More details about the upcoming episodic Final Fantasy 7 Remake were revealed in the latest issue of Game Informer. We've known for a while now that each episode will be as large as a full scale game, but we now have a bit more clarity on how Square Enix is going about that. According to the game's Producer, Yoshinori Kitase, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will use the Final Fantasy XIII series as a blueprint for how the company will release each installment.
It will essentially be a full scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each installment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn't really make sense if that isn't encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we're just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game.
