Final Fantasy 7 Remake Trilogy Will ‘Link Up’ With Advent Children

Set two years after the climactic events of the original Final Fantasy VII, for gamers of a certain vintage, the 2006 CG film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children really had us on the way to closure, if you can call it that. Visually stunning, even if narratively redundant, it featured insane action sequences that are still incredible today. That Final Fantasy VII Remake managed to become a largely playable Advent Children is a testament to how good things we have these days.

It should come as no surprise to learn that Advent Children has been in the mind of renowned Square Enix designer Tetsuya Nomura. Nomura worked as a monster designer on the original FF7 game and also directed Advent Children (as well as Kingdom Hearts), so there’s a pleasant symmetry here. Now, as the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Rebirth, and possibly an as-yet-untitled third entry, Nomura has confirmed something longtime fans have been dreaming of for years.

In a detailed interview with The Guardian, Nomura said, “If you play to the end [of the trilogy]this will be linked [to Advent Children]So you don’t have to worry about it.”
