New Final Fantasy VII Remake Details Revealed
The new fiscal year has officially arrived for Square Enix, and with it comes a few interesting changes for some of the Japanese publisher’s upcoming titles. One such change has been a minor shift in leadership for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, with a new co-director being announced for the project.
The news comes by way of the official Square Enix website, wherein it is revealed that Naoki Hamaguchi has been named as co-director alongside Tetsuya Nomura. Hamaguchi was previously working on the remake as the project lead, so as such this seems like a simple promotion. It is unknown as to what effect this may have on the Final Fantasy VII Remake if any, as Nomura reported late last year that development for the game was going “favorably,” citing a heavier marketing focus on Kingdom Hearts III as the reason why there hasn’t been any news on the upcoming Remake.
This isn’t the only major change that has come out of the Square Enix camp recently, as it was announced just yesterday that Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida had been assigned to a “next generation” project as part of the publisher’s new 3rd Development Headquarters. It is currently unknown what this project is, though my best bet is that it’s a new Final Fantasy game since development recently wrapped on Final Fantasy XV. With new leadership spearheading different projects within Square Enix, it shouldn’t be long before more news is forthcoming.
