Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Be Episodic, Does It Kill the Purpose to this Epic Adventure?

By   /   Dec 7, 2015

During its Keynote at the PlayStation Experience, Sony shared a brand new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake. The footage also gave a glimpse of gameplay, which was enough to excite millions of fans on the internet. Along with the trailer, we were told that Final Fantasy VII is going to be an episodic release.

Meaning it will be launched in multiple parts, similar to the way Resident Evil: Revelations 2 and other games were released. Why that is the case? Will it benefit the game’s development? Nomura and Kitase believe it will.

In a recent interview, Nomura and Kitase stated:

Nomura: 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.”

Kitase: As you can see in the trailer, we showed Sector 1 and Sector 8, but in those areas alone, I think you can see a lot of density. When you’re remaking the entirety of the original version in that quality, it’s not possible to fit it all in one release.

While a part of me agrees with both of these developers, I don’t think going episodic or multi-parts will sit well with fans of the game. Final Fantasy VII is one massive adventure that should be played in one go, having to wait for the next episode pretty much kills the mood and purpose of this epic remake.

Unfortunately, at this point we can’t do anything about it and although I would love one single game, it is better to play in episodes then to have content cut from it to fit into one title.
