06/12/2019: "Full length E3 trailer debuts with new details, pricing and Tifa"
At Square Enix's E3 press conference a full length trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake debuted. The trailer features our first look at Tifa, as well as a quick shot of Heidegger and President Shinra. On stage Producer Yoshinori Kitase revealed that they "anticipate two bluray discs worth of gameplay content" for the first episode, which will only feature the Midgar segment of the game.
"To do the whole story was going to be huge. And then when we actually did start planning out the plot for the first game, it hit us again that this is going to be a huge amount of content." Kitase explained in an interview with Games Radar. "At that point, we decided we're going to focus this game on Midgar and what happened in Midgar. And unfortunately, we can't say anything more about the future games after that, because we don't know ourselves, really. We really are still fleshing out that process and fleshing out what we're going to do for the second game in the project, and what kind of story is going to be in that, so we really can't tell you."
During the presentation an extended gameplay segment was shown, including the first boss battle with Guard Scorpion. During the demo it was also demonstrated that the action combat could be paused to allow you to select commands and decide on your next plan of attack.
After the conference the Square Enix store revealed pricing and editions. The Standard Edition is priced at $59.99/£59.99 and includes a Chocobo Chick summon materia DLC if you pre-order. If you step up to the Deluxe Edition for $79.99/£79.99 you get a steelbook case, hardback artbook, mini-soundtrack CD and Cactuar DLC, in addition to the Chocobo Chick.
