Final Fantasy VII Remake “Still Ages Away”


According to a recent Famitsu magazine interview, the hotly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake is still far from release (or a potential demo), certain to drive the humongous legion of Final Fantasy fanboys – or what’s left of them – into an incomprehensible fury.

The interview was conducted with the game’s director, Tetsuya Nomura, who revealed that production is still underway for the title and that an undisclosed amount of time is still required before the team feels confident enough to show anything off.

Nomura attempted to assuage the fears of FFVII oft disappointed fans by stating that the game’s development team is working hard to meet the astronomical expectations of players (while still apparently believing that an action RPG combat system was a good decision) and that they should occupy themselves with some of Square Enix’s other brilliant releases due later in the year (for Android and iOS, no doubt).

The game’s development team is hoping that they will have something to show off to fans sometime during the year, giving themselves almost a year to weasel out of showing the actual goods…

    This. We should wait several (more) years for a product that isn't even what we asked for.

    Really, what's so hard of just taking the exact original game and just remaking it with high-res high-poly counts and possibly better designs here and there?

    It's like Nintendo fucking up their IP (e.g., Pikmin on 3DS), or Konami with Silent Hill, or Capcom with Mega Man, what happened with the Japanese companies that were once awe-inspiring?

    Yup, remaking the exact old game with better graphics/sound quality will be FAR cheaper and still bring tons of profit. Stupid Square Enix

    not sure if I will buy the remake, I need to see more gameplay to decide that but I did not buy XV because of the combat and boring open world.

    You people are seriously delusional.

    There is no place today in the level of AAA game for that type of combat anymore, modern gamers will not accept it.

    FFXV managed to do an interesting experiment where you could set it to turn-based mode, and since obviously they'll be using a similar engine, you can most likely trust that they will do that for those of you who seriously want that type of experience.

    But you have to stop pretending that any artist of any type is happy reproducing the same thing. Leave that to the modders. I'm sure once the remake is out, modders will rip the shit out of it and flawlessly reproduce FFVII as it was originally just like there's a community doing that for Morrowind with Skyrim.

    But do not pretend that a game is crap because it doesn't fit inside the cone of your nostalgia goggles. FFXV is a clusterfuck because of its production, but was still an incredible game. FFVII has a core mechanic it has to follow, so I believe no matter what they do, it'll be like an anime based on a visual novel. They already have a beloved story to work from.

    In either case, turn-based combat of old-school FF type and random encounters are rightfully dead, and there's no reason to say otherwise beyond nostalgia. They did it that way because of limitations, and it ended up being amazing because it was new to everyone.

    In either case, let it go and buy it like you know you will and then you will have paid to hate it.

    I think it's more like "FF used to be good, but the recent games keep getting worse, so you know they're going to screw this up too".

    Kind of like how Konami is fucking up MGS with that zombie rubbish. You can already tell MGS would be better off dead.

    No that quite a bit of an exaggeration, despite 15 sucking overall FF hasn't plunged like MGS has.

    I will be shocked if this turns out to not be shit.

    When was the last time you saw a good remake of something so beloved and revered? I can't think of a single good example. They always do some unnecessary shit as part of the "remake" and ruin it.

    Well, not like I give a fuck about it since they said themselves that they are free to change whatever they want.

    And sadly it'll probably sell anyway regarlss of quality or of how much this needed to be a remake instead of is own beast if they wanted something "new" that much, if only because of the name. fuck it.

    I'll have to agree with the "let it die" people, FFXV was tge worst final fantasy ever. Only an hours worth of story decorated with traveling an "open world" area that looks exactly the same no matter where you go, and the product placement is just plain awful, and the writing...a preteen emo chick wrote it, the story had multiple "oh by the way moments" "Oh, btw that guy you just met for a 5 second dialogue was killed, you should get sad and go get revenge." moments just like that, trying to make you feel for characters you've onky seen once, heck, some of the characters you dont even see, they talk about them, then later go "oh by the way, he's dead, so dont be waiting to meet them." making the character pointless, not even filler.

    And one of the worst things about the remake is that you just know they're going to make Tifa a pettanko, because big tits are "offensive".

    Who in their right mind is still chomping at the bit for a FFVII remake for some ungodly reason?

    Just wait till it's canceled because "It's not meeting the high expectations we placed on it"

    They should take all the time they need.

    We all know what happens to games when studios are rushed to publish games.

    I'm a fan of turn base rpgs but the ARPG battle system actually looks decent for this game. FFXV is shitty tho.

    If the fanboys truly care, they will be patient and understanding about not rushing art.

    Thank god they changed that which is one of the worst fight system of the series, where all characters acts like the same.
