Final Fantasy XV is not the only New Year’s Resolution that Square Enix has in front of it for 2016. It has another massive project in the works which is sure to be picked apart and speculated upon by fans around the globe: the Final Fantasy VII Remake.
However, those looking to play the game in 2016 will have to wait a bit longer. Producer Yoshinori Kitase has stated in the latest issue of Famitsu that the game has “a year of preparations” ahead of it.
“I believe that this year will still be a year of preparations for Final Fantasy VII Remake. I’d like to create a new kind of value for the hardware that is the PlayStation 4 for our next announcement.”
So, no. Not even the towering powers of the PlayStation 4 are efficient enough to handle such an extreme project. Square Enix needs to push and advance it further over the next year in order to get development anywhere.
Also in the segment, Final Fantasy boss Shinji Hashimoto claimed that he wants to do more big surprises for fans over the coming year. The reveal of Final Fantasy VII Remake is already one of the biggest surprises of all time, so we’ll have to wait an see what the company can do to live up to expectations.
I mean, what’s comparable to a Final Fantasy VII Remake? I don’t think there can be any other surprises ever again, unless Square Enix decides to tackle Final Fantasy VI in the same fashion as well.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will be “released first” on PlayStation 4.
