Sakaguchi talks 360 RPGs

Not playable at TGS?

Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has hinted that neither of his forthcoming Xbox 360 RPGs will be playable at the Tokyo Game Show in September.

However, that doesn't mean work on Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey isn't going according to plan. Referring to the former title, Sakaguchi told Famitsu magazine: "The screen is starting to get developed, and we've been able to decide on the orientation of its graphics, and what kind of lighting and effects we want.

"We're currently in the process of making tons of [additional graphics]."

Lost Odyssey is "progressing about the same," Sakaguchi said.

"The characters are starting to move in the game screen little by little, and we're figuring out where we want to go with its graphics."

He declined to offer any further game details to add to those already known, but did promise that plenty of information will be made available later this year, when we'll also get a chance to see Akira Tokiyama's character designs. Neither Blue Dragon nor Lost Odyssey are down as PS3 launch titles - Sakaguchi has previously stated that one of the games will go on sale within a year of the console's launch, with the other following anything up to one year later.
