Final Fantasy X-3 outline exists, ‘possibility not zero’

But Final Fantasy VII Remake is the focus for now.

Final Fantasy X

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has a 30-page feature on the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy X, which includes a special interview with Final Fantasy X character designer Tetsuya Nomura, event director Motomu Toriyama, scenario writer Kazushige Nojima, and more.

In the interview, Nomura, Toriyama, and Nojima discussed the possibility of a Final Fantasy X-3.

“Nojima has more or less written an outline of what a Final Fantasy X-3 would look like if it existed,” Nomura said. “[The audio drama] Final Fantasy X: Will and [novel sequel] Final Fantasy X-2.5 were written based on this. It’s dormant now, but the concept itself exists.”

Toyama added, “The possibility isn’t zero. But I can’t talk about it until we finish production on Final Fantasy VII Remake first.”

Nojima said, “I had the opportunity to work with people who got into the games industry after playing Final Fantasy VII, but now that phase is shifting and I’m working with people who got into the industry after playing Final Fantasy X.”

Thanks, Ryokutya2089 and Famitsu.
