Yoshinori Kitase (Director), Motomu Toriyama (Planner), and thousands of fans are keen on a Final Fantasy VII remake. Now hear what the head honcho of Square Enix thinks about the topic.
If it's remade for PSP, I think Square Enix may well be burned to the ground by irate fanboys.
Most PSP fans are Ps3 fans as well. Sure, there would be disappointment, but it would be nothing compared to what would happen if the remake was announced for a non-Sony platform (remember, due to FF7 also being on PC there's that loophole).
Square-Enix is a garbage developer that only makes mediocre RPGs with zero innovation or vision about transexuals who save the world. They can kiss my ass. When a proper FF7 remake comes out, then I'll give a crap about this company. Until then, I wish they would go bankrupt. They are an embarrassment to old Squaresoft and Enix both.
I personally would laugh at a remake on the PSP. PS3, 360, PC or a PSP2 launch title I can deal with. I don't want some half ass cash in. Do it right or don't do it at all. I wouldn't even bother buying it if it was on the PSP.
Certainly. But what happens if its multiplatform, much less uses XII or XIII game engine? Offers no turn based option.
I guarantee this is why Square is taking so long to start work on one despite having a solid FF engine and a ton of fan requests and support.
I thought the main reason we wanted a remake of FFVII was to see it in HD graphics... wouldn't a PSP version kinda defeat the purpose?
No Mention of an Xbox360. :]
Hmm, I don't know anymore. FF13 has very disappointing for me story and character wise. The English dub is f*cking horrible! I think SquareEnix needs a decent team of at least 10 writers, producers and hardcore gamers from the West; not Americans necessarily, but professionals that can help them break out of the Japanese Highschool-only visual and spoken language thing. It needs to be more universal without having to be a Hollywood imitation; because that would suck too, I think. There's is nothing wrong with Japanese story telling or character development, in fact, most of my favorite movies and games are the product of the finest Japanese artists. However, taking into account what SE wants to do, it is obvious that they need to consider what I mention above, they seem to want more exposure for the franchise at a global scale; but this won't work with incredibly boring fighter dudettes and horribly lame kids. Hope? Vanille? Come on, guys; we are not 15 anymore... Ahem... Back on topic, FFVII remake would be awesome if they stick to the original magic touch and leave the Jp voice dub. Thanks.
a remake of ff7 is seriously scraping the bottom of the barrel. Imo VII is the best FF made. But let's just leave it at that. Making a sequel to FF7 is fine...But remaking it? That's just milkin the cow, while the cow (you guys) are squealing in delight begging for more... I can see fangirls going crazy over a next-gen sephy but...oh wait nm, forgot I was on N4G for a second.
absurdly unreasonable expectations with everything. You'd really find ways to pick apart and criticize every single aspect about the remake, just like everyone complained about XIII having no towns and NPCs amongst other things. I'd like a remake very much, but I almost feel like FF fans don't deserve it, because a lot of them don't appreciate the latest titles (12 and 13), which really aren't as bad as everyone's making them out to be. In fact, I'd say they're pretty good. Everyone's always making demands about how they should go back to the old-school style...umm, sike? Like you won't complain about how it lacks innovation and does nothing new if they were to do that.
If Microsoft announces an Xbox360 slim at E3, and Sony announed THIS a playstation 3 exclusive, Microsoft will not only be blown out of the water in terms of news, but Ps3 sales will skyrocket 5 minutes later.
Yeah but in Japan they'd be worshiped as kings again.
I would MUCH rather it be for PS3/360 than PSP. A PSP remake would be horrible. FF7 deserves better.
Sony does NOT own FF7. As much as I'd like it be a pure PS3 game there is a chance it'll land on the 360 if Sony does not take action and secure it by buying it out or something. FF7 is property of SQUARE if it was owned by Sony, Sony could get development for it on one of their own studios if they wish. Sony only owned publishing rights for it on the PS1. Dont know why you kids keep thinking Sony OWNS the IP because they DON'T. Just because you publish a game does not mean you all of a sudden own said IP. You can disagree with me all you want but it won't change the fact that Sony doesnt own it and you know they dont own it. But Sony is being just as stubborn. They know FF7 is huge and it'd be their trump card yet they refuse to pony up for it.
