The last we saw of Cloud and the gang was in Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade, which introduced Yuffie back in 2021. Of course, Final Fantasy 7: Remake did not cover the full breadth of the original game’s content. Far from it in fact, with a part 2 eagerly awaited by fans around the world.
Last July, in a new interview with IGN, while talking about the launch of Intergrade and Episode Intermission, co-director Naoki Hamaguchi spoke about what Final Fantasy VII fans can expect from part two:
“…Because the next installment will involve Cloud and company to leave Midgar and explore the world map,” Hamaguchi said, “our next challenge will be to create gameplay that leverages the vastness of the world, unlike what we did in this current title.”
We haven’t heard much since, and Nomura’s comments today (May 18) don’t hint at what could be in store for the 25th anniversary next month. We’ll have to wait and see whether there will be anything on the next chapter of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
In our 4.5/5 star review of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, we called it “a brave new lens on a stone-cold classic.”
In other gaming news, Developer Bloober Team says it can’t comment on the ongoing rumours that it’s working on a new Silent Hill game, instead saying the studio’s future projects will be revealed soon.
