In a recent interview in Dengeki PlayStation, as translated by Gematsu, director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase talked about some of what they're working on for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

"Basically, it will be fully voiced," Nomura told the magazine. "We still haven’t decided the voices of the characters that weren't in Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children."

"It would be impossible not to. (Laughs.)," Kitase said about the game's dating events. "However, since it’s different from that time and social situation, we need to implement the reproduction of original events carefully."

As for whether or not it will have an open-world, Kitase didn't want use terms like 'open-world' or 'sandbox'. "Since Nomura is more focused on the creation of the scenery, we want to express an environment character actions affect the scenery," he added.

Voiced characters will definitely go a long way in help the team delve deeper characters' stories.
