Listen to this man Nomura! I don't care if you remake the game for PS3 or NGP! I don't care I just want this remake!

tehpees32712d ago

the man himself has spoken. FFVII deserves a HD remake

Kee2712d ago

Well, Kojima is the man... That I can't argue with. But SE would probably fluff it up with their recent track record. They need to de-merger and be squaresoft again. Back when it was all about taking your time and putting out a really good game. They've gotten too corporate.

Tetsuya Nomura tells Hideo Kojima to make MGS4 trophy patch.

Nomura needs to make it, with help from Mistwalker, and help from Kojima to make some scenes even MORE epic!


darthv722711d ago

conveniently leaving off certain systems from your list.....

playing it safe or smart?

rockleex2711d ago (Edited 2711d ago )


When Nomura makes a game, he only makes it on one system.

If he re-made FF7 then the PS3, or NGP, would be the most likely candidate if you look at all the previous FF7 games.

FF7 - PS1, PC
FF7 Dirge of Cerberus - PS2
FF7 Crisis Core - PSP

Finally some common sense spoken and from who else but Kojima San himself. Look there is only one game that i truly want a remake for at anytime and could sell a console. That game is FF7. No doubt about it. If it is not on a Sony platform though they can expect backlash. Necessary or unnecessary..... gamers will decide with their wallets.

Godmars2902712d ago

I'm in the "no" camp because I've lost faith in Square. They've become too focused on presentation and graphics. Haven't had an idea what story and character development is since FFVII.

miyamoto2712d ago

Actually they are more focused on profit quantity not the product quality. Very very unlike Kojima-san.

Otheros002712d ago

Not Nomura though. His games are always released on one platform. Nomura doesn't port games only remake them. Like he did for re:coded and chains of memory for ps2.

Nomura and most people that are working on FFvsXIII are part of the team that made FFVII. So, I don't think it will be gimped if remade by Nomura.

BubbleSniper2712d ago (Edited 2712d ago )

I think Sakaguchi needs to play a roll in the remake for the most obvious reasons.

the key people, aside form him are still there @ SE, I think.

Go crazy with the boss fights, add new weapons and such.
Don't gimp the combat for the story, keep the pace the same!

phantomexe2712d ago (Edited 2712d ago )

i read years back that they are not all there, over half of them are at capcom or nintendo. The original guy who preety much made ff games great isn't even there anymore. He owns mistwaker studio. I was preety sure all this was common knowledge now. I still like to see it remade tho.

Senden2712d ago

Agreed. Square couldn't make a successful remake as they are now.

abc12332712d ago

Surely that should be precisely why SE should be making it? The story and character development is all there, it's just the graphics and presentation which need reworking. Even though SE has many faults, making games with poor graphics and presentation isn't one of them


i think that ended at FFIX imo

TheDivine2712d ago

Me too but i say no just because its not needed. It still looks good enough and plays well. Its not even the best ff or jrpg i dont know why people love this game so much. Id rather have a new ff than one remade that ive played and know the story already hows that fun? Its nostalgic yes but id rather have a new hd zelda than a hd ocarina, make NEW games. If its changed up people will hate it, if its not its the same darn thing so its pointless. If they must remake sumthing remake vagrant story, xenogears, chrono cross something people might of missed.

DeadIIIRed2711d ago

Exposing the game to a younger generation is why I support it. You ask how is a remake fun. Think of it as watching a favorite movie in black and white, and then into color. I'm sure there is a movie that you've seen more than a few times.

baodeus2711d ago (Edited 2711d ago )

I don't think new generation would like JRPG (well just based on the current trend) as much. There are still some old times gamers (me for example) buying them for nostalgic reasions (some traditional JRPG are actually really good like Lost Odyssey), but most just kinda moved on or something.

I'm not ditching JRPG or remakes of great titles, but if they can't make a new JRPG with same caliber like before and people keep asking for remakes instead of new IP, then what they said about JRPG is dead might not be that far off. What are we gonna do, keep playing different remakes of FF7?

If only he owned Square-Enix, the world would be a better place.

illidari2712d ago

Kojima: Hey Nomura...I think you know..finally remake that FFVII game since your fans are constantly asking for it.

Nomura: Hey Kojima...I think you know..finally patch in trophies into MGS4 since your fans are constantly asking for it.

Kojima: ....

Nomura: ....

We have hit a stalemate.

Nice! +Bubbles

HellzAssassin2712d ago

Hahahaha, that's actually really funny. Bubs +

Killzone3___2712d ago

ps1 and ps2 days are gone , i love these days , all have fun playing the game , now people only collect the games , even i who don't want to collect trophies i do it , i dunno how , but i always look at the trophies , it's stupid but it's like playing cod , i can't stop playing cod but the game always the same..
