The Gooch Will Return in Spring

Final Fantasy father Hironobu Sakaguchi says name set for new project.

Hironobu Sakaguchi (possibly at Halloween).

Hironobu Sakaguchi is Mistwalker CEO, Final Fantasy father, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey producer, and member and president of the mustache club. He's been teasing an upcoming game since March 2008. It looks like we'll have to wait until around March 2010 to get our first glimpse.

In a recent post at the Mistwalker official site, Sakaguchi wrote about the project, "I thought we'd announce the new title within the year, but it's running a bit late. My apologies. Next year, perhaps Spring?"

This doesn't look like vaporware, though. Sakaguchi also mentioned that the game's title has been set and said that the development staff is working extremely hard.

The blog post also includes a discussion about how Sakaguchi spent his free Sunday, and some of the meetings and encounters he's been having as the year comes to an end. Official English translations of Sakaguchi's blog posts usually trail by a few days.

For those who've been trying to keep up with Sakaguchi's posts on the new title, Game Jouhou! has posted the relevant points from all his posts over the past couple of years.
