The Final Fantasy 7 remake will be broken into chunks somehow.
In a press release regarding the Final Fantasy 7 remake gameplay trailer released at PlayStation Experience this weekend, Square Enix revealed a surprising bit of news.
"Square Enix debuted a new trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the full remake of the award-winning role-playing game, Final Fantasy 7. The new trailer features the first CG scenes as well as gameplay footage," the publisher wrote.
So far, so standard press release. But then:
"Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience."
Wha- what does that mean? Are we looking at an episodic release, with save files carrying across between chunks of story? Is this talk of "unique experience"s suggesting a different approach to gameplay in each part? How many parts are we looking at? When will the first part drop? Is "Final Fantasy 7 remake" really the official title - really?
So many questions, absolutely zero answers. Stay tuned for clarification in the next few days, as every games writer in the west is currently hammering Square Enix PR's phone.