*IF* they do it right. Both the JP, EU and US versions.
Remaking it on the PSP would be unfortunate and flat out lazy. Not to mention, me and a few other million people would probably go apeshit. The PSTriple is where it's at. PLEASE.
No way it be Ps3 exclusive the cost of making it would focus SE to doing for the ps3/360. They could do a psp exclusive but they really just be a port of the game not a remake.
Will this ever just die
Wouldn't SE have to pay Hironobu Sakaguci if they made a remake of this game? I know the main reason they couldn't remake/port Goldeneye 007 was because there was too much legal stuff of this company owns this and that persons name was attached to that etc. That's the only reason it seems like they won't do it. The fan demand is there so I can't see why not to cash in on it, especially if they would go through all the trouble of making a FFVII movie!
@Lightsaber - Sony own publishing rights to FFVII so they could not release a FFVII remake on the 360 without Sonys permission not on physical media anyways. Since all 360s don't come with a HDD download would be pretty stupid aswell especially considering how big it would be. Sony won't give permission to SE to release on 360 and I think SE always planned a FFVII remake they were just waiting for PS3 sales to increase to make it worthwhile.
vhero let me say this as nicely as I can your a f*cking idiot. Sony doesnt own the IP of FF. The 1st 6 games were made for nintendo. FF7 was made of windows and it was published by Eidos (SE now own that too) Final Fantasy VII Advent Children was made once again by SE and in Japan it was distributed by SE sony had nothing to do with it.
PSP version would be the best thing ever forget the ps3.
for once, just shut-up PP
NEXT GEN: 3D LED TV'S Motion Controls Online Multiplayer OPEN WORLD RPG FF7 REMAKE Keep it for NEXT GEN Better Graphics then like modern CG graphics. AND please dont compare PS3 graphics with modern CG graphics loyalists. PS3 cant touch them but hey... keep dreaming.
I want it on PS3. <--- PERIOD
Agreed. But what I hate is that everyday I know they're not working on it, it's +3 years or so when I actually see it. 12
Remember when they said they were going to remake VII, VIII,& IX right before PS2 launch in Japan? (think it was in an issue of NextGeneration). Just give me a full remake of VI, I want to see Shadow and Kefka in HD on the XIII engine!
I do not want a remake just because of the chance of it being on xbox.
It will end up looking like crisis core SE don't bring it to PSP It will be a remake but not the ones people want. I can understand if they can't do FF13 graphics for it but please make it for ps3
this stupid man is the sole responsible of the failure Square Enix is this generation, all their games has been branded as "medium" to "mediocre" not only for the Xbox, but for all the other platforms too. They just wanted MS money, even if their products were not that good or polished they just wanted to takes Microsoft User's Money with their sh!t, they even gimped FF XII for the PS3 and made a mediocre port to Xbox. FF VII remake would sell incredibly, i cant understand why this motherfvkcer is so picky about it, the game must be remade and only for the PS3 if they want to do it the way its meant to be. Fvck this guy i hope he dies the most horrible way possible
Just relax and let me enjoy my FFVII Remake Xbox360 version of the game while you enjoy the Superior FFVII Remake version on your ps3. And we can be equally happy.
the extremely linear ff13 had to be put on 3dvds with no towns. square would probably blow it anyways.
You know man... you're right... I should not wish death on anyone, it's true, whatever the reasons of the company to proceed the way they did, it's not human to wish death to another guy. We already live in a really difficult world, daily several people die of starvation in several countries around the planet without anyone who cares about it. Feeling anger about a stupid video game is not the proper way to make things better. This was a strange day... first i felt sorry about Jim Starling... for being Jim Sterling... and now this... lol I'm afraid im going to become an Emo Final Fantasy Lead Character like Squall or Cloud.
And like why do you think like you deserve a FF7 remake bot scum piss off , like you dont deserve to play anything in your stupid trailer , like you already ruined one final fantasy game with yer piece of crap console.
pfft too costly? They'll make their money back 10 fold if they release it on the PS3.
