Final Fantasy 7 Remake episodic release confirmed

Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be an episodic release.

Taking to its Japanese website after the game’s latest trailer was shown off at PlayStation State of Play livestream event last week, Square Enix said the game will be “partitioned” for release.

A full statement, as translated by Google, is below.

“The newest trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake has been published at today’s State of Play,” it reads. “The original version was released on PlayStation in 1997. The magnificently moving story, appealing characters, and movies that used leading-edge technology at the time fascinated a lot of people, and up until now, it has recorded a worldwide total sales of over 11 million copies. (The total is combined from both physical software shipments and digital sales).

“And Final Fantasy VII Remake, reborn on the PlayStation 4, is us conducting a full remake as we review many of its content, and we are progressing on its production as partitioned titles. We will give new information in June, so please kindly look forward to it.”

We’ve gone to local PR to see if we can get a statement that originates in English to avoid any confusion. As the statement reads, we’ll learn more of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake at E3 2019 in June. We’ll keep you posted as we discover more.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is planned for Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
