Listen to this man Nomura! I don't care if you remake the game for PS3 or NGP! I don't care I just want this remake!

the man himself has spoken. FFVII deserves a HD remake
Kee  +   1599d ago
Well, Kojima is the man... That I can't argue with. But SE would probably fluff it up with their recent track record. They need to de-merger and be squaresoft again. Back when it was all about taking your time and putting out a really good game. They've gotten too corporate.

Nomura needs to make it, with help from Mistwalker, and help from Kojima to make some scenes even MORE epic!

conveniently leaving off certain systems from your list.....

playing it safe or smart?
rockleex  +   1599d ago

When Nomura makes a game, he only makes it on one system.

If he re-made FF7 then the PS3, or NGP, would be the most likely candidate if you look at all the previous FF7 games.

FF7 - PS1, PC
FF7 Dirge of Cerberus - PS2
FF7 Crisis Core - PSP

Finally some common sense spoken and from who else but Kojima San himself. Look there is only one game that i truly want a remake for at anytime and could sell a console. That game is FF7. No doubt about it. If it is not on a Sony platform though they can expect backlash. Necessary or unnecessary..... gamers will decide with their wallets.
Godmars290  +   1599d ago
I'm in the "no" camp because I've lost faith in Square. They've become too focused on presentation and graphics. Haven't had an idea what story and character development is since FFVII.
miyamoto  +   1599d ago
Actually they are more focused on profit quantity not the product quality. Very very unlike Kojima-san.
Otheros00  +   1599d ago
Not Nomura though. His games are always released on one platform. Nomura doesn't port games only remake them. Like he did for re:coded and chains of memory for ps2.

Nomura and most people that are working on FFvsXIII are part of the team that made FFVII. So, I don't think it will be gimped if remade by Nomura.
BubbleSniper  +   1599d ago
I think Sakaguchi needs to play a roll in the remake for the most obvious reasons.


the key people, aside form him are still there @ SE, I think.

Go crazy with the boss fights, add new weapons and such.
Don't gimp the combat for the story, keep the pace the same!

i read years back that they are not all there, over half of them are at capcom or nintendo. The original guy who preety much made ff games great isn't even there anymore. He owns mistwaker studio. I was preety sure all this was common knowledge now. I still like to see it remade tho.

Agreed. Square couldn't make a successful remake as they are now.
abc1233  +   1599d ago
Surely that should be precisely why SE should be making it? The story and character development is all there, it's just the graphics and presentation which need reworking. Even though SE has many faults, making games with poor graphics and presentation isn't one of them
HINDERIZATION  +   1599d ago
i think that ended at FFIX imo
TheDivine  +   1599d ago
Me too but i say no just because its not needed. It still looks good enough and plays well. Its not even the best ff or jrpg i dont know why people love this game so much. Id rather have a new ff than one remade that ive played and know the story already hows that fun? Its nostalgic yes but id rather have a new hd zelda than a hd ocarina, make NEW games. If its changed up people will hate it, if its not its the same darn thing so its pointless. If they must remake sumthing remake vagrant story, xenogears, chrono cross something people might of missed.
DeadIIIRed  +   1599d ago
Exposing the game to a younger generation is why I support it. You ask how is a remake fun. Think of it as watching a favorite movie in black and white, and then into color. I'm sure there is a movie that you've seen more than a few times.
baodeus  +   1599d ago
I don't think new generation would like JRPG (well just based on the current trend) as much. There are still some old times gamers (me for example) buying them for nostalgic reasions (some traditional JRPG are actually really good like Lost Odyssey), but most just kinda moved on or something.

I'm not ditching JRPG or remakes of great titles, but if they can't make a new JRPG with same caliber like before and people keep asking for remakes instead of new IP, then what they said about JRPG is dead might not be that far off. What are we gonna do, keep playing different remakes of FF7?

Kojima: Hey Nomura...I think you should...you know..finally remake that FFVII game since your fans are constantly asking for it.

Nomura: Hey Kojima...I think you should...you know..finally patch in trophies into MGS4 since your fans are constantly asking for it.

Kojima: ....

Nomura: ....

We have hit a stalemate.

lol , but people saying they will play mgs for trophies is lame , why you play games ? .. for trophies or for fun and to see good story ?...

ps1 and ps2 days are gone , i love these days , all have fun playing the game , now people only collect the games , even i who don't want to collect trophies i do it , i dunno how , but i always look at the trophies , it's stupid but it's like playing cod , i can't stop playing cod but the game always the same..

Tell Kojima you'll do it if he makes a MGS1 remake.


Yeah :)

MGS1 already has a gamecube remake, but i think he is expecting one with the MGS4 engine.

I think Hideo Kojima needs to talk with Wada instead xD
user858621  +   1599d ago
I think Nomura has enough work to do as it is with Kingdom Hearts 3D, Versus 13, Kingdom Hearts 3, remaking an old game is probably not his highest priority atm
elbeasto86  +   1599d ago
Am I crazy for wanting Kojima to do the remake instead? Or at least bring in his studio to rewrite the story and have Square just do the graphics and mechanics?
Armsgraph  +   1599d ago
yess ff7 needs a remake with an updated story because they added all that stuff with Genesis in that big ff7 compilation after advent children not plus they have remade every ff before 7 like a million times its time to move on to 7,8,9(i never played but i know some one wont mind a remake)etc

oh btw mgs4 trophies ≠ ff7 remake
trophies wont make mgs4 better
maybe a mg or mg2 remake not trophies
KwietStorm  +   1599d ago
I think the argument is just that they're both something people have been clamoring for. It doesn't make sense to say MGS4 trophies do not equal FFVII remake, and there is also no reason they can't do MGS4 trophies AND an old Metal Gear remake. Trophies don't take the same development time as an entire game.
Armsgraph  +   1599d ago
"Trophies don't take the same development time as an entire game". yeah thats why i think they not equal.but yes they are both something that people have been begging for.i feel that getting trophies for mgs4 wont really bring in more sales as a ff7 remake would.i really don't care for trophies but i don't understand why they haven't done something that simple either.
richierich  +   1599d ago
Just when you think Kojima couldnt be more smarter this guy is a total genius SquareEnix could learn a lot from him
josephayal  +   1599d ago
best rpg ever
YES! cant wait for the XBOX 360 Version with exclusive DLC
Darkseeker  +   1599d ago
You can be sure that if a remake happens, it will be on a sony console exclusively, as they partially owns the original FF7.
user858621  +   1599d ago
they own publishing rights not the game
Darkseeker  +   1599d ago
Yes they own the publishing rights, enough to make it impossible on another console.
BABY-JEDI  +   1599d ago
Call me crazy
But I would like to see a remake of FF7 but with the hand to hand combat system of Vagrant Story (weapon upgrade included) as this system was pure genius ; )
Yangus  +   1599d ago
FFVII remake coming NGP,maybe new N console.
Not ps3-
Darkseeker  +   1599d ago
Square-Enix won't do it. Looking at FF13, they're too lazy to make a game like FF7 with HD graphics.

Doesn't matter if people wants it or that it would make them tons of money, it seems they are on a level of stupidity on their own.
