Last year, Square Enix formed a committee solely for the Final Fantasy franchise. Final Fantasy Type-0 director Hajime Tabata, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn director Naoki Yoshida, Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama, and long time Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase are members of this group.
What does the Final Fantasy committee actually do? To find out, Siliconera asked Kitase.
“There are numbered Final Fantasy titles, remasters like Final Fantasy X/X2 HD, and mobile titles in the Final Fantasy series,” said Kitase. “We get together and update each other with current information or issues on our projects. [We] make sure there are no release date overlaps or bug issues. When we meet we also talk about if the content being discussed is appropriate for Final Fantasy.”
