Final Fantasy 7 Remake Main Story Voice Recording Is Almost Finished

by | @DJamesSC | on February 22, 2017

The grand reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Remake at E3 2015 after many teases helped to make Sony’s press conference that year the conference of dreams. Announced as coming in episodic form, we still have no clue when Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be ready for release, but it sounds like they have moved a big step forward in the production that may hint at a release sooner than previously thought.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase was interviewed in the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, a translation of which has been provided by Gematsu. In this interview, he made an interesting comment about the progress of the game.

“A remake of Final Fantasy VII required substantial preparedness. The voice actors have almost finished voice recording of the main story. Fans may have the image of the Cloud from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, but since this is the ‘prime’ Cloud from before Advent Children, the performance may feel fresh.”

This is fantastic news for sure, but the question is whether the voice recording is referring to just the first episode, which Kitase has stated before is like a full game, or if they are recording the full game in one go. The assumption would be that it is just the first episode, as a lot of things could change in the game later that could require changes to the voice recordings.

The other question is with the voice recording nearly complete, what is the progress on the rest of the game? With Final Fantasy 7 Remake being episodic, yet still said to be like a full game, we don’t know what to expect length wise for the most part. Voice recording is something you would think would be done later in the process, but Square Enix could have elected to do it earlier.
