FFXIV's Director Responds To Final Fantasy IX Remake Speculation, Clarifies Upcoming Studio Projects

had stated that the rumored Final Fantasy IX remake is real and that it will retain the classic turn-based combat seen in the original.

I hope this is true, that's what I want from a remake. FF7R is actually really good, but not what I was looking for from the remake.

FinalFantasyFanatic3d ago

FF7R deviated too much from the original for me, so I hope the FF9 remake is closer to the original game.

fr0sty2d ago

I didn't think so, I actually really liked the way they fleshed out the story more. I enjoyed it more than the original.

DivineHand1253d ago

I can't wait for it to be revealed and I am hoping it will not be episodic or simply a remaster.

neutralgamer19923d ago

Yes make one complete game with AAA game development taking 3-5 years for each game if it's another trilogy than we will be waiting a decade plua just for the complete edition

One game which should be done with all the content and add improvements where necessary

Rebel_Scum2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

You’re dreaming if you think these old pre-rendered background FF games can be remade in a fully 3D open world in 3-5 years with all the mini games.

FinalFantasyFanatic3d ago

I hope they keep the original art style instead of going for the hyperrealistic look like they did with FF7R, it would ruin the charm of the game otherwise.

MeteorPanda2d ago

Ffs can you focus on the goddamn mmo you leech.

The healers are going on strike cause you gave them a ONE BUTTON dps rotation. They have often nothing to heal.

You keep ignoring player feedback if it isnt jpn.

Stop taking our sub money and funding everything else but the mmo

jznrpg2d ago

FF9 is great I am looking forward to the remake.

Rynxie2d ago

Pisses me off how badly they screwed over ff8. That game deserves a proper remake. It was the first fully 3d final fantasy game.

MrNinosan2d ago

FFVIII is not fully 3d, and in what way do you mean it was before FFVII in the "3d verse"?

First "fully" 3d Final Fantasy was FFXI, even thou FFX was close.

FFVII to FFX uses pre rendered backgrounds (still images). In FFVII - FFIX, only worldmap was fully "3d".

My main complaint about the series is that it mixes Disney characters and Final Fantasy characters, but they are actually not important at all to the plot. I read summaries and watched videos about the series, even played the music game which tries to summarize the plot of each game, and the Disney and FF stuff are barely mentioned at all.
All the series really is, is an amalgamation of convoluted plots that tries too hard to be mysterious and edgy, with some cameos to attract fans of Disney and FF, who wouldn't care at all about the franchise otherwise.

Heck, even in the trailer above, the Disney/FF characters are... just there.
