Isn’t Square Enix trying to do way too much…?
On October 30, there was a closed-door event for The World Ends with You: Final Remix, a Switch game. Tetsuya Nomura, the game’s producer (who’s also the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake), told a few details about the game that we haven’t seen in years: „Right now I’m concentrating on Kingdom Hearts III, but when that’s finished, VII will be where I head next. I’m thinking about ideas regarding the remake’s release—I even spoke to producer Kitase about it today. All of us old-timers are considering various developments in regards to what accompanies the remake. Like if we can manage to do something about the Compilation [of Final Fantasy VII] titles too. But for the time being, please wait for VII‘s turn to come.”
The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII includes the following games (and a few more): Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII (mobile), Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (film), Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (PS2), Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (PSP) – but frankly, shouldn’t it be a better idea to concentrate on Final Fantasy VII Remake that was announced at E3 2015 with no release date? It’s already confirmed to be episodic, and it might slide over to the next PlayStation and Xbox at this rate…