They'd make they're money back 100 fold if released on the DS and PSP, which sucks.
psp/Ds games don not equal the price of PS3 games cost more but return more $$
I don't really have hope for this game if it's not exclusive. If you want to throw it on the Xbox 360, do it well after it's life on the PS3. Sony had better be looking at this game with their fcking 10th eye.
I really want an FFVII remake but I would like it on PS3 to see its full potential of what it could be but Wada think a ps3 version would be too costly when they could make the money back easly and even more profit but he thinks a psp version would be good when most psp owner have a hacked version now and could get the game for free would just be more of a waste of money to them.
I can see the little troll counting his gold pieces. There should be no question about platform. If there is a FFVII remake, it should be exclusive to the PS3, but Wada is all about the money. I hate the fact the The Spirit Within was ever made and allowed Squaresoft to merge with Enix. Wada is waiting to see who will offer the most money. I hope that it's true that Sony owns partial rights to FFVII. I know I sound selfish and don't really care. If a remake is done for anything other than PS3, I will not touch it.
Really? Even if it's good? Even if it's a exactly the way crazy and lame way you described in your other post? Even if the 360 and Wii only get the PSOne Classic or Tetris FFVII? You'd just sit there and pout because you won't use reason? Doesn't sound selfish just pathetic.
only on PS4..........that would be the deal!
ive never played ff7 but i know the story a little bit. now i've heard many good things about ff7 and how epic it is. i think it would be cool to experience ff7 for the first time in hd graphics. if its ps3 exclusive, i'l buy it day one. FYI i have advent children complete in bluray and its epic.
They have stated NUMEROUS times that they aren't going to do it. That's it'll cost too much and take too long. That they would only do it if it took a year to complete. Since they won't stick by their words and let the topic die (which fans won't let happen anyway) I no longer know what to believe. Just start making it already. Take 10 years. I don't care. I'll wait, because it had better be good. By good I mean perfect.
they already have the game design done. The story done. All they have to do is re-do the characters and levels, and I guess code, and that would be it. They can do that in a year or 2. I don't see what the big problem is. the ground work is already laid out. They already have a concept from gameplay to level designs and Character models to go on. Maybe they have to also do animation but it would take them less time, than making a new FF game. Maybe they just have too much on their plate to remake it. Thats the only hinderance I see.
If they want to add a couple of new towns, thats fine, but don't take away anything. If you want to add a new weapon in, somewhere, fine as long as it does not take away from the story. Give Vincent a little more back story , fine, give Cid and Barrett a little more, fine, give us a little more of Zack, Cloud and Sephiroth and a little less of Yuffie, fine, but do not take away the battle system, the towns, the world maps or the freaking HIGHWIND.
Ya definitely. I think they would have to make the battle faster and more intense though, but I think the core of the turn based battle system should remain. I don't want to see a FFXII/XIII battle system, even though both of those are pretty fun. I would almost be more excited to hear the redone music OST. Hopefully they would get Nobuo back to arrange the tracks, and possibly compose some new ones.
Add new towns? We'll be lucky to have all the originals since after all, towns in HD are too hard to make...
If there is one huge improvement/overhaul that i'd like for, it would be the Golden Saucer. More minigames, more stuff to do!
S-E is a company full of failures who can't even make a game above mediocrity these days. If they tried to remake FF7 then it would end up as a gimped joke. It's better to NOT ruin a classic rather than screw it up with some mediocre remake.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... this just sums it up for Yochi Wada wah wah wah wah
Also, if it's not a PS3 exclusive then it will be pirated just to see how crappy it is compared to the original. It will end up being like the Turtles in Time remake.
In FF7, almost every scene you saw was hand-drawn. Pretty much only the characters, and critical objects, were 3D. Making those backdrops as traversable 3D art would cost a freaking fortune. It'll never happen.
They're probably going to have to beg Sakaguchi to come back to do the job right.
Microsoft if you come to square-enix like u did with ffxiii , im sure you would get a ff7 game too. But it would be soley a microsoft version of a ff7 type game from ground up. But the well qualitied ff7 would be soley for psp and ps3. :D.
I don't get the fascination with remakes.
