Tetsuya Nomura, in an interview with Famitsu, reveals now that Zack Fair will indeed be the only Final Fantasy character to appear in the PSP’s Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. This may come as a surprise, as the original few Kingdom Hearts games’ stories were built upon loads of FF cameos. On the other hand, it may not, as none had been shown until Zack’s recent appearance, and the DS’s 358/2 Days was basically the Nomura and Disney show.

Zack is an aspiring warrior, a wannabe — wait for it — soldier, if you will. Birth by Sleep being a prequel, the team wanted to avoid characters from too recent Final Fantasy games, so VII‘s Zack seemed a good choice. This decision was undoubtedly helped by Zack’s starring role in the 2008 PSP hit Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.
