Square Enix forms a Final Fantasy Committee to “Ensure Series Quality”

Apparently Square Enix themselves are even worried about the quality of the Final Fantasy series moving forward, so much so that they’ve created a Final Fantasy Committee to oversee the quality of future Final Fantasy titles.

I wish I was joking, but in a report by FF-Reunion, Square Enix has formed this committee around Yoshinori Kitase, Hajime Tabata, Naoki Yoshida and Motomu Toriyama. Not many other details were given, other than their meetings being purely about ensuring the quality of future titles in the series.

One of the more prominent creators and designers in the series, Tetsuya Nomura, appears to be absent from this committee, because he’s just too busy making great looking games, like Final Fantasy XV, whenever that is finally done. Many fans are claiming that Final Fantasy XV will finally mark the series’ return to what made it so great, i.e. a world map, exploration, a great story, well thought out characters, and so on.

The irony behind this move is that most of the people involved in this committee are the very ones who fans have been claiming are responsible for making recent lackluster or just plain bad entries in the Final Fantasy series.

So what say you Final Fantasy fans, is this a good move or what?
