Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase recently said that the next part of the FF7 story will continue as FF7 always has.

The quote comes from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Ultimania book, and was translated from the original Japanese by a Twitter user who goes by the handle “aitaikimochi.” You can see the tweet below.

“We’re not drastically changing the story and making it into something completely different than the original,” Kitase said in the Ultimania book. “Even though it’s a Remake, please assume the story of FF7 will continue as FF7 always has.”
The next tweet clarifies that Kitase explicitly ended the sentence with “from here on out,” meaning that he was specifically talking about future parts of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and was in no way referring to the already-released inaugural section.
This isn’t the only information that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Ultimania book has given us. Earlier today, we reported that Final Fantasy 7 director Tetsuya Nomura – as well as Kitase – confirmed confirmed plans to launch future sections of Final Fantasy 7 Remake in smaller, more detailed chunks in order to speed up the development process.

“Depends on how many parts the overall story will be,” Nomura said. “If we divide the story into large parts, it’ll take longer to make. If we divide it into more detailed smaller sections, then developing it will be faster. I hope to release the next one as soon as possible.”
