Toco Toco TV, a series of intimate interviews with Japanese creators that we’ve been following for ages, has just released its final episode, about composer Keiichi Okabe (NieR, Drakengard 3).
Taro Yoko’s producer at Square Enix says he wants the Nier director to make a Final Fantasy. He let this brilliant idea fly during a recent interview with Wow Japan, saying he would want the game to feature a “similar strangeness” to Yoko’s other games. “I’m hoping for a big budget if I do work on it,” Yoko replied.
In the wake of Scalebound’s cancellation, Platinum Games released its hit Nier: Automata in Japan. Hideki Kamiya tweeted,“It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Platinum was rescued by Yoko [Taro].” The studio has new fans as well as an increase in top flight job applicants.
