Final Fantasy 15 Director Would Like to Make a Zelda Game

"I'm not quite sure why."


In a recent issue of Dengeki PlayStation, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata was asked which gaming franchise he would like to work on. His response? Nintendo's iconic The Legend of Zelda series.

"I'm not quite sure why myself, but a Zelda game made with the technology and know-how of Final Fantasy XV is the game I wish to create as of this moment," Tabata explained, as reported by Nintendo Everything.

This is by no means any kind of official indication as to what Tabata might do next, after Final Fantasy XV ships before 2017. But it's still an interesting thing to think about.

The next Legend of Zelda game is TriForce Heroes, which launches this week for Nintendo 3DS. Looking beyond that, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U has been delayed indefinitely.

What do you think a Zelda game with Final Fantasy "technology and know-how" would look like? Let us know in the comments below.
