Final Fantasy VII Remakes gets short teaser trailer


The Final Fantasy VII remake was originally shown in 2015 much to fans excitement. At E3 it received a standing ovation and Square Enix’s stock prices even rose. Personally, I didn’t really get into the Final Fantasy series until FF10 and was mildly annoyed at all fanfare the game got. Regardless, I am excited to see what all the hype is about. One problem seems to be how slow the development process is for this game.

Instead of simply recreating the game with better graphics, the Square Enix team decided to do a full remake. They decided to rebuild the game from the bottom up, using a new game system. The fighting system will change to a more action based style. They aim to upgrade the battle system, similar to games like Kingdom Heart and Dissidia FF. However, they have every intention to keep the gameplay mechanics that fans loved.

The developers also wanted avoid coming across as “too nostalgic,” also they wanted to make changes that reflected “cultural shifts,” like the scene when Cloud cross-dresses on an infiltration mission. The game will be fully voiced and utilize the Epic Games Unreal Engine 4. The game has been planned as a multi-game release. Square Enix claims that “trying to fit the game onto a single release would entail cutting large parts of the game.”

If they split the games players will be given more access to parts of the game that they couldn’t before. Each game is expected to be similar in size to FF13. The cost of each part isn’t known yet. However, if they are the size of full games there’s no reason to believe that they won’t be full priced.

    1. It seems unnecessary to break the game up but their rationale might be reasonable. However, they can make more money that way. I always prefer turn based RPG’s. They’re rare now though.

      1. Yeah that’s true, if they play it right that’ll help. At this point do you think you’ll just wait for the remakes to come out and not play the original or if you really enjoy Part 1 then maybe you’ll buy the original while waiting?
