Original Final Fantasy VII Developers Discuss Rivalry With Dragon Quest (FF News 4/26/19 to 5/3/19)

This past month Final Fantasy VI celebrated its 25th anniversary and Famitsu did a special interview with the original Squaresoft game developers. Yoshinori Kitase, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Eiji Nakamura, Kazuko Shibuya and Minoru Akao were among those interviewed for this article.

They mentioned that one of the driving forces that pushed them to make the game was the fact that they had a rivalry with Dragon Quest and wanted to beat them in terms of quality and quantity. This is something which the FF series eventually accomplished.

Apparently this desire to surpass the Dragon Quest series helped fuel the team during long days of development. Sakaguchi even recalls falling asleep on his desk chair. All of this led to the creation of one of the most acclaimed RPGs of all time. Glad to see that the original staff holds this title in high regard along with many fun memories.
