The scene that made Toriyama want to join Square

At an event for the 25th anniversary of the FINAL FANTASY series, Motomu Toriyama revealed the scene that made him want to join Square. You can read it below translated by goldpanner.

FFVI Opening
Was deeply moved by the scene with the Magitek Armour walking into the clouds; that was the scene that made him want to join Square Enix and work on Final Fantasy.

Also at this event, Isamu Kamikokuryo revealed his favourite FINAL FANTASY scene. Goldpanner has also translated it.

The scene in FFX where Tidus is floating off the shore of Besaid Island
FFX was the first FF title that Kamikokuryo was involved in, and watching from aside as that scene got closer and closer to completion encouraged him to get through his own work. Watching that scene brings back those very first feelings, even now, etc. By the way, this scene was Toriyama’s work.

Lastly, Toriyama also revealed his favourite job in a FINAL FANTASY game. Thanks again to goldpanner.

Onion Knight
Wavered between Freelancer and Onion Knight. It’s a weak job class to start with, but perhaps that tickles his motherly instincts.
