Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 To Be Directed By Naoki Hamaguchi

Final Fantasy VII Remake (2020) director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed that his co-director on the previous game (Naoki Hamaguchi) will be replacing him as the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 (or whatever the sequel’s name turns out to be).

However, Nomura will still be involved as the creative director for everything related to Final Fantasy VII, which includes the newly-announced mobile titles; Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier and Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis.

In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu, Nomura said (as translated by Gematsu):

“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.”

Besides that, Square Enix has not revealed or announced any significant new information about a sequel to Final Fantasy VII Remake. That’s probably because they just announced Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade for the PS5, which will come with a special Yuffie episode.
