Final Fantasy VII Remake Series Compared To Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy

Square Enix has confirmed that each part of the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake will offer plenty of content, with Yoshinori Kitase comparing it to the Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy.

In an interview with Game Informer, Kitase offered some insight into how content will be spread across the various Final Fantasy VII Remake parts and used the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy as a comparison so that people had a direct point of reference.

"It will essentially be a full-scale game for each part of the multi-part series," Kitase stated. He then continued by saying "So if we’re just looking at each of these parts, one part should be on par with the scale of one Final Fantasy XIII game."

This should look to dispel the consistent misconception that the game will be episodic, which is by definition quite a different beast. Each iteration of the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be a fully fleshed out game, as we discussed in a previous feature.

Each of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy games clocked in around the 40-50 hour mark for the main story campaign, with plenty of extra time thrown in for the completion of side quests. It means that the Final Fantasy VII Remake could end up being a pretty extensive gaming series.

There has been no word yet on how many parts there will be, although we can deduce that there will be at least two. We also don't yet know when the first part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is being developed for the PlayStation 4, will release.

Once we know more, we will be sure to let you know!
