I don't care about the purpose of this particular remake (although I think that those reasons are basically made up by you or the developers). All I know is that Final Fantasy VII was a single game in 1997... and the remake is going to be an unknown number of games that will release at an unknown date on unknown platforms. Also, I shall remember that this remake was announced in 2015 and the first "episode", "part" or "entry" is gonna launch on 2020. So, uncertainty is definetly there.
If none of that is concerning for some of you, great for you guys. But you'll have to admit that it CAN be a concearn for many other people. Can we agree with that at least?
It's not made up, it's all there, logically, what i am said based on logic conclusion on how remake will be made. FF7 universe is big if we include all the other games and all the cut content and not include how big Midgar Is. And also the games was from the beginning are meant to be more then just to bring old stories but expanded beyond that. We will get more stories from Jessie and other avalence group as well.
I am not saying you are not allowed to be concern, I am just saying episodic is not the the right words to describe it.
