Yoshinori Kitase, Tetsuya Nomura on the Final Fantasy VIII Remaster's PC version and what can we expect from TGS 2019 regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Update: Corrected certain parts with more details now that Famitsu is available.

This week’s Famitsu magazine included an interview with Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase along with comments from Tetsuya Nomura. They both spoke about the PC version of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, and what to expect from Tokyo Game Show 2019 regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Yoshinori Kitase mentioned the PC version of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered was mostly handled by French studio Dotemu. Meanwhile, the game’s models were created and implemented by Access Games. As for why the PC version of Final Fantasy VIII Remastered has exclusive features, Kitase said it’s because they thought PC has a higher hardcore player base who will like these features.

As for Final Fantasy VII Remake, Tetsuya Nomura mentioned Square Enix is currently working on a new trailer which will be shown at Tokyo Game Show 2019. Yoshinori Kitase will be at the event, but Tetsuya Nomura will be absent. We’ll also get to see more of the Shinra characters. Nomura also mentioned a more detailed replica of the Hardy-Daytona bike will be on display, along with real-size replica of Cloud’s Buster Sword.

We’ve translated the previous Tetsuya Nomura Famitsu interview on Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Speaking of Nomura, a new trailer for the Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind DLC is coming next week. Nomura also talked about the DLC recently.

Final Fantasy VII Remake launches on PS4 on March 3, 2020. You can preorder it on Amazon. Tokyo Game Show 2019 will take place next week from September 12 to 15. I’m looking forward to seeing FF7 best boy Reno.
