Is anyone surprised that Square screwed up a game that could have been great?

Is there any chance of this interview getting translated in full?

As a huge Matsuno fan, I'd be really excited to read the whole thing.

Edit: And thank you for translating the tidbits you did, FinalFantasyDog. Very interesting!

Love Matsuno. Pretty ballsy of him to go against the grain on purpose. Also, glad to hear he liked RDR.

There's some other interesting info on there, but I haven't finished reading it yet.

Damn that would've been a godly title.

I can definately see why he thinks ac is japanese.
It's very formulaic in it's gameplay, something you see very often with newer japanese games.

Matsuno is a genius and fuck square for trying to cater to their fujoshi audience with FFXII.
They are limiting final fantasy to such a special interest niche with that shit.

This explains a lot.

Matsuno: the great Japanese hope?

Miyamoto and Kojima's shticks are both getting long in the tooth.

Thanks for the summary.

my *final* fantasy would be Matsuno san to make another mainline FF game......but according to the summary, it will be most unlikely to happen...... :(

Really keen to see what is on the horizon for him. I think it would be great to see a small scale development from someone who is so intensely purposeful when it comes to the creation of worlds, characters, and their scenarios. The next most important thing is to consider how it would be played; he tends to try and push the envelope of genres, even if it is subtle.

As far as a sequel... well, at least Tactics Ogre PSP outside Third Birthday in US!

not saying much, when both were that bad :(

Matsuno should go indy. No suits telling him what to do. Then he'd create the minecraft of jrpg.

FF12 is the only JRPG I that could hold my intrigue long enough to play more than 50% of and eventually finish. DarkCloud 2 comes in an extreme distant 2nd.

I hope you mean bad in terms of sales, or I'm going to have to nuke you from orbit.

I keep having this hope/thought that he'll use the TO remake as training for a financial and planning blueprint for further masterpieces blending all sorts of shit we cannot begin to fathom until he reveals it. Just a little dream...

I know, really. Kept saying "They put Matsuno on a title and expected different?" Haters gotta etc etc.

What we know about his next project so far is:
-It is a small project. Maybe he won't be directing, maybe just writing the script( also maybe he contributes to Anarchy Reigns's story mode)
-The tone will be lighter: unfortunately he is quite bore of dark & dramatic war setting for now.
-It won't be presented in this E3, sadly. :/
