Square Enix is celebrating the 35th anniversary of their beloved JRPG franchise Final Fantasy. In a recent update, the company confirmed that more news about the series will arrive (hopefully soon), though fans expect any sort of update on Final Fantasy XVI and Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2.
Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase recently put out a message celebrating the 35th anniversary of the series, stating that they have news to share about the franchise beyond Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and ChocoboGP.
The teaser image (shown below) shows the logos for both ChocoboGP and Stranger of Paradise, with “And More…” listed below them, hinting at more titles to come in the series:
While fans are expecting updates on Final Fantasy XVI and Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, we’ll have to be patient and wait for any information about these two anticipated upcoming releases.
So far, Square Enix has been quite hush-hush about their bigger Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy XVI was first revealed two years ago as a PS5 exclusive, but has since gone radio silent while the developers quietly worked on the project.
Meanwhile, Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 might also be revealed at some point this year as the original game celebrates its 25th anniversary, though that’s simply speculation on our part. We also don’t know how many parts the remake will encompass, but given its lofty ambitions, it might take several years for the entirety of the remake to complete itself.
In the meantime, fans can look forward to Team Ninja’s reimagining of the first Final Fantasy game in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, which releases on 15 March 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
