Most fans of Final Fantasy VII contend that the main game is fantastic. I mean, would they be fans if they didn’t contend that? No matter how much it means to them or how big the lasting impact it has had on their lives, the Final Fantasy VII extended universe hasn’t been nearly as revered as the central pillar game holding it all up. Each of the spin-off titles range from “Is this...

We’re still not entirely clear on how Square Enix plans to release Final Fantasy VII Remake beyond the fact that it is episodic in nature. A recent interview with Game Informer might suggest that we’ll be getting full releases, similarly to how Final Fantasy XIII ended up working.
