Order, priority and calendars
“As you know, each one of our future titles, such as Final Fantasy VII Remake or Kingdom Hearts III, have a approach very defined in its development. That’s why we need to consult their leaders on the progress of the title, making agreements with them about what information is relevant to take or what kind of details can be more interesting face to the public,” explains Hashimoto.
“A clear example: Square Enix has held and will hold many events this year. From the 30th anniversary of Final Fantasy, 20th birthday of Final Fantasy VII, as well as the 15th anniversary of Kingdom Hearts. Knowing this, it is obvious that there are many fans waiting for information, videos and images, and we are aware that we have to show so much to celebrate all of these events,” adds the producer talking about how they announced the DLC of Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy XII-The Zodiac Age and others.
“we would like to provide more information, but it is imperative to have a certain schedule and control, so that we will be giving information when possible,” he says.
