Why would they skip VIII with a chance to improve it? All hearsay.

Goodguy0129d ago (Edited 29d ago )

Agreed VIII is very underrated and deserves a remake as well. 9 I think I understand though as it has a more cartoony style and should be easier to remake. As VIII has that realism look, it'd take eons for square to remake the game as long as VII.

JL293029d ago (Edited 29d ago )

I would say no matter the art style any complete remake is going to take the same type of effort.

I just don't see them randomly skipping a game either way, I think they had planned to remake all the PS1/PS2 games when they decided to make FF7 Remake. They are banking on nostalgia because their newer games aren't doing well.

I think it takes so long because they are far too ambitious with it

The overworld map dosent have to be exactly like VII Rebirth but more like an expanded detailed version of Ni No Kuni where you lord into a hub area. Add new locations, points of interests, secrets and they’d be good to go.

Also VIII had a lot of story elements cut from the original version, apparently there was a lot more Laguna and Disc 4 had way more to do when time compression happened.

@-Foxtrot

I agree, I love FFVII rebirth, but honestly, FFVII: Remake was I feel more focused, Rebirth is too open and too many things to do that at times takes you out of the story elements, add a few quests here and there, but no need (at least for me) to make it another Ubisoft open world game.

I really dislike FFX so I’m glad to hear this..
i hope they stay with FF8, a wonderful gem that never got any spin off other than a card game…

Michiel198928d ago

ff8 story is too much of a mess for them to remake it I think. Like out of nowhere you go to space and in the last disc there's the biggest exposition dump ever that there's an evil time travelling sorcerer in a castle you need to defeat. It's way less of a coherent story than let's say 7 or 9. Oh yeah and conveniently all the orphans lost their memory.

Regardless of that it's still one of my fav games of all time, I just don't see it happening.

I’d personally rather see an VIII Remake l, but IX is great to have, too. I’d just rather see the VIII world get the Remake treatment and it be more intense like when the Gardens collide for war.

Becuzisaid29d ago

Just let me walk around Fisherman's Horizon and Esthar. And the Garden battle was cool, but I also really like the scramble to stop the missiles from launching across the world then getting the Garden airborne to avoid them.

Balamb Garden.. what a name 😆

-Foxtrot29d ago

Apparently the VII Remake team would handle it if anything since some or most of them come from the team who did the PS1 version of VIII

Something along those lines

Although that doesn't mean they’d do it

Nerdmaster28d ago (Edited 28d ago )

I think Nomura couldn't find a way to ruin VIII's plot with bad timetravel and convoluted Kingdom-Hearts-esque cryptic stuff, since FFVIII's plot is already convoluted with cryptic stuff and bad timetravel, so he decided to go ruin another game's plot.

X getting a remake would be pretty cool actually. The original does have a lot of grand scale stuff which definitely wasn't possible on the ps2 so you could really tell it's outdated if you were to replay it.

And boy oh boy...a modern take on blitzball...

Square would unfortunately rid of the turn based though lol.

solideagle29d ago

they will divide it into trilogy as well...

Moegooner29d ago

Zanarkand alone in HD and large scale sounds epic.

solideagle29d ago

200% if any Final Fantasy deserves after VII it has to be 6.

AsunaYuukiTheFlash28d ago

Nah... I rather have IV than FF6 that one is overrated.

andy8529d ago

Memoria project on YouTube. That is literally what you need to do for FF9. It's beautiful

terrorofdeath28d ago

I watched that the other day. Stunning.

Zenzuu29d ago

Final Fantasy 6, and 8 deserves a remake.

Square should also bring back Parasite Eve as well.
