Final Fantasy XV Director Wants to Work on Zelda

Final Fantasy XV Director Wants to Work on Zelda

Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0, among other games, has said that one franchise he'd love to work on is Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda.

In celebration of its 600th issue, Dengeki PlayStation spoke with a number of famed game designers. Among them was Tabata, who, when asked what franchise he'd like to work on, offered this response:

The Legend of Zelda series. I’m not quite sure why myself, but a Zelda game made with the technology and know-how of Final Fantasy XV is the game I wish to create as of this moment.

This is just Tabata talking about a dream scenario, and is far from an indication that any such game should be expected. At the same time, it's not outside the realms of possibility; Square Enix has a long history with Nintendo, and has developed games based on Nintendo properties in the past, like Super Mario RPG, Mario Slam Basketball, and Mario Sports Mix.

It was in the same issue of Dengeki PlayStation that Koei Tecmo's Hisashi Koinuma revealed a desire to make a Star Wars-based Dynasty Warriors spinoff.

That would be pretty cool. But I think Nintendo might not like the style? I see them wanting to keep it cartoony as a standardized theme across all their main franchises, like they always have and continue to do.
Just create a clone and put it on all platforms lol

This would go down a treat. Final Fantasy IX style would be more fitting.

A full on party based FF in the Zelda world would actually be pretty cool.
