Square Enix unveiled a new image of Final Fantasy VII Remake during the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary Opening Ceremony.

The visual art (via Gematsu ) shows Cloud with Sephiroth in the background. Unfortunately, that’s all the information about Final Fantasy VII Remake , which is still currently in development. Also, don’t expect Final Fantasy VII Remake to be released before the next Kingdom Hearts game.

Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts Director Tetsuya Nomura recently spoke with Famitsu about his upcoming projects. Nomura didn’t say how far Final Fantasy VII Remake was in its production process, but Kingdom Hearts 3 is slowly progressing in its development.

Nomura explained to Famitsu the Square Enix team completes one Kingdom Hearts world before moving along to the next. Nomura said it's ”business as usual” and fans shouldn’t be concerned about possible delays.

“We never start by working on all the worlds at the same time,” Nomura said regarding Kingdom Hearts development. “In order to avoid having to redo things once we've started it's necessary to let things take shape only after all the elements have received approval, and there are currently some worlds that are still being audited.”

Nomura added, “As I said a while ago, we also have to remake all the character models and such for current-gen consoles, so there's still a lot of development work to do. But, you don't have to worry about the quality, so please wait until the next opportunity I have to show you something. Preparations are underway.”

Those looking forward to Final Fantasy VII Remake should be aware of a key word: remake. This game isn’t a port or remaster. Square Enix is probably putting a new spin on the Final Fantasy we all fell in love with, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if we don’t get a release date for another five years.

In the meantime, there’s always Final Fantasy XV , which took ten years to complete. Be sure to check back with iDigitalTimes for more Final Fantasy news.
