Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura has revealed in an interview with 4Gamer.net that co-director Motomu Toriyama is responsible for a lot of the dialogue in the game, in particular outside of cutscenes and especially during battles.

You can read what he said in full below thanks to 黒凧 BlackKite.

4Gamer: The TGS version had the first boss [battle] included a lot of quotes like a great feast; is it going to feel like that in the whole story and not only the former just because it was a demo?

Nomura: Yes, it'll always feel like that. Furthermore it's also because we're adding characters. Everyone will speak a lot.
Toriyama (Co-Director Motomu Toriyama) said he wanted to do that, so I was worried and asked him not to overdo it, but he did his best more than I expected. But that gets received well so I'm glad... (laughs)


Following Square Enix's decision to not reveal Toriyama's involvement for years after he teased it it's great to see them openly discussing his work on the title.

Nomura also spoke about the delay assuring it was simply for some last quality improvements, remaking the game twenty years later, how people view the original now, the decision to go action-based and more. You can check it out on Siliconera.
