Square Enix has lot of upcoming titles this year and the next. Final Fantasy 15 is releasing in September, and Kingdom Hearts 2.8 may begrudgingly appetize its fans before the third sequel rolls in. Meanwhile, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is yet to make an appearance this year. However, Square Enix?s Tetsuya Nomura said that they?ll opt for a big reveal instead of a smaller, piece-by-piece ones.
According to a translated Famitsu interview from KHInsider, Nomura was asked about the progress of the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Nomura said there will be new information revealed on the Kingdom Hearts concert this August and the Dissidia Final Fantasy Tournament next year. What information will these events reveal regarding the highly anticipated HD remake of Final Fantasy 7?
Nomura revealed that they?re opting for a large reveal instead of a ?dribs and drabs? of updates. He also teased updates on the Kingdom Hearts First Breath concerts on August 11, 27 and 28 and the Dissidia Final Fantasy Tournament on August 28. While the Kingdom Hearts event is likely to dispense news for the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 game, Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans should opt to monitor them as well for any significant announcements about the game.
In the recently concluded E3 2016, Final Fantasy 7 Remake didn?t appear on the Sony showfloor as Sony opted to show new games such as Days Gone, God of War 2016 and Death Stranding. Additionally, the Final Fantasy 15 E3 appearance was included in the Microsoft E3 show, which somehow barred Square Enix from talking about a Sony-exclusive game.
While the release date of Final Fantasy 15 has been confirmed, Kingdom Hearts 3 is still up on Square Enix?s AAA video game development plans, so the remake is not the company?s main focus at the moment. Additionally, Final Fantasy 7 Remake has been confirmed to be episodic, similar to The Walking Dead video game from Telltale Games, so fans may expect a single ?Episode 1? announcement on these upcoming events. If we?re lucky, Square Enix might announce the number of episodes they are planning to chop Final Fantasy 7 Remake into in these events.
