After Kazushige Nojima left Square Enix there was shortage of writers at the company and there was new platforms to develop for. Because of this, Motomu Toriyama decided to assemble and train a team of six scenario writers. Thanks to his GDC 2010 presentation where he discussed this, I have discovered who four of the six are. I’ve listed the four below and some of their credits.
Worked with Toriyama on FINAL FANTASY XII: REVENANT WINGS & BLOOD of BAHAMUT. Has gone to direct & write Square Enix’s hugely successful mobile game, School Girl Strikers. A game Toriyama quite enjoys.
