Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake wowed its fair share of people at E3 2019, especially when it was confirmed that the game would have enough content for two Blu-ray discs. However, this caused a bit of confusion, since we knew it would be an episodic release. And though producer Yoshinori Kitase did clarify that the first game, due in March 2020, takes place in Midgar, he put out another statement to clear things up once and for all.

Posted on Twitter and translated by Reddit user Bahamut-Prime, Kitase said, “There had been a raging wave of developments related to Final Fantasy 7 Remake, from the sudden announcement in May, the release date reveal in an orchestra concert held in Los Angeles on June 9, and a playable demo at E3. But I’d be glad if all of our fans are delighted with the many surprises after waiting for so long.

“In doing a remake, what we first emphasized was to depict Midgar, which symbolized the world setting of the original Final Fantasy 7 the most, in a charming way. We newly redesigned the interior structure of Midgar, and added new episodes as well as depictions of the daily lives of citizens who live there. Ultimately, just by depicting the story until the original’s Escape From Midgar, we already reached a huge capacity with a pack of 2 Blu-ray discs, which should have enough density and volume for the world setting and storyline.”

So for all intents and purposes, Midgar still encompasses the entirety of Game 1. However, it’s not just about adding new content. Kitase continues, “To go along with that, we have optimized character growths and boss monster placements for this game, completely reconstructing it as a single standalone game, which we think will have become a title worth playing enough. We plan to develop the Final Fantasy 7 Remake project into multiple titles in the future, but we hope you will look forward to the release of the first title, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, on March 3, 2020.”

Even though it’s the first game in a series – and the development team isn’t sure how many games there will be in total – you can at least be assured of a full game’s worth of content next year. Furthermore, Kitase assured fans earlier that future episodes of Final Fantasy 7 Remake would release at a quicker pace. For more information on the game, particularly its combat, head here.
