Upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake is a reimagining of the original title and will feature the well-known characters fans got to know in FF7. According to an interview with VG247 and co-director Naoki Hamaguchi, Red XIII won’t be a playable character.
However, Red XIII will battle alongside you as a guest character that acts as AI, rather than you being able to control it like you can with characters such as Barret or Tifa. This decision was made as Red appears quite late in the story and making him a “full character” this late in the game, would be a bit time conscious for “character development and growth as a character”. So while Red XIII won’t be a fully playable, at least will be part of the gang in the remake.
We got a chance to check out the demo which released free on Playstation 4 last week, and also have an Impressions video if you want to know what our thoughts were on gameplay and even classic mode. FF7 Remake has been a long time coming and will release in parts, the first arriving this April and has gone gold, which means it’s all set for its release.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will release on April 10th on Playstation 4.
