Even the Assassin’s Festival crossover DLC for Final Fantasy XV definitely surprised many, not only due to the topic, but also because of how complicated and complicated that the cooperation was, moving as far as replicating relevant gameplay mechanics of this Assassin’s Creed franchise.
We requested Director Hajime Tabata whether there are any plans for all these collaborations in the foreseeable future, because the recipe appears to be as succulent as Ignis ’ dishes.
Tabata-san clarified that Square Enix worked right with all the Assassin’s Creed development group as part of a close alliance to deliver the material to life. The mutual respect the two development teams needed for each other permitted this level of cooperation.
Square Enix hoped for the two Final Fantasy and Assassin’s Creed fans to relish the content, and Tabata-san considers that this goal was attained. Even though there’s not anything else aimed at the moment in terms of different collaborations or crossovers, should another chance like this seemed that could be advantageous for both sides, it’s “definitely into.
Tabata-san also shared that the trailer had been revealed in a fan event at Ubisoft’s at Gamescom, initially the Assassin’s Creed supporters were surprised and they weren’t realizing what was happening, then they responded enthusiastically, and there were several Final Fantasy XV lovers there as well, so that he believes that both fan bases overlap at least partially.
So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth. If you’re a developer and would like to cross your game over using Final Fantasy XV, the doorway isn’t shut. Give a call to Square Enix.
