In a new interview with Japanese magazine Dengeki PlayStation (translated by Gematsu), director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase offered up a few new details regarding the highly anticipated (and now episodic) remake.
On voiceovers, Nomura said, "Basically, it will be fully voiced. We still haven't decided the voices of the characters that weren't in Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children."
Asked about the dating events also being voiced, Kitase responded, "It would be impossible not to. [Laughs.] However, since it's different from that time and social situation, we need [to] implement the reproduction of original events carefully."
Nomura remarked upon that, mentioning the infamous Honey Bee Inn scene with a laugh.
Kitase also addressed the possibility of the game being open-world. "We can't say anything yet, but we don't plan on fussing about whether it's a so-called open-world or sandbox," he said. "But since Nomura is more focused on the creation of the scenery, we want to express an environment [where] character actions affect the scenery."
He also suggested that Square Enix hopes to include the mini-games that "remain favorable among fans." He also added, "The development staff is also thinking about what to do with the mini-games.”
With the 20-year anniversary of Final Fantasy VII's Japanese release coming up at the end of January 2017, the duo were asked about whether anything is planned to commemorate the event. Kitase noted that he's unable to comment, while Nomura said, "Personally, I'm waiting for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 and World of Final Fantasy in 2016. I think when they're completed, I'll be able to release new information."
It’s unclear exactly what kind of information Nomura is referring to. The first episode of Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently without a release date and is likely still fairly far out. We did, however, get our first glimpse at gameplay recently, and Play Arts Kai figures are on the way.
