Aside from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Square Enix has another game that has a huge fan base. Although the remake is slowly progressing, developers remain quiet as to the status of Kingdom Hearts 3. Both of these are the most highly anticipated games after the release and success of Final Fantasy 15.
Due to the lack of information about Kingdom Hearts 3, Square Enix Director Tetsuya Nomura shared with Famitsu details about the game. He shared with the fans the transformations that they could expect from the Keyblades, the main weapon in the game.
According to Nomura, Keyblades would have two kinds of transformation patterns in Kingdom Hearts 3. One would have the form of a tank and shield and the other would be a pair of crossbows for each hand and a bazooka.
Transformation patterns do not necessarily mean there would only be two kinds. The transformation of the Keyblade depends solely on the main weapon itself so it could have different combinations. Speculations show that the game might come out either December 2017 or early 2018.
Nomura Shares More Details About Final Fantasy 7 Remake
The Kingdom Hearts director also shared some details about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. According to Siliconera, although the game would have a lot of changes, the essence of the universe would remain the same.
The veteran director expanded more on the recent Guardian Scorpion battle that they previously previewed for the fans. He said that instead of simply ending the battle, they used the wide space and made a scene that would take advantage of the map.
Nomura gave the switching between Cloud and Barret as an example. If Cloud cannot reach and attack an enemy, players would be forced to switch with Barret. It made the game more strategic as to which character would be more viable in certain situations.
Guardian Scorpion Battle
In the Guardian Scorpion battle, it revealed that the boss would have additional powers that it did not have in the original game. It is capable of changing modes in the middle of the fight and would demonstrate different behavior at times.
Square Enix would release Final Fantasy 7 Remake with an undisclosed amount of parts but developers keep silent as to how many. Each part or episode would have the same size as Final Fantasy 13. Developers have not yet given an exact release date for both games but fans expect the two to come out at around the same time.
