The team creating Final Fantasy 7 Remake has said that it's going to be a "multi-part series" because otherwise it would be forced to cut some content.

In an interview with Dengeki Online, translated by Gematsu, director Tetsuya Nomura said: "If we dedicated our time to a single release, parts of it would become summarized.

"We’d have to cut some parts, and additional parts would come in few, so rather than remake the game as a full volume, we decided to do multiple parts."

After showing a stunning trailer for FF7 Remake over the weekend, it was left to a Square Enix press release to fill in details about the release.

Splitting the game into multiple parts hasn't gone down well with some fans.

"If we dedicated our time to a single release, parts of it would become summarized," added producer Yoshinori Kitase.

"We’d have to cut some parts, and additional parts would come in few, so rather than remake the game as a full volume, we decided to do multiple parts."
