Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 is already in full swing; “the new history has only just begun”.
In an interview published in Famitsu magazine, those responsible for Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 have explained that they are already fully involved in development, as well as other very interesting details.
The latest issue of Famitsu magazine hits Japanese newsstands tomorrow, but as usual, it has appeared a few hours earlier on the web. Inside is a fifteen-page interview (almost nothing) with some of the most important figures in the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake: Tetsuya Nomura (director), Yoshinori Kitase (producer) and Motomu Toriyama (scenario writer).
Some excerpts from the interview have already been translated into English (thanks to Twitter user @aitaikimochi) and it includes some very interesting details about Final Fantasy VII Remake. But the most relevant data is undoubtedly that Final Fantasy VII Remake 2 is already in full development.
In the past they have commented that the work of this second part / chapter / installment would be much more fluid, so who knows? Maybe we will see it much earlier than expected (although at this stage of the generation, it would be strange if it was not released for PS5). In fact, during the interview, Nomura mentions that he wants to “release it as soon as possible”.
Interesting bits from a 15 page interview on FF7R that’s released in tomorrow’s Famitsu:
-The next installment is already in full development
-They couldn’t go further with the Madam M massage scene otherwise ratings would go up
-Roche was supposed to have a battle in Ch. 14 pic.twitter.com/UbQ8xQpYq4

Kitase also leaves a rather striking phrase: “the new story of Final Fantasy VII has just begun“Draw your own conclusions!
In the interview, Toriyama explains that there’s a good chance we’ll see Roche in FFVII Remake 2 (phrase that accompanies a good laugh). This all-new Soldier member and character originally had an additional showdown, during chapter 14, but was eventually scrapped.
The interview also leaves us some curiosities about Final Fantasy VII RemakeLike they couldn’t go “further” during the massage sequence with Madame M, or else the game’s rating would have been high (as if the scene wasn’t already pretty hot at all).
They also explain one of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s biggest mysteries: why doesn’t Cloud go down to Avalanche’s secret hideout? The reason, according to Toriyama, is that they wanted to show that the mercenary does not have a close relationship with the eco-terrorist group.
At the moment this is all we have for now, but stay tuned, as the full interview may include more relevant information about Final Fantasy VII Remake and its continuation.
