Recently, the devs at Square Enix talked about Final Fantasy 7 Remake other features and details in an interview. The launch of the upcoming Final Fantasy installment is approaching on April 10, and devs we get to find out more official information and clarifications from Square Enix.
For example, Naoki Hamaguchi, the co-director, explained that the first part of the remake would be “comparable in size to other mainline Final Fantasy games.” Such a thing suggests essential expansions of content since it covers only Midgar.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake New Details and Features Announced
Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, detailed that the upcoming parts were developed to try and increase on Midgar, as “there were a lot of parts in between sections of Midgar that were implied, but never seen.” A reason for such an issue was due to technological restrictions. The devs team wanted very much to modify those gaps.
As for the team’s decision to remove the lion/wolf-like Red XIII as a playable character, it spurred a lot of controversies. Players expressed their disappointment and requested some answers.
Hamaguchi stated: “We felt that because he only joins the team during the latter stages, having him as a playable ally with full character growth potential would not be a satisfying experience for the player.” So, no reason to be discouraged, because RED XII will be available and playable, but he won’t reach the full character progression.
Another essential detail discussed in the interview is that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will have endgame content. Devs ensured fans that they wouldn’t be disappointed at all, but they’ll have to wait for the game release as more features will be added. Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released exclusively in PS4 on April 10. The demo can be downloaded from the PS Store.
