Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake and head of Square Enix Business Division 1 has discussed the latest progress on the game in an interview with Famitsu.

Kitase says "We're currently brushing up the scene from the announcement trailer. We can now see the line of quality that we’re aiming for more clearly, but there’s still a ways to go."

Kitase also talked about the possibility of Final Fantasy VII Remake receiving further content like the Final Fantasy XV Universe: "I'd like to use that as a reference. A live stream or a program to keep in touch with the users is something I'd like to do, but Final Fantasy VII Remake will be episodic, and if we want to have it go all the way to the end of the original version, then I believe we'll need to devote everything we got for it, so I have no idea what will happen for things such as filler development [between episodes] and other works."

Kitase also revealed Mitsunori Takahashi, the director of Dissidia 012 is working on Final Fantasy VII Remake's battle system.

Famitsu also brings up Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake wanting to show progress this year. "That's what we’re hoping for, but it's still undecided. However, as for when we'll release the next information, for example, I think that it'd be nice if we could have it playable or a trailer for it at an event."

Famitsu wrapped up by telling Kitase (one of the directors and writers of Final Fantasy VI) to "Please remake Final Fantasy VI!". Kitase answered: "We're currently working on Final Fantasy VII, so… I'm also asked the same from company staff, but I’m keeping it pending for now."
