Final Fantasy 7 Remake playable demo in 2017 teased

We are pleased to give you some fresh information now regarding Final Fantasy 7 Remake news which we know many of you are desperately waiting to hear.

It is great timing as well on the 20th Anniversary of Final Fantasy VII from the original game and it is good news.

Game producer Yoshinori Kitase has hinted that the battle system is coming along very nicely and that his team are aiming to put together a playable demo at an event sometime in 2017.

It’s no confirmation yet, but it is being planned by the developers and what was said in the latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu.


When asked for an update on the game’s exciting new battle system which will be revamped from the original game, here is what Kitase said in reply:

“We’re currently brushing up the scene from the announcement trailer. We can now see the line of quality that we’re aiming for more clearly, but there’s still a ways to go.”

Speaking about how he intends to keep fans busy during development time so that they don’t become bored with a lack of information, he had this to share:

A live stream or a program to keep in touch with the users is something I’d like to do, but Final Fantasy VII Remake will be episodic, and if we want to have it go all the way to the end of the original version, then I believe we’ll need to devote everything we got for it, so I have no idea what will happen for things such as filler development [between episodes] and other works.”

That is in reference to Final Fantasy XV, in which director Hajime Tabata reguarly hosted events which kept fans up to date on progress month on month.

There’s more direct translation from the Famitsu interview courtesy of NovaCrystallis if you want to read more.
