Taro Yoko at Square Enix’s 2015 E3 press conference.

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.
