Final Fantasy VII Remake Dev Describes Challenges Caused by the Game’s Action Makeover


After years of rumors and pleading from fans, Square Enix finally announced Final Fantasy VII Remake at E3 2015, but since then additional information has been somewhat scarce. FF7 Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase insists the project is progressing “smoothly,” but development clearly isn’t moving at a particularly fast pace. Why are things coming along so slowly?

Well, Square Enix team planner Shinichiro Biwa shed some light on the Final Fantasy VII Remake development process in a Japanese interview posted last year, but just partially translated now. Basically, the process is slow because of the decision to reimagine Final Fantasy VII as an action-RPG. While turn-based battles allow level designers to “cheat” to a certain degree, real-time battles mean stages now have to be completely redesigned to accommodate the movement of characters and enemies. It all sounds like a rather arduous process, with each newly remade location having to go through three steps…


  • Part 1: Interpretation of the locations from the original Final Fantasy VII
  • Part 2: Planning modifications/additions and alterations to the location, then getting them approved through meetings as well as deciding how much resources are needed.
  • Part 3: Actually implementing the above, then polishing up the location.


Before they begin constructing a new area, everything, from characters, to enemies, animations, and all objects and assets used in the scene have to be created an approved. Only then can the stages actually be built, tweaked, and polished. According to Biwa, the planning/making of assets was already completed as of summer 2018, and the building of the world has begun.

So, when will Final Fantasy VII Remake finally arrive? It’s impossible to say for sure from the outside, but it sounds like Square Enix are really pouring a lot of a care and attention into the game. Fingers crossed it launches sometime this year, but I’ll admit I have my doubts.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming to PS4.

Well... no one asked them to make it an action game. I just hope it doesn't come out shit, like FFXV. Nomura is in charge of this one, so i'm a bit hopeful.

If they just gave us the remake we want they could have finished it and made a ton of money already.

No shit, right? Instead of remaking it, they should've just remastered it. I mean, what's so fucking hard to comprehend about that? I am not interested in an action/rpg FF VII...

Well I think we wish for a remake as in the battle system stay intact, where the hell do they get the idea we want an action RPG instead?
