Fi­nal Fan­tasy VII Re­make to De­but on the PlayS­ta­tion 4 as a ‘Multi-Part Se­ries’

HWM (Malaysia) - - GAX - NEWSWIRE -

Ask any die-hard Fi­nal Fan­tasy fan to name their fa­vorite game in the se­ries, and chances are a good num­ber of them would men­tion Fi­nal

Fan­tasy VII. Why so? It's sim­ply be­cause the game had a very lik­able pro­tag­o­nist, and it was the first in the Fi­nal Fan­tasy se­ries to make use of 3D com­puter graph­ics.

No sur­prises, then, that Square Enix has de­cided to re­make the en­tire game from scratch, com­plete with high-res­o­lu­tion, mod­ern-day vi­su­als that will leave you won­der­ing whether you're ac­tu­ally play­ing a game or watch­ing a movie.

Fi­nal Fan­tasy VII Re­make, as it's of­fi­cially named, “will be told across a multi-part se­ries, with each en­try pro­vid­ing its own unique ex­pe­ri­ence,” ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease is­sued by Square Enix.

What that sen­tence means, ex­actly, is any­one's guess. Does that mean Fi­nal Fan­tasy VII Re­make will be episodic like

The Walk­ing Dead video game se­ries? Or does it im­ply that the game will have se­quels like how the Fall­out se­ries does? We won't know for sure un­til launch day comes around – which un­for­tu­nately hasn't been de­ter­mined as of yet.

No mat­ter, you can al­ways down­load the HD ver­sion of the game – which is ac­tu­ally a PC port – on your PS4 from the PlayS­ta­tion Store for US$15.99 (ap­prox. RM69) or RM58.00 to keep your­self oc­cu­pied while wait­ing for the full-blown Fi­nal

Fan­tasy VII Re­make to ar­rive.

What that sen­tence means, ex­actly, is any­one’s guess. Does that mean Fi­nal Fan­tasy VII Re­make will be episodic like TheWalk­ingDead video game se­ries?
