Is There Too Much Final Fantasy VII?
We know that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be episodic, but what exactly will that look like? Other episodic games like Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Tales From the Borderlands, and others are very story-driven. In those games, there is little to no interactive action like there will be in Final Fantasy VII. With all the action and in-depth combat we will get, as well as the enormous amount of story and content from the original to squeeze in, what will the complete game even look like? How many Final Fantasy VII Remake Episodes will there be? Apparently, not even Square Enix knows.
Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of the Remake and the director of the original, spoke with journalists at E3. “To do the whole story was going to be huge. And then when we actually did start planning out the plot for the first game, it hit us again that this is going to be a huge amount of content.” This first episode, which will be a standalone game, will cover the story up to Cloud and his party leaving Midgar. Kitase went on to say that there really is not enough to say about the second game/episode. “We really are still fleshing out that process and fleshing out what we’re going to do for the second game in the project, and what kind of story is going to be in that, so we really can’t tell you.”
Earlier this week, there was news that Final Fantasy VII Remake would be on PS5 as well and I scoffed at why that would be necessary. Little did I know just how long the entire project of this Remake would take. We could be looking at a multi-console generation game. Strap in, ladies and gentlemen. The first episode of Final Fantasy VII Remake will be out on March 3rd, 2020 for PS4.
How many episodes will this project span? Let us know what you think down below.
