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...

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🤔😁

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.

"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.

FishTank6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

@ tech
agreed. he isn't supposed to show up until way later into the story.
i presume they did it mainly for the fans.

It looks like the game they would have made if they'd had this technology back then. Bang on.
