They said they would never do it unless they made a better game, looks like they gave up. I think they've realised FF15 is going to bomb heavily.

Lets hope it's faithful at least in part ot orignal combat mechanics. A slick, modernised turn-based system is something Sqeenix could really innovate on with this title if they put their mind to it. I don't want an ARPG with poorly implemented MMO-esque combat with a FF7 skin.

I am happy though. Very happy.

I don't envy them. No matter what they make, no matter how "good" it is, a bunch of people are going to be pissed off - it'll be "not close enough to the original", or "too old-fashioned and stuck in the past", too easy, too hard, etc etc.

Day one ultra turbo collectors edition purchase.
FF7 was the defining game of my teenage years and I still consider it a Masterwork.

I can see them going for the XIII style combat - turn based system that's more fluid and dynamic than the classic VII-X system. Though the the last few big FF games to get western releases are Lightning Returns, XIV, Type-0 and XV which are more ARPG. Type-0's worked pretty well I thought, not as MMOish as XII, but not as button mashy as XV, and each character had its own style to playing them.

Worried they'll go the XV route of having only the main character be directly playable, really hope they don't do that.

I'm looking forward to it quite a bit, as I have neither fondness nor dislike of VII. Other than the first ten hours or so which are almost perfect, I always felt the game after leaving Midgar was pretty mediocre. If they can make the rest of the game even slightly as interesting as the opening act, I'll be chuffed.

The only thing I'm truely worried about is how they'll do the combat system. If nothing else let us have 2 styles of combat to choose from, turn based or a button masher for those who have never played a turn based FF game.

Some minor worries are things like the swearing, cross dressing and other jokes and golden moments of the game that might be seen in a bad light in "this day and age". I've never played an FF game past 10 but I know for that one they did away with the world map, I'm hoping they keep a world map for this remake, I want getting Knights of the round as difficult as before.

I don't think I can get that excited over a trailer that probably has no in game footage, has an incoherant monologue, and shows the back of clouds head for 2 seconds then says remake.

If I was under the age of 20 I would be deeply confused by that trailer and wonder why I should care, but then after I saw older peoples reactions I'd act like I did to seem cool, and be really obnoxious and passionate about it to any one of my age who was honest enough to say they didn't care. Imaginary teenage me is the worse kind of person.

"How the new, slightly darker aesthetic sits with some of the crazier elements of the original game remains to be seen, but it seems they'll be intact. Can't wait to see the delicious sight of Cloud in a dress in glorious HD? "Please look forward to it," said Nomura as the interview came to a close. "

>Can't wait to see the delicious sight of Cloud in a dress in glorious HD? "Please look forward to it," said Nomura as the interview came to a close. "

This is why I'm glad the Japanese don't give a single fuck about "safe spaces" and don't bow down to this specific area of pressure where everything must be politically correct.

NOW the localization teams on the other hand aren't so good at that. NISA, a localization team who translate obscure JRPGs which focus on fanservice love to do that shit. No idea if Square-Enix's in-house localisation team will censor anything.

Plus the fact Nomura is at the helm leads me to believe his Poochie will make an appearance in FF7. I mean just before the remake announcement they had the trailer for World of FF which has both Cloud and Lightning as the "classic beloved" characters that represent the series. I mean christ when I got the FFX remaster, she was on the fucking back of the case.

This whole series is why I'm glad I'm not a weeaboo to be honest. It's embarrassing just reading about it.

What do safe spaces have to do with the cross dressing of a fictional character?

Fair enough.

How about how the combat system? Will it be turn based again or will they try and make it real time? The last few FF games that feature a full real time system are a bit shit.

Will the golden saucer include microtransactions? Will Cloud be just like he was in AC rather than originally? Will Tifa's tits be reduced in size? Is Aerith a whore who sells her "flower" for 1gil?

I genuinely did not mean to call her Aerith.

That's what happens when so many people correct me when I say Aeris. Next I'll be saying Cloudu-San.

I think anyone who pays enough attention to E3/gaming news to have seen the FFVII trailer will understand the significance of it, regardless of age. Every review of a JRPG seems to mention FFVII, almost every list of top RPGs/Japanese games/video games in general has FFVII in the top 20. I think anyone who follows video games will understand why there's so much hype surrounding the trailer, even if they have never played the game and even if they weren't born until after it came out.

It's kind of like Ocarina Of Time, I know a lot of people who have never played it, but who say it's the best game of all time because it has a reputation of being as such.
