In a new Famitsu interview with Tetsuya Nomura and Yoshinori Kitase, the pair confirmed that CyberConnect 2 will be among others assisting the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
CyberConnect2 is well known for their work on previous titles including .hack, Naruto and Square Enix’s own Final Fantasy VII G-Bike. Their inclusion is not too surprising following comments from CC2’s own Hiroshi Matsuyama last year during the promotional run for the mobile title.
In an older interview Matsuyama proclaimed, “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 VII.”
The full 8 page interview will be available later this week. We will update you once we have some additional translations. Stay tuned.
