- The side missions are “the size of the main story” (they had to cut some of the content, too)
- Nomura emphasizes that Final Fantasy VII Remake is an “absurdly dense game”
- It is possible to use vehicles
The producer also mentions the fact that Cloud is very “strange” in the game, explaining that the character tries to act cool in some situations, but ends up looking too embarrassing.
At the end of the interview, Nomura still sends a loving message to fans who are looking forward to the game’s release since the announcement at E3 2015:
“Remake will be released soon, but it’s not like it’s replacing the original FFVII. The original game is the source of everything and thanks to it, we’ve been able to create a new and unique experience. Fans of the original game will have a new experience and different. This is the first part of the Remake, but it is still a complete game, and you will be satisfied after playing. After trying the game, you will definitely have a hard time forgetting it. Please wait “.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on April 10 for Playstation 4.
