‘Final Fantasy VII: Remake’ Release Date, News & Update: How Large Is the Map of the Upcoming Version?
“Final Fantasy VII: Remake” is one of the most anticipated titles by the gaming community but not everything about it is expected to produce positive results. For starters, fans of the franchise have been torn about the fact that the next remake will be more action-based rather than sticking to Action Time Battle (ATB), Digital Spy reported.
The latter’s game mechanics is what made the original version quite the hit among players as it was a reimagining of the classic turn-based system. Now, “Final Fantasy VII: Remake” seems to be breaking away from this gameplay and adopting a modern action-based mechanic that heavily relies upon a gamer’s reflexes.
While some aren’t quite perturbed about this decision, others are already posting their frustration online. They feel that breaking away from the ATB system will turn “Final Fantasy VII: Remake” into another role-playing game like the kind that’s been flooding the community for years. The developers also removed random encounters from the game that made the original title quite fun to play.
"The original version had random encounters, and such parts were in the realm of imagination, but since this title is seamless and you see the path that you're infiltrating, I decided it was necessary for the sake of realism,” Tetsuya Nomura explained. This makes a lot of sense since Cloud couldn’t really run into someone by chance if he’s sneaking around in an enemy base in “Final Fantasy VII: Remake.”
There are also complaints being made online that the new version will be adopting an episodic release. Nomura explained that this decision was heavily influenced by how immense the area of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake” will become as they’re trying to expand the locations from the original version.
This then brings into question the idea of an open world. So far, news regarding this aspect hasn’t been confirmed just yet but fans are hoping that Square Enix will opt for such a massive map to further explore what Midgar has to offer. As for the release date of “Final Fantasy VII: Remake,” Square Enix hasn’t revealed anything about it either but it’s speculated that it will come out sometime in 2020.
