If you’re a Square Enix fan then there’s plenty of reasons to be excited about what the Japanese gaming giant has lined up. From Forspoken, to Final Fantasy 16, Life is Strange True Colors, Dragon Quest 12 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2 – the Shinjuku-based dev and publisher has a great selection of games in the pipeline. But there’s one game that Square Enix could be gearing up to work on that even their most ardent of fans wouldn’t have seen coming.
As highlighted by tweeter Nibellion in a post online, Final Fantasy 7 Remake director Tetsuya Nomura has risen hopes of a new Final Fantasy X game coming out.
Speaking to Famitsu, Nomura-san said an outline for the Final Fantasy X-3 plot has been written by Kazushige Nojima.
Nomura-san said: “If we are to make 10-3, we somehow have a synopsis written by Nojima-san.
“It’s sleeping right now, but the plot itself does exist.”

While Motomu Toriyama, who worked on both Final Fantasy X and X-2, said: “The probability is not zero.
“But we are not in a phase where we can talk about it, unless we have finished producing FF7 Remake.”
If you’re a big fan of Tidus and Yuna’s iconic PS2 adventures, and can’t wait to see it continue, then don’t hold your breath for a 10-3 game anytime soon.
It’s unclear how many more games will be part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake project, and when all of these games will be released by.
So it could be quite some time till Nomura and co get to work on a potential X-3 game.
This isn’t the first time that Square Enix has teased revisiting a beloved game in the Final Fantasy series besides Final Fantasy 7.
Yoshinori Kitase previously spoke about the prospect of a Final Fantasy 8 Remake.
But, like with a potential X-3 game, the FF8 Remake – if it actually happens – is a long way away.
Speaking to Famitsu back in October 2019 Kitase-san said: “If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made.
“For Final Fantasy VII Remake, the project started from my desire to make Final Fantasy VII with today’s technology while I’m still here at Square Enix.
“So I’d like to see it [Final Fantasy VIII Remake] done by the youth of Square Enix.”
