While we’re getting an enhanced version of the chibi RPG in World of Final Fantasy Maxima, director Hiroki Chiba revealed that he has already written its sequel and more in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]


Here are some quotes from the interview with director Hiroki Chiba:

  • “With the port to Switch (in World of Final Fantasy Maxima) we took the opportunity to give it an enhancement. To be honest, the budget was low so we were limited to what we could do, but we put in some serious time and did the best that we could!”


  • “Our staff had trouble with the different resolutions for handheld and TV mode. The engine is Orochi Engine, but since it didn’t support Switch we had to get the engine developers involved. This could be the very first game that uses the Orochi Engine on Switch.”


  • “The PS Vita version lacked the memory so it wasn’t able to support the upgrade [for Maxima].”


  • “The story takes place shortly after the events with Lann and Reynn.”


  • “There are no plans for a sequel, but I’ve already written the story. If we get an approval from Square Enix then development could start right away.”


  • “Some fans voiced their opinions on Lann’s puns, so I thought about adding an option to turn off the jokes, but then I felt sorry for the Lann so decided not to.”


  • “We thought about some sort of audio commentary from the characters in cut scenes as part of the second playthrough of the game, but decided against it as it would make it more of a metafiction.”


World of Final Fantasy Maxima releases on November 6, 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. There will be a live stream with new info on the game takes on November 5.
