Square Enix President Says Final Fantasy VII Remake Has Been Developed with Cross-Gen in Mind
Final Fantasy VII Remake was demonstrated in an impressive showcase at E3 2019 and it also got a release date, at long last. PlayStation 4 players will be able to relive the first part of the adventures of Cloud Strife in March 2020.
However, with next-generation consoles from both Sony and Microsoft coming in Fall 2020, one could be wondering whether the game will support the upcoming platforms, chiefly the new PlayStation console from Sony.
Square Enix president and CEO Yosuke Matsuda answered that question while speaking to Game Informer at E3 2019.
It’s the hottest topic at the moment and we thought you might ask us that. I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.
The question is,
The E3 2019 demo was short, but it made one thing clear: Square Enix is not pulling any punches with the Final Fantasy VII Remake, giving it their all to make the game the remake the original deserved. Everything works extremely well, from exploration to battle, so what remains to be seen is how the Midgar arc has been expanded for this episode., and a far cry from Final Fantasy XV, which I did like but always felt it could have been so much more.
Maximilian Dood Talks us through his experience of seeing and PLAYING (lol Cyberpunk closed doors *hands off* demo) FF7R bombing run demo.
He is a fighting game specialist and his channel is focused on fighting games. He has a huge following and is close with many in the game industry.
If nothing else, , that's literally all fighting games are. keep that in mind when he speaks on FF7R gameplay because it will be about 10x more credible than any general game reviewer.*
Spoiler: He played it and, after reflecting on the experience, he can't believe it was real!
From gameplay to dialog, everything is explained in extreme detail and he paints a picture that's far removed from what arm chair skeptics have tried to depict so far.
FF7R follows FF7's story line only with everything within polished to an unmatched level of quality that gives a night and day experience apart from anything anyone played in the original game.
I was mildly optimistic before listening to this demo play through, now? FF7R is a Day fvcking 1. What an amazing play by play.
2020 RPG GOTY.
If you tried to shit on FF7R before now, just know whatever other upcoming RPG you might be hyping gets shat on by FF7R in literally ever category going by these details.
