Nomura admits Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced too early


Tetsuya Nomura, director of Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, has admitted that the much-anticipated game was announced too early. 

In an interview with Italian website, mainly centred on Nomura’s other ongoing project, Kingdom Hearts III, the legendary developer said: “I am aware of the fact that we announced it very soon, but in the industry, word was already beginning to get around that we were working on the game, so we decided not to keep it secret and officially reveal it.” 

The remake of the 1997 game for the original PlayStation which, for many, remains the finest ever iteration of the JRPG franchise, was a notable no-show at this year’ E3 Show, leaving fans inevitably disappointed. So far, all we know about the game is contained in the trailer below, which first appeared at E3 2015. 

Final Fantasy VII Remake certainly won’t be coming out this year – and there have to be doubts about whether it will arrive in 2019. But if any more news does emerge about the game, we’ll bring it to you post-haste.
