Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi talks about the idea of ​​creating updated versions of Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, and The Last Story

Japanese game designer Hironobu Sakaguchi, known as the creator of Final Fantasy, has no interest in remasters or remakes of his major RPGs released in the years since he left Square Enix. These are Blue Dragon (2006), Lost Odyssey (2007), and The Last Story (2011). The first two were created exclusively for the Xbox 360 with support from Microsoft, and the third was developed in partnership with Nintendo.

According to Sakaguchi, the production of updated versions of games today can take as much time and effort as the development of completely new projects. And he is more interested in spending this time on the implementation of new ideas instead of returning to old ones.

“To be honest, at the moment there are no plans for remakes. Personally, I am more attracted to the idea of ​​working on another original story or universe, the idea of ​​creating something completely new,” he explained.

However, even if the creator of Final Fantasy would like to update his old games, it is not a fact that it would be interesting to Microsoft and Nintendo, who own the rights to them.

After the release of The Last Story in 2011, Sakaguchi dived into mobile gaming. His latest game, Fantasian, is being built with support from Apple for the Apple Arcade subscription service.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
