E3 2018 news: Final Fantasy VII Remake progress

IGN

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.”

To those who are under a rock, I got some excited news to share and it’s good news about Kingdom Hearts III. Since we are a couple of weeks away for E3, Square Enix hosted a special event where players can try out a demo of Kingdom Hearts III. Some of these players are fans such as anime English Voice actress Erika Harlacher got to experience Kingdom Hearts III. As of now, the news I found is just tidbits. Square Enix has not uploaded a trailer or anything on the Kingdom Hearts website. The stuff I found is from Twitter, IGN and GameSpot.

According to gameplays and screenshots, we got another Disney character joining Sora’s adventure, Video game character Wreck-It Ralph will be in Kingdom Hearts III and helping Sora; however, Ralph will be a summon character where Sora can call him and use him to fight.

Also revealed in the game is Sora’s new Keyblade abilities and fight style. Based on the pictures and videos, Sora can use different fight depending on what he uses. For example, using the keyblade based on Monster’s Inc. will allow Sora to transform his weapon into yo-yos and either use laser attacks or trap his enemies.

Shown in another gameplay, Sora can also use his environment for combat such as running on the walls similar to flowmation. Sora’s other attacks involves him using Disneyland’s live attraction rides as attacks which can help him fight bosses and enemies.

As a funny Easter Egg and tribute to Final Fantasy, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT makes a surprise visit in the world of Toy Story. Even the character Rex makes a comment about playing video games and referring back to Final Fantasy.

Unfortunately, we still don’t know the release date, but according to game director Nomura, he mentioned that the announcement of the release date should be coming probably in next month. My guess is that we will find out at E3 2018.

What do you think about this game? Kingdom Hearts III is coming out this year for PS4 and Xbox One.
