This latest video features insight from director Tetsuya Nomura, producer Yoshinori Kitase, and character modeller Masaaki Kazeno. Also appearing are animators Hiroyuki Nagatsuka and Hiroyuki Yamaji, whose responsibility of giving life and form to these stunningly realised worlds cannot be understated.

As always, those of you were are wary of spoilers might want to give this video series a pass, as each episode is peppered with clips taken from FFVII Remake‘s various cutscenes.
