Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 Will Implement Features From INTERmission
News has begun to trickle out from Square Enix regarding the highly anticipated second part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Series. Following the recent release of the PS5 exclusive Final Fantasy VII Remake INTERmission and its Yuffie DLC, fans have an even clearer picture of what to expect from the sequel, though there are still plenty of unanswered questions undoubtedly keeping gamers up at night. While we await further story details, it’s been revealed that Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 will leverage some of the elements and features introduced in INTERmission.
In a recent interview with The Washington Post, co-directors Naoki Hamaguchi and Motomu Toriyama touched upon some of the nuances of the INTERmission DLC and how they’ll be used to help shape future entries in the remake series. “Additionally, with Intermission, there’s another element introduced: combo movies where Yuffie and Sonon team up…which makes for a different feel in battle strategy,” Hamaguchi said.
I would like to leverage these, including other elements we tried out in Intermission, in our next story.”
Motomu Toriyama also referenced the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII and how he’d like to see some of the elements and characters from the spin-off titles be brought into the remake series, not unlike what was done with Nero and Weiss for the INTERmission. “The world of Final Fantasy VII was vastly expanded through multiple works that followed after the original game,” Toriyama said.
We do want to make it a culmination of all the Final Fantasy VII-related works created up to this point. There are characters that I, too, do not know, but that is the same with Cloud and company as well.”
Toriyama goes on to suggest that any characters that only appeared outside of the original Final Fantasy VII game will be introduced as first encounters for Cloud and friends, which will help ease in those that haven’t played Crisis Core and the like. That said, fans can always catch up by playing Ever Crisis!
Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 is now in full development.
