CyberConnect2 President and CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama asked Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto if he is interested in a remake of Final Fantasy VII.
Matsuyama is a hero.
Seems more like a ploy to buy G-Bike "Want a remake...well buy our new game"
FF7 remake if it will ever happen will never be the same and will never have the same appeal,feeling and success as the original one ,IF the remake will be made from today 's Square Enix ...it has lost alot of talented people they dont care anymore for quality and they became alot like Activision and Ubisoft cutting the games into DLC. Are not the same company as Square soft...although FFtype0 and FFV director Tabata is a very capable guy as FFtype0 was an excellent game (having in mind that it was a PSP game)
G-Bike is free download though...
If it happens they'll screw it up anyway, Square died a long time ago just like Sega.
they've been trolling everyone about an ff7 remake for a decade. everyone thought the ps3 tech demo was going to become a remake and nope just more trolling squarenix gives 0 f*cks because rather than giving fans what they want we get trolled with FFXIII-2 and lightning returns
A ploy that I will 100% fall for.
I swear I remember a statement from an exec at square stating they won't make a FF7 remake until they make a FF that surpasses it. It seems like they're luring people in with a shady tactic.
Yup, that was indeed said. And of course, they haven't... Maybe XV will blow us all away.
FF7 remake here we come!!
For mobile platforms undoubtedly. No thanks.
Cool and bring it to Xbox One too!
NO , That would be insulting to the Playstation history and legacy FF7 was the reason PS is so successful and vice versa Absolutely should be PS4 exclusive no doubt , remember Sony E3 2005
Shinox- "NO , That would be insulting to the Playstation history and legacy FF7" .......Their FFVII bike game that they're making is for mobile devices. And FFVII was originally made on the N64. http://i.picpar.com/Iceb.jp... The deal for Nintendo changed because they ran out of storage space. Hironobu said that was the only thing stopping them from releasing the game.
But it's for IOS? No, thanks.
It's coming to android too.
They should develop it for the Vita as well IMO, since itt even has similar hardware architecture as smartphones (Arm Cortex CPU)
Does anybody want a remake? I dunno why but I think you can just go play the old game, noneed for a remake. I loved the game for what it is but the work they would have to put into the remake is just not worth it. At least thats what I think at the moment
1080P Gold saucer that is all.....
You can see that much sooner with FFXIV
I'd love to see a remake if it stayed true to the original game and didn't add any of the stupid crap from the Compilation (e.g. Genesis appearing during the Nibelheim incident). Sadly, Square Enix will probably screw it up :(
Luminous engine... final fantasy 7.... brb real quick........ ahem, compose yourself damn it lol! Oh mobile? Doh....
No, I'm going to concentrate on Final Fantasy XV first.
If they will make a remake of FF7 if I buy this game, then consider it done.
*Sigh* They are basically holding it hostage. "If you want that thing you've been asking for, buy this other thing you never asked for"
Exactly. It's so infuriating!
Trying to boost the sale of their spinoffs by putting it in the same sentence of a FFVII remake, sucks that it has to be done this way.
So they keep forcing us to buy crap to get what we ask for. Buy Kh 2.5: to see kh3 teaser Buy Final fantasy type -0: to play ff15 demo Buy ff7 g bike: IF it's a hit, then well make ff7 This pisses me off cause its holding what we ask for hostage forcing us to buy crap. This is bad because it creates the false impression that we actually want the crap like cellphone games or ff13-4
looks like imma buy it then. I really don't care if its just giving in to them, if it means we get a ff7 remake I'm all for it.
then youll get ff7...gbike -2 :)
I think I'm going to get it as well. The game play looks somewhat fun and the part in the video where Cloud and Tifa did the limit break is awesome.
Obviously the census around the Final Fantasy fans far and wide is they want a Final Fantasy 7 remake. I could careless about those little phone games bring Final Fantasy 7 to hear Aeris speak. That was great in Advent children and the movie looked great at the time, but with evolving technology they could make a Final Fantasy game that could look even better then the cg movie. I say do it right after Finafl fantasy 15.
I always click articles with FF7 in the title. That's how I do it.
Square Enix is nothing but a scam. They said the exact same thing several times before, and even after the games sold well they didn't do the remake. They just release yet another shoddy half baked game and use the same line to sell it. A year or two from now, they will do it again.
I think Matsumaya is just saying that so that people will buy his game. I don't think SE would agree to remake FF7.
This is a joke right? They're making their loyal fans look like ignorant sheep right now. They can't honestly expect anyone to believe that "we're focusing on GBike right now" bs. It's a FREE to play game nobody asked for!!! I have to say, SE has completely lost it. I know back in the day I thought it would be pretty cool to play a game like that, but that was back then. It also wouldn't be on mobile or f2p. I'm severely disappointed in SE right now. They're not going to remake the game everyone (well, many fans anyway) has been asking for to make excuses like they're focusing on mobile trash? The game itself may be "ok" but this is ridiculous. Also, I've never been a fan of rails games, which I'm sure this one is. I feel like if FFXV doesn't deliver we might as well count SE out IMO. Their focus is obviously not on making the fans happy and if they can't do that, they don't deserve our money. I'm not sure what they keep doing with all the money they get with all the re-releases when they cost so much (like $15-$20 on iPhone). I miss Squaresoft :(
SE already had the chance to do it when Before Crisis, Crisis Core, Advent Children, and Dirge of Cerberus made a huge success. But they only teased it with FF 7 demo for PS3. So no, F* SE. I will not buy this game :(
