No worries; according to Tetsuya Nomura the Final Fantasy VII remake will retain one of its more lighthearted elements despite looking dark and gritty now.
This makes me so happy for 2 reasons. It shows they don't plan on changing the original story too much. But mainly that they are keeping the more light hearted moments in the game. This is one big reason why older games are fondly remembered for their charm, while new games are discarded because they are often far too serious. Let's not forget some of the zanier moments in FF7: -Cloud dressing as a woman -Fighting a house -Kicking Red XIII in the face with a football repeatedly -Escaping Aeris house without making the floors creak -Fighting an giant icicle - Honey Bee Inn -Tifa's catfight with Scarlett The humour gave the game so much charm. I'm actually pleasantly pleased and trusting that they'll handle the remake well I still feel like I'm dreaming
You also can't forget these classic moments: -Palmer getting unexpectedly hit by a truck -The Gold Saucer stage show during Cloud's date -The fact that the date can potentially happen with Barret -Riding Mr. Dolphin And of course: -"Let's mosey!"
I'm mostly excited for the amount of content they'll end up adding to the game. By the time they're done creating all these assets from scratch, they'll have no choice but to add more content. I honestly do not care if I have to pay tens of dollars on DLC by the end.
@Qrphe "I honestly do not care if I have to pay tens of dollars on DLC by the end." Lets not get crazy here... It's a remake of a game from a beautiful age when there was no DLC. How about they just make the game add stuff if they want and sell it at one price. It really breaks my heart (honestly) to hear people asking for DLC.
This news pleases me also. I too was concerned that they might try to make the game more serious along the lines of Advent Children and cut out more of the sillier stuff. Good to know that they still understand the charm of FFVII. I still think they'll revamp the battle system though. We'll see soon enough...
Final Fantasy VII despite it's humor is quite a dark game. The new trailer makes me think it will be a bit grittier which is fine by me. I am glad that the silly parts will still be in it. THis is going to a visual spectacle too. Can't wait to seem some footage in the near future.
Good! Was concerned they would eliminate the derpy parts.
Lol the picture of Cloud when you click the link! xD Fingers crossed they don't back track on this!
Would have been funny if it was just a picture of Lightning. Actually, if you blur your eyes and cock your head sideways a little, it does kind of look like Lightning.
Good. Was going to skip the game if they had removed that
INB4 "Square-Enix are attacking trans people by keeping the cross dressing scene in the game."
I like that they are keeping the story elements intact, but I would welcome additional interpretation, or a variant on the presentation ala Metal Gear Solid the Twin Snakes, hmmm isn't Kojima like a free agent now? (just kidding, actually I'm not really sure how I feel about that), or they could just use the same Versus guy, Ryuhei Kitemura.
what about the giant hot tub orgy LOL
You know what I wish for for this scene? If we have any save file from any FF13, we should be able to find Lightning's outfit and wig and if we have Cloud dress up in the entire regalia and when he steps out of the dressing room, he turns into Lightning and Aeris has some witty comment about it.
