant still seems to be remembered fondly and one of the best JRPGs last gen in 2006 (or was it 07?), but nothing until then. The Last Story on Wii didn't do great. I heard he had a problem with Kutaragi, but he's been gone from Playstation for a whole generation now.
He didn't direct that game. His last game he directed at Square was FFV. Please dear god look up some facts. He hasn't directed a FF in a very long time, in fact after he was removed as Director is when that series took off. ie FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII (still better then any of his work lol) etc. The only game I like from him is FFIV and I love the job system in FFV (thats about it as FFV has just a horrible story)
Oh, I'm sorry I'm not perfect like you. Also, nowhere in my comment did I ever write the word "direct". I asked what major game he had "a hand" on, not "direct". (Should have made clear I was asking what major game he worked on while he was still as Square). Before you tell me to look up facts, maybe you should do the same, as you clearly put words I didn't say into my mouth, and that's a fact.
how about you make the games in your main franchises like final fantasy and kingdom hearts, that people have been waiting nearly a decade for, before you start remaking semi-obscure wii games.
So much ignorance in this comment. I don't know where to begin.
Yeah, it's so ignorant because you want us to beg for The Last Story to come to Playstation or Xbox, keep this game, we just wanna help this guy make money, is that a bad thing ? Look how many of your fellow Wii owners bought that game, set the man free.
No, it's ignorant because the guy doesn't work for SE, so he can't say or do anything about FF or Kingdom Hearts. Calm the hell down.
He doesn't even work for square and hasn't for years. BTW kingdom hearts is tetsuya nomura's franchise.
He has not been at Square since 2004
The guy doesn't work for Square Enix anymore. He left years ago to form Mistwalker and they've yet to release a game on Sony platforms cause he apparently has beef with Sony. His games have been better than any FF game in many, many years so let's hope he decides to make games for PS4.
I wouldn't mind a direct or spiritual sequel on the Wii U tbh.
I would rather ask Mr. Sakaguchi to make original or new IP for PS4 if he wants to support the platform than to release an old remastered games for it.. But I salute Mr. Sakaguchi for not hating PS4. I remember he used to hate PS3 due to its architecture.. Good old times
PS4 domination reigning
Last story 2 with a remaster of the first included like Bayonetta 2 for the Wii-U, please. :D Not fussed if it's Wii-U only or multi plat or exclusive to PS4/One as I will end up with them all(own the Wii-U atm).
Please Sakaguchi-san.. team up with Square Enix and do the FF7,8,& 9 Remake for PS4. All hail !!
Really surprised that Mistwalker never worked on the PS3 considering it was about the only home console this generation where JRPGs found widespread success.
i think it may have been ms and nintendo actually publishing their games and sony may have just rejected their projects. my theory is that sony is not confident with mistwalker since they dont actually develop their own games, looking at the wiki for mistwalker it seems they codevelop games with other studios. hopefully this gen we will get some mistwalker projects with sony if they atill make console games.
Mistwalker and Sony had a few problems during the ps3 period so yeah no games for it...but thats now in the past...
