Voice recording for Final Fantasy VII Remake’s main story is nearly complete By Erren Van Duine on February 22, 2017 at 6:23 AM

Japanese voice recording for Final Fantasy VII Remake is well under way and nearly complete for the (what we can only presume as) first part’s main scenario content. News comes from the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation where producer Yoshinori Kitase provided a brief update on the project.

Final Fantasy VII Remake required a great amount of preparation,” Kitase said to the magazine. “The voice actors have nearly finished recording for the main scenario. Fans might be picturing Cloud from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, but this is a Cloud in his prime from before the movie so the performance may feel fresh.”

Kitase also shared a few words on the game’s new key visual revealed last month. “The new visual presented at the Final Fantasy 30th anniversary features something that wasn’t in the original, Sephiroth (and his black wing?) – we’ll leave the meaning to everyone’s imagination.”

Final Fantasy VII: Remake is currently in development for PlayStation 4.

    I know getting hyped is wrong,

    Cuz you never know, Tabata could come again…..change everything on his personal tastes. And kill everyone off cuz he don`t like Nomuras vision and becuase he wants to make us cry eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh

  • Fay Knights

    I wonder if the english synchro for Cloud will be by the same person as in Mobius. Probably not, but it would be nice, I liked it a lot. I hope altogether that his personality will be just like in Mobius. Cloud deffinitely has grown on me since that event. I didn’t like him that much before.

  • Luke Watts

    Same voice actor. Is that what your asking?

  • Fay Knights

    Yes=)

  • Luke Watts

    Yeah it’s the same. He’s done cloud since KH1

  • Randy Marsh

    It’s been Steve Burton for nearly 15 years. KH1, KH2, FFVII:AC, CC, DC, Dissidia series, and Mobius. Also considering he did the voice for him in the trailer, it is safe to assume he will come back for the game.

  • Ulises

    Are you serious? Is Tabata even involved in this game? I think all the hate is making you lose your mind…

  • stevenm281

    GET OVER IT, stop crying.

    Will you keep on repeating this everytime Square Enix is talking about one of the game?

    You really got a sad life if that’s all you can do.

  • Randy Marsh

    At this point I think Noctis is just doing this for attention, otherwise known as trolling in the ancient Latin tongue. I highly suggest people just block him like I did and ignore him, he’ll eventually go away in due time.

  • DairyQueen_DQ

    Hope there’s Japanese voice for north america version. Sephiroth sounds so menacing with it.

  • Luke Watts

    15 was gonna be shit regardless. Move on.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    wouldnt be surprised if they said at this e3 2017, that itll come out this holiday for part 1.

  • Daniel Fernandes

    dafuq this guy is obessed with XV. it’s like those haters from XIII that talks how they hate the game in an article about Uncharted and how smoking is bad for your health :v

  • Fay Knights

    Thanks!

  • stevenm281

    I hope so!

  • Invictus

    I’m like a Hyena waiting for a scrap update about this game. So far, I’m getting tid bits of meat. lol

  • King Zeus

    15 -> Masterpiece.

  • King Zeus

    Tabada did a great job.
    Case closed.

  • Does this means we can have hope to see this game being released untill the end lf this year?

  • So no Steve Burton for Cloud. The original cast was dead on. The voices fit. And Cloud in his prime? He’s only a few years older in AC.

  • Syafiq Khaidir

    VII R not XV.

  • stevenm281

    He’s not talking about the voice but the impression, the attitude of the character, the way Cloud speaks in Advent Children is way different than the way he speaks in the game due to his character development.

  • Kchri

    you heard Steve Burton in the PSX 2015 trailer for the remake. he voiced him in AC as well as CC, Mobius, Dissidia, etc. of course they’re going to use him! Kitase: “… this is a Cloud in his prime from before the movie so the performance may feel fresh.โ€ here he is only referring to the PERFORMANCE, not the voice actor changing.

  • stevenm281

    Masterpiece with flaws, but a masterpiece nonetheless

  • Taylor Edwards

    They already said it wasn’t coming out this year.

  • Taylor Edwards

    Don’t get your hopes up people. FFVII R’s script was already mostly written before the game even started development (because it probably doesn’t deviate that much from the original). I guess they just didn’t feel like waiting until the end of development to start voice work, since the story is already mostly set in stone.

  • Dennis Gurkis Johansson

    If nomura comes even close to the quality of the XV gameplay, then combined with VII’s legendary story it could be the best game ever made. And yup XV was that much pure fun to play.

  • Invictus

    I doubt. Let’s set our hopes up for a 2018-2019 time table for this.

  • Yeah. When it’s about Square we cannnot expect much regarding to dates and releases.

