Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 1 Will be Set Solely in Midgar, Second Episode Being Outlined Now

Square Enix isn't sure how many episodes there will be.

The first episode of Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be set entirely in Midgar, Square Enix confirmed at a presentation that USG attended today. In terms of the original, that encompasses around 5 hours of gameplay, but it seems like the remake will be much larger than before.

If Episode 1 winds up featuring the entire Midgar arc, that will take it through Avalanche's initial attack on the Mako Reactors; the meeting with Aerith; the Shinra false flag operation, and the attack on Shinra headquarters. Notably, we got a glimpse of the motorcycle battle minigame in last night's big reveal, so it appears this episode will go all the way to end.

Square Enix also confirmed that it's "planning on outlining content" for the second game right now. Interestingly, we got a glimpse of the flashback to Nibelheim in the big reveal, which takes place after the crew leaves Midgar. This part may have been created specifically trailer though.

According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, producer Yoshinori Kitase is uncertain how many games there will be in Final Fantasy 7 Remake because "we don't know ourselves." In other words, we'll be waiting for Final Fantasy 7 Remake until we're dead.

Anyway, we're extremely hyped for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and Nadia is working on a big breakdown of the combat system as we speak. In fact, we were so hyped that we jumped on the mic specifically for an Axe of the Blood God reaction pod.

As has already been revealed, Final Fantasy 7 Remake is a complete reimagining of the original game, featuring a mix of ATB and realtime elements and lots of other changes. It's been four long years since it was first announced, but the wait is almost over... for Part 1 at least. It will be out March 3, 2020.
