Another prominent video game developers who was asked about their plans for 2023 by Famitsu is, Hironobu Sakaguchi, the acclaimed head of RPG studio, Mistwalker. Mr. Sakaguchi jokingly told the publication that he thought it was going to be the year he retired, but he says “I decided to try to give this another go.” He said that he and the rest of the team are hard at work on developing what’s been described as a “dark fantasy” game.

Mistwalker is the studio behind such games as Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and Fantasian.
