Final Fantasy VII Remake Team Urgently Recruiting, Here’s A Message From Key Staff


Square Enix’s Business Division 1 that is in charge of developing Final Fantasy VII Remake posted core staff recruitment messages from Yoshinori Kitase, director Tetsuya Nomura, and development leader Naoki Hamaguchi on the company’s official website.

Business Division 1 is the section that is responsible for producing Mobius Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy VII Remake. In 1997 we completely changed the gaming scene at the time with the worldwide hit that is Final Fantasy VII. And the remake of said masterpiece is Final Fantasy VII Remake.

For this project, we aim to surpass the original work in terms of quality by increasing the number of staff to strengthen the core company development as we head into the development progress phase.

In addition to myself, we have director Nomura, scenario writer Nojima-san, and more from the original Final Fantasy VII staff lineup that continued working as staff on the production of past Final Fantasy titles, and they are now joining the team one after the other.

How would you like to join us, together, in the Remake of Final fantasy VII?

We are looking forward to receiving your applications.

I believe that many of us developers share the same feeling that Final Fantasy VII is a special title.

Twenty years have gone by and the number of generations that aren’t familiar with Final Fantasy VII is increasing, so we must remake the game using today’s technology and systems in order to make it into a title that can last several more decades.

Reproducing the world of Final Fantasy VII in high-definition requires an extraordinary amount of time and resources, so we’ll need all the help we can get to shorten that.

As those of you concerned with the industry may already know, the number of domestic staff is significantly lower compared to that of foreign high-definition developers. Therefore, in order to further strengthen the development of this title, we must urgently recruit as much staff as possible.

By all means, please join us in delivering the world of Final Fantasy VII, once again.



Naoki Hamaguchi -- Business Division 1

Final Fantasy VII Remake Development Leader

With the strong backing from producer Kitase and director Nomura’s thoughts of wanting to make Final Fantasy VII Remake into the best possible product for the fans, it’s been decided that I would step into the role of development leader in order to strengthen staff structure.

From the pursuit of a new Final Fantasy game experience that can only be made through this remake, to the graphical challenges that come from the possibilities of evolving technologies—yes, we have everything that a creator needs to create in this here environment.

I promise you that now is the best time for creators to display experience and abilities, for this title with high expectations from around the world.

The emotions I felt from playing Final Fantasy VII twenty years ago, that’s what I want to revive, as new emotions for the present generation.

I’m very much looking forward to receiving applications from those of you who feel the same way.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PlayStation 4.

Well... at least they are taking steps for it to possibly not take 10 years.

Still i think it would be better for squeenix to stop wasting time on FFXV DLC and focus resources on getting this out before the end of the generation.
