Original Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi shared multiple updates on Twitter over the past two weeks about Final Fantasy 16.

Hironobu Sakaguchi is the father of the iconic JRPG series, though as most fans know, he hasn’t really been involved in the series for two decades now, with the last game he is credited on being Final Fantasy X-2.

Though Sakaguchi has become a notable figure in Final Fantasy 14, especially as he started his own fashion line within the game called SakaGUCCI. Plus, he has also appeared in FF14 streams with Naoki Yoshida (aka Yoshi-P)

While Sakaguchi still regularly shares updates on his FF14 adventures on Twitter, his regular tweets have been supplanted starting June 22 as he shared that he has finally gotten a PS5. Specifically, he got the Final Fantasy 16 bundle.

In the following days, Sakaguchi shared his progress in the game, including screenshots of some of the game’s bosses such as the iconic Marlboro (or the Morbol as it’s called in the game).

While his comments are short, it seems that he’s enjoying the game as he’s progressing at a nice pace. Plus, he tweeted something quite spoiler-y that he called a nice moment.

Funnily enough, while he has shared a lot of screenshots already, Sakaguchi isn’t only playing FF16. That’s because, over the past week, he has still shared several FF14 posts. Not surprising given how much he loves the game.

Once Sakaguchi finishes Final Fantasy 16, it’ll be interesting to see what his thoughts are overall, especially considering that the game is a huge departure from the other titles in the series combat-wise. Hopefully, he appears in another livestream with Yoshi-P to discuss the game.

Final Fantasy 16 is out now exclusively on the PS5.
