The much-anticipated remake of Final Fantasy VII will, according to its director, delve into the stories of its characters more richly than before.

In an interview with Famitsu (translated by Gematsu), director Tetsuya Nomura said:

“While preserving the atmosphere of the original, the scenario will dig deeper into the characters, including members of Avalanche.”

For those that are unaware, Avalanche is Final Fantasy VII’s group of freedom fighters. As a faction, they fight against the villainous Shinra Corporation throughout the game.

Nomura also spoke about the game’s direction, and about the current status of its production:

“The direction was pretty much decided upon before we changed to internal development, and production is going well.”

The game, which was notably absent during this year’s E3, is hotly awaited, and news has been slow to come out.

On that, Nomura said, “We’re trying to figure out when we will put out the next news release.”

Square Enix hasn’t scheduled a release date for Final Fantasy VII.
