Learn the True Story Behind Sakaguchi’s Final Fantasy Series

The Mega64 YouTube channel has posted a video that could quite possibly be the best retelling of how Hironobu Sakaguchi created his Final Fantasy franchise. Apparently, his contract forced him to keep making new Final Fantasy games until he released a stinker. Well, as fans of the franchise know that took many iterations, and it wasn’t until the Final Fantasy film that Sakaguchi made his first Final Fantasy related bomb, although, was that film really even as bad as many have made it out to be?

Anyway, the video above is obviously a parody, but it’s a great one. Check it out to see a special guest appearance from another famous game developer who knows a few things about successful franchises.