The passion in the series is dying..and greed is showing more and more in SE.now..I love FF7.I loved FF8 more though,im afraid if they remake FF7,they would make it linear,remove the world map and add voice acting.I honestly believe FF before X,not having voices was a plus.its sad though,clearly they think they can hold this remake story over our head forever,hold us at ransom?so SE can remain the king of JRPGS?live in the present!not the past! Invent new things,stop recycling what the Father of FF created.
For old times sake, I want my good memories of FFVII unraped. If they remake it, it will probably caters to casual crowd too. They will definitely add so many changes that will make all original FFVII fan RRRAAAGGGEEE. Just look at recent trends: Resident Evil, Splinter Cell, Call of Duty. Last thing you want is a hack and slash FFVII with rpg elements. Picture related
Just you never mind the cost of development. If you make it they will come.
I'd rather wait on the PS4 for a remake of VII, heres why. FFVII had what would have been a lot of cutscenes, were it not for it all being done rendered in real time with the 3D and no voices, the game has a world map, back then the world map was big, but they might have trouble making it all work and look good even on playstation 3, I don't know how to code games, but I would think programming a airship over a world map (and one that moves as quickly as the highwind moving across that world map would take quite a bit of processing power, VII's graphics were bad, I think largely for this reason with the highwind) if they waited till PS4 which has the possibility of using the holo disks from GE the space issue wouldn't be that much assuming they used the holo disks, not to mention that VII has a ton of towns NPCs and sidequests. Lastly, and something I think people will probably be 50/50 on is I think they should leave in the known glitches like the W-Item glitch, and barret/vincet overflow glitches it was part of the game, getting rid of it wouldn't feel right, same with the battle system, it should remain untouched, thats how VII was, thats how its remake should be.
Dissidia was absolutely great on the PSP and if they want to make a remake of FF7 on the PSP then let them do it, but I personally don't care too much seeing as how I would rather have a remake of FF6. FF7 is great and all but remaking it would be like George Lucas remaking the old Star Wars movies with a new set of actors. Unlike FF6 and everything before it all the 3D FF games have aged pretty well imo. Maybe when the PS4 comes out but for now they should just leave it alone.
dissidia sucked and i played it for a month straight for like 3 huors a day japanese and american version its just circle combos and then square
seriously, i would prefer a remake of either Crono Trigger or Xenogears. F#*2 FF7. Anyone else is tired of RPG full of annoying teenagers going throug puberty as they try to save the world? FF13 already has 2 annoying characters (vanille and hope; especially with the english dubing). I think JRPG developers should change the image of their main protagonists. Game like Lost Odyssey is quite refreshing because the game comprise mostly of mature protagonists. Kaim for example is wise, emotionally strong, experience, a family man, etc...i never once have to feel like my main characters are still going through their emo stage. Try to implement new perspectives on the characters SE, not just repeating the same formula.
a FF6 Remake.
"I asked Wada-san his thoughts about a Final Fantasy remake, perhaps a PSP one if he felt a PlayStation 3 remake was too costly. Look for the full interview later this week." I'd ask Wada to go away from SE. And if it will be something like FF XIII they can trash the project (if there's one). And over all... for PSP? Bah.... i want a remake with PS3 graphic.... ;((
Why do final fantasy 7 remake stories keep comin out. It seems like one comes out monthly now. SE must be bored and have nothin better to do than to troll FF7 fans >_> The vague wording they do in these articles/responses gets on my nerves too. Just say Yes or no for christs's sakes
when will this guy stop teasing and give us accurate firm details SE is really starting to make us mad it will be costly, of course but we're not expecting a normal game, we're expecting and epic one and if it did cost them money, the fan-base will cover that money + the newer fans from advertising and the kids who grew up and daddy gave them FFvii AC
My god i hope its not a psp remake. The whole point would be to see the graphical leap of 7 to HD, not to "slightly above the original" and on a smaller screen. I guess the rumor mill has started up again, lol!
I would choose a PS3 remake over a PSP remake I want to sit and enjoy the game in HD on a LCD tv not a little dinky screen like a handheld. While there at it remake some other classics like Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, and Vagrant stories.
