After a long journey, you arrive at Squeenix HQ. A young woman of Japanese descent greets you. "Konnichiwa, Hikkimori-san!" she says, bowing. "Just kidding.

You enter the room and immediately you are assaulted by business cards and bowing. Everybody is here: Hamije Tabata, Naoki Yoshida, Hajime Tabata, Motomu Toriyama, and Yoshinore Kitase. You snap pictures, get out your autograph book. "Wait," you say. "Where's Nomura-sama?"\n\nThe room is silent for a moment. Finally, Tabata clears his throat. "Perhaps we should sit down...?"\n\n[[>Sit|G]]
Toriyama mutters, "Should we make it more sci-fi or fantasy?"\n\n[[>"Let's do a straightforward fantasy game."|I1]]\n[[>"People like the science fiction elements."|I2]]\n[[>"I'm sure you have a better insight on that than I do, Toriyama-sama."|I3]]\n[[>"SEPHIROTH."|I4]]
"What do you think about the battle system!" Kitase barks. He speaks quickly, as if he's on a timer. "Should it be very difficult and intricate, or should it be easy and accessible!"\n\n[[>"Long-time fans would appreciate a complicated battle system."|H1]]\n[[>"An easier battle system would help more people learn the game."|H2]]\n[[>"Whatever you think is best, Kitase-sama."|H3]]\n[[>"SEPHIROTH."|H4]]
