    Who is Roberto Ferrari?

    Ferrari was born in Italy, with dreams of having a professional art career in Japan after falling in love with Japanese animation. He moved to Japan in the late 90s and ended up working at Tatsunoko Productions (an animation studio that Final Fantasy art veteran Yoshitaka Amano even worked at). He later joined Square Enix after garnering respect and interest in video game art. Here’s a translation of an interview he did for the Italian website Akiba Gamers. This goes into detail about his journey and passions while offering insights into both the industry and Ferrari as a person. 

    What Has He Done Prior to Final Fantasy VII Rebirth?

    Roberto Ferrari has been a pretty big name at Square Enix for the last decade. He contributed sub-character designs to Final Fantasy Type-0, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, and Final Fantasy XV characters. Besides his work on those FF games, he’s been playing a sizable role in the FF7 remake project. He’s responsible for many of the side character redesigns along with the gorgeous dresses in Final Fantasy VII Remake.

    What is His Role in the Creation of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth?

    Ferrari has come so far. He’s actually getting top billing next to Nomura these days!

    Ferrari has reprised his role as a character designer in Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. In Remake, he was responsible for many reimaginings of characters. It seems that he is continuing his amazing work alongside the rest of the art team and the legendary Tetsuya Nomura! I can’t wait to crack open the upcoming art books to see his amazing works in their full glory! His style is both unique and spectacular. Each one of his designs features lavish details and bursts with personality. Which is exactly what Final Fantasy is all about. His characters have a wide range, going from cool to cute or even beautiful.
