In January 2010 we learned that Hironobu Sakaguchi, who created Final Fantasy and had a hand in several other landmark Square titles, was working on an iPhone project while also creating what would eventually be The Last Story for Wii. Since then there hasn’t been much info on exactly what was going on with this intriguing mobile project.

When questioned over Twitter for information regarding what he was currently working on, Sakaguchi answered that he had “around 3 titles” in the works for iOS, according to Andriasang.

Sakaguchi hasn’t offered any further details or clarification on what he means by multiple titles. In this age, it isn’t hard to imagine him talking about some sort of episodic content, or 3 sort of bit-sized kind of experiences scaled for on-the-go play.

Andriasang notes that Sakaguchi is currently traveling Europe promoting the release of The Last Story in that region and returns to Japan on March 1st, when perhaps we can find out more about these mysterious iOS projects.

    well, it's a good news to have such an awesome developer on board to the iOS development community... but I just hope his games won't be over priced like the rest of the iOS titles by other large Japanese company (e.g. SE)..

      They're still dragging their feet on the FFT for iPad thing.

      Wait, back up. iOS games are overpriced? No... they're about 2-5 bucks apiece. Cheap as hell.

      Square Games are overpriced? Maybe, but... it's Square... they've made some of the best RPGs in the last 20 years. If/when they do FF6 for iPhone, you can bet they're gonna charge for it.. and people will still buy it.

      I'll give you a hint: if Square charges 20 bucks for Chrono Trigger and you still buy it, it's NOT overpriced.

      If Square charges 30 bucks for CT and you grab the ROM online, yea, it's overpriced.

    Eurogamer did an interview with him and The Gooch states he is in fact making three iOS games. The first is a surfing game called Party Wave.
