    looks so awesome and im glad its a new battle system

  • Jesus Christ

    Ah, I’m waiting on all the conservative die-hard fans to rip this remake to shred because it’s ARPG and not ATB/turn-base. LOL

    And uh… his arm muscle looks malnourished and sculpted at the same time. Looks creepy.

    Oh wait, I gotta be careful what I say cause it just came out and fanboys are hyper sensitive.

    #JesusShield activated.

  • Lan

    I want it so badly!

  • Jono Charles Davey

    Right, listen Jesus, I’ve had it up to here with you!

  • Cannot handle awesomeness… Too much… Square Enix have mercy….

  • daveguitar

    This is AWEEEEEESOME!

  • Final Fantasy Versus VII

  • karasuKumo

    It’s literally just a re-skinned FFXV, what the actual fuck.

  • Jesus Christ

    Ahahaha finally first complainer. That’s nice, what else don’t you like about it? His arms looks weird no?

  • Sora

    HIS ARMS ARE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SCULPTED PIXELS I HAVE EVERY SEEN!!

  • Sora

    Shut up and take all my Gil

  • Jesus Christ

    Perfect comment. I wouldn’t expect any less from a real blind fanboy. Not you of course, I’m sure you said that for sarcasm effect.

  • Lan

    Who is voicing Cloud? Just curious

  • Randy Marsh

    Seems like Steve Burton still.

  • Sora

    Nah I am a fangirl and I am not blind cause I clearly saw them beautiful arms which you can’t appreciate!

  • Jesus Christ

    Yeah that battle scenes at nighttime in this trailer sure does look like that in them on versus trailers.

  • Jesus Christ

    REALLY!? You seriously, really like them? Do you be, be you Sora gurl.

    All right.

  • AphroditeBoy

    Combat looks amazing.

  • Sora

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Did not expect you to respect my opinion

  • Jesus Christ

    The characters retain that anime look to them. I guess that’s on purpose.

  • Jesus Christ

    I respect it, I just don’t understand how you can like the look of it. I felt like no strong ou la la with this trailer. Everything is all dark, ok you can argue it’s has a purpose – all right. Graphics is ok – ok you can say it’s still early – all right. And that arm. Even I can’t save him from that one.

    It’s just eh.

  • Sora

    It’s dark because they are in the Midgar Slums which has a huge… HUGEEEEEE…. plate above it for ages.

  • Sora

    Jesus, what do you think about Barret’s arms with bulging veins? I think that looks scary, he is using some kind of steriods… or what.

  • Allan

    Haha i thought the same about his arms.

    The new battle mechanic looks interesting, kind of KH + crisis core + FFXV

  • Jesus Christ

    I’m sorry, but no. I see what you getting at here. But barrents arms matches his frame.

    Cloud on the other hand looks like he is famished and dying. EAT SOMETHING. His arms looks passable in advent children CGI. This trailer. Ew

  • Tom

    Mark Hamill?

  • I agree. Cloud’s arms are just too skinny. That sword must very light!

  • Sora

    He will need Barret’s arms for that sword XD

  • Adrian

    Are they gonna remove character switching in this game too?

    Kidding, it looks like it’ll be a blast.

  • Larxene howar

    I’m surprised they add English text and speech to early trailer so soon
    They are working faster than expected

  • Tom

    The way Cloud goes between 2 objects has the same animation they showcased when Noctis was going in the caves.

  • Sora

    Maybe his arms are gradually growing in this game and the result is Advent Children ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Jesus Christ

    “They are working faster than expected”

    Please be excited… 2020

    Please be excited … 2025

  • Jesus Christ

    Ok, lets say that’s true. Until that happens, I stand by what I say. His arm (heck his entire body) looks malnourished and creepy.

  • Preston Ray

    This looks awesome
    And I love the battle system!

  • Tomรกลก Zapletal

    I think I am pregnant now.

  • Josh Asher

    What do you expect, it’s Nomura directing and for the last 10 years he’s been doing nothing but FF XV and Kingdom Hearts

  • Graphics seem more advanced than FFXV. o.O

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    It seems you missed the point. We are shown English voice acting, gameplay, etc.. This is the sign of a fully in production game aiming for release in about a year or so? It seems odd that you’d compare this to Versus XIII’s obviously impaired and early development. This is a different case.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Not sure how I feel about the combat menu, none-the-less it looks amazing.

