After fans pleaded to be offered more information, Square Onix finally decided to divulge more details on the new Final Fantasy VII Remake. The details are not major, but it’s something. While waiting for next month’s bigger announcement, when we will be offered more information, we can talk about what we know so far.
A recent leak from a Japanese publisher revealed more than Square Onix wanted us to know yet. However, not all of the information given could be accurate.
According to the source, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be split into two parts. The first one will follow the original game’s storyline, ending in the same spot, when Aerith is let down in the water after she dies and everything fades to black. The second part will pick us up where we left in the first half. Rumors also say that a playable demo will be released at June’s E3.
