Final Fantasy VII Remake Is Going To Be Episodic

Apparently, life IS strange. The Final Fantasy VII Remake that stole the show at the PlayStation Experience keynote isn’t going to be a single game. It’s episodic.

Square Enix announced the huge news in a press release that went out at 6 p.m. Pacific / 9 p.m. Eastern tonight. “Final Fantasy VII Remake will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience,” the publisher says.

No further information is available about how that will impact the narrative, pricing, or general timing. For those looking for a Final Fantasy VII fix right now, a port of the PC version was released yesterday on PS4.

 

Our Take
This is beginning to sound like a “greatest hits” or "highlight reel" of Final Fantasy VII moments instead of the full remake fans have been anticipating. We already saw the more active combat system in action during PSX, but this news seems to break the expectations of the narrative one might reasonably have from a remake.

Not sure.  Seems like people are bummed about it.
