This week’s Famitsu features retrospectives on Final Fantasy VII and XI. In the Final Fantasy VII feature, character designer Tetsuya Nomura shares his thoughts on the game, a remake, and the series in general.
Here are some bullet quotes:
- “I consider Kitase a worthy successor of Final Fantasy.”
- “The new Final Fantasy must overcome the Final Fantasy of the past.”
- “There are a lot of people who want a remake of Final Fantasy VII. However, new titles take precedence. We work our hardest to make something that might be even better than Final Fantasy VII.”
- “At first Yuffie was planned to be an outlaw. There were going to be wanted posters in the street of the opener, one for each of the people you’d become friends.”
Thanks, Game Jouhou.
