Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Have Multiple Full-Sized Games! Learn More About Square Enix’s Plans Here!
Game Informer has a new report on the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake and how it will be structured. Previously, Square Enix revealed that the highly anticipated remake will be episodic, but actually, it will be comprised of multiple, full-sized games rather than a series of smaller episodic chapters.
In the aforementioned report, Yoshinori Kitase revealed that the development team was using Final Fantasy XIII as the model for the structure of Final Fantasy VII. In essence, the remake will be a multi-part series, and each part will be a “full scale game.” Kitase stated: “It will essentially be a full scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each instalment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.”
He added: “Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn’t really make sense if that isn’t encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we’re just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game.”
Kitase continued: “I, along with [Tetsuya] Nomura-san and [Kazushige] Nojima-san–who are involved with the remake–were also involved with the original Final Fantasy. We were the people who created it, so in that sense, we don’t think anything is untouchable. That isn’t to say we’re changing everything!”
Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released later on. The game will be available exclusively for PlayStation 4.
