In a recent job listing, Square Enix has revealed additional information on the team’s goal and philosophy for the creation of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
The company is seeking a Battle Planner for the game, going into detail about how Business Division 1 (the team behind Mobius Final Fantasy and more) are involved with its development, as well as mentioning other notable information.
According to the job ad, the development team is pursuing towards a “new creation” that is more than just a conventional remake, and with the project in a full-scale development state, they aim to ultimately produce “a game that exceeds the original” of Final Fantasy VII.
Square Enix stresses that this goal is “in a sense more challenging than creating new games”, making it the kind of job that will have an impact on the world as well as one’s growth as a creator.
As Battle Planner, you will be working on the game’s combat system which acts as a combination of commands and actions, with the added responsibility of designing enemies and bosses and setting up parameters of the game’s environments relative to the player’s growth. The company describes the game as “A new Final Fantasy with action elements added to traditional strategy”.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently in development for PlayStation 4.
