Final Fantasy 7 Remake Revisited Goes Behind The Scenes Of The RPG Every Week


During yesterday’s Final Fantasy stream, Square Enix revealed that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be released for PS5 in 2023. Ahead of the arrival of the second chapter of the Remake series, a weekly behind-the-scenes look at the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake will provide a dive deeper into how this game was made.

The first chapter is already live and answers a number of questions ranging from environment design to an overview of the design of the Scorpion Sentinel boss fight.

There’s even a section where Character Modeling Director Masaaki Kazeno answers a question regarding Barrett’s strength and if he’s strong enough to lift Cloud’s Buster Sword. In case you were wondering, the answer is technically yes due to the amount of mass in Barret’s biceps, but using a huge chunk of iron as effectively as Cloud, he would fail.

“If we assume that the Buster Sword is made of iron, then it would be a gigantic sword that weighs around 40 kg and there would be many factors needed to wield it effectively other than just muscle,” Kazeno said. “Basically, it shows how amazing Cloud is to be able to use it so elegantly!”

In other Final Fantasy news, the PSP classic Crisis Core is getting a console and PC remake and the Final Fantasy 7 mobile action game Ever Crisis has also received a new gameplay trailer. For a different mobile gaming experience, Steam Deck users can look forward to Final Fantasy VII Intergrade when it lands on PC on June 17.
