Each Part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Feel Like a Self-Contained Game

Fans have mixed thoughts about the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake. While most fans are pretty psyched to play the game, some have concerns about it only taking place during Midgar and the fact that this part needs two Blu-Ray discs is questionable at best. Square Enix stated before that each installment will be as long as a regular Final Fantasy game and went explained more about the multi-part series during a Game Informer interview.

Apparently, the developers have a mindset to develop each part as if they were all individual titles. Each title can presumably be played on their own, supposedly being their own self-contained adventures. Many had assumed that the series would have three parts, similar to how the original Final Fantasy VII had three discs, but it's going to be a bit more than that since Midgar is only a few hours of disc one. Crazy.

"It is true that each of the individual games will be released as independent games. That's how the development team is making them. And so for that reason, I'd like for you to think of them as something you can play as standalone and itself contains a game and I think that they will be worth playing in that way."

Hopefully, they're right about this statement. It will also be interesting to see if they're all made for PlayStation 4, especially with a new PlayStation console coming soon. Then again, the PS5 will be backward-compatible so this shouldn't be a problem at all.

Final Fantasy VII Remake comes out on March 3, 2020, for the PlayStation 4.
