Final Fantasy VII news is coming next month, according to Remake director

Final Fantasy VII Remake news

More on the horizon for Cloud and pals?

We could be hearing more about Square Enix’s plans for Final Fantasy VII fairly soon. Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura says that some FFVII news is in store for next month.

During a Japanese-language livestream about battle royale Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, Nomura said news is on the way regarding the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII for June, next month. (Translation via VGC and @aitaikimochi on Twitter.)

The comment doesn’t seem to have any more specifics, in terms of what this means related to Final Fantasy VII. Hopes would be high that this signals some news about Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, but there could also be other projects in the works.

Change your fate

The first installment of Final Fantasy VII Remake landed in 2020, after a long wait for its eventual drop. And the interstitial update Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade landed a year later, adding some extra Yuffie content to the fold.

Wherever Part 2 of Final Fantasy VII Remake is, chances are good it’s still in the works. Some confirmation of what’s coming though, and especially how the team plans to tackle the story after Cloud and the gang leave Midgar, would be interesting to see.

It sounds like a decent chunk of Final Fantasy XVI news is on the way. Producer Naoki Yoshida recently said a new trailer is on the way for the next big numbered installment in Final Fantasy.

With Summer Game Fest just around the corner, chances of some Final Fantasy news showing up seem high. Square Enix hasn’t announced any of its own plans as of this writing, nor has Sony or Nintendo. Xbox and Bethesda are hosting their joint showcase on June 12. Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest Live stream kicks off on June 9.
