Hajime Tabata

The conventions of The Legend of Zelda series have been re-imagined on numerous occasions in recent times, so how does a new game starring Link and drawing design elements from the latest Final Fantasy game sound?

To celebrate the 600th issue of Japanese publication Dengeki PlayStation earlier this month, the magazine spoke with a number of prominent developers including Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV Director, Hajime Tabata.

When asked a question about which company’s title he would like to work on as a member of their staff, Tabata referenced one of Nintendo’s most famous franchises:

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.

Despite the casual nature of these comments, how would you feel about the director of the latest Final Fantasy entry being part of the development process of a future Zelda title?

Also tell us in the comments if you would like to see Nintendo invite more developers to work with its key franchises, or if you would prefer it sticks to a more traditional development process.
