With an official gameplay reveal expected soon, Square Enix has revealed more about Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2.

One of the most anticipated games of the current generation, FF7 Remake Part 2, will shift the action from Midgar to the wider world.

Unfortunately, based on recent comments from the game’s director, the size and scope of the sequel could mean it may have to wait longer for the game to launch.

In an interview with IGN, game director Naoki Hamaguchi explained more about the changes in Final Fantasy 7 Remake Part 2.

“In terms of improvement, or should I say ‘change’, moving forward – as the next episode will involve Cloud and the company to leave Midgar and explore the world map, our next challenge will be to create gameplay that takes advantage of the vastness of the world, unlike what we did in this current title.”

As you can see from the comments, the expansive world will play a big part in the sequel and should lead to a much-altered experience.

While this is good news for fans, creating a massive open world is never easy and could result in a delayed release date.

Fortunately, PS5 fans can bridge the gap by checking out the recently released Episode INTERmission.

The separate INTERmission episode features the return of favorite character Yuffie.

“FF7R EPISODE INTERmission is a brand new adventure set in the world of Final Fantasy 7 Remake INTERGRADE.

“Play as Wutai ninja Yuffie Kisaragi as she infiltrates Midgar and conspires with Avalanche HQ to steal the ultimate gear from the Shinra Electric Power Company.”

The DLC episode features new gameplay additions, as well as unique combat capabilities and monsters.

According to Square Enix, the next game in the Final Fantasy 7 Remake saga will feature the same gameplay as Episode INTERmission.

Naoki Hamaguchi recently said that part 2 will likely include the combo moves introduced in INTERmission.

“With INTERmission, another element has been introduced: combo moves where Yuffie and Sonon work together, bringing a different feel to the combat strategy.

“I’d love to take advantage of this, including other elements we’ve tried in INTERmission, in our next story.”

While INTERmission is available exclusively for PS5, fans can watch the full game on both PS4 and PlayStation 5. An Xbox release is expected soon.
