This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine features an interview with Final Fantasy VII staff on the topic of the game’s 15th anniversary.
Tetsuya Nomura, who handled character design as well as certain gameplay design decisions for the game, weighed in on the ever-hot subject of a FFVII remake.
While he admits there has been a great amount of fan demand for such a thing to happen, Nomura explains that Square Enix at present is more concerned with the creation of all new titles. There’s intention to even make these titles come close or even surpass the level of Final Fantasy VII in terms of quality.
Nomura also considers fellow staff member Yoshinori Kitase as the true successor to the Final Fantasy series – a mantle series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has since left behind.
