No Final Fantasy VII Remake – Says Nomura

In the recent issue of Famitsu magazine, they did a big section on Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife and how a Final Fantasy VII remake is out of the picture.

HHG talked about this 2 or 3 months back. He said that FF7 would be "remastered" this year as opposed to being remade. Time will tell if he was right...

HHG is a liar, anyone can speculate. He even said something like there will be a DJ-Hero 2, really?

sinncross3189d ago

Funny you mention that. Do you remember when that surfer girl and skater boi had their blogs?

I remember asking whether FF7 would be remade and he said that it would receive a remastered version only.

lol weird

Digitaldude3189d ago

Why should they? I played FF7 for the 3rd time a year ago and found it fine. Its aged well and it would be a waste of time and money. Squeenix need to use their efforts to bring us decent RPGS unlike FFXIII.
Concentrate on Versus Nomura.

where are all the posters who were saying it was real now lol

FFVII needs a remake. The pre-rendered backgrounds looks too washed out and the character models even when rendered in CGI are a total mess... When comparing graphics between FFVIII and FFVII it is like comparing 2 games from 2 different console generations.

here are some evidences

With S-E's current trend of redoing old FF games I find it hard to believe that a remake of FFVII won't happen. Maybe it's my insight into their current trend of remaking games on the DS and such, but I don't see it as such as impossibility.

wada has a stick in his ass with sony. I doubt we will see any remake for the ps3 until he gets fired since sony has all publishing rights in the us for 7.

ally123453189d ago

I don't know what you're talking about Digitaldude, because FF7 has most certainly not aged well.

FFVII is still a great game storywise. But its hard to get modern day gamers to play it because of the way it looks. hich is a shame because its a game well worth playing.

mastiffchild3188d ago

Well, I realise nearly everyone who loves the original was, and remains, mightily excited by what SE showed at E3 those few years ago but is it really a bad thing if they DON'T remake FF7?

Remastering would make sense so that newer gamers picky about the aging l;ooks of the PSX title may have more of a chance to get into what still is one of gaming's best plotlines. Besides, doing it that way wouldn't risk upsetting any hardcore fans over any changed details(large or miniscule!)as they would be unavoidable with a full remake, imo, and think of the wailing about FF13 changing things a bit!?? The noises if Nomura and SE messed about with Aeris and Cloud too much(or at all) might be deafening. In short, remaking the game would risk annoying as many as it might please.

Personally, I doubt that asking devs to remake games is a wise move anyway. We give them the idea we're happy to play the same thing over and over and th number of rushed rejhashes we get could be unstoppable! It's great to revisit old times occasionally but don't we get enough with PS1 Classics, XBLA remakes like the new PD and VC on the Wii?

Whatever, given the choice I'd much rather Nomura got Vs and The Third Birthday out of the door at SE than try, firstly, to get a new FF7 to live up the THAT footage's quality and also risk upsetting half the gaming world if he did anyway!So, though I realise a lot of people will be disappointed at him saying this, maybe it's not a bad thing, no?

I see. Ok but you better be right on the money with Versus!

Good,no need for it in my opinion it's perfect the way it is on playstation. Not to mention what was the last really good rpg Sqaure-Enix made? FF10? I know FF13 is out in Japan but I havn't played it so I'm not going to pass judgement on it.

camachoreloaded88063189d ago

You and a bunch of other people might not have liked it, but overall it was still very well received by critics and gamers alike.

97gsx3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

You liked 12? Most of the people Ive spoken to regard it as the worst ff game ever.

Edit main series

ally123453189d ago

Wow. Worst FF game EVER? Sure FFXII was pretty bad in comparison to FF titles in the main series, but was nowhere near as bad as sh*tty spin-offs like Dirge of Cerberus.

97gsx3189d ago

Ow no sorry dirge was horrible I meant mainline ff titles not the sequels or spin offs. LOL chocobo racing

Don't really need a FFVII remake, We need a next gen Kingdom Hearts!

DJ3189d ago

But hopefully another entry in the series, similar to Crisis Core.

Pozzle3189d ago

I won't be surprised if they make another FFVII game. The Dirge of Cerberus secret ending left a few unanswered questions. They need to be answered.
