The "Final Fantasy 7" remake will be joining the ranks of other Square Enix titles who are paving their way into high definition remake territory, such as recent "Kingdom Hearts" titles and the upcoming "Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age". Square Enix recently unveiled its roadmap for planned game releases that showed a fiscal year (FY) 2018 target launch date for "Kingdom Hearts 3".
It's been awhile since we've heard anything official from Kingdom Hearts 3, the whimsical sequel that has been in production since 2006 (and first confirmed by Square in 2013). Of course, neither title appears in the 2017 section, as both appear underneath the FY2018 and beyond header.
But Square Enix have proven in the past to really take their time with these two franchises in particular. The PS2 classic was one of the best of the modern Final Fantasy releases, although at eleven years old it's a bit of a stretch to consider it "modern" any more. According to the data on the document, it seems that the games will release sometime in 2018. Even then, we may not end up getting either game that year; it all depends on how each game is going.
Square Enix also revealed that Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age will have special editions, a clear indicator that the developer feels the remaster is a meaningful release for a number of JRPG fans. Both of those have release dates attached, with other projects featuring vague release windows that will still make it this year. It looks more like that the fans will have to wait a little longer. "Last year, I didn't put out much information on either title, but this year I want to show our progress at an event somewhere", Nomura said, as per GameSpot. Did this come as a surprise for you?
