Despite Square Enix not revealing much, it seems like the development of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is proceeding as intended.

Looking for new level planners is not a last-minute replacement, Square Enix adds.

According to a listing, the company is looking specifically for a level designer for the game.

There is no fixed release date for the Final Fantasy VII remake, with Yosuke Matsuda indicating, in a recent financial results briefing, that Square Enix plans on releasing it "in the next three years or so". For this reason, among its objectives is that this remake is at the height of the original game, which debuted for PlayStation in 1997.

"We are constantly examining the program within the development team, but while it is satisfying to say that the original is reproduced with high quality graphics, We have reached the conclusion that we should aim for a step further in quality so that can meet the expectations of fans".

Now in order to explain the nature of the job, the developers gave away some details regarding the development of the game. The posting, which appeared on the "Tenshoku" job board of the Mynavi corporation, requests for a level planner (Japanese studios use planner where Western studios use designer; in Japan, the term designer is only used for graphics).

We recently learned that Cloud, the protagonist of this installment, will retain his personality in this remake.

"FF VII REMAKE has all functions and contents implemented", reads the job listing.

It'll be interesting to see if E3 2018 or some other event will provide more details on Final Fantasy VII Remake.
