News flash: They actually did remake FFVII this year. They re-released it on the PC and they fixed the MDef Bug and sharpened textures and fixed a few translation errors. Oh, and they gave us achievements, because everyone love achievements.

That's a visual update. Not a remake.


They fixed glitches and such... enhanced port at the very least.

So don't buy it if they mess up?
What's so hard about that?

They did re-release it on PSN and PC via digital distribution. They cannot port it to Wii/Wii-U/360 because Sony has claimed the rights to the game's graphical specs.

They've also said that the Final Fantasy series must live on. If they do remake Final Fantasy 7, it will take about 8-10 years in development to rebuild it from scratch, and they said, once they do, the series will end, as they feel "anything that passed Final Fantasy 7 will seem more pointless than it needs to be". If the fans want Final Fantasy 7, they will have to cope with it going out with a bang as the series' swan song.


And that is a load of nonsense. Why would Final Fantasy 7 take 8-10 years of development now? All the concept art and storyline has been done already. That's just Square being lazy. A remake is entirely possible, but it's just unwise to do it since the fanbase will inevitably find SOMETHING wrong with it.


The concept art and storyline are irrelevant, and hardly took much time in the first place. You can't just drop a PS1 game into a magical HD filter and expect it to look decent. The entire in-game engine would have to be rebuilt from the ground up, along with character animations (which were very limited in the original), environment textures, etc. Furthermore, the audio would have to be completely re-done to match today's standards. Which means that a new orchestra would have to be contracted to record the music, and new lines of dialogue need to be written and recorded.


So you're saying that they'd essentially be doing a new game, but with parts of the process already done?

Still don't see the problem.


For the record, I don't care for a FF7 remake. Just that when people say it's too difficult or that it takes 8 years for them to do it, I find that to be an ignorant statement.

FF7 Cloud>=Lightning>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Other versions of Cloud

If they remake VII they will replace the Cloud we know and love with the crappy FFVIII:AC/Dissidia/CC Cloud, who is the worst character they have ever made.

Considering the TC hasn't made a post since making this topic I'm going to call troll topic on this one.
