'Final Fantasy VII Remake': Voice Acting Work Almost Done

By Michael Augustin , Updated Feb 23, 2017 03:05 AM EST

It has been reportedly observed that "Final Fantasy VII Remake" has been absent in the gaming limelight for quite some time. However, sources have noted that it might be due to Square Enix's decision to fully focus on "Final Fantasy XV" and after post-launch support. Given that the game has been released and has received great reviews with a couple of sore patches, it seems that the developer is ready to focus on its other projects and its voice acting work.

A few days ago, Tetsuya Nomura surprised fans by sharing two screenshots of their progress on "Remake." Gamenguide reported that Nomura also revealed a new destructible environment mechanic featured in the game. It was also emphasized that the development team is working hard on the game's combat system, which is reportedly "going to happen without interruption," according to the game director. News about its development has been apparently scarce that fans are reportedly getting hungry for more updates.

Fortunately for fans, Yoshinori Kitase was able to share some development updates with Dengeki Playstation. Kitase told the magazine "A remake of 'Final Fantasy VII' required substantial preparedness," he also confirmed that the "voice actors have almost finished voice recording of the main story. The producer wanted fans to understand that they have developmental milestones for "Final Fantasy VII Remake."

Although it might not seem relevant, gamers know the importance of properly working on the character's voices. It is also speculated that the recording might be a hint that all of the game's cutscenes are most likely finished. Fans are reportedly aware that these recordings have to be lip-synced with the character models. Therefore, the overall development of the RPG should be at a healthy pace, given that the developers are already working on the voices.

According to Game Rant, Yoshinori Kitase also wanted to inform fans about what they can expect from the voice acting in "Final Fantasy VII Remake." The producer apparently understands that most fans expect the characters to sound like they did in "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children," but he explains that their voices "may feel fresh" since the game happens before the movie.
