Posed with the possibility to ask director Yoko Taro, producer Yosuke Saito, and composer Keiichi Okabe concerning the 2017 recreation and its legacy, we inquired about just a few issues.

Enix stated he wished to focus on the Japanese market this time as a substitute of the Western market, I created a recreation for Japanese audiences with a stupendous blindfolded lady wielding a Japanese sword, so it was a shock to me that the sport was a success within the West.
Are you interested by any extra crossovers like these in Remaining Fantasy XIV and PUBG, and with any recreation or media property specifically?
I, Yoko Taro am a slave to capitalism, so I’ll do something so long as I’m paid and can do nothing if there’s no cash in it.
