At the upcoming Japan Expo in Paris, France, the legendary game designer Hironobu Sakaguchi will be showing off a surprise new project.

Sakaguchi left Square in 2001 and formed a new studio named Mistwalker. At Mistwalker, he's overseen the development of the excellent RPGs Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, and The Last Story.

Sakaguchi will be speaking next Wednesday at Paris Expo, which is held at the Paris-Nord Villepente Exhibition Center outside of Paris.

Our Take:
Anytime a designer as well known as Sakaguchi announces a new project, it's new. It will be interesting to see if it's a traditional console project or in the mobile or free-to-play markets.
