Good news to all fans who have been waiting for the "Final Fantasy 7" remake. Square Enix may be releasing it very soon as they have already appointed a new game director, which means the progress of the game will be faster now.

According to reports, Square Enix confirmed that Kyohei Suzuki will be taking over the position as the game director. He will be working alongside Tetsuya Nomura who is also part of the "Kingdom Hearts 3" game. With their teamwork, "Final Fantasy 7" remake will be done at a quicker pace despite being a big project to tackle on. There is also no more "Final Fantasy" title for 2017 so Square Enix has lesser workload compared to the time when they were still working on the "Final Fantasy 15."

Moreover, several reports detailed that "Final Fantasy 7" remake will be released in multiple full-sized games just like in "Final Fantasy 13." However, there is no specific word yet on when the game will be released or finished so fans will have to stay tuned to find out more information. They can only hope though that "Kingdom Hearts 3," which is expected to be released sometime next year, will not get in the way of the progress of the remake.

Speculations also suggest that since "Final Fantasy 7" remake will come in several parts, it's most likely going to arrive in different schedules. Fans are hoping that the initial part of the game will come around 2017 so that it can be available just in time for the 20th anniversary of the first-hand game on PS1.

For those who are not in the loop yet, "Final Fantasy 7" remake will follow the story of the original game. It will focus on Cloud Strife, a former Shinra soldier who took part in AVALANCHE eco-terrorist group to be a mercenary. He also fought against big bad Shinra corporation.
