Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura has offered a development update on both titles in the latest issue of Famitsu. Nomura mentioned that while both titles are coming together, they still need more time to become the best they can become. While it is unfortunate that these two games aren’t going to be coming out anytime soon, it good to know the developers are taking their time on these games and are unwilling to rush production and potentially hurt the game.
According to Nomura (via Gematsu), “there are still worlds untouched” in Kingdom Hearts III and “production is progressing on unannounced worlds, in a state that we cannot show them off.” He added that “there is still some way to go” before the game is ready.
For Final Fantasy VII Remake he explained that the team is “steadily progressing on production,” but “the wait will be a bit longer” for both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III. “I am very sorry, but to that degree, I will make a game that will meet your expectations,” he added. It may still be a bit of a wait, but it will be very much worth it if these games can live up to the high expectations.
Nomura then promised that progress made on both titles since they were last seen will be shown “at an event somewhere.” However, both games “still have a way to go.”
