As you know, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a game that will be released in several parts. The first chapter, which will be released in March 2020, will cover the entire Midgard piece. In your mind, you must think that it looks pretty light… And for good reason, in the original game released in 1997 on PS1, the game that covered Midgard ended in 5 hours maximum. Well, don’t worry, in the remake of Final Fantasy 7 this phase is much longer.
Yoshinori Kitase has indeed confirmed that all parts of Final Fantasy 7 Remake will have content equivalent to a canonical episode of the license. The first chapter of FF7R has an intro, a middle and an end and will not end with a cliffhanger. The game fits on two Blu-Ray on PS4, which is explained by the density of Midgar which is close to an open world. With Final Fantasy 7 Remake developers can tell the story in a whole new way and make the world around Cloud and the other protagonists / bad guys who are at the heart of the game more coherent.
How long does it take to finish the adventure in Final Fantasy 7 Remake?
According to the latest statements, it will take about 30 hours in a straight line to finish the game and more to finish the secondary quests. Just like a normal game, this first remake will have its share of side activities in addition to the main story.
In addition to finding well-known places that you probably already visited on the PS1 version more than twenty years ago, you will also cross new places with a much more vibrant city than before with new areas that could not be visited on the first PlayStation. The game will, for example, represent life under the platform and above the platform to show the difference between the classes of the people.
More than a remake, it is a new interpretation of the story of Final Fantay 7 as we discovered it more than 20 years ago. Last I heard, the game should be in three chapters, but this information is still to be determined as the initial plans for Square Enix may change over time.
