Square Enix debuted the “Final” trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade during the “Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier Official Live Stream #0.”
Final Fantasy VII Remake co-director Tetsuya Nomura also commented on development of the next episode in the Remake series. He said, “Development is moving forward quite well. I’d like to perhaps make a proper announcement when the timing is right, but Cloud is running through mother nature. You’ll be able to enjoy a somewhat different atmosphere from the first game… Well, things are progressing nicely, so please wait for it. The next game starts directly after Intergrade, so I hope you will also get to play Intergrade.”
