Here’s a move that’s not that surprising. Tetsuya Nomura, Director of the FFVII Remake has confirmed that the storyline for one of the most requested remakes in all of gaming, won’t be connected to Compilation of FF VII storylines from Dirge of Cerberus or Crisis Core.
Concerning Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is a title loaded with a lot of mystery for now, it will be different from the original Final Fantasy VII. If we make a compilation, these games will hardly have an overall coherence. It will be difficult because there is no more continuity between the Compilation and the Remake for the moment
Said Nomura in an interview with French website Finaland. So for those hoping to hear a name drop for Genesis in the Remake, your hopes are dashed. But hey! Some kind of Final Fantasy VII Remake news is better than none!
