The developer who is known as the father of the popular franchise absolutely loves Final Fantasy XIV, and has been very active in the game since he joined in late 2021.

Today he mentioned that he joined Square, the free company. For those unfamiliar, a free company is Final Fantasy XIV’s version of a guild.

Of course, he announced the event on Twitter, mentioning that “Finally, the time to belong to SQUARE has come again.”

… and this story basically writes itself.

I guess this is the closest we’re getting to Sakaguchi-san going back to his roots, as he now leads his own company, Mistwalker Corporation, which has recently released the successful JRPG Fantasian.

In the meanwhile, looking at Sakaguchi-san’s publicly available profile as a Final Fantasy XIV player, you can’t not respect his dedication.

In just a few months on the game, he has leveled eight different jobs to the cap at level 90, plus all the crafting and gathering classes.

In comparison, I feel ashamed of my own progress as someone who started on day one of 1.0 and never stopped playing.

Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PlayStation 4, PS5, and PC. The Endwalker expansion has been released a few months ago and you can read our recent review.

You can also read more about the changes planned for the longer term, including a refresh of the graphics.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
