However before you get too disappointed that it might end up consisting of a bunch of smaller games, fret not because the game’s producer Yoshinori Kitase has reassured that while the game will be episodic, it will consist of full-sized games rather than a series of smaller episodes, which is something we’ve seen done in the past.
According to Kitase, “It will essentially be a full scale game for each part of the multi-part series. In XIII, each instalment told the story from a different angle. It was kind of like approaching an unknown territory in a sense.”
He also adds, “Whereas with Final Fantasy VII Remake, we already have a preexisting story, so it wouldn’t really make sense if that isn’t encompassed in a multi-part series… So if we’re just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game.”
Unfortunately to date we still do not know when the game will be released, so we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime how do you guys feel about an episodic release?
