New information about Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be revealed this weekend, according to the game’s co-director.
Just yesterday, February 7, Square Enix released the video just below Final Fantasy 7 Remake co-director Motomu Toriyama (as translated by the ever-reliable @aitaikimochi). In the video, Toriyama describes how there will be a few things about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake that will be revealed during the upcoming orchestra concert, which takes place this Saturday in Japan at 17.00 JST.

– In addition to the performance, we have also planned a special program, says Toriyama, according to the fan translation. “There will be a few things about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake that will only be revealed during this concert,” the co-director adds, adding that he will be present during the concert, which takes place completely remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan.
When it comes to what these “few things” about the game can be, there are finally some who are guessing. Speculations about social media have a PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake which will be announced at the concert this weekend. Square Enix actually updated the remake to patch in some form of PS5-related support back last year before Sony’s next-generation console was even launched, but no updated features or extra bonuses have ever been revealed.
Just last week, the co-directors of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Hamaguchi talked about what they wanted to achieve in Part 2 of the remake. Kitase stated that the development team wanted to go “beyond” the fans’ expectations, while Hamaguchi commented that they wanted to take the level of detail in Midgar and use it on the rest of the world in part 2 of the new recording. It is absolutely no small feat.
