On the occasion of the Japanese anniversary of Final Fantasy VII and the program broadcast over the weekend, director and producer Yoshinori Kitase, and creative director Tetsuya Nomura, have discussed what fans can expect from Final Fantasy and this RPG in particular.
“This is the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII and it is also the 35th anniversary of the saga Final Fantasysays Kitase. “Personally I’ve always thought of Final Fantasy VII as a recent game, but now it has become one of the ‘early’ ones”, that is, it appeared in the first half of its history. “Even so, we were honored to see that it was the third most popular game according to a survey Japanese television.” Kitase points out that the game has been resurrected again with Final Fantasy VII Remake Y Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier “Y you can expect even more developments in the future“.

Tetsuya Nomura also talks about new
Nomura appreciates the support of the fans during this quarter of a century and also hints that we will know more games soon outside of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier Y Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis. “With these exciting projects I have the feeling that more and more people support Final Fantasy VII. Not only fans of the original, but also those who never experienced it are drawn to the unique world of Final Fantasy VII“.
“And there will be more projects of Final Fantasy VII that started after the remake that will arrive in the future. The team sees this 25th anniversary as a guide in our journey with Final Fantasy VII Y we will continue to move forward with even greater things“.
These projects could encompass more than games. For example, in 2005 they premiered Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, a film with computer generated graphics and anime Last Order: Final Fantasy VII, among other products.
