If you could measure thirst, the wait for Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 would be an ocean.
It’s in a very unique position, to be sure. If the first Final Fantasy VII Remake bit bombed in every way, there probably wouldn’t even be a follow-up. But it was good! And it sold! So everyone is anxiously awaiting Part 2 for any number of reasons, which is definitely happening.
A lot of us are curious as to how the team could possibly adapt the open world structure; a stark contrast to the more linear, yet personal Midgar setting. But for now, we can only speculate, as Square Enix hasn’t given us one iota of real info on Part 2. That could change soon.
Tweeting out hype for the Final Fantasy VII Remake Orchestra World Tour this week, Square Enix confirmed that co-director Motomu Toriyama (who worked on the game with Nomura and Hamaguchi) will be holding an “extra broadcast” before the event. That’s on February 13 right before 17:00 JST, which is 3AM ET Saturday morning.
There’s actually a February 12 event too, but the tweet notes that it’s the February 13 event that will give us the goods.
