Final Fantasy VII Remake finally has a release date and while it might feel unreal now, keep in mind that this is just the first part in the series which means it won’t cover the full story from the original game.
I'm 27. The last release should make for a great 40th birthday present.
Lol. It’s funny because it’s likely to be true knowing Square.
https://thelifestream.net/w... can't be a proper remake without changing discs. lol.
@ TheRealTedCruz - "I'm 27." can't be the real Ted Cruz if you're 27. only reason why i disagreed. jokes aside, the game will have a sooner date. midgar was the biggest city next to junon.
Stop playing you know we’ll be on the PS9 when the final episode releases.
Excuse you it is well known that the cruz family line has acess to time machines
^ KZATB isn't wrong.
We’ll have remakes of the remakes coming at that point. Each episode of the remake will be split into 4 parts.
Release 03.03.2020 :)
LMAO im 31 same
Midgard story has been expanded but it's just a fraction of the story They are gonna need at least 3 more episodes to complete the story.
Hard to really say how many episodes they will need to complete the story as each episode could have more or less content.
3?! You're being generous. If the entirety of VII-1 is just them dragging out the Midgar scenario, I'm pretty sure VII-2 will most likely just be you getting to Kalm and Cloud's fake Nibelheim retelling.
They already stated that it will be a 3 part story. A couple years ago Nomura came out and said it during an interview. Can't recall the source though
Your interview is outdated and you can't even recall the source. Jason Schrier of Kotaku just interviewed Nomura and he admits he doesn't even know how many parts will be. I'm guessing he actually does have some idea but won't say it otherwise people will just keep quoting him like its gospel.
Midgar is like 15% of the full game. This is going to be more than 3 episodes. If not then they will screw up the pace of the game compared to episode one. Also walking from Midgar to Kalm would take like 10 seconds with no fights because of the character size on the world map. How would that work in he remake? Is that going to take like a 15 minute walk or more? Most of the map is grass so will it all be grasslands? They can still screw this up badly if not done right.
@Lionsguard Fair enough, I was just giving him what I knew. If it's outdated info though, thanks for clarifying. Regarding source, I don't usually write down every URL I come across, as I have more pressing matters to waste my time on.
Personally, midgar is so interesting but the original game didn't give us a possible a chance to explore if that has been expanded I am more than happy to buy the deluxe edition.
I don’t do chapter content... maybe when it’s all done I’ll play it (on my PS9).
"I want the hard work of 10 and on going years worth of development for 40 bucks in the sale bin at gamestop" Thats all well and good but this game is not ripping people off with the standard game purchase.
Sounds like that's precisely what they're doing - taking one of the most iconic games ever made and padding it with unnecessary filler in order to charge a minimum of $180 for the full story... Meanwhile, the Witcher has a 200-300 hour campaign and it's made by a frikkin' indie dev! Hell, even GTAV (which cost $300million to make and market) retailed for $60! Anyone who buys part 1 brand new is effectively sending a message to publishers like EA and Activision and telling them that it's okay to pull this kind of $#!t...
@poppinslops ..bro....give me all the filler. Witcher is a fantastic game but ff7r is pushing the graphics heaps more. more data = more space. With games nowadays you have to sacrafice something to make profit...square has decided to sacrafice nothing. did you just call CD project red...indie? they own gog. dot com ffs.
Technically CDPR are an INDEPENDENT developer - they cut deals with Warner Bros and Bandai Namco in order to get Wild Hunt published outside of Europe... But that's beside the point - which is games like the Witcher and GTAV represent real value for money, whereas I cannot remember the last time Square Enix released a AAA title that didn't try to screw it's fanbase for extra $$$! RotTR's exclusivity, Deus Ex's 'Augmented' pre-orders, episodic Hitman, FFXV's so-called Season-Pass and 'Royal' editions (niether of which give players the full game) and now this $#!tshow... and y'all just lap it up because of your precious nostalgia! "Give me all the filler" indeed... Be careful what you wish for!
@poppinslops Whether or not CDPR is independent or not is moot. They are still in fact a multi-million dollar studio. Don't make it like they're two dudes in a garage selflessly making a 200+hr game. Furthermore, Witcher 3 is much easier to do. 1.) There's only one guy you control through the whole game and 2.) They have more freedom, Square has to get the FF7 world just right considering that we've been through it before, we have expectations that things still exist in some form or other.
"did you just call CD project red...indie? they own gog. dot com ffs." Do you not know what "indie" means? A developer can be huge and worth multi-billion and own other companies and still be an independent studio. Now, to your point, poppinslops made it sound like CDPR are just a small group of guys getting together in their free time and making games, lol. Which certainly isn't the case.
Being a huge fan, I'd rather have a hugely expanded multi-release remake. I mean you could get 1 game, condensed. Or several, expanded.. for someone who love the series, I say the more the better. Also, just because you think the Witcher 3 and GTAV are good values, doesn't make it true. That's a very subjective claim, and I'm sure you, me and every other person on here would disagree on which games we find the most value in.
@poppinloops FF7R will shit on W3, W3 has shit gameplay, poor graphics compared to FF7R and much more smaller underwhelming scale of story stop kissing CD Projekts ass. We know youll buy some episode of the remake sooner or later cuz you cant resist fuck boy and when you decide t do fucking dont cause youre a hypocrite
its the same thing as for example the original (and probably new) GoW saga you dont really kill zues until the end of the third game, and complete the story this is no different lol
Yeah, it's not for people with an IQ of 50+.
You will buy the game when it releases despite your crying.
