Final Fantasy VII Remake Dev Sheds Light On What To Expect From Future Installments
With Final fantasy VII Remake Intergrade having now shipped exclusively for the PS5, fans are back to anxiously awaiting the second entry in the remake series. Earlier this year, game director Tetsuya Nomura offered a status update on Part 2 of the series, confirming that development is moving forward quite well and that he hopes to make a proper announcement when the timing is right. While we await said announcement, Square Enix has revealed a bit more of what to expect from future entries in the remake series.
In a new blog post over on the Square Enix website, Final Fantasy VII Remake co-director Motomu Toriyama broke down what the team did to modernize the ever-popular Honeybee Inn, with the co-director likening the work done to what fans will see happen in future installments in the series. “This scene is a key example of something that was changed dramatically from the original Final Fantasy VII,” Toriyama explained.
I was a bit worried about what fans of the original game would think, but the whole scene got a much more enthusiastic reception than I could ever have hoped for, so I was quite relieved.”
Toriyama goes on to suggest that the work done and changes made to the Honeybee Inn scenes will echo Square Enix’s plans to change parts of the original game for the remake. “Going forward, I’m sure some parts of the remake will differ significantly from the original,” he said. “I hope this scene can be a good example of how to approach such changes.”
Those that have seen the final few hours of the Final Fantasy VII Remake already know that Square Enix is making some drastic changes to the original game. At least now we know that the parts that do stay the same will simply be improved for the better.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is now available exclusively for PS5.
