The Last Story Director Hironobu Sakaguchi on Launch Day
The father of Final Fantasy supports the cause.
What does Final Fantasy father Hironobu Sakaguchi do on the release day for his latest game, The Last Story?
He lines up to buy a copy, of course!
That's Sakaguchi at Yodobashi Camera in Akihabara buying a copy of his own game ... hopefully just for kicks and not because Nintendo didn't send him a copy.
Sakaguchi has been running around Tokyo all day taking pics of game shops even though such activity is usually frowned upon by store clerks.
He was impressed by the size of the Last Story section at Akihabara's Sofmap:
Here he is posing with a Mr. Hayashi from Famitsu and a Mr. Takehisa, who he lists as the game's producer.
