Final Fantasy VII Remake “a multi-part series”

'Each entry will provide its own unique experience.'

Final Fantasy VII Remake

Following its debut at PlayStation Experience 2015 this weekend, Square Enix put out the official press release for its Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer, revealing that the RPG will be a “multi-part series.”

Here’s the paragraph in question:

During this past weekend’s PlayStation Experience in San Francisco, Square Enix debuted a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake, the full remake of the award-winning role-playing game, Final Fantasy VII. The new trailer features the first CG scenes as well as gameplay footage. Final Fantasy VII Remake will be told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience.

A Japanese press release further explains that because the game has so much content, it will be split up into parts. It also confirms the remake’s formal title will be “Final Fantasy VII Remake.” Visit the Japanese teaser website here.

Square Enix also updated its Jump Festa lineup to include a trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake. However, given its new trailer just debuted at PlayStation Experience, it will likely either be the same or an extended trailer.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PlayStation 4.

Update 12/07/15: Square Enix has issued the following statement to Kotaku: “[Multi-part] means instead of concluding in one entry, multiple entries are being considered in development. Each entry will have its own unique story. As a gaming experience, each entry will have the volume of content equal to a full-sized game.”
