Final Fantasy 30th anniversary opening ceremony was just the start, says Shinji Hashimoto


If you were disappointed with yesterday’s Final Fantasy 30th anniversary event, don’t fret. Square Enix is promising this is just the beginning.

Speaking with Famitsu this week, Final Fantasy series boss Shinji Hashimoto had a few choice words for the magazine – noting there are new Final Fantasy titles currently in production. “This event was a ceremony to raise the curtain on the 30th anniversary, in other words an ‘opening ceremony.’ We’re preparing various projects from hereon. We’re preparing some announcements — and not just limited to home games.”

This year also marks the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII and Hashimoto says there won’t be zero news there either. “Basically, I still can’t say anything, but there might be something from Kitase.”

For now, fans can expect Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age within the first half of the year or so as far as major titles go. Director Tetsuya Nomura also hopes to share more on Final Fantasy VII Remake.
