PostFinal Fantasy VII Remake (PS4 timed exclusive)

Update - the reveal trailer:



http://www.siliconera.com/2015/06/15/fi ... LimUWL3.99

Siliconera has learnt that Square Enix are developing a Final Fantasy VII remake for PlayStation 4.

The Final Fantasy VII remake will use a more modern art style for Cloud, similar to his appearance in Dissidia Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It is being created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII.

(And no, this isn’t the Final Fantasy VII port for PlayStation 4 that was previously announced by Square.)

Don't understand why you'd only make that for one console. It's a license to print money so why not put it on everything and the PC?

Wikipedia is saying FF7 came out in 1997. Why would you announce this so far in advance of the anniversary?

According to Gaf,

Miruhoggu wrote:

Can't give my word on the crazy Shenmue rumours but the FF VII remake is a real thing. They started production a few months ago and it will be announced this week for a 2017 release.

The Last Guardian is coming back too, Sony PR guys are giving appointments to the press and they plan to release it during the holiday season since Uncharted 4 is delayed until 2016.
has been verified by their mods

edit: whether this means anything is up for interpretation.

Wouldn't be surprised if Sony are part funding it if it does turn out to be true.

Interesting. Siliconera must be pretty sure to post this. If it is a full remake with more gameplay then I think it quite possible to come out on other platforms. Possible megaton reveal tonight spoilt. I wish I never read this!

Doesn't this defeat the point of the PS4 port of the original then?

Advent Children Cloud looked shite. They should stick to the original art style.

Square should do this if they like money. But not before a VI remake.

I'd shoot my load.

After the reaction they got to last year's announcement., maybe it's pushed them into finally remaking it.

They're going to do something. The creator said "The compilation of final fantasy 7 would end on the game's 20th anniversary"

(Compilation is Dirge of Cerberus, Crisis Core, Advent Children etc) So they're either going to do a game set in the same world, or a remake.

You'd hope they'd have learned what people want after last year. And that shitty port still isn't out, so maybe they reconsidered and put a bit more effort in?

Kind of like REmake?

If it is a FFVII remake then no way it will be 2017.

Look at how long Square Enix took for one of the FFXIII games.
