Today Square Enix revealed a brand new trailer of the massively-anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake coming for PlayStation 4.
it looks freaking fantastic, they're even keeping in the quirky stuff. Summons might be a bit weird since all the summons in the original game appeared after midgar...
goosebumps, goosebumps, awesome stuff. I hope its not a short game :)
Omg what a sensational way to end the day.. I love this.. Don Corleone, fitness training lol... Great memories!! Shiva 😲
Lol I said the same thing when I seen Shiva. I should go replay it, but I think I'll like to be reminded of things I've forgotten in HD🤔😁 3.3.20
Not sure, but I think I read somewhere that each of the "7" games will be around 40 hours on main story alone. Then there's sides, grinding and mini games as well.
Placing second half stuff in the first half is kind of my biggest fear too. Namely Sephiroth. I thought part of why he really clicked as a villain, was that he didn't even come into the fold until the tail end of the first half. And they've already show him to appear in Cloud's "visions" numerous times.
bro all the humans on the earth knows about FF VII story by now, so we shouldn't think about it anymore :)
I have a feeling they will use Clouds visions as a build up for his mental breakdown initiated with Sephs doing the murder of you know who #spoilerfree :P. I always asked myself why Cloud just stood and watched Seph do it when he is "all mighty" and can jump around in a split second. The explanation could be in his visions - at the time Seph is slowly gliding through the air with Masamune, Cloud could think he is experiencing another vision. That would be a darn good reason for a slow reaction for which he will blame himself later.
The great thing about sephiroth is that he's a deep and interesting villain, he actually has a believable motivation beyond "Humanity sucks therefore I have to kill everyone to save humanity!" like most other Jrpgs. I'm sure they'll pace his development carefully.
Not sure what the big deal is about that though. Before it's was just a disembodied voice in his head. But in 1997, that voice was a mystery to the gamer. Now it makes sense to show that Cloud isn't just hearing voices, but seeing Sephiroth in his head, as well. If you think about it, it actually plays very nicely in what will eventually lead to the Reunion and Cloud handing over the Black Materia to Sephiroth. We're seeing the first seeds of that here, and I like it. And they put summons in the Midgar section of the game. Big deal. If they're going to turn it into a 40 hour game and say this is actually the next proper Final Fantasy after FFXV, then there better be summons in the game. It's not like they're integral to the plot, and only with a few do you have to do anything "crazy" to get them. If they added Knights of the Round here, I might be a little miffed. Part of the fun was the lengths you had to go to with breeding Chocobos and then finding it on some far-off island. But seeing Ifrit and Shiva early? Hell yes. Who cares?
The sephiroth stuff may all be the stuff that happened before the whole Cloud joining avalanche thing. It's obvious they're going to be going into more of the back lore.
😯 This looks unbelievably good...I think it just became my most anticipated game for next year...
Nebaku "Namely Sephiroth. I thought part of why he really clicked as a villain, was that he didn't even come into the fold until the tail end of the first half. And they've already show him to appear in Cloud's "visions" numerous times." exactly!!! his identity was supposed to be kept for the later parts of the game. with this now in focus i wonder if the plot reception will have as much impact. hopefully the new writing is enough to compensate the story. new branches in narrative.
@ tech agreed. he isn't supposed to show up until way later into the story. i presume they did it mainly for the fans.
Probably didn't want a full release without summons
oh my god, this game keeps looking more and more amazing and this is only part 1!!! god, I am so happy this is a thing!
It looks like the game they would have made if they'd had this technology back then. Bang on.
Absolutely phenomenal! I'm speechless at how amazing it looks.
I don't understand how can people not be excited for this? It looks freaking amazing. The fact that we will get multiple games of this quality is crazy
Just bitter idiots and fools, that have no true meaning why they even hate it.
I love all the disagrees, yet not one comment about why they hate on the game. It's clearly shaping up to be something phenomenal, and we are getting a much more fleshed out Midgar section! I'm all for it, I'm also glad they're adding in more (possible First Class?) Soldier members. Seemed a bit weird that Sephiroth and Cloud were pretty much the only remaining members in the original.
Any exclusive gets dumped on by people who are going to be missing out.
I don't think it has anything to do with exclusivity. It's more that people placed their judgment on the game when it was announced, and aren't willing to accept they might have been wrong, and that Square is doing it justice.
Nebaku - it has everything to do with exclusivity. Any one that loves the original, is at the very least going to give this a shot - if they own a PS4 that is.
Just blind hate because FF7 is popular, this looks ridiculous
Xbox fans are downvoting everything as they're clearly salty. This looks amazing, can't wait.
