Nomura: Voice recording for Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Dissidia in progress By Erren Van Duine on September 26, 2016 at 7:16 PM

Tetsuya Nomura is a busy guy. His current projects include Kingdom Hearts III, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Dissidia Final Fantasy‘s arcade version just to name a few. It’s within the context of the latter we’re given a brief update on his upcoming games.

During a special livestream detailing the latest update for Dissidia Final Fantasy, Nomura said that voice recording is now in the works for “Kingdom,” “Seven,” and “Dissidia.” While vague we can easily piece these hints into each of the games he’s confirmed to be working on. “Seven” seems the most obvious, while “Kingdom” could fit into KHIII or KH2.8 depending on how far the latter is along. As for “Dissidia,” it seems likely Nomura is referring to the arcade game’s ongoing updates rather than the mobile title Opera Omnia.

Additionally, Nomura confirmed Sora won’t be featured in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

    hype, itd be nice to see the remake at PSX, there will likely be a big showing at e3 2017 but maybe we can get a trailer this december. if they teased the world outside of midgar, that would be so epic!!

  • Jesse Smith

    Hopefully we get a PSX this December. I’m a little scared that the event hasn’t been announced yet, and it’s 3 months away.

  • Luke Watts

    Well. It’s something. Been hanging out for a word from the man himself for a while now.

    Question: Where does voice recording normally sit along the production scale? as in, what HAS to come first in order for voice recording to be ready. Can we use this info to make any assumptions as to how far through development there are?

    (speaking solely about FF7R here… don’t care about the others)

  • Nick Greeley

    Yes! PSX or at least, Jump Festa

    Can anyone translate this page from Japanese? I’d try Google Translate, but the text can’t be copied and pasted. http://www.jp.square-enix.com/DFFOO/story/


    itll happen,

  • ITALOpkg ✪ ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the most dangerous Remakes that I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

  • Jesus Christ

    I don’t care about FFVII Remakes with CLoud and his diseased skelatal arms, even worse looking than that nasty Noctis.

    Kingsdom hearts <3 Sora! Kairi! Riku!

  • Victoria Rose

    And I don’t care about Kingdom Hearts (I assumed that is what you meant because you typed Kingsdom). Anyways, I don’t care about KH3 with Sora and his bunch of kiddy friends. Characters in FFVII is way cooler than a bunch of little kids running around Disney Worlds.

  • Zach Hagler

    Why not just agree that they are both great games in their own respects. Each one is meant to be different, if they were the same they’d be no fun.

  • They are getting desperate. FFVIIR will make or break them. I pray the risk pays off and the game comes out a great product

  • Jesus Christ

    Whatever makes you happy, gurlfriend.

    You do you. I do me. K?

    Bai 🙂


    i only care about FF7 remake and FF11 Reboot i dont care about kids games like KH or FF15

  • Luke Watts

    I honestly think FF15 is the one that will make or break them. If 15 ends up a flop – FF7 will either not happen or be a complete train wreck. If 15 succeeds, I think they will have the confidence and backing to then make a great Remake of 7.

  • Jesus Christ

    “I dont care about kids games like … FF15”

    Ouuu shame you tryna start a fire? LOL

  • Luke Watts

    ‘Hey kids! want to know what it feels like to be extremely isolated, have your home city over run, and your father murdered!?’ FF15 is the game for you!
    *Not recommended for ages 5 and under – choking hazard*

  • Jesus Christ

    Question, what’s your opinion on SE’s decision to change the battle system in the remake? Are you conservative original FFVII turn-base/ATB like style or progressive?


  • Justice V

    And I care about all 3 with all the skinny-fat characters they wanna throw at me heh. Or maybe I just like Nojima stories.

  • Justice V

    Really depends on the project, director and the company. Some projects do a base voice recording right from the get go with stand in voices just to get a general idea of the flow, and wait till the end to record the actual voices. Some do the voice recording along with the mocap. Some Wait till basic assets of cutscenes are implimented. Some wait till the majority of the game assets are finished being created (not perfected just all bodily animation and most character animation etc is done). Etc. So there’s really no way to tell what stage it’s at.

  • Noctis

    Are you stupid?

  • Noctis

    more dangerous is to leave it like that, I see great potential

  • Justice V

    Nice gimme more Dissidia. Also glad Sor’s not coming. It’d be weird. At least Agito and Tactics were actually called FF games.

  • daveguitar

    In film industry voice recording is usually happening at the beginning/mid production to start doing the lip sync with them.
    Anyway it’s hard to tell with this one cause maybe they’re mid production with just 1 of the chapters it will have.

  • Luke Watts

    I don’t think so. Why do you ask

  • •december

    No news on Final Fantasy VII Remake since!
    Another game I am looking forward to!
    WHAT is going on with it !!

  • So the fact that FF VII Remake is the process of voice recording now means that it has gone far into development and there’s a small chance we’re getting it not too far today?

  • strifev1

    Wouldn’t be surprised if we got the first episode next year for the 30th anniversary of FF.


    i like the old battle system but i think its too old and cant put it in new game good they change it i hope its good not big deffrent from old one i just want the matreria system weapons armor like before and i think it will be fine 🙂 sorry for my bad english

  • Yeah. That is also true. :/

  • Yuntu

    Not really. XV recording started 2 years ago (Japanese one probably earlier). Of course 7 being split could reduce that but VO work starting doesn`t really mean that much.


    im also thinking about a release next year. i mean… when do they want to release it then if its a trilogy? Then we have already the next generation when the first part comes in 2018 and th other parts two years later..

    no im calculating also for a 2017 release for the first title.


    Its obvious.. if they showed FF7 Remake now maybe the interest in FFXV would shrink.
    First they are going to release FFXV and maybe we see new stuff from FFVII early next year.


    i suppose it would be cool to have an age limit for the comment section maybe we wouldnt read childish stuff like this then..


    moreover i think that comment was made by a kid *D

  • D.3ND

    Most likely.


    i hope it will released in 7/7/2017 😀 or demo at least ;S

  • Justice V

    Also the 20th anniversary of VII itself.

  • Why would Sora be in Dissidia? I’d love that but long ago they basically nixed any KHxFF stuff in favor for more DisneyxKH stuff. Which is a shame. In BBS all we got were Moogles and Zack. And in 3 I doubt any new FF leads will appear. Maybe a few as hidden bosses or tournament comps. But that’s it.

    If FF7 and KH3 are recording, good. We did already see that voiced scene of young Xehanort and Eraqus talking so not surprised. But don’t rush the game. Just release it late 2017 when it’s ready. Or if nothing else early 2018.
