E3 2018 news: Final Fantasy VII Remake progress


With E3 2018 concluding, we got to see some amazing video games. Companies like Square Enix revealed some exciting new games like Kingdom Hearts III, an Xbox One version of NieR: Automata, and a Switch version of The World Ends With You: Final Remix. However, Square did not show any videos or news of the planned video game Final Fantasy VII Remake. However! According to the game director Tetsuya Nomura, who is also directing Kingdom Hearts III, made a comment on Final Fantasy VII Remake. In his own words, he said that the work in Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III is “parallel”. If he is not busy with Kingdom Hearts III, he is working on Final Fantasy VII Remake. Here is what he is said:

“It’s not just in the early concept stages. We are actually in development. So right now, I’ve been putting 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and 100 percent into Final Fantasy 7 and 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and going back and forth.”

He also commented that he is putting a lot of work into FFVII Remake and he is content with overtime hours.

“I don’t get fatigued by that at all.” It’s really fun for me to do. I actually don’t like human relationships more than just work, so I just want to focus on work and creating things if I don’t have to deal with human relationships. It’s actually a little bit easier for me to do than not working.”

“I do need fans to play my games, to be able to create it, and so fans are definitely a factor to motivate me to keep on going.”

What do you think about this news?

  1. I’m glad that development has started, but I do feel like we probably won’t be hearing much about it for quite a long while regardless. I’d be pleasantly surprised if it is ready for Christmas 2019

  2. Come on… I don’t really think the development is in dire stages as so many rumors proclaim, but there’s no reason not to give us a couple of teaser images here and there. (And that one of Air Buster doesn’t count.) Remake versions of Cloud and Barrett have already had figures of them made, and we can’t get one lousy image of Tifa?!

    • I was kind of hoping to get something from E3. I wish we got some screentime with Tifa or Sephiroth. It has been years since we had that one teaser video.
