Tetsuya Nomura has shared some details on the development status of Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine.

Speaking of Kingdom Hearts III development status, Nomura-san said that there are worlds that still remain untouched. The studio has advanced on the production of yet-to-be-announced worlds, but there is still a ways to go.

Nomura-san Shares Details on Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake

The production process is different than what we’ve had up until now, so I can’t just give you a general idea, but I can say that there are worlds that still remain untouched. We’ve advanced on the production of worlds that have yet to be announced, so we can’t show them for now. As far as development status goes, there’s still a ways to go.

Speaking of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Nomura-san said that the production is going steady, but fans of both FFVII Remake and KHIII will have to wait a little longer than expected. He also promised to show the game’s progress this year:

We didn’t share much information on either of the two titles last year, but I hope to show its progress at some event this year. The release of these titles will still be a while. However, we have many titles releasing this year, and we hope you look forward to any ‘surprises’.

Finally, when asked whether fans will see a bundle with content from Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 HD Remix + Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, Nomura said:

The timing doesn’t work out for us this time around, so we won’t release anything like a complete pack, but we’ve prepared a box that allows you to put in both software, something you often see with DVDs and such. It’ll likely be an e-Store bonus.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is planned to release exclusively on the Playstation 4. Kingdom Hearts III, on the other hand, is scheduled to release on both Xbox One and Playstation 4.
