To call this game the 'new FF7' is sortof a mistake in the first place. The two games have some things in common but they are different sorts of experiences at different times and mindsets of gamers. I certainly DO hope that Ni No Kuni starts becoming a flagship franchise for Ghibli/Level5 since this was an AWESOME teaming. I definitely will be preordering any sequel to this game LONG before release so I don't have the WE heartbreak again.
The ability to appeal to such a wide range of ages is something few other games have been able to do, I can see this being a beloved game for any gamer aged 8 to 58... personally I hope to still be gaming in my 80s and die with a controller in my hand and a great game on my monitor.

Ni no Kuni is a good game, but it isn't that good. It brings nothing new to the table and is unlikely to have any effect on the industry. Whether you like it or not, FFVII brought JRPGs into the mainstream, and was highly influential. So, no. Ni no Kuni doesn't even begin to come close to FFVII.

I played FF 1'4 and 6 before 7 and i hated then like i do now ... but the game was amazing for what it did for future RPG's .. you can hate a game but still respect it for how it changed rpg's
I can respect that. But i do not think NNK has changed RPGs or made any significant marks like FF7 did. I don't even think some of the most popular RPGs out there today have made the same kind of impact as FF7. Seriously, think back, everyone. What RPG has really made a mark in the last 10 years. I'm racking my brain.
Regardless I don't think this game will ever need a remake just like other games of this generation and so on. The only reason game in the SNES - PS2 era need remakes is because graphics weren't as powerful as back then. Who wouldn't like to see Cloud in HD 720p doing the FF7 adventure again (with added sidequests, more places, and extras of course). It's just that I can't see games like Uncharted even 50 years in the future asking to be remade, because the graphics are already perfect unlike past games.