  • Shinobuden

    Wouldn’t people normally not talk about things they don’t like? It’s all he talks about even on articles that have nothing to do with XV.

    Guess he has absolutely nothing better to do in his life. It’s quite sad. Still, I think it’s better not to give him the attention he wants. If people just block him he’ll stop coming around. And even if he stays…well, all people will see is “This user is blocked”.

  • Eyoi

    Yeah, that’s not happening. They said a few weeks ago that they HOPE they have a trailer or have it “playable” at an event this year.

  • where did they say that?

  • Okay, I was just wondering. I didn’t want him to change it.

  • I see that now. I thought he meant they needed a younger Cloud. Even when I replay FF7 I still picture Steve Burton’s voice most of the time.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    i agree, they never said it isnt coming this year. nomuras words were reserved but that is square enix, 2014 to 2017 seems like a decent time for a part 1 of a game . they did say they dont want to take years. so ff7remake part 1 imo will not take 5-6 years.

  • Randy Marsh

    Pretty much this. People kind of forget that Cloud in FFVII is really cocking at the start of the game and then eventually becomes the stereotypical JRPG protagonist after the events of disc two. It wasn’t until AC, with his Geostigma and his survivor’s guilt that he got the doom and gloom seriousness that is heavily associated with him today.

  • Taylor Edwards

    Nomura said it in a recent interview.

  • Taylor Edwards
  • Taylor Edwards

    When did they say the didn’t want to take years? They’re already taken almost two years.
    And for your information, Nomura did say it wouldn’t come out this year:

    If that’s not how you interpret what he said, I can’t help you.

  • Patrick Bateman

    LMAO “If nomura comes even close to the quality of the XV gameplay”

    this will easily be the worst/glitchy Final Fantasy of them all lol LOOK GUYS OPEN WORLD- oh another gas station….hey there’s something to interact with! let me just push X and..no I didn’t mean jump..no stop—STOP JUMPING CLOUD! oh sweet a side quest!-and it’s another pointless fetch me….god damnit!

    FFVII needs to be as FAR AWAY from XV as possible lol

  • Patrick Bateman

    there’s actually been interviews posted on THIS site suggesting the story is going to be retold and changed, the things that worked will stay for the most part, but an example they used was the iconic intro with Aerith, Midgar and the train station probably won’t be in the Remake..so if anything it’s safe to assume the opposite will be true unfortunately ๐Ÿ™

    I don’t mind change, there were plot holes in the original and the inclusion of the Compilation added characters and events that were absent from the original game, but things like the Iconic Intro should stay….EVERYONE felt tingly in their lower region when they showed off the PS3’s Tech Demo which was the Intro remastered, it STARTED this whole wanting a FFVII Remake after-all. I hope they’ve changed their mind and decided to keep the Intro…and what ever other classic iconic events or scenes that were in the original ( Sephiroth impaling the Midgar Zolom for example )

  • Patrick Bateman

    preach hahaha

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Yeah it better not be anything like XV’s trash gameplay.

  • Patrick Bateman

    lol these people can have their hopes up, but most of us all know it aint coming out this year, and if for what ever reason it does it’ll sadly be unfinished like XV, so I’m HOPING they take as much time as they need to perfect this game.

    I know overall XV technically took 10 years, but the actual development for XV ( not Versus ) was only in development since 2012-2013 when they changed Versus to XV and started over. that’s still about 5 years but they were making it up as they went, and clearly spent a LOT of time on making the characters look as real as they could…( which was time wasted imo ) Plus they used a different engine that apparently sucks so I agree that FFVII ( at least episode 1 ) probably won’t take 5-6 years to make lol

    my estimate is late 2018-early 2019.

  • 2me

    Tabata likes to make us cry lmao, I believe Tabata can make us in panic as well, I can already imagine sitting in the wheel chair as Cloud ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 2me

    Versus XIII script was finished in 2010 and that’s what we have for XV. Had a line for Verstael.. Glad they started this process earlier

  • Patrick Bateman

    the dude’s a troll lol just ignore.

  • D.3ND

    What are the traits for a “stereotypical JRPG protagonist”.

  • Patrick Bateman

    i got impatient and got the Steam version ( don’t have a ps4 yet and for what ever reason they didn’t release the steam version on xbox one with achievements ) and im doing the exact same thing haha ever since i heard him in Kingdom Hearts and all the other actors in AC i’ve been reading all the characters with their voice actors. Steve Burton will always be Cloud and George Newbern will always be Sephiroth to me.

  • D.3ND

    These info’s are only appetizers to occupy us until the main course which is the Trailer & Gameplay.

