Nomura-san is a very important individual when it comes to the Japanese gaming industry and is a pivotal part of Square Enix. Some would argue that Nomura is the only person at Square Enix who understands how Final Fantasy works and what appeals to the players. After the unsatisfactory Final Fantasy XIII and the reveal of Versus XIII (i.e: Final Fantasy XV), this point has been reinforced many times. Quite frankly, Final Fantasy, to many, is a sinking ship. Tetsuya Nomura is currently Poseidon and has it within his hands to either let the ship sink or raise it above the waters.
