Episodes From Final Fantasy
So when they first announced the remake of the excellent Final Fantasy VII I was thrilled beyond words, hats off to the guy who gave the green light on the project, so as if this game was not awesome enough, it is promised to blow the original game out of the water!
The remake will not only be one full game, it will be a episodic experience expanding on the original story and going beyond it, developers Square Enix stated that each instalment will be set at 60$ each, also each episode will be a full game so it's worth that 60$ price tag, now the reason the game could not all fit into one package is because it is hard to reconstruct Final Fantasy VII from the ground up for current gen consoles.
This week on Square Enix's blog producer Yoshinori Kitase gave more details about the game
One thing that we wanted to be clear about during this weekend to accompany the new trailer was the scale of this project. We wanted to tell you this now and not in the future so that you’d share our vision for what we want to deliver. The biggest reason why we haven’t done a remake until now is because it’s a massive undertaking to reconstruct FINAL FANTASY 7 from the ground up with the current technology. Producing a proper HD remake of FINAL FANTASY VII that maintains the same feeling of density of the original would result in a volume of content that couldn’t possibly fit into one instalment. We’ve seen everyone’s comments and reactions to the news that FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be a multi-part series and many have speculated correctly as to the reason why we have made this decision. If we were to try to fit everything from the original into one remake instalment, we would have to cut various parts and create a condensed version of FINAL FANTASY 7. We knew none of you would have wanted that.
Finally Real Time Combat!!
Gone are the days of boring turned based gameplay, enter real time, I have not seen FF realtime combat since crisis core, so it brings me joy to see it returning in the remake, check out the CGI trailer below,
