Yasumi Matsuno Talks Current Projects

In an interview with Gpara.com, Square producer Yasumi Matsuno talked about his current and future projects. The creator of Final Fantasy Tactics said that sometime next year a big title, directed and produced by himself would be released, but refused to give any details. It remains to be seen, whether he was talking about Final Fantasy XII, of which he is the producer, or about an entirely new project. The former assumption however is clearly contradicted by earlier announcements, according to which Hiroyuki Itou is directing Final Fantasy XII.

Similar to most other developers, Matsuno sees online gaming as the one major trend in the industry, citing Ultima Online and Final Fantasy XI as prime examples.

Personally, Matsuno's favorite games are the Famicom and Super Famicom installments of The Legend of Zelda series. Asked to introduce a friend of his, Matsuno, who joined Square in 1995, mentioned the head of Square's development team No 1 and director of Final Fantasy VII, VIII and X, Yoshinori Kitase.
