You know what... I might buy this. I don't care that I'm justifying Square's irrational love of remaking everything. :D

Someone should just re-relese FF and FFII on a new consol with NES Graphics for those who didn't get a NES back in the day. It would look old, but it would allow people to experience EXACTLY what they missed rather than an updated version. It would still work becuase it would appeal to fans, and it worked for FFs IV, V and VI.

Well since it's for iPhone I don't think we'll be seeing anything amazingly updated. It'll probably be a basic port just to cash in a bit more. Whatever makes money, right?

>>> Even if appeal to fans very few people would like to pay for a 8-bit game from the 80`s..:luca:
Better make a 3D remake or something..

I'm pretty excited for this, having an ipod and not a psp. It might even get me to finish playing ff1 finally :O

Square will still be remaking those first couple of FFs ten years from now.

They could throw in the 8-bit versions in one of the re-releases/remakes.

I did not read any of the accompanying articles, but since it is a release on the iPhone, it will probably be a port rather than a remake. I see nothing wrong with porting a classic game to multiple consoles over many generations as long as they don't market it as a remake when it is a port.

So when do they start remaking the PS1 FF games?

I want to fight Edea at 60FPS in 720P baby.

This topic, FF Remake? (http://forums.eyesonff.com/general-square-enix/129057-ff-remake.html), speculates that Tetsuya Nomura will be announcing an anticipated remake of one of the later games in the Final Fantasy series. Developers prefer to create ports rather than remakes due to the resources involved; a remake is an expensive venture similar to creating an entirely new game, whereas a port is something that a small team of programmers can do.

I'd definitely rather have a 3D remake for PS3. With voices. For every game up to 9. Hell, even for 10 and 12!

Final Fantasy I is downloadable on the Wii Virtual Console.

Are Wii downloads legal, or is it like an emulater?

Also do you pay? I guess you'd have to...

Of course they're legal, or Nintendo wouldn't... you know, sell them.

And yes you have to buy it. NES games are $5.

It would be a fun project to remake this completely in Javascript for play in any browser, in all of its 8-bit goodness. I might have to tackle it someday.
