Nomura comments on Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts III development

In an interview with Famitsu, Kingdom Hearts creator Tetsuya Nomura commented on the development of Kingdom Hearts III and the Final Fantasy VII remake. You can read what he had to say below:

What’s the state of Kingdom Hearts III‘s development?

“While I can’t make a sweeping statement because the development process is different from what we’ve done so far, there are still worlds untouched. Production is progressing on unannounced worlds, in a state that we cannot show them off. In terms of the state of development, there is still some way to go.”

What’s the state of Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s development?

“We’re steadily progressing on production. While we are making them, I apologize that the wait will be be a bit longer for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake. I am very sorry, but to that degree I will make a game that will meet your expectations.

“Last year, I didn’t put out much information on either title, but this year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere. The release of the titles themselves have still have a way to go. But there are many titles releasing this year, if you can wait for any ‘surprises.'”


This kinda makes me worried in a way. FFXV had a long cycle because of Nomura and it eventually got taken over by a new producer to prevent Nomura from infinitely dragging on the project. I hope Nomura isn't doing the same things to both of these games, because if they end up anything like FFXV, SE will have basically cannibalized their biggest franchises.
