Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s episodes will feature the same amount of content as traditional full-length video games.
Ever since it’s announcement at E3 last year, Final Fantasy VII Remake has been given a mix of excitement and disappointment, with the majority of disappointment coming from the recent reveal that the game will be released in episodic parts.
Today, Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of the Final Fantasy series, has confirmed that unlike Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead or Tales From The Borderlands, that Final Fantasy VII Remake episodes will contain as much content as a game like Final Fantasy VIII, a game which was spread out across three different titles already.
“When the project was first announced, people were confused by its multi-part nature, but the goal is to structure it more like Final Fantasy XIII than an episodic series.” Kitase said, “It will essentially be a full scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each installment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.”
It has been speculated that because of this announcement, that Final Fantasy VII Remake might need to expand on different parts of it’s story. While we do know that some story changes are bound to happen, we don’t know the full extent of said changes and whether or not certain characters will be killed off.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently in development for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
