The good folks over at the PlayStation Blog reached out to the original game director, Akitoshi Kawazu, to find out how he felt about working on the game so many years ago and what he hopes for the future.
from seeing many creators make flattering comments that they enjoy the SaGa series, I’m hopeful that I’ve left some kind of impression in people’s hearts. – Akitoshi Kawazu
When asked about what he hopes for the SaGa and Final Fantasy franchises in the future, Kawazu-San replied, “By SaGa and Final Fantasy becoming [franchises], I think we were able to establish a system in which the great titles within these series can be played again. Of course, it’s great to play both new games, and also great games from the past. I hope that [these series] can grow into an environment where both creators and consumers are happy.”
