‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ Release Date, News & Update: Will the Game Be Faithful to Its Original Source?
“Final Fantasy VII Remake” is one of the most anticipated video games of the gaming community even though its release date isn’t dropping anytime soon. Heavily derived from its predecessor, “Final Fantasy VII Remake” will be a retelling of its original source with characters and locations going to be virtually the same albeit expanded on a wider scale.
However, it’s expected that some of its plotlines are going to be revised in order to accommodate modern gaming standards. Although there are a lot of speculations out there, little is known about what’s going to be cut and included in “Final Fantasy VII Remake.”
So far, director Tetsuya Nomura has already revealed that the game will have an action-based combat system as opposed to the original version where it was an Action Time Battle. Some fans have already expressed their disappointment in Nomura’s decision as they are hoping the studio would be faithful to the original source of “Final Fantasy VII Remake.”
Still, it’s expected that this title would make a lot of revenue for the company given that the original title accumulated such a heavy fan base. Right now, developers haven’t made considerable progress on “Final Fantasy VII Remake” as most of the work that was previously made was apparently scrapped, Trusted Reviews reported.
There’s also the fact that Nomura and his team got their hands full in polishing “Kingdom Hearts 3,” which has been slated for release on Feb. 29, 2019. The director said that once “Kingdom Hearts 3” hits the shelves, he’ll immediately shift his focus in creating “Final Fantasy VII Remake.”
Although the reimagining of the title is generating a lot of noise, it’s actually quite risky for Square Enix to tackle this project as longtime followers of the game is expecting a lot from the studio. But the developers are convinced that they can deliver on this front and bring back Cloud and flesh out Midgar on a whole new different scale. Of course, fans will have the last say on the matter when “Final Fantasy VII Remake” is released sometime in 2020.
