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.

If you are accepted as a legend, you don't have to prove it again? :P But yaeh, listened to the soundtrack. Good stuff!

Just finished the demo. Combat is VERY fun. An auto lock-on would be welcome when switching to Barret though. Graphics are great obviously (at least on the Pro model) and there weren't any intrusive loading screens.

There's a few tweaks to the story. Not changes necessarily. There's a big moment after the first boss that could've definitely taken place in the original as well but you never hear about it.

Overall... Day one purchase.

I played through once last night. I loved it. Combat is a ton of fun, even if I sucked at first lol. Some of the back and forth banter got repetitive, but I expect stuff like that. Said banter is done well though. Graphics are sexy and the game runs well. Some dips in FPS every so often, again to be expected. I have an SSD in my Pro, so loading was nice and fast. I can't wait to get home and play more!

P.S. I've seen the new opening a few times now, but watching it in game on my PS4 gave me some feels!

Right!? It's an epic feeling when the logo pops up and the music kicks in.

That's my favorite part. That and the transition from new opening to the old one is class.

Beat it earlier today, the opening is amazing, I'm on the pro with an SSD, didn't even see any loading. The graphics are really good, the combat is fun on normal and has room for depth, sadly there is no hard mode so once you actually master combat I can see the game being very easy on a 2nd playthrough. Still not sure how I feel about them turning Midgar into a 40 hour game from a 6 hour story though. IMO they should have expanded Midgar from 6 hours to maybe 10 hours (expand the streets/scenes/dialogue/maybe the new character Roche) and ended the first part later on in the first disc maybe at the end of the Cargo ship, idk, I feel like Midgar will probably have a lot of fetch quests and stuff that doesn't really fit, but I guess we'll see.

I wanted to comment that I did see some posters that pointed to some acknowledgement of the prior compilation as well as something Heidegger says that also seems to verify some compilation stuff is going to remain canon in the remake

The Guard Scorpion actually kicked my ass on Normal mode. This game doesn't seem to be pulling any punches with the difficulty, which is pretty exciting.
