The development of Square Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake is being assited by CyberConnect 2, a studio known for the Naruto fighting games and .Hack series of RPGs.
Final Fantasy VII Remake director Testuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed CyberConnect2’s involvement in an interview with Japanese video game magazine Famitsu (translated to English by Nova Crystallis). CyberConnect2 has assisted previously on Final Fantasy VII G-Bike. What’s more interesting is that, prior to Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s unveiling at E3 2015, CyberConnect2 president Hiroshi Matsuyama had stated in an interest in his studio working on the remake.
“For now I’m really dedicated to adaptations of Naruto and JJBA. Working on a new project requires more time as was the case. The .Hacks came out of the minds of teams at CyberConnect2. However, if I have to work on another project I’d like to work on a possible remake of Final Fantasy 7.”
