Final Fantasy Creator begins playing FFXIV, and names a Lalafell after himself

We have truly come full circle. 34 years ago, Hironobu Sakaguchi, a Square programmer, introduced Final Fantasy to the world. This RPG was a huge success and spawned the iconic multimedia franchise that continues to this day. Sakaguchi, even though he is no longer with Square Enix’s, is still the father of all things Final Fantasy.

Sakaguchi joined Final Fantasy XIV today. It began with a tweet that included a picture of FFXIV’s selection screen. The creator then pondered where to begin. Yasumi Matsuno is another Square Enix employee, who pitched in to create scenarios for FFXIV. pitched Mana as his home, presumably since Matsuno uses a server there.

The following tweets featured Sakaguchi’s character appropriately named “Hironobu Sakaguchi”. (Square Enix did not save Sakaguchi’s name on all servers, since there are similar-named characters on other server. To my dismay, the father of Final Fantasy created his characters as a Lalafell.

Sakaguchi was level 10 at the time this article was written. He is a Gladiator. Sakauguchi also synchronized with Matsuno to learn how to use Zoom apparently’s user interface.

Sakaguchi started this show when he did. He could be sharing the stage at Tokyo Game Show with Naoki Yoshida, FFXIV producer and director. They will be presenting a joint talk titled “Famitsu Presents – The Appeal and Potential for RPG”. The talk will be livestreamed Friday, October 1, 2021, at 5pm PDT.

Sakaguchi seems to enjoy his time in Eorzea. Mistwalker, his studio, launched the RPG Fantasian earlier this year on Apple Arcade. It uses dioramas from real life to create its world and has received many great reviews. Sakaguchi may need some time to relax, but every creator needs it. We wish Hironobu Sakaguchi, the Lalafell, a long and productive adventure!
