Recently at the Video Game Awards (December 3rd 2015) Square Enix dropped a bomb on the audience in the form of a full length Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer with “gameplay footage”. Square Enix had previously stated that the remake would be very different than the original incarnation. This was not a joke, Final Fantasy VII Remake resembles XIII more than it’s namesake.
The trailer was met with a mixture of joy and surprise. It seemed that most fans were looking for a graphical upgrade to their beloved classic, not a complete overhaul.
Square Enix has always been a developer who likes to stir up the waters, and this is no different. Fans begged for years for the return of Cloud Strife. Square Enix heard these prayers and delivered a game that is completely different from the original in every way at first glance. Good bye turn-based battles and lengthy dialogue, hello fully voice-acted cut scenes and action battle system.
Along with these changes another surprising announcement came today with the news that Final Fantasy VII Remake will most likely be an episodic release instead of one complete installment. Game Director Yoshinori Kitase recently told Dengeki Online that
“From the beginning, we thought a Final Fantasy VII remake would be bigger than a single release, if you did get it into a single release, there would be things we’d have to put into a shortened compilation.” He added “Since we thought there would be stuff we would probably have to pare down and supplemental things we probably couldn’t add, we decided to divide it up, concluding that we have to do a remake that’s fully packed with content.” It is still unclear what this will actually mean, but an intelligent person can see the direction that Square is leaning.
