As everyone here must already know, the universe of Final Fantasy VII isn't limited to the original game itself. After the initial success of FFVII, it spawned a subseries of its own, consisting of multiple video games, a movie, animes and novellas. Commonly refered to as The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, these extensions of FFVII fill the gaps in its story, add new elements to the lore or even outright retcon some parts of the original. However, the Compilation didn't repeat FF7's success and became fairly divisive among the fanbase. Some fans loved it for being able to spend more time with characters and world they loved, others believe it to be of subpar quality and decry it as a taint on FF7's reputation. Either way, there is a massive amount of content in this expanded universe of FF7 and I'm very curious about how SE is going to approach all this material when developing the remake. Will they fully embrace the Compilation and stuff the Remake with lots of references? Or will they try to play it safe and either ignore the Compilation or be very subtle when referencing it? Maybe they could cherry-pick some less controversial elements to include while leaving out the widely disliked ones? Hell, they could even go the Star Wars route and declare all the Compilation non-canon so that the Remake can have a fresh start.
