Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake was one of the biggest no-shows at E3 2018, and it may still be a long ways off from release. But Tetsuya Nomura today gave fans a sliver of hope, stating that the remake has at least moved past the conceptual stage and into full development.
Nomura told IGN during an E3 interview that Final Fantasy 7 Remake is being developed “in parallel,” to Kingdom Hearts 3, which he’s also directing. The director added that he’s putting a full effort into Final Fantasy 7 Remake – when he’s not working on Kingdom Hearts 3, that is.
“It’s not just in the early concept stages,” Nomura said of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. “We are actually in development. So right now, I’ve been putting 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and 100 percent into Final Fantasy 7 and 100 percent into Kingdom Hearts and going back and forth.”
