We were all disappointed to hear that the first part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake had been delayed. Instead of launching in March it will now be released in April – not the biggest change in gaming history, granted, but an unwelcome extension nonetheless. However, what few of us had considered was the impact such a delay would have on the next part of the game. Because surely the extra demands made by the first now will distract resources from the second?
Well, luckily, that is not the case in this instance. That’s because Square Enix has confirmed personally that development on the second part is continuing without delay. So, despite us not knowing very much about it, it will trundle along as if nothing had changed. Something we have to be grateful for considering how highly anticipated this entire package is.
Not to mention, the length of each instalment…
But in all honesty, I don’t think any of us are prepared for just how demanding this remake will be. For starters, the one full game being used as inspiration has been divided up into two releases. Then there’s the fact that each of these parts will equal the content/duration of a single, Final Fantasy game. And to make that possible, the team must have thrown a hell of a lot into both offerings – on top of whatever story arcs were there originally.
This Final Fantasy VII Remake is really going to rewrite the rules for when it comes to such re-releases. And will probably leave us wanting a whole lot more from the others that are available. It’s just a shame we’ve got to wait another handful of weeks…
