We need to talk about Final Fantasy VII

From GamesReviews:
"So there it is. The news that many of us have been waiting for since 1997. 18 long years. Square Enix announced at E3 2015 that we are finally getting a Final Fantasy VII remake. A proper one. Not just updated graphics or shiny new cutscenes, but a full remake with new gameplay and, so we are told, new story elements to boot. Many key members of the original Square Enix (then known as Squaresoft) team are back on the project that sold over 11 million copies worldwide the first time around, and the internet is currently at breaking point from the excitement of it all."

Makes you wonder of they will add to the new FF7.

The storylines for before and after FF7 will get some sort of input or if they will change anything major to the plot.

Good time to be a gamer.

SugarSoSweet1248d ago

I hope they don't change anything major I like my FF7 story the way it is!

Um Random battles would be so awful to stay in, meanwhile the whole Materia thing was amazing and still would be. I think they understand what should go and stay...I hope.

PS5 Launch Title :P

I'm just glad of its announcement so far. We'll have to wait for winter to hear more I guess.

Hold_It1248d ago

Probably 2017. It's the 20th Anniversary of FF7.

Fingers and toes crossed.

A remake of this scale would require a lot of time and effort. I'm sure SE said at one point that a remake would take about 10 years if they did it. How long ago was that PS3 tech demo? It was at E3 2005. If they've secretly been working on that build since then then 2017 could be a real possibility.

EDIT @ TheOne

Yep, it could take that long! :D

It isn't going to take ten years man lol. The game has been confirmed to have been in developement for that last year and a half. That may be helpful to people who do not yet know that.

[email protected]: Yes I know they said that at one point but that was for last gen consoles and is honestly completely ridiculous to even believe. Yes this game is going to be massive and they said they are going for photo realistic graphics but ten years is an exaggeration and I don't believe Kitase was even serious about that.

No they did start a year ago max , the actual FF VII team was working on FF XV before .

"So there it is. The news that many of us have been waiting for since 1997"

Many of use have been waiting for a remake the same year it was originally released?

Spotie1248d ago

Some gamers are a little TOO forward thinking, it seems.

SouljAx3601248d ago
