The development of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 has now picked up speed. According to the developers, full production has started and they want to ship the title as soon as possible.
After Square Enix had great success with the first part of Final Fantasy 7 VII Remake, the company is now fully dedicated to the second part. According to the manufacturer Yoshinori Kitase, the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 went into full development.
The news comes from Twitter user aitaikimochi, who in turn reports on an employee interview published by Famitsu earlier this week. The interview was conducted with several important members of the development team, including Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, and also the producer Yoshinori Kitase.
“We know that everyone wants the next installment quickly,” said Nomura. “We would also like to deliver it as soon as possible. Since we were also able to see the line of quality from the first installment, we hope to make the next installment even better in quality that can make for an even better experience. We would like to get it out as soon as possible, so please wait for it. I think we can clearly convey the direction when we officially announce the next installment.”
“The new story of Final Fantasy VII has only just begun,” added the producer Yoshinori Kitase.
Further snippets from the Famitsu interview contain information on various details of the first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake. This includes the fact that the Madame M massage scene was not allowed to continue because it would have affected the game’s age rating.
Final Fantasy VII Remake was released in April this year for the PS4. More than 3.5 million copies were quickly sold. When the second part will be released is still not yet known. Earlier this month, it was announced that development had been affected by the coronavirus, but the effects are not overly massive.
