Hironobu Sakaguchi, the father of FINAL FANTASY took to the stage this evening to make a very heartfelt address to the crowd prior to this evenings major announcements:
“Final Fantasy is like a child to me.
I’ve watched it grow up and mature, and set off toward a future full of endless possibilities.
But like any father, you occasionally wonder if the path your child is on is the right one.
I had a chance to sit down with Director Tabata, who told me that he plans to guide FINAL FANTASY back to its challenger roots.
I felt assured by his words, because the FINAL FANTASY I remember was constantly seeking new challenges, and never sitting comfortably in any given place.
I’m excited to be here tonight, with all of you, to see just how FINAL FANTASY has rediscovered its true nature.
With that, I’d like to take my seat and enjoy the uncovering of FINAL FANTASY XV with all of you.”
