Dear Square-Enix, Please Remake Final Fantasy 7 Now

Gi - This debate has been sung by spoony bards plenty of times before but now it is time to dust off our Phoenix Downs and cast them once again at our hopes for a Final Fantasy 7 remake. Why? The landscape for Square-Enix has changed very drastically recently. What was once a financially lucrative landscape that raked in the gil as effectively as the Gold Saucer now looks to be a meteored apart cosmo canyon. Squeenix might just finally have to cash in that Golden Chocobo shaped meal ticket. (Culture, Final Fantasy VII, Square Enix)

Lets see how they do FFX and Kingdom hearts 1.5 first, cause studios can even mess up remakes.

Those aren't really remakes (just upping to HD), so I don't think they'll be a good gauge. FF7 would require completely remaking everything about the game.

They technically are remakes. They started from almost scratch reworking everything and updating it.hope there good tho
kalkano  +   544d ago
No, the games (story, battles, etc) are EXACTLY the same. The only thing they're doing, is upping the graphics to HD.

those are not remakes. Remake is when you take something old and make it from the ground-up again. FFX is just a remaster. In other words, exactly the same game but prettier... But you can't really remaster FF7, there is no way. No matter how much you bump the resolution and AA the game will still look just as ugly.

Anyone wanting a FF7 remake can vote by buying the FFX HD version. Petitioning with your cash is always heard.

By buying it i'm voting for FFXII first /instead :p

Obviously I don`t know FFX is yet, but I`ve played and finished KH 1.5. It was a really good HD remake. There were a few times in some cutscenes where one shot would be of a HD model and the next of the PS2 model, but apart from that, it was very well done and I felt like it was great value for money.

I might be in the minority here, but I wouldn't want a remake of FF7. Maybe create a new chapter in the story. Coarse with Square the way they are right now that may not be a good thing either.
Hanso  +   545d ago
yeah i want a sequel after all genisis is still alive and picked up weiß body ?!
Baka-akaB  +   545d ago
Yup i'd rather have a sequel that might actually ends up good , over a remake that could pilfer a classic or not translate as well as the original .

I'm especially not looking forward to the Advent children designs and mood being used for the original FF7

every day its the same thing .ive given up on these guys

They're not gonna do it unless they go bankrupt. And when they go bankrupt, they will not do it becouse they gone bankrupt. Its a paradox. Now serious... errmm... I think I already got serious on the matter. Nothing to see here. Square-Enix is not Square. Sad but true.

I would much rather they finish their current projects and release a successor to a particular series (3 is a hint).
imahustla19  +   545d ago
I'd love to see a remake of FF7 and there's good reasons for it to be remade but I doubt it will happen.
Kratoscar2008  +   545d ago
I dont really want to, i like when we are presented a new cast in every new FF entry, so we can get to know them and love them. I want FFXV to be as epic as FF7 then make the Remake.

Square-Enix? Giving the fans what they want? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Damn you funny!

Make kingdom Hearts III so my girlfriends jimmies will be at peace.

Right, I want a remake of Final Fantasy VII, don't get me wrong, I'm not going to deny the awesomeness of such a release, however...

We are clearly aware now of the requirements and prerequisites that Square Enix have revealed for such a thing to happen. The Ex-CEO Yoichi Wada explained during the company's annual shareholder meeting that it would not remake the legendary RPG until it makes a brand new Final Fantasy game that "exceeds the quality" of Final Fantasy VII, and with the recent slew of games that has come out, I really don't see anything surpassing it any time soon. I'm not a FF7 fanboy, I don't think it's the best one, and I'm not blinded by it's success, however, it's clear it was successful and unless something tops it in regards to success and quality, then we aren't going to see a remake.

On the other hand, now that Yoichi Wada has stepped down as CEO of Square Enix we might well see some more fan service in some form or another. I really don't believe that we will NEVER see a remake of this game, but I don't see it being any time soon. I'm 22, and I can't imagine me playing a remake of this before my 40th birthday...

FFVII remake would make a great launch title for PS4
SlasherXI  +   544d ago
TBH they make something even better than FFVII.
That would be sick.
