Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Producer's Loyalty To Series Creator

Yoshinori Kitase’s Dedication to Maintaining Connection with Hironobu Sakaguchi

During a recent interview on Episode 60 of My Perfect Console, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth producer Yoshinori Kitase shed light on his decision to remain with Square following the departure of series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi.

When asked if he ever contemplated leaving alongside Sakaguchi-san, Kitase-san revealed two key reasons for staying. Firstly, he expressed a sense of personal growth and ongoing evolution as a creator, feeling that he was still shaping his own vision within the industry. Secondly, he emphasized his desire for Sakaguchi-san to maintain a connection with the Final Fantasy series despite his departure, highlighting the importance of preserving that legacy.

Kitase-san acknowledged that over time, Sakaguchi-san’s involvement with Final Fantasy had diminished, but recent projects like Mobius Final Fantasy and Terra Battle have rekindled his connection to the franchise. Today, Sakaguchi-san’s influence remains evident, with his legacy continuing to shape the beloved Final Fantasy series.

As Final Fantasy thrives as a popular franchise, Kitase-san’s loyalty to Sakaguchi-san underscores the enduring impact of their collaboration and the ongoing evolution of the series under their guidance.
