True, you'll be starting this series on PS4 but you'll be finishing on PS5.

TGS trailer. Lots of Tifa and the Turks in this one.



It also looks like it's making some big changes in the plot. Those weird ghost things are all over the place, there's what looks like a new mini-antagonist in the form of a new SOLDIER character, the war with Wutai seems to be taking more prominence and there's a parachute scene?

Ok.

Looks good, I don't mind them mixing it up a bit either - the original isn't going anywhere so I can always play that if I want the exact same story again.

Music sounded a bit shite in that trailer though...

This looks so good, I never really played much of the original so this will be a fresh experience to me.

Jesus christ this looks good.

The Turks. Squats in the gym. Preparing to dress up as a woman and pull The Don. Hell yes 8-)

Definitely excited they are fleshing out the game, completed original 3 times and bought it 3 times so welcome expansion.

I've not really been paying much attention to this, but looking at the trailer it just looks amazing. Shame it's only the midgar bit as finishing that will make waiting for the rest of the game absolute torture.

Game looks pretty good, cut scenes and voice acting look dire.

Yeah, the voice clips they've demoed sound strawberry floating atrocious. Hopefully there's a way to turn off the voices or at least download a Japanese language pack.

Oh man, the new version of the battle theme is just perfect.

I'm starting to get the hype now. Pretty, pretty hyped.

I wouldn't even mind changing to German or whatever. I just don't want to be aware of how shite it is.

It's especially frustrating because the voice acting in FFXIV now these days is top tier. Why not just use the same studio instead of this anime dub trash.

Well, I hope at least they brought her in because they (incorrectly) thought she was the right fit, rather than a marketing stunt for a new generation, because if it's the latter, I'm super worried about what other gooseberry fool they've attempted.

Yeah the voice acting sounds poor, but hopefully we can change language packs to solve that.

Battle theme clip sounds immense, hope the rest of the soundtracks stacks up, some of their previous re-orchestrations of the music have been poor IMO. The stuff in Advent Children never really hit the spot for me and things like this version of Aerith's Theme are just way too overdone:



Also that latest trailer featuring Biggs as a man has confirmed that this version is now no longer part of my internal canon, as in my head Biggs was a lady in a polyamorous relationship with both Wedge and Jessie. Fanfic back catalogue of their adventures before the destruction of Sector 7 is available on request ;)

If it wasn’t episodic we could be waiting for a long time. :lol:

Interesting to see that they’ve expanded the story in Midgar. Was worried that the remake would BE very short if it just feature the content from the original.

I’m really hyped for this now. May pick it up on day one.

I hope they will let us carry our saves from the first game into the second. I don’t want to play the second part with all your abilities/materia reset back to zero. Or thou may end up finishing the first game with level 100 characters which can result in future episodes more easier.

Maybe they’ll let the enemies/bosses scale up levels on par with yours, just like FFVIII.

I mean, if we assume the next few episodes will be interations on the first and that assets for the next entries are already being worked on were still looking at another 2/3 years until the next one. If they keep going at this rate we're looking at over 10 years until the 'game' is finished.

I imagine the next few will cover much more though. I can see FFVII-2 covering up until the end of Golden Saucer at least. Hopefully.

I’d imagine the second episode will end on that death. Cliff hanger ending for those who’ve not played it before.

Midgar is by far the "densest" section of the game, a lot of the locations after it are pretty thin in terms of content so although I'm sure they plan to beef stuff up a bit in general they should in theory be able to rattle through a fair amount more in the next "chapter" of this.
