Dotemu: "Twenty years after Final Fantasy VIII original release, we're proud and honored to team up with Square Enix for its Remastered Version that will hit PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch this year."
Smashing news! Dot are great at what they do!
not good imo ....already from the demo is shown that have lack of skills to redesing the characters ...they all seem the same, (squall , zell , irvine) with not much anime aesthetic like original
That's probably Square's input though. The aesthetic is very similar to Square's Dissidia character models, which is how Square have been portraying all the FF characters for some time now.
"Not much anime aesthetic". They look more "anime" now compared to the original.
why would they redesign the characters? its a remaster, not a remake.
Not familiar with this studio.
They specialize primarily (but not limited to) in porting console/pc games over to mobile devices.
Jolly good show mates.
Are they redoing the backgrounds cause i heard the original hi res were lost?
I heard that too! I heard quite a lot of the original files were either lost or not usable.
They seem to be only redoing character models. And just cleaning up the rest of the textures for the BG.
While I can't speak for consoles, if they're not improved, hopefully the new ESRGAN background mod for the game can be quickly modded to PC release. But it'd be rather pathetic (and unsurprising) of SE to call it a Remaster and not improve them. Everyone deserves them, not just PC.
Just waiting for a FF8 remake announcement.
Iam with you
Sadly I don't think this will ever happen. FF7 is the biggest title in the series and its taken this long just to get the first chapter which is probably going to span close to 10 years not including the development time before hand, to release fully. FF8 was always my fave and the only FF I ever finished.
Its ynderwhelming. Its basically the same game with redone cutscenes and sharper text. I was expecting VA too, to be honest.
None of the remastered older FF games have had voice acting added to them.
I just want a release date I am really itching to play this game again.
