Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the most anticipated titles of this 2020, so much so that even the supposed launch of a demo has given rise to leaking all kinds of information about it. Leaving aside the leaks and fruit of an interview with Game InformerYoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake has given new details about it, such as one of the video games that served as inspiration for the remake.
Marvel’s Spider-Man, the Insomniac game, is the title Kitase sets an example when he comments that in Square Enix they take references and look at all the important titles that go on sale while they are developing a new game.
«Whenever new games come out while we are in the process of developing something – for example, Spider-Man- We bought a copy of the game and we all played it in an open space to see what kind of technology, elements and graphics they are using
Kitase continued explaining that they obviously look at the games, but that they are not obsessed with offering the latest or wanting to be traces of everything that is in fashion, since that affects the flow of development. «If we constantly look at these games and say:« We want our graphics to be better than that »or« We want this mechanics to be better than that », if you keep doing that, things will become more and more distorted, just like the release date. It's simply endless. For that reason, it is very important to have a basic idea of what story you want to tell and what kind of things you want your audience to experience »
Kitase insists on the idea of being clear about the concept and the main form of the game, in order to know how you can be inspired or modified, while holding the foundations and foundations of the game. That way you don't lose identity and you don't fall into an eternal period of development.
«Of course, many of these games have many very good elements to carry them out; It is important to have your main idea to not be too influenced. Because otherwise, it is very easy to think: «What if we add this? What if we add that? But because of this, you will lose the central focus of your game, so it’s very important to stay strong on that », ends Yoshinori Kitase.
We don't know how they will have been inspired by Spider-Man from Square Enix, but of course It is a compliment for those of Insomniac That such an important project with such an impact on the world of videogames is set in your project. That is a great sign and better indicator of how well things are doing in the study and perhaps justify – if necessary – the purchase of the study by Sony that took place a few months ago and that shook the industry of the video game.
