Yoshinori Kitase appeared with Cloud's Buster Sword when Final Fantasy VII Remake won its Grand Award at the PlayStation Partner Awards 2020 Japan Asia.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia held on December 2 the PlayStation Partner Awards 2020 Japan Asia, rewarding in particular Final Fantasy VII Remake as one of its Grand Awards. In the ceremony, the Grand Award is an award given to the top three works by games makers developing in Japan and Asia from October 2019 to September 2020.
The event in itself was pretty fun. Well, as long as you’re used to Japanese media and don’t mind the fact that everything is meticulously scripted and that the presenters are always faking their surprise. Special mention to Yoshinori Kitase appearing with a Buster Sword and posing like Cloud when Final Fantasy VII Remake won its award.
Yoshinori Kitase mentioned “the Remake project is just beginning”. We also got to see some development footage of FF7R:
The full results for the Grand Award:
