with financial help from Microsoft. Microsoft's involvement extended from the hope that Sakaguchi's reputation attached to Xbox 360 RPGs such as Blue Dragon
and Lost Odyssey
would help drive sales in Japan, a region in which the Xbox brand has struggled since the first Xbox.

, but was cancelled in late 2008. The company has also been behind games on other platforms, including ASH: Archaic Sealed Heat
and Blue Dragon Plus
