Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has offered the first hints at what we can expect from his next game.
Sakaguchi, you may recall, now runs Mistwalker, the studio behind Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. So what's he currently working on?
In a post on the Mistwalker blog Sakaguchi wrote, "Planning to basically put importance on having seamless control of the overall direction of the game, mixed with CG spectacle scenes.
"Controls will have a bit of a trick to it, while having a blend of RPG-type strategy and growth. Behaviours based on interaction with the situation around you... Wait, I'm not supposed to say more than this…"
Sakaguchi reckons he'll be able to properly announce the new project "sometime this year ". He hopes to post artwork, behind-the-scenes anecdotes and introductions to the people working on the game.
"With all the different elements and staff putting their "heart and soul" into it, it feels different from projects until now, but in a good way," wrote Sakaguchi. "Please look forward to it."
