Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata gave an interview recently to Game Informer warning that the ending to Square Enix’s upcoming title is aimed at making as many as possible do one simple thing – cry.

“You’re spending so many hours playing the game, so when I finish a game and it ends on a sour note and it doesn’t move me, it gets me disappointed,” Tabata explains. “At least make me cry or give me some emotion!”

Not wanting to extend this disappointment to the fans of the series, he continues Square Enix’s rhetoric of trying to surpass the greatest entry in the franchise, Final Fantasy VII. In fact, Tabata and his team are taking to exceed the 1997’s hit title.

It is unclear exactly how far along the ending of the story is in terms of development, but Square Enix is expected to release a wealth of new details in their next Active Time Report on March 30. Until then, Final Fantasy XV has been promised to be released this year for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
