Audio bug fixed in Switch and Xbox One ports

On Friday patch 1.01 was released for Final Fantasy VII on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, fixing a long running audio bug. While not game breaking, the bug caused the overworld music to restart after every encounter. This meant you never heard anything beyond the first few seconds of many iconic songs, including the main theme on the world map, unless you stood completely still.

Other minor bugs were fixed in the patch, including one where a black screen would appear when transitioning between cutscenes and gameplay.

The music bug was introduced to the game in 2015 iOS version, which was subsequently released on Android and PS4 (the 2012 PC version does not seem to have this issue). None of these versions have been patched, which makes the fix for Switch and Xbox One even more surprising after all these years.

The exact same bug also exists in all ports of Final Fantasy IX.

New Remake teaser shown on Sony's State of Play

Square Enix has broken their silence on the Final Fantasy VII Remake project on Sony's second State of Play stream. On the stream they showed a new teaser trailer for the game which you can watch on YouTube. Over on the PlayStation Blog Producer Yoshinori Kitase promised more information coming in June, which will most likely be at E3.

Announced in 2015, the Remake was originally going to be developed by external studio CyberConnect2 and would be released in multiple parts. Square has since moved development entirely in-house, however many outlets including RPG Site have reported that they still plan to release the game "as partitioned titles".

Final Fantasy VII Remake not coming soon

If you were hoping Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming out soon, I’m sad to say you will be disappointed. At the companies financial briefing Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda revealed that both Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts 3 are currently slated for release in “fiscal year 2018 and beyond”.

It has also been revealed that Square Enix is “urgently recruiting” for Final Fantasy VII’s internal development team. It was originally reported back in 2015 that Square would be outsourcing much of the game’s production to external company CyberConnect2, however it seems that plan has recently changed.

Naoki Hamaguchi, who previously worked on Mobius Final Fantasy, has reportedly taken a new role on the Final Fantasy VII project. He attributes the move to internal development to “improving quality” and maintaining a “stable schedule”. You can read the full translation on Nova Crystallis.
