Final Fantasy VII Coming To Nintendo DS

#1 Edited by Linkyshinks (9881 posts) -
Square Enix have finally confirmed the DS version of the much loved Final Fantasy VII.  There will be no PS3 version, ever, which does make perfect sense given the high costs involved, and the audience numbers for the two platforms.
 



The game will launch on November 11th in Japan. It's unknown whether the game will have 3DS support, but it is expected to.

I'll give you props and say it was a good 2-5 seconds between when I read the thread title and when the thought "oh right, April fools" went through my head.

I bought FF7 to play on my PsP so this kinda stings a little bit, seeing as I play my DS more often than my PsP. Ah well at least it was/will be cheaper...............Waitaminute WHAT DAY IS IT! 
 
AAARGH! /facepalm

I like how the screen shots and that video don't match up too well

That's because the video is from a build about a year and a half old.

Those look pretty good.  The menus aren't as DS-friendly as they should be if they're trying to make it look believable.

Even if this is an April Fools joke, it would be funny if Square actually made the game for DS rather then PS3.  People would be fucking pissed off.

And then they will proceed to buy 2 million copies of it during its first week on retail shelves.

Yep.   :P              It would be neat to have it on DS though.

True.  
 
That reminds me, I should really post this important news on a few Sony sites also, being the informative fellow I am.

I actually thought this was real. It seems totally plausible considering the number of handheld Final Fantasy games there are.

#21 Posted by JJOR64 (18784 posts) -
@Linkyshinks: You totally should.  Post it on the official Sony boards.

Nice. I was just thinking of how I'd rather have the PS1 FF games on DS than the current style of remakes the other day. I think this would be the only way I would play FFIX.

They're adding a subtitle to it though. Final Fantasy VII: Forever.

Oh yeah, April Fools.

Not bad, but you should have said Final Fantasy 6 DS and used this:

Final Fantasy 7 is a bad game. 

#32 Posted by Whisperkill (2969 posts) -

damn, it kind of sucks that every prank is so predictable, only because I know the date

#33 Posted by Willy105 (4686 posts) -

Well, this is actually believable....

#34 Posted by W0lfbl1tzers (1787 posts) -

I hate you Linky. Not as much as I hate FF7 though.

#35 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

I cant believe I fell for that ^__^

#36 Posted by damswedon (3168 posts) -

i wish Square would do this just the piss off all those gits who constantly moan about the lack of a FFVII remake.

#37 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

I'm really bummed that it's April Fools Day now.

#38 Posted by Kombat (2205 posts) -

People aren't trying hard enough with this whole thing.

#39 Posted by Emilio (3380 posts) -

Either way, I think FFVII could really do well on the DS. Its like that long lost n64 title coming back from the grave.
