Final Fantasy VII G Bike doesn’t affect the story of the Compilation By Ehren Rivers on June 11, 2014 at 7:58 PM

The newly announced and free-to-play mobile title set in the Final Fantasy VII universe has been confirmed to apparently have “no bearing on the canon”. The producer for the game, Ichirou Hazama, stressed that although he would like players to consider it as having occurred during the original Final Fantasy VII the game hasn’t got a story and therefore doesn’t necessarily need to fall anywhere along the timeline. It was also confirmed that the game is more about chasing down enemies than being a so-called “endless runner” game as some have anticipated it to be. Future courses are under consideration, though right now it’s just the Midgar highway. The creatures, music, and actions in G Bike are meant to remind players of the original VII, as well as using the mobile platform to introduce new people to the lore and experiences of that game. More on this as information comes in.

    They are prepping the remake I say!

    Why introduce new players with this HD title to the FF7 story when the original title is graphically outdated? New kids wont play the old game, they’ll want their nowdays HD graphics and Square Enix knows this. Plus, they did say the compilation will be close on FF7 20th birthday, 2017.

    If the want the remake to be done by then, they need to start now, and they could have been working on it for a while now without anyone knowing.

    Under your theory either Ito or Toriyama would be directing.

  • Wazi the pa

    Please let it be a sign from Square to remake VII. I know I’m pestering but its what we want so bad!!!

  • Dick

    Sounds like yet another stupid decision. A “part” of FFVII? No, people want either a full remake, or nothing.

  • Jesus Christ


    Well, it does look like it can be addicting for a little while.


  • Protosin

    Or Kitase could return to the director’s seat. He directed the original FFVII. I don’t think he’s working on anything right now either.

  • Sora96

    Kitase hasn’t directed a game since VIII.

  • Protosin

    Yes, but it’s possible he’d come back for the remake.

  • Sora96

    I think he’d rather stay as producer.

  • Krijn van Alten

    No Ito please. He needs to focus on something new. XVI I hope.

  • Krijn van Alten

    Naoki Yoshida Is producing and directing XIV ARR on the moment, so it’s not impossible to have both functions at once.

  • Ryuukishi

    That’s all Square needs, ANOTHER huge project on their plate so that XV takes another 8 years to get out the door.

    i saw some top end NeoGAF source leaker claim that the works for a final fantasy 7 remake is already a few years under development in the quiet side, and then 1 day later we end up with the announcement of the FFVII G-bike, makes you really wonder, not to mention the guy who leaked such source is a very well respected guy cause he is always 100% hitting the nail on the head, if this does infact become true then just think by 2017 it’s the 20th anniversary of FFVII, let’s not forget for the 10th anniversary of FFX they released the HD version of FFX. if its infact already a few years secretly in the works and then you throw another few years on it to 2017, there truely is big chances and actually a real chance, perhaps it could be a reason to slow process on FFXV and KH3

    FFVII is now officially SE’s personal prostitute…

    … Nah, who am I kidding, it has been for like 8 years now.

  • Krijn van Alten

    The idea for the compilation was not that bad. And some of the games are really good (CC). But some of them are a real nightmare (BC and now this).

  • Krijn van Alten

    Lets boycott this game. SE knows already that we want a full VII remake, not crap like this.

  • Krijn van Alten

    If the team behind the Lightning trilogy starts now with working on this remake, it can be done finished by the time XVI is out (hopefully Ito together with the old XII team is working on that one).
