Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is playing FF 6 on SNES Classic with Kazuko Shibuya (Square’s primary pixel artist in the Famicom/Super Famicom years) on youtube right now.
How cool is that? :)
Now if only I understood Japanese :P

This is pretty cool. Thanks for sharing. Loving this 16bit nostalgia due to the SNES/SFC classic. I understand them faintly. Japanese is very rusty though.

They have disabled rewinding on the stream. How odd. Also he doesn't seem to be playing himself. :P

What was his role in Chrono Trigger? Did he have a role in that game even?

I feel like I should know given that it's one of my favourite games ever but I have little nostalgia/appreciation for most of the other Squaresoft classics so I'm not as familiar with these peoples' works as I should be.

I'm doing the same as him currently with regards to FF 6 on the SNES Classic though :)

What a strange place in history we live in. Original creator able to be viewed playing live over the internet on a tiny toy console that sold out instantly weeks ago.

What year is it?

Lol I just noticed that the Snes Classic Mini has an animated background in the main menu, and the Switch still just has static black and white.

They did one of these streams for FF3 when the FC Mini came out as well, but I don't know if it's archived anywhere.

YouTube has an ultra low latency setting that removes rewinding as a setback

He did say that he wanted to make another pixel/2D RPG again. This was a few years ago though. Maybe playing VI will get him motivated

I'd like a CT where they have tons more animation frames given to 2D characters, detailed 2D environments out the wazoo and a huge world to explore. Basically an ultra-facelift to CT. It shouldn't be illegal to make CT2 like this...

Just give my my nostalgiaaaaaa

Thanks! And thanks to you two people above too. That's all the versions of 'to' lol.

Yeah it's amazing how much talent worked on that game, no wonder it turned out as great as it did.