Of course he will. He just wants some cheap internet attention
*The Crowd Roars* Please, somebody get this guy a cookie. He apparently needs to feel special.
Part 1 just sends shivers up my spine God knows how long until the entire remake will be available, or even when Final Fantasy XVI will out
That’s cool and all...but when we getting Final Fantasy XVI?
I hope its 3 episodes but I wonder how long it will take till we get Episode 2?
Hopefully 2021 or early 2022
2022 most likely.
AK91 I hope you’re wrong
Shouldn't be too long of a wait. Most of the development time for the first part was clearly spent trying to get the graphics right, the character models, combat system, fine tuning the engine, etc. Now that they have it all in place, it's just a matter of creating the content from here on.
Gonna be a pretty underwhelming final boss if it's the thing you fight at the end of the highway. Maybe a shuffle of events will see Sephiroth throwing Jenova BIRTH at us early-on? I'm curious about how much they're going to fluff the plot if what I would expect to be at least a twenty hour experience is going to stop-off at Midgar's edge. A huge, free to explore city chalk full o quests would be ideal, but if FFXV's city zones are anything to go off of, I'm not expecting much beyond a few corridors and courtyards.
Putting me off because of the length of time with each episodic turn.
Is it really that long of a game?
The original FF7 was a 40-50 hr game on average. The Midgar section could be completed in roughly 4 hours or so though. People are concerned on the development time for this project because it’s taken them this long to develop about 10% of the original game. Hopefully with a lot of assets already made and the game mechanics all there, development on future installments will be much shorter.
It's not that the original game was insanely long. But with the remake they want to expand on the game and the story. Midgar is a massive place, and yet we barely saw any of it in the original game. The city will be fully explorable, and the story content in that area will be much longer.
At least 60+ hours from what I've heard
This Sephiroth's face doesn't appeal to me at all. check the original ff7 artwork of him, that's Sephiroth.
Its exactly the same, dunno what youre on about nitpicky as f
Then you should probably change your name tag to MoleofLucis or just cavefish, easier that way.
i guess kitase is so high on crack and surrounded only by „yes-men“ that this idea had just to get greenlighted for no reason. rockstardom is funny but when such a thing like ff7 remake is the result one loses faith in the whole industry.
It must be really tough for you to comprehend that other people have opinions that are just as valid as yours. Maybe when you grow up and mature a little, you’ll understand.
You sound like a cuck, btw his opinion was awful, you dont even need to respect trash like that
Nope. It doesn't bother me that people have different opinions. What bothers me is when this guy who claims to be a gamer never has anything good to say about any games. Everything makes him lose interest in the industry. So then why is he still a gamer? HOW is he still a gamer if he never has anything good to say. Seriously. Look at his comment history. He's not someone tonbe taken seriously. He's the very definition of an internet troll.
Not much for the episode route. I'll wait til it's all in one. Plenty of games to tide me over.
Oh no, This is GAAS PS4 timed exclusive.
Its not online you moron
Brain : - 10%
Personally, I would have used the gathering in Kalm as the cut off point. The first trip there, where they all digest what's happened, and what's about to happen. Very curious as to how they deal with the world map. FF VII was huge back in the day, but by today's standards, how do you justify leaving Midgar and bearing right to reach Kalm merely a few seconds later? I have faith, but the world map is what I'm most curious about.
if it's a 3 part series then it's a pretty safe bet when the second part ends. also, ending with the escape from midgar means that the open world element of ff7 starts with the second part so i expect part 1 to be pretty linear.
I think that's a fair bet based on the original. But to be honest, I don't know what to expect anymore. I certainly wouldn't have expected a part that was only about 4 hours of gameplay in the original to take up 2 Blu Ray discs worth of space lol. I don't think people realize just how much data 2 Blu Ray's can hold.
Hoping it's full of content and a 40 to 50 hour experience, if any of you remember this wouldn't be the first game based in one city, Dirge of Cerberus did this first and it was a full game.
And yet SE sayd that part two will not take so long to release as part one. So exaggerating the next release of part two is of the scale😉
Hmmm. If it comes in 2 Blu-ray’s maybe one will be the data disc and the other will be the game. Square is going to have to work feverishly to get the other episodes released in a window where the fans don’t start to become discontent. This doesn’t need to take 10 years. I’m wondering how much will it charge for each additional episode- and I’m assuming it’ll be digital add on launches/patched in
My biggest issue, even if I also love more content, is that the story will be unplayable. You will never get a sense of completion by this and whenever FFVII-2 gets released, many will have to replay FFVII-1 to remember what, why, when, how for FFVII-2. I would rather wait 10 years and receive the full game. I would also easily pay 180 bucks for it at that point. But ooooh, no, then SE wont be able to charge you for all the DLC, other random MT, merch, you name it? Inbetween these Episodes and as others have already mentioned. 80% of the people in here wont be allowed to complain when every major publisher or studio begin releasing episodic games. Retarded.
Final Fantasy 7 - Remake, Part 1, and a half - (Minus DLC) / Not Remastered Version 0.5
This needs to stretch into the PS5 console and be enhanced for it accordingly
As much as I loved FF7, please don't just fluff the game up to make it longer than need be. The original game's length was just fine the way it was.
I can't wait for the holographic remake in 2065. None of you know what that means yet, but you will...you will.
Ill buy it when I get the entire game for 40 bucks. They can milk other people with this episodic crap. I'm good.
midgar filling an entire disc doesn't make any sense.Square enix is taking y'all for a ride
