President

Publisher of the “Tomb Raider,” “Dragon Quest,” and “Final Fantasy” franchises, Japanese company Square Enix releases AAA games for console, PC and mobile. With Matsuda at the helm since 2013, 2020 saw a massive highlight in “Final Fantasy VII Remake,” which released in April to critical acclaim as a rejuvenated audience of gamers new and old rushed to play the remake of what is considered by many to be the signature title in the “Final Fantasy” series and a true classic of the ’90s. The game sold over three million copies in its first few days, briefly becoming the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive before “The Last of Us Part II” released the following June and bested it. Another highlight was “Trials of Mana,” another remake of an older game that also released in April to positive reception and sales figures that exceeded the company’s expectations.
