Hironobu Sakaguchi has a conference scheduled for July 2nd at the Japan Expo in Paris. In the conference description it says...

He will also present his latest project, which is kept secret for the time being

So that's something to look out for if you care about what he's up to next. His latest game was The Last Story with Mistwalker and I'm not sure if this next project will also be handled by the same company. Either way, I wonder if this'll just be some concept art or if he'll show something solid.

Also Persona 5 news in July you heard it here first

Update: "Terra Battle" has been trademarked by Mistwalker, so it's likely this project that Sakaguchi will be talking about.

His next project: Final Fantasy 2. BE THERE.

Huh. I honestly thought Mistwalker went out of business for some reason. I played both of their console games (Blue Dragon & Lost Odyssey) and thought they were both okay with a decent helping of flaws, but I also thought they didn't sell well at all. I'm still interested to hear what they've got going on next, let's do this!

Neat. I really liked Lost Odyssey, even if his other Mistwalker stuff wasn't as good as I'd hoped. He should do a 3DS game.

I would love it if one of the Japanese games MS has been hinting at ends up being a sequel to Lost Odyssey.

Any idea on platform? Either way I'm excited. Need more RPG's please.

@brendan: They also did the Wii RPG The Last Story which was most critics say was their best game.

As long as it's on either the Wii U, PS3, or 3DS, then I'm covered.

Please be something good!

Mistwalker has trademarked "Terra Battle", so I'm guessing that's the project he'll be talking about at the conference. I'll try to update the thread once there's more info.

Except for me. Lost Odyssey was so much better.

Mistwalker's still around? And they made The Last Story? Huh. I should have known that.

The Last Story was interesting and Lost Odyssey was really well designed (I especially loved the short stories, I'd love if they would capitalize on those) it's nice to see what he will do now.

Maybe he's finally making THE Final Fantasy.

It's a free to play mobile game according to Famitsu.

If f2p mobile games didn't collectively have such an incredibly shitty track record, I would be at least somewhat excited right now.

I remember really hoping Mistwalker was going to be able to compete with Square for RPG dominance. And then... well... boy, did I feel like a horse's patoot.

It's actually a prequel: The Second to Last Story.
