"Final Fantasy 7" Remake is being sped up as Square Enix's Kyohei Suzuki has joined Tetsuya Nomura. Thus, the two well-known game directors will be working on the same project. This will definitely speed up the game's production until and unless the directors have creative differences. Suzuki has confirmed his association with the project at a roundtable discussion.

Fans are eagerly waiting for more information of the "Final Fantasy 7" Remake and they may soon get their share of info. This is because Square Enix is planning a grand opening ceremony for the "Final Fantasy" 30th Anniversary festivities. The event will likely happen on Jan. 31, 2017 or sometime around that date. Jan. 31 will also be the 20th anniversary of "Final Fantasy 7." Hence, a lot is expected to be discussed during the event.

Information is not yet out on when the first episode of "Final Fantasy 7" Remake will be released. As per Game Rant, 2017 could be the banner year for Square Enix. The upcoming episodic remake could just be the tip of the iceberg. The remake is a massive task as the game will be released in parts. Nomura is also working on another big installment, the "Kingdom Hearts 3."

Even though the game studio has a lot of rumored projects in hand, game experts believe that Enix will focus the most on "Final Fantasy 7" Remake as it has just released the "Final Fantasy XV" in November. Fans are not in a hurry, though. They don't want the developer to rush into things for a release. "FF XV" has received generally positive reviews from fans and critics. Square Enix outsourced "FF XV" workload, earlier reports had said. Stay tuned on GameNGuide for more updates on "Final Fantasy 7" Remake.
