This year marks two decades after the title was released and this new generation of gamers aside from being curious, are itching to get their hands on it. Tetsuya Nemura although very open about the details of his updates during interviews, has still not released the game, which causes disappointments among fans.

Latest update

Recently, Square Enix posted that they are mass hiring skilled personnel for "Final Fantasy VII Remake." On their Japanese website, the publisher is inviting people to be a part of their team and listed job vacancies. Among them includes battle planner, background designer, level planned, motion designer, and VFX designer, among others. According to Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the game, they needed more manpower to speed up the development of a project as massive as this remake. So, the job openings were meant for the title that fans have been eagerly waiting and which release is long overdue.

What can the fans expect?

Last March, Tetsuya Nomura revealed several details about what can the players expect from the upcoming "Final Fantasy VII Remake." In an interview with Funimation, as translated by Gematsu, the game director revealed that the game will have a Cover System, which was shown in the game's screenshot with Cloud taking a cover.

Aside from that, also included in the cover system is the ability of the players to use the crate as a cover when Shinra soldier hurls an attack. This cover system will also enable the player to have a clear view of the way ahead of him. This will be very useful as players will need not wander in the entire map pointlessly and would therefore greatly improve the overall gaming experience.

Moreover, the new feature will also give the gamers an upper hand against the enemies in the fight.

The game director also made several comments about the Guard Scorpion Battle where he said they made use of the expansive map in the game and crafted a battle that would utilize the characteristics of the map. In this battle, he added that players can switch between Barrett and Cloud.

Nomura also dropped several details about destructible terrain elements and part-based destruction elements, which would fall on map and object destruction part.

Release date and other details

"Final Fantasy VII" according to previous reports will not be available until 2018. However, with the recent development and the latest job hiring, several analysts claims that the game might make it before the end of 2017. In addition, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the base title when it was made available to the public, and what is more significant and momentous that releasing its remake after it has reached its two-decade mark?
