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.
they take Final Fantasy to a whole other level over there :D
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?
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
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.
its a Sequell called FINAL FANTASY VII: ENDLESS CRISIS here are some evidences GENESIS WAKE UP on his SLUMBER http://www.youtube.com/watc... Trademark from SE back in 2007 Endless crisis: Final fantasy VII
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.
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.
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.
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.
You liked 12? Most of the people Ive spoken to regard it as the worst ff game ever. Edit main series
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.
Ow no sorry dirge was horrible I meant mainline ff titles not the sequels or spin offs. LOL chocobo racing
move on everyone
Don't really need a FFVII remake, We need a next gen Kingdom Hearts!
Word bubbles to you MJ
But hopefully another entry in the series, similar to Crisis Core.
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.
I would have liked a remake but I can live without one I suppose.
I can imagine this announcement has crushed many a soul.
No chance it will ever happen folks. Life goes on.
a FF6 Remake!
I would like a IX remake personally... however this is only wishful thinking neither of these will happen.
i agree.. ff6 have better storyline than ff7.. btw thnak zeus gonna not ruined this game in remake of mult plataform.
Or at least bring FFIX to the PS store. The best FF.
YES! someone who agrees finally. lol FFVI is soooo much better than VII. Let's not talk about emo Cloud and badass Sephiroth for once, and let's move on to some way better characters like Terra, and Kefka. Kefka did what no other villian ever accomplished. God, just thinking about VI makes me want to replay it again, such a better story.
Perhaps a remake won't happen just yet. But with so many fans begging for one, I won't be surprised if it is eventually made... If only because Square Enix know it'll equal massive sales.
thank zeus.. the crap square not gonna ruined the classic game in 360 rrod mult games ;)
@helghan666 i again with u; multiplat will ruin it. Playb3yond
"Nomura says not to expect a full revival of the beloved classic anytime soon." To me, that doesn't mean NO. It means "anytime soon" meaning Nomura is concentrating on Versus right now then his next project. Square said the compilation of FFVII would last for 20 years, putting it at 2017. So, there's still hope but it's clear nothing "anytime soon" is coming. So let the rumors start happening in 2013. :)
The amount of money that can be made on this is fuken stupid, so if they dont make a remake it's just dumb on there part.FUK square enix .
they have no reason too a ff7 remake won't sold better than their games actually does the KH games are selling like crazy and ff13 sold a loot in short they are already making a crazy amount of money and can do a remake whenever they want if ( one day in the future ) they have really a problem . not counting the money they do form DQ.. even their new franchises makes money for them ( blood of bahamut ) it's actually quite logic for them to do new game intead of remakes ( ff3 and ff4 remakes are a different case )
I'd rather see a remake of FF VI than FF VII.
how about some totally new games instead of remakes Sq-E.
good to hear and all, but goddamn it Nomura, gives info of Versus XIII already!!
Square is a company that makes decisions at the top of the food chain. If the Big Wigs at the top say No FFVII remake then it's never gonna happen. Well I'm over it. I would some of the other lesser known Squaresoft JRP's with new installments.
Thank god! Someone at square enix still have a head and does not only think of getting more and more money!
Just let it go ffs.
It's SE's cash cow. It's always in the back of their minds.
I understand that a videogame company’s goal is to make profit and not necessarily to make all their fans happy…HOWEVER it really baffles me to know that squaresoft…(ahem) I mean square-enix wont just make this DAMN game!!! I MEAN COME ON!! If every damn day for like the past decade the majority of your customers are asking you to remake one of your most popular titles why not??? Its not as if its risky, the remake would sell very well and squenix would benefit greatly from it. They could even do PS3 bundles. We all saw what happened when FF13 was released in Japan, I’m sure plenty of Americans as well as Europeans would fork over the extra cash. It just doesn’t make any sense. Why continue to push out games that will produce mediocre sales (yeah I’m looking at you Neir and Front Mission Evolved.) I really wish they would either redo Chrono-trigger or at least make a sequel. I think square has relied too heavily on the FF series over the years.
Nomura you missed your window man! The nostalgia train has been losing steam. The release of FFVII on psn definitely quenched my thirst of a remake. Now what we need is a sequel! Get it right please.
Never would happen.
x-2? is that not core? i never played it, but it happened!
Its really up to Sony. Since they own the IP of course. Sony also owns FF8, FF9, and FF10.
Wow....this news really upset me.
i think its better just to move on its a classic for a reason come up with final fantasy XV with the team that made six and we got a winner
after that movie i say we just leave it alone
These guys must hate money. If you made a remake you could kotick it and charge twice as much as regular throw in a key chain and still be one of the highest selling games this gen. whoever is in charges of actually being profitable over there since squaresoft died and this crap hole squarenix was formed sucks at their job. They have provided nothing for the fans they make a bunch of crappy off shoots in the series throwing the final fantasy title on a bunch of sub par games just to get some sales and have yet to make one impressive entry into the series. maybe 13 will change my mind but it doesnt sound like it.I don't see why you don't just get the team together remake ff7 fix all the translation issues make what you believe is the ultimate version then let it truly be the final fantasy.
Oh well. At least we have the PSN release of Final Fantasy 7. That's better than nothing.
Final Fantasy VI remake plz
