IGN: "We go hands-on with the classic Guard Scorpion boss fight in Final Fantasy 7 Remake."
Thats basically what is implied by Remake.
IGN trying to be cool and original... maybe they are trying to...."reinvent" themselves?
after watching all of the trailers. it's a retelling. particularly - spoilers Cloud strife doesn't meet sephiroth in midgar after keeping zack's sword. the last time Cloud ever met and last saw sephiroth was in cloud's home town Nibelheim. also Aerith doesn't give cloud a flower. someone accidentally bumps into Aerith making her fall down. Cloud then has the option to either disrespect her or sympathize. upon sympathizing she will then offer to "sell" you a flower. <--- the scene is complete changed.
*SPOILERS* To me it doesn't look like Cloud meets Sephiroth in this scene. Looks like some sort of flashback, as when he goes to attack Sephiroth he dissappears in to a mist. Much like the mist that swirls around Cloud and Aerith during their updated meeting scene.
it's not clear if you get to treat the characters like garbage once again in the remake. everything sort of plays out with everyone's typical choices. i would expect the choices to be the same. and if they're not it would be because of them making few sense to the story.
@ Kurisu "*SPOILERS* To me it doesn't look like Cloud meets Sephiroth in this scene. Looks like some sort of flashback, as when he goes to attack Sephiroth he dissappears in to a mist. Much like the mist that swirls around Cloud and Aerith during their updated meeting scene." SPOILERS- there are 2 sephs don't forget. by the time cloud meets up with Seph a second time (boat cruse ship) Seph is infected with a bunch of new abilities, including flying and vanishing. it could be a vision but you also never get to see seph for a while. his identity was meant to be a secret at the shinra tower.
Could have been a flash back. It's likely given that they're going into more back story for all the characters.
what they mean is it's not a 1:1 remake with only updated visuals. aside from the gameplay they must have changed quite few things to cope with were we are today. let's see.
you're not supposed to know Sephiroth's identity in midgar. he was originally a secret for a while. so yeah, SE changed the original story. the remake is a retelling.
IGN should buy themselves a thesaurus, and they'd see that they just contradicted themselves.
Its a remake, nice try.
....& I like it!!!
Well it’s not called Final Fantasy VII Reinvention now is it
It's a remake, get over it.
reimagining or not. i would have found it wayyyyyyy more interesting if they put all these resources into something fresh and original. the workload couldn‘t have been bigger.
Personally I would have been happy with the FF7 remake using this game engine, but keeping everything else the same. I loved FF& back in the day, the combat system was perfect, the story was perfect. This though is some sort of FF7 Redux that will come on 2 discs just for the Midgar section. Square Enix don't even know how many chapters this game is going to be over, this could go on for four or five chapters.
I'm just glad FF7 wasn't my favorite cause if it was, what they've done with it would really piss me off.
It's a hd remaster
Let's hope IGN never walks into a naming brainstorm for a video game.
Reboot. Remake = 95% just upgraded visuals. Maybe some additional content or a few tweaks to improve cetain mechanics, but no fundamental changes to the gameplay or story. Reboot = Traditonally involves having the same characters and story for the most part, but with near everything else completely overhauled/modernized. Reinvention = Prey 2017, Tomb Raider 2013, etc. Same name, but essentially a completely original game. Usually called Reboots by the devs because it sounds better.
Day one for me. 2 discs for just episode 1. That's amazing. Square Enix said each episode is a full game on its own. Capcom did it right with RE 2 remake. I see Square Enix is going to make it right too with one of the most beloved JRPG of all times.
And how many episodes are there? SE don't even know yet. This is going to be one expensive game.
People pay more than that for games that are pathetic. I don't care about the money. I care about playing a good game. I am a fan of this series.
curious if we still get dialog trees; like when cloud is at seventh heaven at has the option to say something like "It is always nice to sleep with you" (Or wake up with you or whatever) Same for the dating choices and all that.
