“We received this question from many countries [laughs]. It took 3-4 years to make Final Fantasy XIII with this quality level, making Final Fantasy VII like Final Fantasy XIII would take 10 times the time therefore it is a difficult project to start immediately. However, we always keep the many requests in mind,” said Kitase, at a launch event in South Korea, according to Gameshot.
Gameshot also snuck in a question about an unannounced game, Final Fantasy XV, and asked Kitase if he has plans to work on it. “We don’t have any plans after 13. I have been working with Toriyama for a number of years. In the future, it would be great to work with him again.”
