The Last Story lead designer Takuya Matsumoto was recently interviewed by GameZone. During the interview, Matsumoto revealed that Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is looking forward to making more action-RPGs, “especially for the Wii U.”
Matsumoto praised the Wii U GamePad because he believes it “will add another level of strategic elements into the action-RPG” genre. Sakaguchi and the rest of The Last Story developement team haven’t announced any plans for a Wii U game but are anticipating Nintendo’s upcoming console.
GameZone: Could The Last Story possibly lead to more action-RPGs — not necessarily in this franchise — but maybe some action-RPGs for the Wii U with a similar style from the same development team?
Takuya Matsumoto: The development team and Sakaguchi-san are looking forward to making more, especially for the Wii U because it has another [screen] right in front of you that will add another level of strategic elements into the action-RPG. So we are really looking forward to it, but we haven’t really planned anything.