  • karasuKumo

    From the looks of it so much of the coding is the exact same. I get that they put a lot of work into XV but to literally copy/paste gameplay from an unreleased game into a remake is insulting to the original. I’d say it was more a decision from Sony to get an exclusive out relatively soon, I don’t want to blame SE entirely quite yet. This is more shocking than Cloud in Smash Bros for me.

  • Jesus Christ

    Aww how sweet, I’ll just go ahead and blame SE entirely for you. LOL

    jk not really bai

  • Jesus Christ

    Thank you for commenting, methamphetamine.

    The point of that particular comment was meant to be funny and poke fun at Versus and XV. Not a serious comparison.

  • stevenm281

    [email protected]!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BEST REMAKE EVER

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Sorry, sometimes I take comments too literally. It’s easy on the internet.

  • Anime10121

    Well I’m sure its easier when you already have English VA’s picked out XD I mean KH3 did the same (even though the 2 characters in that trailer were brand new)

  • Jesus Christ

    It’s OK, marijuana. I’m all smiles here. Keep on doing drugs.

    #jk On a serious note, the trailer sucked.

  • Allan

    Hmm… if you take a closer look on the battle menu you can see a ATB-esque bar under the character’s name (everytime Cloud hits the bar goes up – probably you won’t be able to hit anymore when it’s full). Guess they are trying to mix things to please everyone. Nice move

    *clearly seen from 1:15 onwards

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Marijuana? And you presuppose that I do drugs? Why on Earth would you think that?

    Why do you think the trailer sucked? I thought it was pretty good, some scenes were pretty cheesy, not sure how I feel about the combat though (not seen enough of it) but it looks pretty good, what engine do you think it uses?

  • And the winner is….?

  • Ehren Rivers

    That is almost certainly the Limit Break bar. Most likely, when it is full the Attack command will change to the name of the equipped Limit, or a button prompt will appear to unleash it.

  • Ehren Rivers

    I think it’s wonderful that they seem to be using the same engine as Final Fantasy XV. Square Enix has spent too much time on making new engines for new games, and a new “standard” engine is just what the company needs to speed up production. I’d rather they use the same base engine and see minor tweaks based on the game as IV through IX used and maybe, just maybe be able to get back to the realm of a new mainline Final Fantasy every 2-3 years.

  • Adam Hedquist

    I disagree. In my eyes it’s the same or XV is better looking. I’m not a fanboy. It’s just my opinion. Looking forward to both games.

  • Allan

    I disagree, since the limit break bar is side-by-side with the MP bar
    (character name => HP => MP => Limit)

  • Devil’s Luck

    Also at 1:25 it fills up until it turns red. Seems more like 13-style ATB where each attack costs a certain amount of the bar and you have to wait for it to cooldown before attacking again. The red spinning slash at the end of that 1:25 segment takes a huge chunk of the bar and makes it turn red, possibly meaning that it “overheated” the gauge?

  • Allan

    Yeah, that particular scene where cloud is going through that tight wall is totally FFXV. But i thought they were using luminous only for FFXV… Is it possible to use any other engine with luminous for details and support?

  • Allan

    Exactly what I thought!

  • Anime10121

    Cocaine cowboy

  • Ehren Rivers

    Ah, so it is. Oops!

    How odd, this other bar uses pretty much the same graphics and coloration as the original limit bar, and when it turns red Cloud is using what looks like his Climhazzard limit break.

  • Devil’s Luck

    I wonder if that’s the intention. Cloud *is* a bit of a genetic experiment by this point.

  • Allan

    :DD

    I wanna see more TT_TT

    I think Barret also used Big Shot at 1:20 *.*

  • stevenm281

    I always thought I’d see Nomura using Versus XIII battle system for the remake of VII and thats why Tabata had to change FF15 battle system.

  • Jesus Christ

    “#jk” <–you missed it. Your name is cocainecowboyFF7. calling you meth and marijuana was to be funny. Look, I won't be joking around with you anymore. I don't want anything bad coming out of this thread of convo.

    The trailer didn't wow me. Character looks ok, cloud looks terrible. Battle sequence looks ok. the environment doesn't look appealing even if it has a purpose in story. I want to see some contrast.

    Take care.

  • Ehren Rivers

    Actually, what they said was that they weren’t planning on using the Luminous engine for any other games ‘at this time’ or ‘for now’. If it is in fact using Luminous, it’s likely that the decision to use the engine came later since VII Remake is a newly announced title and they were still deciding on the battle system at announcement time earlier this year.

