Who’s That Game Developer?


This is a picture that was taken at Squaresoft years ago. See the person with the blue collar and glasses, next to the lady in the red skirt? Try and guess who that is.


Couldn’t figure it out? Maybe you’re used to seeing him look a little older. The Last Story director, Hironobu Sakaguchi posted this picture to the Mistwalker blog in a recent post. It was taken during the development of Final Fantasy III. Sakaguchi revealed the person’s identity over Twitter.
