With the Final Fantasy VII Remake finally coming close to its release, Square Enix released a special trip down the memory lane today.
Producer Yoshinori Kitase was the original director of Final Fantasy VII, and the publisher released an extensive video interview in which Kitase-san is quizzed by popular pro-wrestler Kenny Omega.
We get to hear about the inspiration behind quite a few interesting elements of the game, including the way Sephiroth works as a villain, inspired by the filk Jaws.
Interestingly, Kitase-san — who loves first-person shooters — likes to play PUBG and also plays APEX Legends with his sons, but he isn’t into Fortnite.
If you don’t know Kenny Omega, he’s a well-known pro-wrestler operating in Japan. He’s also a big gamer and Final Fantasy fan, so much that his stage name is inspired by the Omega Weapon and one of his iconic movies is named “One-Winged Angel.”
The first game of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will launch on PS4 on April 10, 2020.
We recently learned that the game will be a PS4 exclusive only since April 10, 2021. After that, it could come to other platforms, even if nothing has been officially confirmed by Square Enix yet besides the date.
