Some new news has been talked about Final Fantasy 7 Remake in terms of how the voice overs will be handled and more.
The latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation (via Gematsu) had a chance to interview both Tetsuya Nomura and Yoshinori Kitase who is the director and producer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake respectively.
In terms of voice overs, Nomura confirmed that the game will be fully voiced. However, they have yet to decide on the voices for the characters that weren’t in the Advent Children animated movie.
The magazine then asked Kitase if the game will be open world. Kitase sadly said: “We can’t say anything yet, but we don’t plan on fussing about whether it’s a so-called open-world or sandbox“. He then went on to say that Nomura is “more focused on the creation of the scenery“.
Thankfully, they said they want to add as many mini-games into the full game as possible. Nomura then explained that they have new technology in their hands and it might not be too necessary to add all the mini-games seen in the original game.
Development for Final Fantasy 7 Remake is still in early development explained Kitase. As for a 2017 release date for the game, Kitase laughed and didn’t want to say anything. Nomura said he’s waiting for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 and World of Final Fantasy in 2016 first before giving more information on a release date.
