– Nozue and the others changed parts they were bothered by, but there’s a lot of really detailed bits and you might not realize all of them if you don’t watch closely. As an example, some facial expressions are different such as when Cloud wakes up after being carried home by Reno and Rude.

– In addition to the climactic scene from the original 20 minute version, they’ve also added some direction linking the children with the phones from it.

– Omnislash ver. 5 has become ver. 6, including elements they originally wanted to have.

– Like the blood during battles, they wanted to portray Geostigma more realistically. They weren’t sure what to do with it for a long time, but from around the time of CC started to think it should be more realistic. With that ‘painfulness’ it just seems false, and you don’t get the sense that it is a horrible disease.

– They wanted to have Case of Denzel from On the Way to a Smile as a bonus feature in some form for a long time. It was decided at it would be animated from the start, and there were ideas such as having voice overs with still images, etc. before finally settling on animation.

– Episode Denzel being an animated extra has no connection with Last Order having being include on the previous DVD.

– Episode Denzel is about 26 minutes long. Nomura was in charge of character design for Johnny and Ruvie, and attended the voice recordings, and final supervising work. The OVA features chocobos; this is because the director is a big fan of FFVII, and wanted to add that to show that chocobos are alive and well after the disasters in FFVII.

– For the limited edition package, they asked the person who designed FFVIIAC’s limited edition package again.

– The regular edition is in a black plastic case. The PS3 bundle and FFXIII demo set have different package designs, but they have the same kind of case as the AC limited edition. Except for the regular edition, they are both limited edition version and there’s no plans at present for another pressing of them.

– The overseas release date hasn’t been announced (lol yes it has), but is planned to be released soon. The image of Cloud and Sephiroth facing each other is the cover for the overseas version.

– Nomura’s recommended order of viewing: Turbulence of FFVIIAC > Reminiscence of FFVII > Reminiscence of FFVII Compilation > On the Way to a Smile: Episode Denzel > ACC.

    It has not been yet announced by Square Enix. Sony did it. ^^

    Omnislash ver.6….

    Well, I more or less expected a new finishing move after seeing Seph seemingly blocking Cloud’s attempted ver.5 in a trailer. But I sure am looking forward to the new elements.

    Thanks for the translation.

    Defade: That wasn’t Omnislash Ver. 5, that was the original Omnislash. Love that addition myself, personally, as it shows that Sephiroth wasn’t a complete idiot & actually remembered what happened to him last time. Wasn’t expecting a new finishing move, as they said repeatedly that they weren’t changing the main story elements.

    “They’re pretty much done with FFVII.”

    They damn well better not be! Not after all that crap that lead up to Genesis’s reawakening!
