IGN interview with FFX-2 team back in 2003.

------------------------
IGN: For our readers not familiar with your previous experience, what are some of the projects that you and your team worked on prior to Final Fantasy X-2? And what was your involvement with the original game?

Yoshinori Kitase: I was the Producer for Final Fantasy X. My past credits include Project Planning on Final Fantasy V, and VI and Director for Final Fantasy VII and VIII.

------------------------

If Kitase was the major of two Directors he would have said so but instead he says he had the same role as he did in FFV. He only really became Director with FFVII, before that he didn't really have a Director role. It's just like the credits in FFXII. Both Itou and Minagawa are credited as Director but Itou had far more authority over the project than Minagawa did.

Again, the credits in a SQEX game are not an accurate portrayal of the games development. Fail.

Itou spearheaded the project and not Kitase.

So very true, I still don't know who the heck wrote the story for this game. One can only speculate.

I think Kitase worked on the story but so did a lot of other people. For example, the characters Sabin and Edgar were designed and write by Soraya Saga a while Shadow and Setzer were designed and written by Tetsuya Nomura. I think the story of FFVI worked so well as there was no individual writer and instead loads of different people through their ideas in one game.

I posted the wrong page in my OP. Here's the correct one:

Source: http://uk.ps2.ign.com/articles/442/442025p1.html

Also to note, in the URL in the OP Kitase says that he was indeed the Director of VI but says that Takashi Tokita was the Director of FFIV in the previous sentence but everyone knows that Sakaguchi directed FFIV and Tokita was just the scenario writer. FFI through to FFV were directed by Sakaguchi and only FFVI onwards were when he decided to take a Producer role. Sakaguchi said the **** himself.

As I stated in the FF6a board...

Your statement here says absolutely nothing about Itou. It says what Kitase himself did; you can't just go "Kitase says this" and then conclude someone else did something, especially when your own statement says "In game claims things wrong!"

And...I don't think the game is wrong about it so much as the roles mean different things than what people expect them to.

For example, Nomura is called the "Creative Director" or whatever for Dissidia, when he himself stated that he didn't do much when creating Dissidia, mostly just did the art and did primarily hands off approach, letting newer members of Square-enix work on it (so Arakawa was really spearheading everything.)

So...yeah, I don't see what this says about Itou; it just states what Kitase himself merely did, but says nothing about anyone else.

Oh yeah, apparently FF6a states that Itou was merely the "Supervisor"

That could mean a lot of things. Again, you're jumping to a conclusion based on one man's line that says nothing about anyone else's. Its a fallacious means to come to a conclusion, IOWs.

Yep : http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=554041&topic=52751638

What I would like to know is who wrote each character, it adds a little something else. It is said that we leave a little part of ourselves in what we create, that's why I find all this stuff interesting.

And? The Advance version also list Kitase as Supervisor, no director listed. I think the reason is because it is a port, the credits change.
