New updates for "Final Fantasy 7" remake will feature a details on its battle system and a possible PS4 release date announcement this week.
It seems that Square Enix teased something big for "Final Fantasy 7" remake's battle system as game producer Yoshinori Kitase told Famitsu (via GamingBolt) that the development team has "solidified" the base of the battle system as director Tetsuya Nomura and Mitsunori Takahashi are putting a lot of effort into it despite working on "Kingdom Hearts 3" and "Dissidia: Final Fantasy".
When asked about Materia and other important systems and mechanics that comprised of the bulk of "Final Fantasy VII" game, Kitase replyed by saying that Square Enix is not going to remove the things that were popular within the game so expect some nostalgic gameplay in the remake.
Meanwhile, there is a possible chance that Square Enix will reveal more details for "Final Fantasy 7" remake during the upcoming Monaco Anime Game International Conference (MAGIC) on Feb. 18.
Although it is not an official announcement, watchful fans are hoping and expecting that something related to the game will appear. Whether it comes in the form of news, gameplay footage and even a possible release date announcement, Mobile&Apps reported.
Nomura will be attending the event giving out announcement on "Final Fantasy 7" remake and "Kingdom Hearts 3". He also added that gamers should expect more at E3 2017, Tokyo Game Show and even Jump Festa.
Kitase teased plans for each episode of "Final Fantasy 7" remake to make sure that players and fans’ interest is maintained in the title despite the fact that there will be significant gaps in between releases.
The remake will be expanded through compilation although they do not have any fundamental plans on that for now, but since the game volumes will not be something that they can release in just a few months.
Square Enix would like to think of a way to supplement those gaps to maintain interest for the gaming fans. Kitase also plans to have a live stream or a program to update the gaming fans regarding the remake's progress.
Kitase wants to pattern "Final Fantasy 7" remake to "Final Fantasy XIII" with three episodes and each part will be a full-scale game as every installment may tell the story from a different perspective.
"Final Fantasy 7" remake is speculated to launch sometime within 2017 for the PS4.
