Square Enix announced today that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be, “​told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience.” This is shortly after Square Enix debuted the first gameplay footage during Sony’s PlayStation Experience keynote.

And while my first reaction was…

I think the Final Fantasy VII news might be better for the remake going forward. Instead of waiting until 2020 for the full game, it’s reasonable to assume that part one will release fall 2017. If this is successful, don’t be surprised to see Square Enix apply this business blueprint towards other titles going forward.

So in short…

Yes, absolutely, but you should probably reserve judgement until the first episode releases.
