Tetsuya Nomura, one of the geniuses of JRPGs at Square Enix, has revealed new Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts 3 details in a Famitsu interview.
While they weren’t very big reveals, the fact that we got any is something to be celebrated, especially with two highly-anticipated games that will be coming out hopefully soon.
Several months ago Final Fantasy 7’s remake came into some controversy when details came out that development on the game hadn’t even started yet. However, Nomura’s interview implies otherwise, thankfully.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is apparently also being worked on, which is another good thing, considering it’s one of Square Enix’s most popular series aside from Final Fantasy.
According to the new Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts details, Final Fantasy 7 has gone through a substantial amount of modernizing.
Now instead of random encounters, it seems like we may be dealing with a Final Fantasy 15 sort-of aspect. Nomura also teased character switching between characters like Cloud and Barrett, along with stealth and destructible environments.
Final Fantasy is big right now with the success of Final Fantasy 15, so hopefully when the Final Fantasy 7 remake comes out it’s just as good as the original game was.
However, we now come to the second part of the new Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts 3 details. With Kingdom Hearts now getting closer and closer with the release of Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, there isn’t much time left.
In recent Kingdom Hearts 3 screenshots, we were shown what Nomura says is a mid-level boss fight in Thebes, in Hercules’s world.
Nomura has said that the Keyblade will also transform between offense and defense, but said nothing about the “Link” command that’s present in the combat UI.
Either way, with these new Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts 3 details, hopefully neither game is very much farther away for us to get our hands on.
