Final Fantasy is certainly one of the most profitable games in the history of Square Enix and appreciated by gamers. In these hours, with a tweet on your profile, the creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has defined Final Fantasy 16 as the ‘definitive’ chapter of the famous saga born in 1987 and it will also be the last for the Japanese author himself.
Tramite X, Hironobu Sakaguchi ha scritto: “I’ve completed Final Fantasy 16. It’s the ultimate Final Fantasy, the ultimate Final Fantasy“. For the avoidance of doubt, we clarify that by “definitive” Sakaguchi means the most comprehensive chapter and not the last chapter of the saga which will in fact continue to evolve. Indeed for the same creator it is the Final Fantasy par excellence and the one that best embodies the spirit of the series. Previously, Sakaguchi revealed that he had high expectations for the game and it certainly can’t be said that he disappointed. For example, in Japan it is the PS5 video game that has sold physical copies fastest.
Immediately after its launch, Final Fantasy 16 was the subject of excellent reviews in the West (ours here) but also of a few too many criticisms, mostly coming from the West, which led Naoki Yoshida to exasperation. Speaking of Final Fantasy, more games in the series – and more Square Enix games – are coming to Xbox soon. Meanwhile, Square Enix has made it known that it is also interested in more Triple A productions and the creation of new IPs and in the meantime rumors continue about a possible remake of Final Fantasy 9.
