Creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Posted February 4, 2015 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

With GDC (Game Developers Conference) right around the corner, there have been some announcements already made. It’s been announced that Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series, will be given a lifetime achievement award at the 15th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards. The awards will take place on March 4th at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.  Hironobu Sakaguchi got his start as the director of planning and development for what was formally Square Company, Ltd., now Square Enix. There under that title is where he developed what has become one of the biggest and most well-known RPG franchises ever, Final Fantasy. He also founded the development house Mistwalker back in 2004, which created the games Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Terra Battle, and The Last Story.

GDC events general manager Meggan Scavio made the following statement about Sakaguchi receiving the award:

“Final Fantasy helped pave the way for game stories that dealt with death, regret and character development in a mature and significant way, and we’re proud to honor Sakaguchi-san as a true leader in the space, and an inspired game developer.”

You will be able to watch the awards on various live streams on March 4th. The awards will be hosted by Double Fine’s very own Tim Schafer.
