Final Fantasy VII Remake launched again in April, and now that gamers have had time to immerse themselves within the new iteration of Midgar, one of many sport’s builders has opened up about some parts of the world and the processes behind creating it. Motomu Toriyama, the sport’s co-director and situation designer, has answered some questions for the official Final Fantasy site, and so they’ve revealed some fascinating details–including a wierd perception into an inside nickname for one character.
Toriyama talks concerning the sport’s soundtrack, why there are cats all over the place in Midgar (it is due to Wedge, apparently), and touches on a number of particulars concerning the design of the sport world. It’s largely fairly trivial, and infrequently speculative, however when requested about the truth that Cloud’s mom and Tifa’s father got names for this entry, he lets an odd element slip.
“They both had names in the original FFVII character design documents, so we decided to use them in Remake,” Toriyama says.
Now Cloud’s mom is formally named Claudia and Tifa’s father is Brian. Tifa’s dad, nevertheless, has no dialogue in Remake, so throughout improvement we referred to him as ‘lifeless physique.'”
True, we solely ever see Brian in flashbacks, and he is lifeless. But nonetheless, wow.
Toriyama additionally talks about a few of the characters who have been imported from the novel Final Fantasy VII: The Kids Are Alright: A Turks Side Story into the Remake, together with Mireille, Kyrie, and Leslie. “From the very starting of improvement, we wished Remake to function characters from the bigger FFVII universe–characters who weren’t part of the unique,” he says. “So, we got here up with pasts for these characters that may match with their tales within the novel.” He also says that the “lovey-dovey couple” on the Sector 7 slums practice station are his favourite NPCs.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 is now in full development, so hopefully there shall be much less of a wait than there was for the primary half.
