Final Fantasy 7 Remake developer Square Enix has shared new details about the upcoming sequel.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be split into at least three parts, beginning with last year’s release on PlayStation 4.
As fans wait for gameplay footage and release date news, Square Enix has revealed one very important detail.
According to the latest reports coming out of Japan, Naoki Hamaguchi will be the sole director of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2.
The previous game was co-directed by Naoki Hamaguchi, Motomu Toriyama and legendary designer Tetsuya Nomura.
Speaking to Famitsu, Tetsuya Nomura said that while he will still be involved in the project, Hamaguchi will take the lead.
Tetsuya Nomura is taking a step back due to his involvement on an “unprecedented number of projects” at Square Enix.

In other Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 news, Nomura said that the sequel will take full advantage of the PS5’s features.
Nomura revealed the news while discussing the changes being made for upcoming PS5 release Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade.
“In terms of graphics, lighting and textures are the main adjustments, but environmental effects such as fog have also been added to further enhance the sense of realism and immersion in the world,” he said.
“As for adaptive triggers, they are partially supported. However, in terms of using all of the features of PlayStation 5, please wait for the next game where we can start from scratch.”
