Square Enix is gearing up for a giant 12 months of Final Fantasy releases.
2017 was the 30th anniversary of Final Fantasy; we noticed cell video games, heaps of updates to Final Fantasy 14 and 15, and a few odd curios just like the FF15 VR fishing expansion. It appears like we’ll be seeing extra Final Fantasy experiences subsequent 12 months, too.
This information comes by way of the parents at Edamame Arcade Channel, and their interview with Final Fantasy model supervisor Shinji Hashimoto, embedded beneath. While the interview is basically concerning the Final Fantasy buying and selling card recreation, in the direction of the tip Hashimoto begins speaking about the way forward for Final Fantasy, and the video games on the way in which. “Next year is going to be a big year”, he says. “Our teams are working on some new titles. They are gearing up for a big year next year”.
It’s doable that this refers back to the Final Fantasy video games we already know are due subsequent 12 months, like Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition, however there’s additionally part of the interview the place Hashimoto asks (jokingly) when the interview will probably be dropping, in a means that means the corporate has extra bulletins to make.
The interview ends with Hashimoto promising that the staff “will bring exciting, new Final Fantasy games to the world”.
The elephant within the room right here, after all, is the Final Fantasy 7 remake.

In May, Square Enix was hiring additional staff to work on the game, which is perhaps split across multiple parts.
Hopefully we’ll get some extra substantial particulars on Square Enix’s plans for Final Fantasy in 2018 quickly.
