Trivia / Shadow Hearts

  • Executive Meddling: Hiroki Kikuta, director of Koudelka, wanted to make the game much more Survival Horror in nature; the rest of Sacnoth (ex-Square employees) wanted to make something closer to Final Fantasy. The resulting game was an unhappy compromise between the two clashing gameplay styles.
  • What Could Have Been: Early footage shows Nicolai as the main character of Covenant, but Yuri would still be alive.
