Square Enix gave the world a first look at the gameplay of Final Fantasy VII Remake at PSX yesterday, but one detail was left out: Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a “multi-part series.” IGN’s Andrew Goldfarb of reports that it will be “told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience,” according to Square Enix. The details end there, however, leaving exactly what this means still in question.

The most obvious conclusion is that Square Enix is embracing the episodic game model that companies like Telltale have been using and will deliver the remake across a sustained period of time. This might explain why yesterday’s PSX reveal only showed footage from the earliest minutes of the game. It wouldn’t be too far-fetched, either, given the structure of Final Fantasy VII‘s story. But for now details are slim, meaning we’ll have to wait before we can do anything but guess.

UPDATE: Takahashi Mochizuki of the Wall Street Journal has stated on Twitter, “Square Enix says FF7 Remake’s data size [is] so huge, the software will be split into several titles (for example, FF7-Remake 1, FF7-Remake 2). … while [the] basic story scenario will remain same, there will be some new scene additions to FFVII Remake.” (1, 2)

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
