Yoshinori Kitase recently said during a Famitsu interview that a Final Fantasy VIII Remake would require a younger development team.
WHAAAAA So...there's a chance? I mean sure, once the FFVII is totally finished and then they start actual development of FFVIII which would be like what? A PS6 game at this rate but at least there's a chance. Holy shit can you imagine the Garden Battle done today, even all the little nitpicks people have dug for to put the game down they could fix. Main one is maybe add more things to the build up of them loosing their memory, maybe Irvine is shown that he remembers them straight away but keeps it to himself when they don't show any acknowledgement back, let us explore the world during time compression fully with more quests, then you could possibly add the Rinoa is Ultimecia theory to make that "perfect" ending bitter sweet.
"once the FFVII is totally finished" BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...!!! (When "lol" just isn't enough). Then again - somehow - you totally forget that this is Square we're talking about. If this FF7 Remake "series" shows any level of traction, I imagine they'll announce similar for FF8 at the very least.
In other words, show Ff7 remake some love, claim ff8 remake 😍 and it will happen
@bouzebbal: No. I mean if the second of nth parts to FF7 Remade sells well, Square wont be able to control themselves. They'll start talking up, rumor mongering, doing action based "Remades" of as many FF entries they can get away with. Which will be all of then. Nevermind that the first of those efforts, FF7 Remade, likely will never be truly finished so long as a new "part" is put out that sells.
"maybe Irvine is shown that he remembers them straight away but keeps it to himself when they don't show any acknowledgement back" It was foreshadowed in disc one when he began panicking when he had to pull the trigger on Edea during the parade. I'd rather they keep the twist subtle instead of outright spelling it out.
I agree, maybe add a little more subtle hints here and there throughout the story up until that point to foreshadow it more, there's a lot they could do on top of this, plus nobody is mentioning the best part about a remake, a majorly upgraded TRIPLE TRIAD!!!!!!
I think if that was the case then they should have hinted at it more with interactions, but obviously at the time with graphics it couldn't be hinted at with body language and facial emotion. The fact he couldn't do it last second seemed it was more it was about another thing with what he said during his chat with Squall. Even if he said later when the truth came out during the Orphanage scene, "It's the real reason I couldn't shoot her guys" or something along those lines then I could have bought it more.
All I can think of... Esthar city.
I hope they go with 6 instead. I mean they talked about it before and given the detail of there 7 demo i'm really for it now being they added classic mode. FF6 aka 3 on the snes is by far the best story they told in my opinion. I love 7 and 8 but 6 in my favorite.
Kefka made 6 for me for checking all the boxes of a great villain something alot if ff games don't do for example in 7 sepheroth is to kool and likeable to be a great villain great character sure but a villain isn't meant to be likeable Kefka is ignoring an obnoxious and you know he's a winner also witch is super rare also what I'm trying to say is I vote for 6 as the next remake f
NO! 8 is routinely forgotten, left out in the re-release schedules (or added in well after, like with Switch releases of 7 & 9, but no 8...hmmmm), and given a bit less love in general. Let us, those who love 8 the best of the PS1 era FFs, have something...for once!
The classic mode makes the combat akin to FFXII, not the original FFVII. Nothing wrong with FFXII system, though!
I would honestly love that. FF VIII is such a phenomenal game. It's a shame that the game was so heavily overshadowed by FF VII.
I’d wait for Square Enix to fully complete the FFVII Remake before suggesting anybody get excited for any full scale remake The only other remakes Square Enix can do in the meantime are lower scale 3D remakes of 2D games such as with Trials of Mana.
Especially considered how long they took 15 lol. for 7 I think I would take another 5 lmao
I'll be a senior citizen when & if that happens. LOL!!
How bittersweet the timing would be. One of your childhood favorites playable again in the twilight of your life. Just this time, it'll be in like...80k definition...and in roomscale hologram-o-vision. Well, the name will be the same at least lol.
FFIX remake in 2030?
Coming Soon to PS7 the final chapter of FF7 remake part 28.
Basically he don't give a fxck about FF8. He's like i'm out, you kids have fun!
FFX Remake next pls. It only makes sense it's where all the money is at after FF7 and has the largest fanbase after FF7.
Agreed agreed agreed :D
I used to think this was the next best final fantasy after 7, until ive been playing the remaster and now i think the whole GF junction bit is so boring i barley wana load it up. Also wierd is I hated final fantasy 13 combat, but recently played that again and now really love the combat. May be my old age and my taates are changing I dunno
I'd rather see FF6 remade......
it also would require well enough ff7r sales which is not a given at this point.
Nice to see Half Life 3 has some genuine competition finally.
If they are doing the remakes, please let another dev team within Square Enix handle it and not let us wait until the FF VIIR team is finished. There's a chance that I will be a grandfather by then, but well, maybe the grandkids will relive time compression for their era...
My Dream is to one day play FFX Remake. Completely open-world and real-time battles. That is the remake I'm most looking forward to :D
Crystal clear Besaid waters, real-time controllable summons like Bahamut and real-time Blitzball like FIFA.
OMG YES! And have sin roaming the planet in real time. You would need to be careful not to get too close to him. And I can just image controlling the airship and fly it to Besaid and just jump from it into the Besaid's beautiful waters.
I feel disgusted when square thinks that they and we have all the time in the world to just wait years and years for ff7r to fully complete first, then after that we wait a longer while for them to maybe consider that they will make an ff8r with "younger Dev team" and said Dev team during the beginning of the start of ff8 development will become as old as the current ff7r team, do they have the concept of "people aging and dying" or do they think we can play their games from the lifestream
Uhh no thanks. Square thinks they can rip off their consumers for the sake of nostalgia
Man, I wish they would! I'm having a blast with the Remaster. Easily one of my top 5 favorite FF games, but I will admit if I had a choice between FF6 Remake and FF8, I'd want 6 to be remade over 8.
I would love to see full remakes of Tactics, VI and IX
I have something to look forward to for 2038.
