There's now barely a month to go until Final Fantasy 7 Remake finally launches. In a series of new interviews, co-director Tetsuya Nomura sheds some light on the new story beats being created for the remake.
"There are many new events in the main story," said Nomura in an interview with 4Gamer, as translated by DualShockers. "Like a scene where you end up visiting Jessie's parents, eating dinner. Each member of Avalanche is much more detailed compared to the original game, with new events to boot. By the time players leave Midgar, I'm sure they'll be satisfied."
This certainly comes as a bit of a surprise. Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie already seemed to be more fleshed-out characters in Final Fantasy 7 Remake in just the demo, but it sounds like we'll be delving deeper into each character with new quests.
Speaking of new quests, Nomura also revealed the side quest content in Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be "as big as the main story." It turns out the development team had prepared even more side content for the remake, but some of it had to be cut in order to "prioritize quality," as Nomura told Famitsu. That certainly sounds like a promising sign for more involved side quests.
Finally, Nomura says we'll be able to "move around using vehicles at some points." Midgar is a big city after all, but I wonder what capacity we'll be using these vehicles in. Will they just act as a fast travel system, or will the game have a fully-fledged driving mechanic?
Thanks to DualShockers again for the translations.
