It will also be a re-edition, but the productive efforts that Square Enix is pouring into the realization of Final Fantasy 7 Remake seem to be huge. Despite the title will be interrupted with the escape from Midgar, Kitase has already assured that it will include a number of contents that would not look out of place even for a main chapter of the series.
In an interview with Destructoid, the producer also added that the team is treating Final Fantasy 7 Remake as if it were a numbered main chapter of the saga, a sort of Final Fantasy 16. Since the original helped define the whole videogame medium in the 90s, the intention is to “do something incredible”. For this reason, Kitase brought together most of the personalities who worked on the classic for PlayStation, supported for the occasion by new and motivated developers.
Kitase wants to “go deeper into the story and the characters” and “re-imagine the world without cutting any content”. The desire not to keep out anything has had the opposite effect or the expansion of the original idea. As has been known for some time, Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be divided into several episodes (the exact number has not yet been decided), and the first will include only the portion of the game set in Midgar. The release, let’s remember, is set for March 3, 2020, on PlayStation 4 in the Standard, Deluxe and 1st Class editions.
