Lots has modified, however it looks as if the Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake remains to be “a multi-part sequence.”
The primary Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake trailer in 4 years debuted yesterday, and in the present day IGN realized that it’s going to probably nonetheless be an episodic recreation as first introduced in 2015.
Followers have been pointing to a obscure line in a roughly Google-translated Japanese press launch for affirmation of this, and IGN reached out to Sq. Enix to see simply how correct that was. In response, a Sq. Enix consultant merely pointed us again towards the press launch from 2015 that originally revealed the remake could be “a multi-part sequence,” and that that they had no additional info to share past what had already been introduced there.
Whereas that’s not strictly affirmation that the remake remains to be multi-part, it’s primarily saying that this four-year-old press launch nonetheless has essentially the most up-to-date info… which implies, yeah, it’s probably nonetheless an episodic recreation.
If that’s obtained you fearful, producer Yoshinori Kitase beforehand mentioned in 2016 that every “episode” of this remake “will primarily be a full scale recreation,” so that you in all probability shouldn’t be desirous about episodes in the identical approach that we all know them from video games like Telltale’s The Strolling Lifeless or Life is Unusual.
That is essentially the most important information concerning the Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake we’ve heard since Sq. Enix introduced it might be shifting developement in-house in 2017. Remember to additionally try every little thing that was introduced throughout Sony’s second State of Play stream.
