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