Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part Two will be directed by Naoki Hamaguchi, who co-directed the first part of the project. The news comes following the announcement of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade for the PS5.
Speaking with Famitsu, Tetsuya Nomura confirmed that he will step into a creative director role for future Final Fantasy 7 projects, including the next part of the remake project.
Today, we announced three Final Fantasy VII titles, but as I mentioned earlier, I’m personally working on more projects now than ever before.
Since we were able to solidify the base gameplay in the first part of Final Fantasy VII Remake and are able to see what we need to improve upon in the future, Naoki Hamaguchi (co-director on Final Fantasy VII Remake) will be entrusted as the director on the next part, while I’ll be involved as the creative director on all things Final Fantasy VII, including the Remake and mobile titles.
My basic involvement in the work won’t significantly change, so please give me your continued support.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1 was released for PS4 in April 2020, and you can read our full verdict on the game here. There’s no date yet for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2, but hopefully we won’t be waiting too long.
