Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has dropped off a fresh batch of Final Fantasy 7 Remake details, confirming the revamp of the 1997 RPG will include dialogue options and new enemies. In addition, he also reiterated that the remake will feature the cross-dressing sequence and Honey Bee Inn, which were memorable events from the PSOne version.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Details Confirm Return Of Classic Scenes
Speaking during the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, Nomura-san revealed that the cross-dressing scene has been touched up to meet modern standards, while dialogue will change depending on your response to certain characters. He also mentions The Watchmen of Fate, the mysterious cloud-like beings that appeared in the most recent trailer, who appear to follow Cloud’s party wherever they go.
Elsewhere, Nomura confirmed the addition of new scenarios. While the story itself hasn’t changed, players will encounter new events, which is how the team has managed to squeeze two Blu-ray discs out of the remake. He also describes Aerith and Tifa as double heroines; one is influenced by eastern designs, while the other has more of a western feel.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will also include a few enemies, and players will need an item to recover their Magic Points (MP). Furthermore, each character in the game has different enemy affinities, although Nomura didn’t elaborate on this.
Square Enix will launch Final Fantasy 7 Remake on March 3, 2020 for PlayStation 4. The first part of the ambitious remake will take place entirely in Midgar, although it will expand greatly on the city and also offer insight into the daily lives of its residents.
While the company is unsure of how many episodes will encompass the Final Fantasy 7 Remake project, it has been said that development of future instalments will be ‘more efficient.’ It’s also looking very likely the game will come to PS5 at some point.
In the meantime, Square Enix is launching a Final Fantasy 8 remaster for PS4, which will be arriving later this year with a significant visual upgrade.
