1UP interviews Hironobu Sakaguchi

Check out the latest interview with the creator of Lost Odyssey, Hironobu Sakaguchi:

"With Lost Odyssey out in Japan for nearly two months now, and making its way to U.S. stores in just a few weeks time, we took this opportunity to ask Final Fantasy creator and producer for Mistwalker's RPG Hironobu Sakaguchi for some post-mortem thoughts on the project.

1UP: Looking back, what was the most difficult part of Lost Odyssey's development process?

Hironobu Sakaguchi: I came back to game production on Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey after three years of being away. Learning about the new technology was very exciting, but my biggest desire with Lost Odyssey was to make an innovative game that would incite players' emotions. So I took a less risky way and made a traditional style game, but put a lot of effort into the stories in the game. My wish is that players will be absorbed into the conflicts and moral dilemmas in Lost Odyssey.

1UP: What are you most and least happiest with in the game?

HS: I am most happy when I see a tear in the eye of someone playing Lost Odyssey. I wish for people to not play the game without paying attention to the story and difficult situations they will face."

I'm personally looking forward to hearing about his next RPG projects.
