Which is no secret. It IS an action game. However, the fact they actually added an option to try and please people who are far more into the turn based combat system is pretty cool. Is it going to be perfect? Well I guess it remains to be seen... it appears that instead of your characters just sitting with their weapon in their hands, waiting for commands, they'll just be moving around and doing some very light damage hits. It might not be a 1:1 copy but hey! At least the option exists. I personally didn't see it coming at all so it's definitely a nice surprise.

Yup, exactly, this IS an action game. Making the classic mode more "true" to the traditional FF experience would be very awkward the way they have showcased the game (I think the action game-play LOOKS awkward and stupid too, but that's another discussion)

They could also make a puzzle-game-mode option, where you defeat enemies by completing a level in tetris, while your character AI makes some small hits in the background and move around. It wouldn't be 1:1 but, hey, at least the option would exist!

I don't mean to offend you here btw, just show how I feel about the "classic" mode atm. Then again I haven't actually tried it, and know little about it. Perhaps it will be the greatest thing humanity have ever created. But how it looks right now, I'm guessing I won't be too impressed by it. The action mode will still be the main mode, and everything will be designed around that. In this regard, trying to keep turn-based fans satisfied by the classic mode, expecting them to not "complain", seems rather offensive imo.

It doesn't need to be 1:1, I think anyone would expect some difference, however, the way SE are pushing action oriented gameplay into FF makes it seem like they think that turn-based is outdated, and/or (more likely) appeal to the masses. Will we ever see a "traditional" FF in the main series ever again?

At least they haven't turned main DQ series into action games yet. I'm guessing that would be too weird and unacceptable for the Japanese audience.

The ugly logo basically ruins it completely.

Am I seeing right that the Elemental Materia now only gives a 2-5% damage boost when used in the weapon? In the original game the damage doubled when taking advantage of an elemental weakness, but 2-5%? Why even bother? At least the armor effect remains unchanged, so the Materia will now be restricted to defensive purposes only, too bad...

It's also not very specific with the elemental damage, like is that a universal damage increase that doubles total on hitting weakness, is it 2-5% magic damage i.e casted magic damage added to every strike cause that could get rather excessive

So they've changed the sequence before fighting Air Buster... instead of getting President Shinra in the helicopter, you get a couple of drones and a giant hologram of the President and Heidegger...

Looks like the summons are playable and/or at least the summoner stays in the battle (something like FF12)

There are rumors about Don Corneo being voiced by Mark Hamill...

Also every character has his/her own frog model when in Frog status (i think Cloud's has a sword lol)

I wonder who's that new biker?


I loved what they did with the summons, as that's one of the things i always wished for as a kid/teenager - to be able to control the summons!

However, i do not like what they did to President Shinra in that scene before fighting Air Buster - it can't be too hard to just have him do what he did in the original. No need for pointless changes like that. The helicopter-escape made him more like his son Rufus who also escaped by a helicopter.

What ruins it is Clouds hair. It were much more bad-ass looking and pointy in the old cover/game. I'd think they should have made it more pointy.

They couldn't.  Cloud used up all the AquaNet we had left from the 80s, and hair sculpting products since then are just plain inferior.

Supposedly Kingdom Hearts II's battle director is working on this game. KH2 is my favorite game ever so that alone is getting me excited about the game. At this point I've accepted that the remake will deviate from the original. I just ask that it'll be fun to play, and from the gameplay I've seen it looks like I'll enjoy it.

I'm very excited for this but one thing still bothers me. How many parts will there be? The first portion covers Midgar and they'll make a lot of money at launch but what if they can't or don't finish the whole story? That's my one concern

I've given this quite a bit of thought.

Potentially, they could simply make a 2nd part thats runs till the end of the game on PS5 that embraces the open world concept without having to sacrifice too much, as the hardware and SSD will be able to do much that the PS4 cannot, but this presents a glaring issue: What about PS4 users?? I cant imagine they'll be too happy about being forced to upgrade to PS5 in order to play it. So I suppose they would have to split it into 3 parts, Midgar, Pt.2 up until the Forgotten City and Pt. 3 up until Northern Cave.

This also gives them the breathing room of being able to dedicate their full effort to all the areas that occur solidly within those 3 parts.

I ended up ordering the psn digital deluxe edition as its the only version that has all the digital content except a clothing patch.  But will miss out on the steelcase though.

Eh next generation consoles are not really necessary. Final Fantasy XV already has a GIGANTIC open world. Even though the loading times definitely do suck because of the HDD, it's still more than possible.

New trailer, big spoiler for who is picky (promise Cloud and Tifa, Jenova, Red XIII, fights, crossdressing)

They basically show us everything.

"Spoiler" Warning

An amazing trailer that has it all it seems.

But i think i saw one censorship area: Don Corneo!

In what sense?

Yes, I did get the impression that the team of Cloud, Aerith and Tifa will challenge the Don already at the "chosing the bride" stage. He won't be going with one of them into his bedroom for some "fun"- that's my bet. At least you won't be allowed to see any sexist moves of the Don against Tifa inside that room.

Aerith looked fabulous and i'd surely enjoy using her the entire game in that hot style.

Scarlet of the Shinra looked better than i had thought she would- i thought that Square-Enix would make her less beautiful in this day and age. Well, i was wrong- she has the same hairstyle and is gorgeous. Now, i got the impression she has pants instead of a dress and pants but that was hard to see really.

She seems to be somewhat of a dominatrix towards her troops- while she didn't do that in the original she did indeed kill a few of them for aiming badly.

I hope her signature laugh and pose is still kept. I'm not happy about Tifa's leggins but otherwise Tifa looked great as well. Scarlet used black leggins in the original though so Tifa stole that.

Overall an impressive trailer and all the scenes were amazing. It's also cool that they've made the mouths follow the English words spoken in the trailer/game. That means they'll lipsync it in Japanese for Japan, and in English for everyone else- pretty good effort by the company.

Seeing as how modern Blizzard released a buggy and unstable Warcraft 3 Remake- i can at least praise Square-Enix for putting in the extra hours to make the FF7 Remake something awesome! Just a shame about the Tifa censorship.

As for extra stories they are kind of a gamble- they could be good, or they could also be bad.. It's interesting that Square-Enix is willing to take risks where Blizzard plays it safe.
