If:
- Barrett only sounded like Mr T in FF7 because of a rushed translator adding the character quirk after the fact
- Barrett sounds like Mr T in the remake

Then Square DID change him.

It seems like the group saying "keep him the same" and the group saying "what's the point in the remake if nothing changes" are arguing the point opposite from what they mean?


Can you elaborate on this a bit more please jiggles.

Is it just me that thinks Barrett's design looks ever so slightly white-washed?

Not to posit that in an accusatory way, I'm just not a huge fan of the design. Not quite this guy for me:

But this is just part 1? Are people even going to be interested with this being episodic? Feels like a silly decision and it should just he launched on ps5 in 2021.

So 9 months from release and they've not even confirmed how the episodic stuff will work?

And no sign of Tifa etc in trailer (that was 2nd reactor right?)....

How small is each episode going to be...:S

This trailer exclusively showed the first reactor mission and journey back to Sector 7.

The previous trailer showed stuff from after Don Corneo's mansion, with Tifa in the party (but not onscreen).

A lot of people are assuming this goes to the end of Midgar but honestly, I feel like it could go to Junon.

Looks awesome and so glad it doesn’t have the awful turn based battle system, which really should stay in the past.

Still not sure on whether this is being released in episodes because of the price of the title, which seems to be like any top release.

Each episode is a full game, hence the 2 discs just for Midgar alone.

I was surprised by this change. I'm not saying the new system doesn't sound good, but it appears to be far different to the original game.

Yeah, the messaging didn't seem clear; there is talk of "two Blu-rays" and collector's editions, but I wonder if this release is gonna be the whole game or just the first part?

It looks gorgeous. Still unconvinced by the battles though, and I don't think I can accurately express just how much I hate the voices. Barratt does indeed appear to sound entirely like a bad Mr T impression.

Hopefully there'll be a Japanese voice pack available for download, or a slider to turn them off entirely.

Best in show.

My experience with FF is about 10 hours with 15 before getting bored. Thought this looked absolutely stunning, I just hope it's accessible for new comers.

Is it me or are they being really unclear with their episodic plans for this?

After watching the presentation I came away thinking they’d scrapped that idea and next year’s release was the full game. But that doesn’t seem to be the case?

Im pretty sure they will split the game but maybe its in smaller chunks

Like 2 or 3 games not in small bites

Haven't had a chance to watch the latest clips for this, will hopefully get a chance today! I'm still very excited - but are they trying to charge full price for each part of the game now?

Slashing away with a 6 foot sword doing tiny chip damage to power up a special attack seems odd....

I love how the Scorpion gets damaged the longer the fight goes on

Hmm. I don't mind them mixing things like this up, after all the original will always be there to play if I want that experience. But if they are going to change aspects like the battle system it would be nice if they did so in a way that maintained enough of the essence of the original.

And obviously if you are going to replace something make damn sure that the replacement is good!
