Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Make Fans Feel For the People of Midgar

Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently all the rage in the video game community, especially after Square Enix released an hour-long demo that had many teary-eyed with joy. The demo was fun, so everyone's hoping that all of it is fun, even if the full 40-hour game will only cover Cloud's time in Midgar. Since Square Enix will be releasing the game in multiple parts, they're hoping that our time in Midgar will be more meaningful since it will eventually go down in flames.

Spoilers? This game is two decades old, so grow up.

Producer Yoshinori Kitase and co-director Naoki Hamaguchi spoke with PlayStation about some of the big changes being made to Midgar, revealing that players are supposed to feel for these people after that ending we all know. They want fans to know that the actions of AVALANCHE, Cloud, and Shira affect everyone in Midgar.

"The original version went straight into the bombing mission. We wanted that feeling that things were already underway, you were in the middle of the action. Yet if you immediately went from there into the panic caused by the bombing mission afterwards, you wouldn't understand the impact it had on the inhabitants' everyday lives before that event interrupted them. That's why we started with this domestic kind of scene."

Considering how this game will actually introduce original side quests and support characters, not to mention fans falling in love with "thirsty" Jessie, we're pretty sure everyone is going to be bummed by the ending. We're more bummed over the fact that we won't have a second part for a really long time but that can't be helped.

Final Fantasy VII Remake will be coming to the PlayStation 4 on April 10.
