Final Fantasy VII Remake has been in development for quite some time and with the game development shifting to the internal setup we expect the game will come out soon. However, it has been a while since we heard anything about the game and Square Enix has revealed that don’t expect any news anytime soon.
In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu, game director Tetsuya Nomura talked about the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII remake and shed some light on the games’ development. He revealed that while the game has progressed a lot but, don’t expect news about the game anytime soon.
Although there are parts [of Final Fantasy VII Remake] further along than Kingdom Hearts III, such as cutscenes, it is unlikely we’ll share information for a while as we switch from mainly external to mainly internal development.
Also, Square-Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy VII remake will feature action based combat instead of the command based which was featured in the original game. Game director, Tetsuya Nomura, confirmed in an interview the game will feature action based combat.
Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based. Regarding cover actions, there are places where they can be done on the map, but they are not required. Because it’s seamless, I showed that there can be actions in response to various scenes.
Steve Burton has also been confirmed to voice Cloud Strife again in the remake. Steve Burton made it official through his Twitter account by confirming that he will be again voicing his Final Fantasy VII character, Cloud Strife. He also lent his voice to a character in the Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children CGI film.
Final Fantasy VII remake is an action RPG in development at Square Enix and will launch exclusively for PlayStation 4 but, no release date has been announced.
