Square-Enix has sent out a press release announcing that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released in multiple parts.
During this past weekend’s PlayStation Experience in San Francisco, SQUARE ENIX® debuted a new trailer for FINAL FANTASY® VII REMAKE, the full remake of the award-winning role-playing game, FINAL FANTASY VII. The new trailer features the first CG scenes as well as gameplay footage.FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience.
SQUARE ENIX also revealed that the original FINAL FANTASY VII is now available on the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. For the first time on the new generation of consoles, gamers new and old can experience the unforgettable RPG that shaped the future of the genre. In celebration of its release, the title will be available with a 30% discount for the first week and will then be priced at $15.99 starting December 13. All players who purchase the title will also receive a static custom theme, featuring the cityscape of Midgar from FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE.
There’s currently no specifics on what exactly a “Muti-Part Series” entails. The the term has been used in the past to describe the roll-out of games in a piecemeal release of episodic content that Developers like TellTale Games use for their titles like The Walking Dead and Tales From The Borderlands.
There’s also a possibility however that Square-Enix could be alluding to the Multi-Part saga that was the FFXIII Trilogy. Implying that FFVII is the first title in a series of FFVII Universe Related games.
How this news will affect gameplay of the historic title is also yet to be seen. Basic systems such as the levelling curve would have to be changed as gamers would hit level caps via grinding while waiting for the release of the next episode of the game.
