Wow, sounds like it could end up being a lot more than 3 parts now. The original FF7 wasn't "that" big! Just hope there's a "complete edition" some day. Maybe for PS6 or something.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Next game is just the walk from Midgar to Kalm.

If they're going to make it smaller hopefully the price is smaller too.



Gonna be 7 Parts + Crisis Core DLC

He doesn’t say future parts will be smaller than the first one at all.

Also gotta wonder if they'll add any new playable characters. To me that's one of the big turn offs of the game so far. I don't really like any of the current characters (except Barrett). The next game should add Red XIII as a fully playable character at least, but still, only 5 playable characters is pretty low for a JRPG. Kinda surprised they didn't make any of the other Avalanche members fully playable permanent party members, that would've been pretty cool, but alas.

Yeah, I agree with you that they should have made some of the Avalanche gang party members just for part 1, would have been cool to have Jessie on your party. 

Hmmmm, Red XIII joins in Cosmo Canyon doesn't he? Cosmo Canyon is 7 chapters from where remake part 1 ends, not sure if the next game will make it that far if future parts really will be smaller than part 1. I could see them adding Yuffie in part 2 for sure, I suspect that she will no longer be an optional party member and they will find a way to work her joining the party into the story. Possibly Cait Sith as well, depending on just how many chapters part 2 covers.

If Nomura was misquoted here and future remake parts are the same size as part 1, 6 chapters each, I would assume that we will get Yuffie and Cait Sith in part 2, Red XIII, Vincent, and Cid in Part 3.

Here is the full quote of what he actually says:

Nomura: (How about the next part?) Depends on how many parts the overall story will be. If we divide the story into large parts, it'll take longer to make. If we divide it into more detailed smaller sections, then developing it will be faster. I hope to release the next one ASAP.

So, he doesn't actually say that part 2 will be smaller than part 1 like the article suggests, but it can be inferred that it is being considered, since he says that smaller sections will be faster to develop, and that he wants to release part 2 ASAP.

If Jessie was a party member, her only ability would be to hit on Cloud.  Would not have been very useful.  

As for Red, he actually joins you in Midgar in the original.  Basically the point in this story where he joins you as a guest character.



Not much to read into this tbh, it doesnt necessarily say its gonna be "smaller", whatever that means. Smaller in scale perhaps? to speed up the process of making the game. I want to assume that for the open world aspect they'd take a different approach than what they did in part 1, by which I mean not linear and not divided into chapters. Works very well for the story-driven part 1, but a more open world exploration would be a better take for future parts IMO. But then it wouldnt be "smaller". Wouldnt mind if they change the playable characters or the main story more dramatically either.
