The classic history of FFVII is completely rebuilt and reimagined. The game features all the unforgettable characters and a story revered as one of the most powerful within the video games industry. Built for new generation of players, the battle system merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat. The first game in the project is set in the eclectic and sprawling city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that goes deeper into the iconic characters and world than ever before.
In Final Fantasy VII Remake players will be drawn into a world where the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation, controls the planet’s very life force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche. The first game in the project is set in the city of Midgar, and is a fully standalone gaming experience designed for RPG players that crave unforgettable characters, a powerful story and the ability to choose their style of play with a battle system that merges thrilling real-time action with strategic, command-based combat.
In recent FF news, the Final Fantasy VII Remake Part II will be available ‘as soon as possible’, according to the statement of the game’s producer Kitase. The executive did not reveal more details about the development of the game, it’s fair to assume that the current situation of the world has slowed down the development of the game, this is also hinted by Kitase when he says ‘as soon as possible’.
“We know that everyone wants the next installment quickly. We would also like to deliver it as soon as possible. Since we were also able to see the line of quality from the first installment, we hope to make the next installment even better in quality that can make for an even better experience. We would like to get it out as soon as possible, so please wait for it. I think we can clearly convey the direction when we officially announce the next installment.”
