After playing through the latest port of Final Fantasy 7, this time on Nintendo Switch, we take a look at the big scenes we can't wait to see remade in glorious Ultra HD and with brand new character models and animations.
Oh this game is still happening? lol
This game is never happening..
They better not fuck up the Nanaki/Seto bit
Not going to bother with the Bender laughing link.
Looking forward to hearing Heidegger's laugh tbh.
Good old Kya ha ha and Gya ha ha!
I agree! I'm re-playing the game now on Switch and had completely forgotten about the Seto scene, so the moment Nanaki learned about Seto's true end hit me like a ton of bricks. Such a great moment!
You *REALLY* better get use to waiting... Should be by now honestly.
Its Duke Nukem Forever syndrome. Fans want this game so much for so long, when it finally manages to exist, it turns out to be everything the fans did not want it to be thus ruining the magic that the original had because its been that many years- videogames and expectations have changed so much. Cyberpunk will be out before this and that is a very very long wait as it is. Should of left it as a fantasy at this rate. We are nearing the end of this generation. Its too late. What they going to do? start over Again?
Just waiting to see how they handle the honeybee part
I can't wait to see how they get Red XIII into a shinra uniform to sneak onto the cargo freighter leaving Junon, or maybe they will just retcon that whole thing. Seeing as how a realistically portioned lion/cat wouldn't be able to fit into let alone walk in a shinra uniform lol. ... this is assuming the game ever happens tho
They'll probably change that in some way to be less silly. There were a lot of silly moments in FF7, which wouldn't fit as well into the newer more serious tone that they've taken the lore since Advent Children.
It's a bit sad how serious the Compilation has been since Advent Children. One of FFVII's greatest strengths is the funny/goofy humor. I'd love to see Nanaki in his ShinRa uniform, Cloud riding Mr Dolphin, or some of the sillier parts of the Honeybee Inn.
I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that they are stirring clear from the compilation and AC. Going back to how the original ffvii was with Cloud not being so... Er, "AC" Cloud, hence why we got those updates about character designs being reworked again shortly after the reveal. Also who is to say this remake doesn't just retcon the whole compilation since it is know SE will be adding more to the game than there originally was? Throwing it all out and making them not canon.
The only constant has been that they aren't making it a scene by scene remake. I'm sure there are going to be changes from the original content regardless of if it's canon or not. I don't have any problem with them working in the extended lore if it makes sense, I would just like a good game overall. The multi-game release format doesn't even bother me so long as each game is a good length for the money. I also hope they don't screw it up with things like MT or what not.
I don't have anywhere near enough faith in this remake to look forward to anything specific. If they show us some footage that looks like they know what they're doing then maybe some optimism will be sparked.