  • Ehren Rivers

    Indeed he did!

  • Allan

    Hmm got it

  • Jesus Christ

    I’m not a FFXV fanboy if you follow what i have to say abut it. But, FFXV looks way better.

  • stevenm281

    Its similar but 15 is better.

  • Allan

    Maybe they did, and that’s why they could show us the battle system so quickly ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Jesus Christ

    I think we’ll get to see that cloud eat rats and bugs in the slums. No wonder he’s so skinny. Lol

  • Ehren Rivers

    So they said at Gamescom a few months ago they didn’t intend to make the VII Remake with Luminous. Or rather, “It’s not planned to use Luminous”. I’m wondering if the cannibalized parts of the engine for something like Unreal Engine or if they changed their minds.

  • stevenm281

    unless the engine can still use the assets produced before Luminous, or even during, if compatible format, idk.

  • Sora

    Oh yeah now I remember, Cloud was in this kind of device filled with water in FFVII Crisis Core and was being experimented on and totally knock out till the end of the game, I am curious how he made it to Midgar

  • Jesus Christ

    How I take this is they threw away the sucky battle system and give it to FF7R, while FFXV reap all the benefits of patent pending new battle system. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Ehren Rivers

    Assets I don’t think would be an issue. All that I really think matters is compatability of plugins and functions. Whatever the actual engine, the game definitely seems to use at least some functions from XV and the visual style of the menu does appear to be the same as Kingdom Hearts/Versus XIII. I’m not surprised Nomura would go that route, and wouldn’t let possible completed assets go to waste. Personally, I’m curious about the base engine precisely because of what I said in my post up top: Older Final Fantasies shared the same engines with minor tweaking, and I think Square Enix needs to go back to that in order to keep up reasonable release windows.

  • Only it wasn’t water, it was the planet’s spirit energy that eventually drove him half-insane, not to mention gave him poisoning.

  • I want to hear what Kitase and Nomura have to say! I’m sure they didn’t go to SF just for that!

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    I know I will buy it for sure but its not the coolest game I ever saw. Graphic is really amazing but… I dont know. Looks kinda unrealistic. And that gameplay looks…ahem… shitty. And voice acting is HORRIBLE!!!!!!! Why they are still puting that english voice acting. No one wants to hear that.

    Final Fantasy XV looks much way cooler than that.

  • Martian Wong

    I like what I see
    But my worry is that they might not be able to deliver what they promised like what happened with Final Fantasy Versus XIII. But if they do achieve it , it would be so awesome.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    If We would make a comparision FFVIIRemake and FFXV, XV would won without problem.
    FFXV looks so detailed in animation, soundtrack,character models, world, Japanese voice acting, battle system etc.
    That Remake looks like a Crisis Core with better graphic. I excpected something more Epic.

  • arcnate

    i thought they where using unreal 4

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    After announcement of FF7remake I thought PS4 would be selling like crazy, but now I know this wont happen. Games like Uncharted 4 and Last guardian will sell PS4. Not that remake.
    Comparing remake to these games(Ucharted and last guardian) its nothing. Its nothing new. We all saw that already. In Crisis Core many years ago.
    I hope it will get better with time cuz now Im not really excited.
    FFXV kicks butt that remake.

  • Limbs4wings

    What a sad sack you are. Can’t you just celebrate the fact that it is happening regardless of whether PS4s are being sold at its expense?

  • Noctis

    Nah the combat is to fast in the trailer for having that old system.

  • Noctis

    Guys this is it, i know i wasn’t the nicest person in my last posts….but i know for sure that some guys here thinks in my way. Finally ff7 has the gameplay that every ff for now on should have! Cheers and habe a nice day.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    Sad…what? Haha!
    I am happy but I excpected something better. Something more epic, something new.
    And I really care about how PS4 solds ๐Ÿ™‚ Its my duty. And Im not a fanboy of Sony ๐Ÿ™‚
    Or maybe I am fanboy of Sony? Yes, I am.

  • FF7 Remake is just FF7 with the addition of basically the rebirth of the FF versus XIII battle system and that’s what makes it awesome. FF7 has a huge backing don’t think all of it’s fan base will because it doesn’t use the ATB. You apparently think FFXV is winning over this so you must be one of those people who liked the switch in battle system from from Versus XIII to the horrid one we’re stuck with in FFXV? I mean face it that seems to be your only problem because everything else in the the trailer looks fine but you just can’t seem to accept the battle system.

