Final Fantasy Trivia

Hironobu Sakaguchi, who developed the first Final Fantasy series in 1987 told a conference hosted by Kyoto's Ritsumeikan University on the globalization of Japanese-produced games, said that they originally thought of Fighting Fantasy as title for the game because wanted a name that could be abbreviated using the Roman alphabet easily.

They were also wanted a title that could easily be condensed into a four-syllable abbreviation in Japanese. FF is pronounced as "efu efu" in Japanese, reported Rocket News 24.

However, they later found out that Fighting Fantasy was already used by a board games based on a British gamebook series. So Sakaguchi said he and his team decided to drop the "Fighting" and replaced it with "Final" thus born the Final Fantasy series.
