Square Enix's recent announcement that they would be bringing classic Final Fantasy to the Virtual Console was greeted as good news all round by fans, but the details of the announcement have led to some interesting speculation.
I don't know about this. I think you need a bit more concrete Info before you can assume this is what's happening. E3 isn't that far off we should find out soon regardless.
That's a fair comment, really. It's just really some interesting speculation where the evidence we have so far does make the situation seem potentially likely, so thus it's in the rumors section. :)
About time, FF3 = best FF game ever! Get to hammer Kefka one more time...and see General leo die one more time also... *sob*
No spoils dude, there are people who didn't finish the game!
How about skipping the DS instead... dont get me wrong the remakes so far are good , but i'd hope for something better for possibly the best FF to date . Either PSP , ps2 or ps3 ... And we all know it will probably get a long while to get a new remake with better graphics afterward , if the ds one is released . FF7 is the only one for sure with a next gen remake planned for some future .
I agree. The DS just doesn't cut it graphically nowadays and there is absolutely no use for the touch screen as it is a typical RPG. However, a full blown remake wont cut it on the next gen console either due to the high cost so I think the best solution is to release it on the psp, ps2, wii, PSN, xbox live simultaneously for maximum profit while not hampering the graphics too much.
For me if they were going handheld I'd like to see 5 and 6 on DS and 7-9 on PSP.
If I were SE, I'd still do 5 and 6 on DS, as the engine is already done and has proven itself. However, before being done with these, or as soon as they're done with them, they should do 7 to 9 on the PSP. Let's face it, SE will most likely never do a 7 remake on a home console, all they want to do is to make some quick cash with these titles, and the easy way to do it is by putting it on handhelds, due to low dev costs and huge install base. However, putting 7 on the DS would be a downgrade (visually), which is why I think it should be done on the PSP and give it a graphical overhaul, like the one they can give to the older ones (1 to 6) on the DS.
FF6 is by far the best final fantasy game ever. Nothing comes close to it. My favorite game of all time, period.
My sentiments exactly. Agreed 1,000,000% It's THE RPG of all time, at least for me. (and you lol)
I agree that FF6 is the best FF of them all (although FFT comes damn close), which is why I would much rather see it get a next-gen face lift if they feel they have to remake it. Just sad that it didn't/doesn't get the recognition that FFVII gets (don't get me wrong, it's a great game too). About it being the best RPG (or game) of all time, for me that goes to Xenogears.
Final Fantasy 6 was the best. I hope they do a PSN and XBLA HD remake of it =D
PLEEEEEEEEEEASE GIVE US FF7 FOR PS3, or at least tell us that it is never going to happen. IMO ff7 is still the best game ever made and this no 1 minute maybe the next is killing me. They keep hinting that they are interested in making a remake, but won't unless the original team do it. DAMN IT JUST GIVE US A YES OR NO ( preferably yes :D )
Nooo i love FF5
i would love a remake of ff6 i would really love if it was on the Wii, but it would be great if it was on the DS too
I'm sick of the damn remakes. Am I the only one who thinks that FFVI was freaking perfect they way it was and that a 3D remake would only be taking away from how damn gorgeous the 2D graphics were?
I'll take FFVI any way Nintendo wants to give it to me, however, I do agree that such a classic title doesn't need a huge 3D remake. They could just do some minor upgrades like Chrono Trigger DS.
How about not a 3D remake. But an insane uber-2d remake that looks 3D but retains the classic dimension but with obvious graphics enhancements to the characters, spell effects, etc. etc. Then again, that's too good and SE isn't going to do something that nice.
@sarcasm Yeah a quality upgraded 2D FFVI would be awesome. A bit off tangent here, but I just realized the image used for this article was a prelim for FFVII for the N64, before it was scrapped in favor of the PS1 version.
about time they remade this one. its only the best FF game made.
If it's a remake i hope it doesn't use the ff4 engine. The graphics aren't bad but the 2d sprites for ff6 are so great, i'd much rather see that game 2d anyday over 3d. That is unless it was a ps3 psn hd remake. I'll buy it regardless though. Also, if you own a ps3 and wanna play it, just order final fantasy anthology off amazon, its like $15 brand new and it has ff 5 & 6.
