    FFXIV Character

    (SPOILER)Purely headcanon'ing here but there are ways the whispers could return...

    Well the whispers are supposed to be the Planet's last line of defense to make sure destiny runs its course. Before the fight with Sephiroth at the end, he's seen absorbing all the whispers so there's a fan interpretation that this means he can now control the whispers fully (as there's some interpretations that some of the people whispers seen during the game were his manifestations).

    We know from Dirge of Cerberus etc. that the Planet is disconnected from the greater lifestream of the universe, severed due to Jenova's corruption. It's speculated that post-AC Sephiroth's goal is to connect the Planet back to the greater lifestream of the cosmos. So if the planet had whispers as it's last line of defense, then perhaps it's possible that the cosmos does too - which adds credence to Sephiroth's quote from the ending of the remake "come, let us defy destiny together."

    Now, we also don't know if destiny is a neutral force, or perhaps either being manipulated by some outside force (ala Fabula Nova Crystallis, and especially Type-0) or straight-up good/evil. So there could be a scenario in which there are whispers of the cosmos, and after either siding with post-AC Sephiroth, or defeating him, we end up with some curveball last boss that's had enough of our shenanigans ala Necron from FFIX. And as the FFVIIR Ultimania pretty openly admits that the remake series is the end of the VII Compilation story, perhaps that ends up with everyone ultimately sacrificing themselves, but leaving a brighter future for those who come after - free of the interference of any outside forces (as a brighter future is a pretty central theme to FF endings in general).

    I wouldn't put anything like this past Toriyama and Nomura, and especially Kitase who originally wanted all but 3 party members of the players choosing to die during the parachute back into Midgar near the end of the OG.

    'Nobody cares" never stopped Nomura from running a concept into the ground.

    SquareEnix : Here's two more. If you don't like them. Tough trout.

    Don't forget Dirge of Cerberus, Crisis Core and that FFX novel everyone loved.

    To be fair, they did use the second game to pretty clearly address the criticisms of the first. I'm not sure what the third game was supposed to be doing though!

    It'll be a good ten hours before we even reach Kalm.

    Agree apart from Crisis Core. A lot of Zack fans adore that game.

    That still doesn't excuse everything else wrong with the game.

    Lol the answers in this new interview are a bit more casual:

    https://www.gematsu.com/2020/08/fina...rview-part-one

    Cloud’s mother and Tifa’s father weren’t given names in the original Final Fantasy VII, but how about in Final Fantasy VII Remake?
    Toriyama: “They both had names in the original Final Fantasy VII character design documents, so we decided to use them in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Now Cloud’s mother is officially named Claudia and Tifa’s father is Brian. Tifa’s dad, however, has no dialogue in Final Fantasy VII Remake, so during development we referred to him as ‘dead body.'”

    Sadly nothing particularly interesting in the interview though. Nothing really about part 2.
