2003 Interview: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X-2 are connected
In an interview with a French Final Fantasy website Finaland in 2018 Nojima commented on the link thusly: "This story is a bit of a joke. When we created FFX-2, we wanted to create something, a totally new world. Except that when I created it, I realized that it looked a lot like FFVII... But without realizing it. Afterwards, when it was officially said in Ultimania, it took a completely gigantic proportion when it was just an anecdote."
