Last week Square Enix reiterated once again that despite the long radio silence Final Fantasy 7 Remake will still release as multiple games.
I'd make it bloody turn-based, I know that much!
wont work in today's game play but an option might be ok
"Won't work in today's game play" What does that even mean? Are you saying turn-based games don't work anymore? because that is complete nonsense if true. My two favourite RPG's this gen are turn-based. Dragon Quest 11 and Persona 5.
You want a turn based ff7 it's already available, we on the other hand want new hotness
Who is "we"? Because you certainly don't speak for a lot of fans.
@BinaryFans He speaks for plenty He speaks for the people who have spent the last 4 years being interested instead of whining
It's never been my cup of tea the final fantasy series and I understand they have millions of fans but shouldn't they just move on now from final fantasy?
well it would be on multiple discs, the parts where it would require the next disc would be close as possible if not exact point as in the original. It may not be possible since everything is so enhanced compared to 1997. Yes the capacity of the disc is increased along with technology but whether the same amount of the game fits on the disc accordingly is unknown at this point. However many discs this will take. It will be sold TOGETHER. Yes just like the original. There will not be an option to buy the discs separately. Even the case for the game is made like the original with a manual in colour detailing the game mechanics. and finally a message from the creators as a thank you to the long time fans and their patience in waiting for this project.
3 parts, jenova birth, jenova life, endgame. sidequests for every part.
By disc would be the obvious choice surely.
Part 1 would probably end with aerith dying from sephiroth.
Exactly, I would just have it as one complete game. If this is going to be in multiple parts like Final Fantasy 13, then I'm expecting them to make big changes to the story to streach it out into full games. It's getting to the point where this is looking like it's going to be a failure in terms of being the remake fans of the original wanted. It seems to be less and less like the original the more you read about it.
It’s well past that point, it’s like the director thinks the original game sucks.
I wouldn't split anything. Make it all one game and leave it at that. If it take multiple discs so be it
Perhaps depends on what areas get increased. Perhaps, part 1 is just Midgar if it becomes big enough. Part 2 ends at the end of the originals disc 1 and part 3 is discs 2 and 3 from the original. Although I've seen somewhere that it will only be 2 parts in which case I'd say part 1 be disc 1 and part 2 is discs 2 and 3.
only makes sense to end it like they did the original; with end of disc one. every disc that ended was like closure of an episode. Aerith's death will be a perfect ending to the first episode.
Definitely a good place to end the first part but I think it'll come down to how many parts are being made. If there's 3 parts, not sure there's enough to make another 2 parts if the first ends with Aerith because the 3rd disc had very little content while the first was like 2 full discs of other ff games. Either wa, just make it good and I'll be happy :D
they are doing it to make money while the rest of the game is still in development, wonder how much each episode will cost and how many hours of content in each.
before aeris dies and after the 3rd disc was almost nothing... splitting the game into episodic content is bad enough more than 2 episodes covering the same story from FF7 would be unacceptable and i wouldnt buy any of them. if there are some new stories to tell then its a different story. but no more than two for the original story *assuming they release above $40 per episode
I wouldn't and I wouldn't take away or change the turn-based combat either I'd remake it in one complete game with added content.
aerith death makes complete sense
I wouldn't. I'd make it one complete game. Can't fit it on one disc? Do what Rockstar did and include a disc that carries the extra data.
First part should definitely end with Aerith's death
I like this proposed structure.
Easy, butcher the game's story and limit the open world.
The Remake is more a Rebirth. It's the same game but much more expanded probably. Each part is going to be its own full game.
