The second entry in the Final Fantasy VII Remake project has entered full development!
Famitsu conducted an interview with the development team at Square-Enix including Director Tetsuya Nomura, Co-Director Motomu Toriyama, and Producer Yoshinori Kitase.
When asked about when we can expect the next part of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Nomura had this to say:
“We know that everyone wants the next installment quickly. We would also like to deliver it as soon as possible. Since we were also able to see the line of quality from the first installment, we hope to make the next installment even better in quality that can make for an even better experience. We would like to get it out as soon as possible, so please wait for it. I think we can clearly convey the direction when we officially announce the next installment.”
The 15-Page Famitsu interview also contained some fun details on Remake Part 1.
(Minor Spoilers) Co-Director Toriyama states that they didn’t show AVALANCHE’s hideout in the Remake to show that Cloud wasn’t close with the group. He also notes that Roche was meant to appear in Chapter 14 for another battle. Toriyama says Roche has a high chance of appearing in Part 2.
To close out, here’s one last quote from Producer Yoshinori Kitase:
“The new story of Final Fantasy VII has only just begun.”
