MonacoAnimeGameInternationalConference 2017-FF7-Remake-2

While new video footage of the impending Final Fantasy VII remake has so far been non-existent, the 2017 Monaco Anime Game International Conference has managed to at least snag a couple screenshots for fans to endlessly speculate over, despite the fact that the beloved RPG is still apparently quite a ways off.

The screenshots unsurprisingly feature more of the game’s beginning area and its first boss battle:

A screenshot of Kingdom Hearts III was also unveiled:

The Final Fantasy VII remake’s director, Tetsuya Nomura, stated in an interview that he has currently been focusing a lot on the game’s new combat system and wanted to release a trailer, but was unfortunately denied – additionally divulging other small tidbits of information, such as allies being immune to grenades (ally grenades, presumably).

The Final Fantasy VII remake is slated to arrive on the PS4 at some undisclosed time in the future.

    Given Square's track record with game development, FF7 remake will be scrapped, started over, scrapped again, started again and then released on Playstation 6.

    That turned out well for FFXV didn't it? Except it didn't. The game runs poorly, the plot was clearly compromised to pander to western gaming OW trends, the UI is nonsensical.

    Good, who the fuck wants cover mechanics..

    Fuck, have they showed if Tifa will be the mini skirt giant tits, or the fucking boob reduction advent children shit?

    Hope the game is M rated so Tifa can have big fat jiggly titties. But I don't Square to reveal her before the game's release because you know the sjw/feminist fucks will start a shit storm about her and try to get her censored. Those motherfuckers.

    "Not living up to expectation" is SquareEnix's company motto.

    This FF7 remake looks like they're trying to be entirely faithful to the PS1s battle system. It literally looks like a carbon copy of the original game but with better graphics. Purists would like that.

    Are you blind? It's an action rpg. There's no ATB bar.

    Yep. I mean look at picture 1, it clearly shows Cloud moving quickly towards an enemy after the player has pressed "Attack". You know like in the old school ff games, you'd just press attack and your dude/chick just quickly performs that action.

    I don't get it. Why is this guy being downvoted? Both shots show an ATB gauge. He's not wrong.Just because you're upset about being wrong doesn't mean you should throw a hissy fit.

    Carbon copy? yeah no it's not even close. A carbon copy would be a remake in the vein of the upcomming Crash Bandicoot remake. Or even PS4 Ratchet and Clank.

    The graphics look like just another generic UE4 game.

    I loved FF7 back in the day, one of the only 2 FF games I liked (6 and 7). This is a travesty and if they go with the episodic games, they'll alienate many players who'll be off to greener pastures and forget about FF7 by the time a next episode comes out. Just release the original emulated on PSN or Steam or whatever and get over it.

    Were people expecting anything different? The screenshots we saw at the start screamed that it was going to be very similar to Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy 15.

    I just hope it comes out for pc, that way I don't have to wait 30-60s for it to load like in ff15, my lord that game had some obnoxious load times.

    Also the fact they are turning a game that is not even 30 hours (I did everything except hit lv 99 and master all materia) in like 28 hours. My first time thru it. Making it into 3 titles is kinda bullshit, all I can see it as is milking the stupid cattle-like fanboys. FF7 was not even that good, like FF10 its highly over rated just because it was peoples 1st jrpg, hell, even the worst Tales of game is easly better than any FF has been, both in story and gameplay. Though square is hard to beat for graphics and music, however, graphics don't make a game good, its something square needs to learn.

    Prime example: FF15, game was pretty as hell, but it was also such garbage other than graphics, the story sucked, the gameplay kinda sucked, and as i said earlier the load times were fucking horrible.

    Can people get over the battle system change? Our tech isn't as limited as it was back when 7 first came out, so whats the actual point of sticking to the original design aside from pleasing the purists?

    well too be fair, they did try to sell the 13 trailer as actual gameplay, when anyone with a brain knew it had to be bullshit. I doubt even square enix would make the same stupid mistake again. I'm just waiting for the fanboys to cry like children because they dont like the changes.

    What changes ?

    There are no changes, they completely remade it into an action game instead of RPG, be happy if there will be actual cities and shops.

    I'm not even sure how melee combat is supposed to be fluid in this, it's going to be a clusterfuck of anything but not what FF7 was.

    At least the music will be good.
    And Graphics will be good, I'm doubtful how they will fit the plot and scripted bosses properly into the combat, I mean, some of them might be doable, but how the fuck are you going to fight Emerald in this combat system ? YOU DON'T.
    How do you fight random enemies ? will there actually be any random enemies ? probably now, considering some random encounter enemies were fucking huge, you can kiss RPG FF7 goodbye.

    I don't even think you'll see half the weapons, and Weapons please fucking I want to see Diamond Weapon scene, that's going to be sick, underwater chase with a submarine ? I don't think this will happen.

    Oh I know, I want to see Jenova fight in the ship storage or at the top of Shin'ra building.

    You wanted a FF7 Remake, you got a FF7 remake, it's just not what FF7 was anymore.

    I would hope so, it was released 20 years ago. I personally would not want to play a 20 year old game again with just a new coat of paint.

    ^upvoting.

    What?

    He's right.

    I'm interested as while I thought FF15 was garbage those were character design, character identity, and plot problems. The battle system wasn't bad at all.

    I doubt FF7-again's plot or characters will diverge much and that's what IMO counts the most.

    Looks too Emo and not Anime enough. I wish they kept more of a Anime design element like the original. This just looks cookie cutter squareinex or whatever their name is now. Not original. Ugly characters, ugly battle system from what I can see. I'll stick with my blob pixel sprites. More personality then I can see in this.

    All haters can fuck off, I'd be happy if this game sees the light of day. Since the day of it's announcement I still can't believe the remake is actually happening. ACTUALLY FUCKING HAPPENING. Holy shit. I will never, ever calm down about this until it's either gets released or cancelled.

    Honestly, FF7 doesn't deserve a remake, if any game by square does its xenogears, as the orignal game was not even complete due to budget and/or time constraits. its why disc 2 was mostly like reading a book, those were all supposed to be area's you explore. There is also the fact the story in Xenogears is massivly better than anything square has shit out for ff series.

    Sure, support Square Enix's strategy of constantly milking the same franchises by releasing different versions of existing titles.

    KH VR 3.8 coming someday (after KH 3.5 Remix of course).
