Hironobu Sakaguchi has said he could be picking up a pipe and slippers once his latest project is over.
The Final Fantasy creator is currently working on The Last Story, an RPG for the Wii. Writing on his blog (as translated by Kotaku), Sakaguchi said the game "might be my last work". Apparently he's knackered after pouring all his energy into it.
So will it be worth the effort? Have a look at the trailer if you want to take a guess. A release date for The Last Story is yet to be announced.
