i read on 1up that square enix have a big final fantasy VII related announcement to make. Do we reckon they'l finally tell us that this is going to happen or will it be another game? or possibly even a film sequal to advent children?

Well, another movie is possible, but so is another game. I'm not an obsessive fan of FFVII, but SE has a license to print money if they make a true FFVII remake.


However, from what I've heard from 1up, this announcement will be a nod to the PS3.

Yeah, whatever Square announces by the beginning of August is supposed to "swing the pendulum back to the PS3" after the E3 360 bombshell of 13. I think that's a Shane Bettenhausen quote quoting a Square exec from an interview he had with him during E3. He mentioned they were working on additional scenes for Advent but that could hardly be as earth-shattering as the loss of 13's exclusivity.

yeh the loss of 13 was a pretty hard hit for the PS3. if on the other hand a remake was to be a PS3 exclusive then that would balance it out abit   :P

A FFVII remake is technically easy, cheaper than developing a new IP, and very financially viable so it's quite possible there will be a remake and I for one would be quite happy playing it.

Not sure why they wouldn't make it to be honest.

I never got round to playing VII. Though VIII is absolutely stunning.

If it gets the remake treatment, i will defiantly be excited.

We all know Square could make it but you always have to remember the fanbase. Remember the tech Demo at E3 2005/6 That Demo alone talks about the quality the game would have to be at minum. Also you have to treat the game with great care because if you do something that the orignal didnt do. Fanboys will jump all over it. It happened with MGS Twin snakes were they made snake dodge bullets in the air.

To be honest square should just say they are making the FF VII because to me The Last couple of FF games were an extreme let down (FF XII FF X-2 etc..)

I would play a remake, am playing crisis core at mo and i keep remembering the old character models and stuff, a ps3 exclusive remake will probably sell systems for sony and be one of SE's best selling titles...

and am i the only one who enjoyed advent children and has watched it more than once?!?!?!

As long as they can milk the franchise, there is no need for them to make a remake.

yeah, they've already remade every game from I-VI, so no reason to screw over VII

If they remade it, I would pick it up first day. Even if the announcement was another CG movie, that'd be good too.

I created a thread in General Discussion, but I'll repost it here so we can keep it all in the same thread.

The Final Fantasy Info [Rumor]

I can now reveal exclusive inside info about Final Fantasy… VII!

Final Fantasy VII will be getting a “new” version of the classic game from the massive franchise and it will be exclusive (for now at least) to the PLAYSTATION 3. It is unclear whether a new version will be a simple remake or an extension to the original like Crisis Core, and if it will be a Blu-ray release, or on the PSN. Something else which won’t be exclusive is the original FF7 which will be coming to the PlayStation Network  by the end of the year.

Both of this info will be officially announced at either Square Enix’s August conference in Japan, or the Tokyo Game Show.

PSLS lists all of our inside info under rumor until it becomes official.

Source

Here's what I'd like to see in a remake:
-Battle style similar to X-2 (I'm NOT talking about the job/dressphere system, I'm talking about the dynamism of the battles).
-"Next-gen" treatment (better graphics, sound, voice-overs, etc)
-New side-quests
-New Materia
-New WEAPONS
-More Midgar sectors available (maybe make the prologue of the game longer? By prologue I mean the Midgar portion of the game)
-Yuffie and Vincent as mandatory characters
-KEEP THE FRACKING OVERWORLD!!!!
-Turks more present. Put more of the members introduced in Before Crisis and whatnot.
-New Game +
-Extended ending (the original was kinda short: Meteor strikes Midgar, BAM, ending).
-more stuff I can't think of...

Final fantasy 7 will be remade, it will be very bad business if they dont.
So much money to be made with this remake...

I want it. I hope they give it to me, because i want it lots. You won't believe how much i want it. ;) (Little nod there)

Seriously though, i think it would be great. Even if they just gave the original a lick of paint, some nice cel-shaded graphics maybe, because the original is pretty bad to look at now. And it would also introduce the game to a whole new generation of gamers. For me there's no good reason not to do it. So do it already. We want it!!

If it makes money then it will happen. Final Fantasy 7 Might happen after 13 is out but no where sooner. I mean Square Enix is working on 3 Final Fantasy games at the moment. No way they can working on one more.

I still can't believe FF7 can't have the decency to die. As far as JRPGs go, it's pretty basic. The reason it was so popular to begin with was the derivative story and graphics. The story has kicked  its dead horse into oblivion, and the graphics don't seem so impressive nowadays, so why keep it going?

Mumble grumble.

A remake would be brilliant. A sequel in game form is more likely though.

Remake? Definately. I tried playing it last year for the first time because so many people say its the ultimate Square Enix title, but i found it a bit outdated and my eyes hurt a bit after playing it for too long. A remake would be perfect for people who have not yet played it!

It will be done eventually. SE love remaking the previous FF games. Take 1 and 2, remade for Wander Swan, ported to PS1 and then remade again but for the PSP. Then III and now IV are done for the DS. At this rate I thik its obvious to expect to eventualy see a FFVII remake.

This debate keeps raging. Final Fantasy VII created my love for RPG's. Along with Metal Gear Solid for my playstation it helped completely revolutionize my thinking of gaming. Today i think it doesn't hold up as well as it did. I still love it... But it's not the same.

That said, i still love that game enough to hope for a remake and i would must certainly buy it. I'd buy a PSN version of the PS1 game for my PSP as well. Actually i think that would be a clever move on Square Enix' part.

big fan of FFVII. But how exactly do you want the remake to be? Is it just a graphical remake? Do you see the enemies in real time or do you magically warp in to a battle screen mode? There's a lot of elements that needs to be decided on. A lot of opportunities to be awesome but a heck of a lot more chances to destroy what that game was about.

Don't know how to feel about a remake yet. The more I think about it, the more things I become worried about. (Especially about the fact how square handles their remakes recently.) But I'm sure I'll get sucked in when they do finally announce it.

Personally, i'd be happy with just a graphical update, like i suggested earlier, maybe cel-shaded would be the way to go, that way you could keep the cuteness of the original but still make it look visually stunning.

They would be a given, more mini-games and side missions.

I'd like a new translation, too, as long as it's not in the "thou and thine" vein.

Maybe Square is planning the biggest move in video games history... a silent release... If so i hope that the games begins with crisis core and then plays last order, moving on the the remade version of FFVII then at credit role plays the full feature film Advent Children.......  two BD's.... both dual layer...

Please be true

Approved. I have no interest in a remake whatsoever*, but a DS-port would be great.



* voice-over single-handedly destroyed brilliant storytelling in JRPGs and will continue to do so
