E3 is almost here. Like seriously it's super close. Square Enix's conference is tomorrow on June 16th. The very reputable gaming website siliconera (http://www.siliconera.com/2015/06/15/final-fantasy-vii-remake-is-coming-to-playstation-4/) has some very interesting news for us prior to the conference. Final Fantasy VII will have a remake for Playstation 4.

As of yet we don't have any confirmation on this rumor as the only source is siliconera. As they say, "The Final Fantasy VII remake will use a more modern art style for Cloud, similar to his appearance in Dissidia Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It is being created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII."

And no, this is not the PS4 port Square Enix has previously mentioned. This would be an HD remake.

We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if this is confirmed but it's okay if you get hyped already. We'll have more E3 news all week.

If this is true I feel it is necessary to point out that I called this eight fucking years ago:


You know how they said this "celebration of FFVII" thing is intended to last for another 10 years from the time of some speech or another last year? My guess is that the remake will be the very last thing they release. It'd close the circle nicely, and the intervening time will build up a lot of hype about it (Although I can't think of many games that could generate more hype, maybe Halo 3 and WoW 2, but that's about all that comes to mind).

I'd put my money - but admittedly not a lot of it - on a VII remake coming out on whatever the generation of consoles after this one is, rather than the current new gen.

I also called it a bit ago. I won't be terribly surprised they'd choose to remake it for its 20th anniversary.

That said, I'm not getting hopes up until we have confirmation.

Not even cautiously optimistic.

See normally i'm flippant to these types of rumors but siliconera is very unlikely to post these types of rumors. They are usually first on FF news and are always accurate. That's why my interest is peeked.

I read some verified insiders on NeoGaf are saying the same thing.

The Dissidia comparison makes me think this might be a modest remaster, in the vein of the recently released Resident Evil HD. I'd be cool with that, since I really don't want to see an ultra realistic AAA modern rendition of the game. Either way, the buildup to this E3 has been insane. First The Last Guardian and Shenmue and now this.

Wait. Shenmue? *kicks FFVII aside*

what? Shenmue? Yes.

I am dead.

This is probably just the FFVII PC port that's coming out.

I'll eat my hat if this happens.

Which PC port, fat moogle?

Freya

I'm wondering if it'll be their bomb drop for the sony conference.

Fox

Can we just leave this thread open and bump it every E3?

Freya
06-15-2015, 09:18 PM
What happens if it's true this time?

We should still bump it.

I agree with that. Even if we get a remake this time, we should jump back every E3 and claim they are doing another one.

Also, even if they announce a remake, I'd laugh if it just ends up being mostly a concept trailer like Versus XIII was or even the tech demo that got people originally excited and just disappear again for 10 years.

Please don't mess with the script too much. Make the localization less trout but I'm not fond with some of the flanderization of the main characters

Don't worry. Seeing as there will be no remake, the script will not be changed either.

Might be fun to speculate on how they'd mess it up if it did happen though.

I reckon...

They'll turn it into an action RPG
They'll 'fix' the script
They'll include Genesis in the story
They'll use anyone but Andrea Bowen as Aerith's voice actress

I'll believe it when I see it, and then nine years down the road I'll make fun of it for not having a release date yet.

This rumor crops up again every few years, but I find this time particularly curious since it is the first time I've ever seen a reputable gaming website like Siliconera flat out say "FFVII Remake on the way!" without labeling it a rumor.

I'll believe it when I see it, and then nine years down the road I'll make fun of it for not having a release date yet.
You never know, if it does in fact end up being real (which, let's face it: it won't) it may follow the trend of other games this E3. Everything announced at this E3 so far has had a release date within the next year and a half.

It's like they saw Wolf's, "I don't expect any real surprises," and was just all, "You know what? Smurf you! Suck on this you piece of trout!"

Edit: Oh no, Wolf. The FFVII Remake talk has only just begun :smug:

This. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE just remake the ACTUAL GAME and leave the Compilation nonsense OUT of it!

You know, for the longest time I've scoffed off rumours of a remake. I would say "I'll believe it when I see it".

Turns out I was lying.

Because I don't believe it. What is this day.

Well I've been waiting for them to get around to it since the Compilation was announced. The real issue now is that I wonder if this news may have just killed any hype for FFXV...

I CAN BE EXCITED FOR TWO THINGS

If anything this is gonna help XV. Pretty much guarantee VII's going to be something like a 2017 release. What better way to focus attention on the franchise than announcing the remake people have been crying for for a decade, of one of the most famous and successful RPGs ever made?

I'm seeing it more as a this:

Squenix: So FFXV is going to be coming out...
Fanboy: Who cares? When does the VII remake finally come out?
Fanboy 2: Yeah, show more in-game footage I want to see Aerith.
Squenix: But this new trailer will have Luna...
Fangirl: Where's Sephiroth!?
Squenix:... um... we'll show you more when XV is closer to release.
Fans: WELL BLOODY GET ON WITH IT SO YOU CAN GIVE US THE GAME WE'VE ONLY BEEN ASKING FOR FOR 18 YEARS!!!

Dear forum moderators: how can I give Sony and Square Enix a moogle hug? There doesn't seem to be an appropriate button for that. Thank you very much.