  • Randy Marsh

    Nothing really bad, just the stereotypical gungho “let’s stop the bad guys and friendship is key (disc two ending)” kind of traits. You know, the stuff mai man Takahiro Sakurai voices the best.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    you take these words ? โ€œThe release of these titles will still be a while,โ€ as confirmation? why not wait until e3 at least. you think they want to spend 5-6 years on just one part ? they started 7remake in 2014 so 3-4 years max makes sense, if it isnt this late year itll be next year imo. with that being said. kitase said that the voice overs for the main scenario are almost complete. just this week. of course i wouldnt be surprised if they said this e3 2017, “oh btw surprise surprise, part 1 will be finished in a bit less than 3 years” here is a trailer, what is your problem ?

  • xMysticx

    if that happens a riot will be in their ass you hear … we need to be glad that viir will come to wash out xv the trash

  • Patrick Bateman

    E3 needs to hurry up! ( i know it aint official they’ll show anything FFVII related, but I’m betting they will this time )

  • GodBarrierDjinn

    Make the remake rated M so Tifa can have the biggest jiggly, tits the M rating will allow. Fuck anyone that has a problem with this. Seriously fuck anyone that has problems with video game tits/ass.

  • “The release of the titles themselves have still have a way to go. But there are many titles releasing this year, if you can wait for any โ€˜surprises”

    this quote does not support or oppose the notion that the game would not be releasing this year

  • I hope that the remake of this game will appease and instil a sense of satisfaction in the fans of the series that actually have a good taste when it comes to games

  • Sith Fisto

    Ah, the ever-important physical appearance, what could possibly be more important in a female character than the size of her adipose-filled curves.

  • Noctis

    Hahaha how every one feels attacked with my sentence…….do I hear some mimimimimimimi?

    Face it guys FFXV is a mess no DLC can save it anymore

  • Noctis

    Oh wow your so intelligent…..thanks for letting me know tabata isn`t working on this project

  • Noctis

    no your sad

  • Ulises

    Oh wow you are so stupid so I had to tell you, you are welcome.

  • Ulises

    Yeah I know, it’s really sad at this point, he just can’t get over it. I pity him.

  • Ulises

    He did a great job messing the story, otherwise he wouldn’t be talking about fixing it. Case closed.

  • Ulises

    No one’s talking about DLC’s, what’s more we shouldn’t even be talking about XV in here. Why don’t you go crying over a XV post?

  • Noctis

    no

  • Ulises

    I asked “Why” you are not suposed to answer that kind of question with a “yes” or a “no”, just for you to know.

  • Dennis Gurkis Johansson

    Ur opinion bud. Been playin FF since 1997 (VII) from that retro playin all the ones before, loved every single one of them (replay VII once a year as a tradition) and yet ive got 120 hours invested in XV with no regrets whatsoever, sure it has it’s flaws but damn is it satisfying just to roam lucis and find things to see and do. Im not much for western rpg’s but this feels like a great balance. Sure the story is roughly presented but no one has the right to call it trash.

  • Noctis

    no…..is no

  • Noctis

    no you are both

  • stevenm281

    Amen brother!

  • Ulises

    Yeah whatever, have fun crying for the never-to-happen VERSUS and hating XV – Tabata forever. Keep living in the past while everyone else moves on.

  • Ulises

    What is that supposed to mean? Now I realise you are just pathetic…

  • Taylor Edwards

    …Yes it does…

  • Taylor Edwards

    Well yeah, of course they’re gonna change things, but they have enough ground work for it to not take as long to write the script as it would for any other game.

  • No it does not, however, your ability not to see that for yourself could possibly mean that you are an idiot

  • Patrick Bateman

    same goes for you bub lol ( your opinion ) as an opinion I have the right to call it what ever I want though, and as far as Western style RPG’s go, I’m sorry but to me, and others this game is TRASH.

    an example of good Western RPG’s are Dragon Age Origins/ Inquisition and the Witcher series. “satisfying just to roam lucis and find things to see and do.” you mean like take a photo and find a stranded car or injured person? the open world is bare bub haha the scenery is beautiful don’t get me wrong, but it’s empty and dull in regards to things to do, reasons to do them, and towns and cities to interact with ( those pathetic gas stations with trailers and diners that all look the same don’t count :p )….to each there own, but if FFVII becomes anything to close to what XV was, there’s gonna be a lot of pissed off people LOL

  • Patrick Bateman

    one can only hope haha I’m trying really hard not to get hyped but because it’s VII, I just can’t help myself!! ๐Ÿ™

  • Taylor Edwards

    …Okay?

  • These are facts !!! Can’t wait for them to speak on screen.

  • Leslie Chan
