In an interview with The Guardian, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth creative director Tetsuya Nomura revealed a tidbit of information regarding the ongoing Final Fantasy VII Remake effort.
He implied that fans of the Final Fantasy VII movie Advent Children will be catered for. Explicitly speaking, Nomura stated those who play the Final Fantasy VII Remake games up to the end will find that it will “link up to Advent Children.”
You can view the quoted comment from Nomura below:
“If you play right through to the end, it will link up [to Advent Children] so you don’t need to worry about that,” he says with a knowing smile.
Due to the vagueness of this statement, there isn’t much to conclude. However, when considering how Advent Children occurs after the events of the original Final Fantasy VII , it’s not exactly surprising to see it being retained in this new telling.
Still, with the numerous narrative alterations throughout Remake thus far, it’s worth wondering how a potentially new Advent Children would depict itself. Much of its focus was due to certain events from the original game, so if those events don’t end up happening, there will undeniably be some changes.
