Visual Design Closes Out Square Enix’s ‘Inside Final Fantasy VII Remake’ Series

By now, most gamers will have experienced the jaw-dropping visuals Final Fantasy VII Remake has to offer. In the finale of their “Inside Final Fantasy VII Remake” series, Square Enix takes you behind the scenes to reveal how Facial Expressions, Character Models, Cinematics, Lighting, and more were built.

If you’ve ever been curious about how Visual Design was done in video games, this video offers a fascinating look at the process. While every aspect was interesting to watch, it was especially fascinating to see how Square Enix used AI technology to lip-sync characters in multiple languages. Few games have gone to those lengths to be as inclusive as Final Fantasy VII Remake is.

The developers interviewed in this final video are Yoshinori Kitase (Producer), Tetsuya Nomura (Director & Concept Design), Naoki Hamaguchi (Co-Director – Game Design / Programming), Masaaki Kazeno (Character Modelling Director), Hiroyuki Nagatsuka (Lead Animator), Hiroyuki Yamaji (Battle Animation Director), and Takako Miyake (Environment Director).
