"But we can't have these upgraded, beautiful 3D models of Cloud and Barrett, still lining up in a row, jumping forward to attack an enemy, then jumping back to wait for their next turn. That would be bizarre. Of course there will likely be changes there."

This is fine. Make the turn-based combat look natural. Just don't make it an ARPG.

The wait to see gameplay and make sure that's all he's talking about is going to be torture...

You and I both know the remake needs to be an action rpg after advent children theres no other way they can go

kalkano1155d ago

Bull. That's the only thing they can do that will make it fail financially.

I can't imagine how hard it will be to upgrade this entire FF7 world but I'm so happy they are undertaking this task.

This is my most anticipated game.

No turn based combat, FF7 already did that. Give us FF15 gameplay and the ability to play as all party members and trust me, it will literally destroy the classic FF7, make it happen Nomura.

kalkano1156d ago

No action combat 999999 games have already done that. See how it goes both ways?

I enjoy FF15's combat much more than any of the others dude, wouldn't be a very modern Final Fantasy if FF15's combat in superior, the perfect system for this generation.

But hey, we'll see what happens.

Action is in no way more "modern" than turn-based. Whether or not it's "superior" is subjective. Deal with it. XV is not even a Final Fantasy in anything other than the name slapped on it's cover.

FFVII is known for it's combatsystem. Now, making it different is just that, different. If you want to make something retro, stay with the basic concept.

everything else is up to the developers.

Dude im with you, Action rpg is the way to go for the remake....This topic is going to split the community in two lmao
