We'll have to wait for Part 2 for Final Fantasy VII Remake to have PS5 feature support 'from scratch'


It's 'partial' support now

It's still the early days yet for PS5 development.

Studios are still figuring things out, and as such, "full use the PS5," as it has become to be known, is not going to happen just yet for every single game. Square Enix has confirmed as much speaking to Famitsu recently that this will apply to Final Fantasy VII Remake.

When the remake actually hits PS5 in a few months, it will only offer "partial" PS5 support. Tetsuya Nomura, co-director on part one, states: "As for adaptive triggers, they are partially supported. However, in terms of using all of the features of PlayStation 5, please wait for the next game where we can start from scratch."

Nomura continues to set expectations, explaining that the photo mode in the PS5 version is simpler in nature, and "different from the Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind" photo mode, which is more expansive. In other words, you can't change party member poses or expressions. He does, however, state that you can use the mode "right away" without any esoteric unlock requirements.

It's all give and take, right? PS5 features are neat and all, but I don't fully expect them from every game, much less a port. It may, however, color your perception of it, if you were expecting Square Enix to go all out.
