The Final Fantasy VII Remake will be "told across a multi-part series, with each entry providing its own unique experience," Square Enix has revealed.
How this multi-part series approach will fit in with the original game's story remains to be seen.
In addition, Square revealed a new gameplay trailer for the game at the PlayStation Experience on Saturday. The trailer features elements fans will instantly recognise, including the train from the Sector 7 slums, the Sector 1 Mako Reactor and some of the streets of Midgar.
The gameplay certainly looks to be action-focussed, more in-line with the upcoming Final Fantasy 15 than the classic turn-based action from the original.
Square Enix community manager Daniel Seto notes that shown gameplay is "work in progress footage so the final game may look slightly different to what you've seen here".
Final Fantasy VII Remake remains only confirmed for PS4, but as a 'Play it First' title, not an exclusive.
Furthermore, the classic Final Fantasy VII game is now available to buy for PS4 on PSN, complete with Trophies. The game is available at a special launch price of £8.99. Buy the game and you'll also receive a static custom theme, featuring Cloud and the cityscape of Midgar from Final Fantasy VII Remake.
