Good news everyone! It seems that development of the second part of Final Fantasy VII Remake is in full production. Famitsu has been keeping up with the dev team of Square Enix’s retelling of their beloved title. According to the blog of Ryokuta2089, there some features that were left out of Part One’s final act as well as some info on what is to come in the second part. Twitter user @aitaikimochi provided translation of an excerpt from an interview with director Tetsuya Nomura who commented of FF7R – Pt.2’s development:
“We know that everyone wants the next installment quickly. We would also like to deliver it as soon as possible. Since we were also able to see the line of quality from the first installment, we hope to make the next installment even better in quality that can make for an even better experience. We would like to get it out as soon as possible, so please wait for it. I think we can clearly convey the direction when we officially announce the next installment.”Tetsuya Nomura, director (Famitsu interview)
