Final Fantasy bosses share a special message for game anniversary

The Final Fantasy bosses are extremely elated to share a special message on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII. Furthermore, this is also the 35th anniversary of the franchise, which goes to show just how impactful the franchise has been. Final Fantasy VII came out in the 10th year of the franchise.

Sparing some thoughts about the game, Yoshinori Kitase, the director of FFVII and project producer of FFVII Remake, says, “Personally, I had always thought of FFVII as a recent game, but it has actually now become one of the games from the ‘early series’. Even so, we were honored last year when it was voted as the third most popular game ever by gamers in a (Japanese) TV poll. That we could achieve like that is very much thanks to all the support we have had from our fans over the long years. Thank you so much.”

Furthermore, Tetsuya Nomura, the character design director for FFVII and project creative director FFVII Remake, also made an exciting announcement that will get fans really excited. He says, “Continuing on from the release of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, FINAL FANTASY VII THE FIRST SOLDIER has also opened for service and next we have Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis waiting in the wings too.” 

Here is how fans have reacted to this news in the thread of the tweets.
