Final Fantasy 7 Remake will still have an episodic release


The trailer, which can be seen on YouTube, provides a look at new renditions of characters like Cloud Strife, Barret Wallace and Aerith Gainsborough, as well as Midgar, the initial urban setting in the original game.

This is the most significant news about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake we've heard since Square Enix announced it would be moving developement in-house in 2017.

Despite that, fans are happy to see a major update from Square Enix.

Here a comparison between the two different versions of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Unlike Hitman, which had a weirdly forced episodic release, this move does make at least some sense for Final Fantasy 7.

Final Fantasy VII director Tetsuya Nomura has said that the remake was announced far earlier than he'd have liked, in order to get ahead of rumors about the game.

Is it still a bummer that the first part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake has taken this long, still isn't out, and there are other parts that might take equally as long? Absolutely. We might be watching our great grandchildren play the last chapter of the remake if it keeps up this pace, and who knows if we'll even remember what Final Fantasy 7 is at that point. No idea! FF7 Remake is a mystery! At the very beginning of the State of Play trailer, there is text that reads "The return draws closer".

More information is coming in June, but meanwhile, enjoy this short but epic teaser. Square Enix, however, isn't done with the excitement yet.

Square Enix didn't even try to go prime time for Kingdom Hearts 3 previous year.

While that's not strictly confirmation that the remake is still multi-part, it's essentially saying that this four-year-old press release still has the most up-to-date information... which means, yeah, it's likely still an episodic game.
