Tonight’s panel was a light-hearted roundtable discussion with notable figures in the Final Fantasy-verse: Hajime Tabata, Yusuke Naora, Motomu Toriyama, Isamu Kamikokuryou, Yoshihisa Hashimoto, and Mutsunori Takahashi.

Now before you start panicking — it’s a joke. But on to more serious topics: the stream had a video of the history of Square Enix Visual Works. This studio has been responsible for the wondrous and masterful CG seen in Final Fantasy since FFVII. The second video is a compilation of those feats:
Tabata-san did have a message for fans anticipating Final Fantasy Versus XIII:
“Tetsuya Nomura wanted to give the message that he’ll soon show the future of Final Fantasy.”
