A new job listing states Square Enix is satisfied with the level of quality reached by the much anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake, even though we’ve yet to witness whether this level is good enough for fans of the original game and JRPGs in general.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PlayStation 4, and at this stage, it has been missing from the public scene for at least three years now. Is this silence going to be broken in time for this year’s E3 in Los Angeles?
“We are examining programs that implement general functions and contents for Final Fantasy VII Remake as necessary on the development team, and while we are reaching a satisfactory level in terms of reproducing the original title in high-quality graphics, we have come to the conclusion that we should aim for even higher quality in order to meet the expectations of fans,” the job listing says.
“That said, we will tackle the production of this big title by establishing core members of various positions such as level planner, battle planner, designer, engineer, etc. including existing members of the development team. Interested applicants are expected to work as a core member. “
The words used in the listing still hint at a development process in its early phases, which is quite hard to comprehend if you consider that the game has been announced at E3 2015.
We recently heard that, in comparison with the trailer published on that occasion, things have changed quite a bit, especially when it comes to the design of protagonist Cloud.
Whether other stuff has changed in the process or not, it is still a mystery we hope to unravel in the next few months.
