A few years ago, Square Enix teased fans by showcasing a tech demo on PlayStation 3 that indicated how the Final Fantasy 7 remake may look like. Fans then waited for a long time to see the game as the graphics and background of the original game was not rendered in HD and it is really hard for the developer to touch up everything. It means that Square Enix will have to work on the details and animations from the ground.
A Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer has been released this E3 2015 already been confirmed by the developer but those who are expecting to see the game be released soon should note that chances are slim. Recently, the studio producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed that 2016 will be a year of preparations.
?I believe that this year will still be a year of preparations for Final Fantasy 7 Remake,? shared Kitase. ?I?d like to create a new kind of value for the hardware that is the PlayStation 4 for our next announcement,? said in an interview with a Japanese magazine, as quoted by Siliconera.
What we know about the gameplay according to the little information revealed in past few months confirms that the remake will be released in episodes. The series will need to be released in episodic parts in order to create a proper HD remake of Final Fantasy 7 that delivers the same experience as the original game, the official website of Square Enix said. According to Square Enix, the HD remake will have a large amount of of content. If the developer introduces installments of Final Fantasy VII, fans can expect more stories that were left untouched in the original game.
Square Enix has not announced any official release date of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Next year, the original game will celebrate its 20th anniversary, so it is possible that the developer may launch the HD remake version of Final Fantasy VII at that time.
