Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Future Chapters Will Stick Close to the Original


Final Fantasy 7 Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase has indicated that future chapters of the remake will stick fairly close to the original game.

“I’ve talked about this extensively with [co-director Tetsuya] Nomura, but I’m sure fans of the original are expecting to revisit familiar locations and scenes, so we have strong feelings to not stray away from that,” said Kitase in an interview for an upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake Ultimania book (translated here). “From here on out, we’re not drastically changing the story and making it into something completely different than the original. Even though it’s a Remake, please assume that FF7 will still be FF7 as usual.”

Writer Kazushige Nojima expanded on Kitase’s statement: “For me, I create scenarios that follow the general flow of the original story but with the assumption that the way things are presented or how events occur might be slightly different.”

It’s very, very difficult to talk about this subject extensively without getting into spoilers. However, our biggest non-spoiler takeaway from this statement is that many of the more significant content pieces from the original Final Fantasy 7 will be present in future installments of the game. Kitase specifically referenced “locations and scenes” while also promising to not “drastically change the story.” It sounds like he’s leaving the door open for at least some minor story alterations.
