Tetsuya Nomura of Kingdom Hearts fame, who is directing the Final Fantasy VII remake, has teased an announcement regarding the title in Famitsu. He told fans to wait for “important details” that would be announced sometime soon, allegedly this year. This is the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII and the 30th anniversary of the series, but there’s no release date in sight. Kingdom Hearts 3 has finally been announced for 2018 and we did get a few good looks at the game this year.

It’s been quite a while since we’ve gotten anything regarding the Final Fantasy VII remake. It’s somewhat disheartening. Nomura is infamous though for working on projects forever without releasing them. He was the original director on Final Fantasy XV but was replaced by Hajime Tabata. After they changed directors, Final Fantasy XV finally began to come together.

Maybe the Final Fantasy VII remake needs a change in leadership. Working on both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy VII is a lot of work, and Nomura has a track record of not following through on projects. Many thought Kingdom Hearts 3 would come out this year, yet it’s been pushed to next year, and that’s if the 2018 release date sticks. At least we’ve seen recent footage from that game though.

How much longer are Final Fantasy VII fans going to have to suffer for before they get some news?
