Today, Square Enix has released some new images for their upcoming title, Final Fantasy VII Remake. With the new images, members of the development team also provided their thoughts and feelings about the game. Many were wondering how the game would be structured because it will be released in an episodic format. Given how long it took for the game to be properly revealed after it was initially announced, many were concerned about when we might see the next part of the game. Game Director Tetsuya Nomura addressed that in his piece and revealed that the next part of Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development.
One of the things that many are wondering is the amount of content that will be released for the first part considering that it will take place entirely on Midgar. Many assume that their might will not be enough content to justify the episodic structure of the game. Tetsuya Nomura said “opportunities for discussing our true intentions are few, but with regard to the size of the game that many are asking about – there’s no reason at all to worry. Even in this Midgar portion alone, the density and volume are so great that I had to give directions to lighten them.”
Nomura went on to say “with regard to new characters, of whom I said during past interviews that there would be “none” – though they aren’t main characters, their numbers ended up growing considerably in the process of creating a rich depiction of Midgar. When you think of Midgar’s final boss, you probably think of the M.O.T.O.R., but in this game, new bosses will appear and add to the excitement of the story even more. We’ve already begun working on the next one as well, but I’m confident that playing through this title will expand your expectations just like the world that extends beyond Midgar.” Final Fantasy VII Remake releases March 3, 2020, for the PlayStation 4.
