Only a few days to go 20th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY X, first released in Japan on July 19, 2001. To celebrate this event Weekly Famitsu interviewed Tetsuya Nomura, Motomu Toriyama is Kazushige Nojima that rekindle hopes for a possible FINAL FANTASY X-3.
In fact, during the interview Nomura stated that Nojima has already made a draft of what should be the scenario of a possible third chapter, and how this was the basis that led to the creation of the audio drama FINAL FANTASY X: Will and the novel FINAL FANTASY X-2.5. The developer went on to say that while the project is dormant, the concept for its realization exists.
Toriyama then added that the possibility of realizing it are not totally excluded, but that at the moment all the efforts of the team are dedicated to the development of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE and so in case we will talk about it after finishing that project.
The interview ended with Nojima making a reflection on how while developing FINAL FANTASY X have teamed up with people who started their careers in the gaming industry after playing FINAL FANTASY VII, and how now the cards have turned upside down as some of his collaborators for the development of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE they started working in the world of video games only after playing the tenth chapter of the saga.
In short, despite the passing of generations, FINAL FANTASY VII is FINAL FANTASY X remain two of the most popular titles of SQUARE ENIX. And who knows that in the future we won’t really be able to get our hands on a can FINAL FANTASY X-3 and thus make sure to draw a definitive conclusion to the affairs of Tidus and Yuna.
