According to recent job postings by Square Enix, seeking urgent applicants, the remake of the Final Fantasy VII will not only be a completely new creation, it is hoped that it will even surpass the original. Fans are eagerly anticipating coming details on the remake, especially considering the fact that those details have been very scarce since originally announced in 2015. Is there more to learn about the Final Fantasy VII Remake this year?
The job listing announcement posted by Square Enix stated that the developer is currently undertaking this long-awaited remake of Final Fantasy VII. It was further revealed that the developer does not expect the remake to be a simple one, but instead, a totally new creation that will meet the onslaught of reactions that came into play back in 2015 when it was announced to start with.
The job listing stated specifically, “After 20 years, the staff behind the original Final Fantasy VII, who are top-rankers in the industry even now, are reuniting. A project to create a title that surpasses the original is starting full scale.”
The precise way that Square Enix is going to go about making the remake so much better than the original game may be viewed in screenshots and trailers of that game, which is still upcoming. It looks like more action will be added to the combat system, very much like what you might expect to see in Final Fantasy XV. Square Enix is also getting ready to release the Final Fantasy VII Remake in what is known as a multi-part format. It still is not readily clear if that is still the plan.
The job listening goes on to say that there is no specific timeline for the fruition of the Final Fantasy VII Remake project. However, consider the available positions that the developer still looks to fill, gamers may actually be in for more disappointment and waiting.
Battle Planner is the first position that is up for grabs. This person will be in charge of designing the overall battle system for the game, come up with boss and enemy ideas, and create environments, including growth parameters for the characters the players will be in charge of. Level Planner is another available slot, and is the person in charge of creating a workflow for production, coming up with level design ideas, and putting everything together through the Unreal Engine 4.