Episodic release Whenever I watch a trailer and get very hyped, I remember it is an episodic release and my hype drops hard
But if this is a good 40+ hour game that you have a ton of fun with that just happens to end on a cliffhanger, it's still worth it to me. My only thing is... what if Square Enix doesn't get their stuff together and release the next episodes in a timely manner or they never actually get made. But still, even if that happens and this is good, it still doesn't stop it from being a good game. Just an incomplete story.
It's not even that, it's the fact that we had all this hype with Final Fantasy XV and then look what happened I'm not saying it's going to end up like that but people acting like people are stupid or wrong for not getting sucked in straight away like them is ridiculous. People are cautious for a reason.
Not episodic They're all full games
FF13 was trash, FF12-2 and 3 both trash. FF15, 10 years of hype, awesome trailers and to say it was a massive disappointment would be an understatement. FF15 was an open-world game filled with nothing but gas stations and like 3 or 4 linear dungeons. Then the last few chapters are basically a movie, a time skip. The end.
If by "FF12-2 and 3" you mean FF XIII-2 and 3, then I agree. 'cause you know, there is no such thing as FF12-2 or FF12-3. And FF XII was actually a pretty good FF in my opinion. But FF X-2 was also a piece of trash. And coming to think of it, FF X wasn't a very good FF either...
When people were upset long before they really saw anything worthwhile, it calls their motivations into question. Nowadays, people think that anything different than what they may want is no good, instead of maybe it'll still be good, even if different than what they want.
I know right? I just bought FF8 remastered and although it's nostalgic to play, the random battles (I know I can turn it off) and the turn based fighting (I know I can speed it up) are so annoying. It would have been stupid for them to have made the FF7:RE to be a direct 1:1 copy.
frog + sword = chrono trigger remake confirmed? ;-)
It looks fucking awesome!!! I'm glad I pre-ordered the ultimate edition that comes with the action figure!!!!
LOL what a tool.
Hey man, if he has that kind of disposable income and it makes him happy, why not? Who shat in your cereal bowl today?
LOL!! What a hater.
zodiac909 - wins knob of the day.
Ahh! Nostalgia just hit me like a freakin' freight train. This looks amazing! The Turks, Don Corneo, Cloud and Tifa doing mini-games in the Wall Market gym, the frog status in battle, Aerith's fancy red dress....wow! Just wow!
Agreed it looks amazing. I also love how the "Punisher Mode" command turns into "Bubble Breath" when turned into a frog.
I hope they still include the slow moments of the game, because those were the ones that truly captured my imagination and heart. The action was all cool and great, but I really loved the mysterious and emotional the most.
I just know by tomorrow we'll see the articles about how Don Corneo is somehow indicative of what's wrong with gamers and shows the industry as misogynistic for some reason. I thought it was pretty cool, showing that it'd still be there, and seeing Aerith and Tifa encouraging him to go through with dressing up like a girl and the look of reluctance on his face was priceless.
looks really good, if we can just keep the ethics team away from it should be fun. Tempting to get at launch, but might wait until next gen arrives late that year to see it at its best.
amazing, cant wait fot it. im currently replaying FF7 original and am loving it. Its interesting to see how they will differ in terms of spacing also weird to see summons in midgar
Yup sign me up.
Man this looks .. aghhh so good i can’t wait to play it ! But wait forbes said no game this gen can match Gears of War 5’s graphics .. :/ sorry FF7, Death Stranding, TLOU2 , Ghost of Tsushima, Cyberpunk 2077 you lose.
None of those have close to Gears 5*'s graphics
Haha keep crying. All these look better. Just wait for TLoU2.
Unless "TLoU2" is on PC, why even mention it?
This looks 10 times better than G5 including the graphics.
Gears 5 got worse scores than Gears 1, 2, and 3... SAD!
Rapidfirepunches - G5 looks shiny - everywhere - shiny, light doesn't bounce off surfaces the same. You can keep G5.
You're right. They're so far above Gears that it's not close.
I wouldn't count Square out. They often set the standard for graphics with their FF releases. FF13 was actually no exception, although they did drop the ball with FFXV.
IGN 8.9 "Not Bathesda style RPG"
Gears5 downgraded a lot to get those graphics. Pleanty of videos showing Gears2/3 have better animations, physics and details.
Everything looks so good except for Tifa. She's out of the party as soon as I get the chance. Who wears two sports bras as an outfit? So dumb.
Please get lost
You're complaining about two sports bras being a dumb outfit in a game where your team includes a guy with a gun for an arm, a guy who dresses like a vampire, and a robotic cat riding a giant stuffed moogle??
2 sports bra outfit was designed by Square Enix's own Ethics department, gun arm was not.
Exactly!! Some folks really need to think before they speak!!
I agree that the SE ethics department is problematic though.
And not a single soul cares
looks great, day 1
Looks absolutely amazing! GOTY material!
