Nomura: New Titles Before FFVII Remake

Square Enix RPG News

This year, Final Fantasy VII will celebrate its 15th anniversary. Famitsu is running a feature on the game which includes an interview with Square Enix heavyweight Tetsuya Nomura, who was the character designer for the game. In his interview, Nomura has revealed that there is a desire to remake the adventure of Cloud and co. However, as of right now, new titles are the priority. He also hopes that these new games will either equate to or top Final Fantasy VII. Nomura also revealed that Yufie was a wanted person early in development, with posters hung around Midgar, the last one being Yufie.

Outside of Final Fantasy VII, Nomura believes that Yoshinori Kitase, another Square Enix employee, will be the true successor to the Final Fantasy series. Kitase has been a producer in the main series since Final Fantasy X, handpicked by Hironobu Sakaguchi, the father of the Final Fantasy series. Before that, Kitase has worked as a director in the  main series, including Final Fantasy VII.

Is Nomura right in putting new games as a priority over a Final Fantasy VII remake? Feel free to express your opinions in the comment section below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