  • There is no harm in reusing code, especially when it’s not that hard to implement and it’s literally your own companies code. I mean just how long do you want this game to take anyways? People need to stop comparing it to FFXV and start comparing it to FF versus XIII because that is the biggest difference that makes FF7 Remake what it currently is. And that damn good looking so far.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    I dont like it because it dont have a ATB. Im just not really excited by how gameplay looks. I mean the running through city, animation and that they didnt show anything new. Its just new action game which looks lame when You compare it to FFXV. That is my opinion.

    I cant say which system I prefer cuz I didnt played Versus(No one have) and didnt played the XV. But XV for me looks cooler than FF 7remake.

    I will buy it anyway but I can share my opinion to see what other says.

    I cant stand that english voice acting for sure. Wedge or Biggs(I didnt hear good in the trailer)sounds so bad, horrible, stupid and lame I cant and I dont want to hear it.

  • Gio

    Ok. Really interesting but the gameplay and graphics sort of reminds me of lightning returns. Even the movements. Hmmm

  • Jesus Christ

    That fat guy’s VA sounds so weird. doesn’t fit at all.

  • Miqote

    Fix some of the voice acting and body movement.. but man does this look great!!! yay

  • Kaizokugami

    Loving the look of the combat in this game! Strangely enough this is how I imagined the combat in the remake would look like when the game was first announced at E3. Kind of looks like it’s a hybrid of ATB and action. I like it.
    I get the feeling they’re showing this combat off to gauge fan response more than anything else though, so I’m sure it’s subject to change.

    On another note, holy moly this game is gorgeous and it’ll probably look even more gorgeous in the final version. Not really feeling some of the voice acting though…Wedge in particular.

  • Limbs4wings

    I felt the “Wedge moment” was like they were trying to say “this is still a very silly game in spite of all these angry people!”

    I like how it retains the same cartoony feel of the original, while still capturing Midgar’s gritty atmosphere. Even the music fits the scene perfectly!

  • Randy

    Im getting the vibe of crisis core actually when it comes to the battle scene… anyone else?

  • Gendozu

    BEST TRAILER EVER ! Also character switching ,good for you Squeenix.

  • Rakka

    Not a chance I fear.

  • Rakka

    I think I’ll still like the original better after playing this. The combat looks good though.

  • Rakka

    People usually don’t take all the good chances to ignore comments such as yours.
    In any case, his arm muscle looks better now than when it was a fine string connecting his body to his Popeye like forearms.

  • 4FFAN

    WOW! And this is only the beginning of the game. We all know it gets a lot deeper later when Sephiroth comes into play and everything…It’s going to be amazing!

  • cloud

    THIS IS AWESOME!!!! I love it Square has won me back YASSSSS!!!

  • Red Makuzawa

    Final Fantasy VII Remake looks amazing so far. Well done to the team and Square Enix for that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Marijuana is not coke.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    I don’t think either of us can really comment on the battle system yet, to early to tell, but Kitase saying it’s not completely action based kinda scares me, don’t want some pseudo crap like CC. They know they can’t screw this up so I have faith.

    As for Cloud, he’s a fine specimen of a man and can’t possibly look terrible, however yes he looks kinda…bland in this game.

    How they handle the game aesthetically is obviously going to make or break this game.

  • Anime10121

    You asked why he presumed drugs, cocaine is a drug… It was meant to be a joke, not to be taken this seriously :/

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Looks like Unreal 4 to me. But what do I know? Lol

  • Kaizokugami

    I guess, but it sounded a little bit too raspy to me. Despite not liking his voice that much it’s pretty much exactly how I imagined he’d sound like.

    They all look a little too…plastic to me. Then again, this is just a showcase and I highly doubt it will look like this in the final product. Cloud definitely looks better than he does in AC though, I agree with that.

    Heck yeah it did! I unexpectedly really liked the remixed Bombing Mission theme and it felt so nostalgic to hear it again while seeing the game in modern graphics.

    I’m sold and the hype can’t be contained.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    True, but with technology constantly changing and the demand to stay at the top in terms of graphics it would be very hard to do so.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    The only thing Im really curious are how running through the world looks like, car,airship,submarine,Weapons and of course other characters models and graphic. I hope Aerith(She was mega beautiful in AC) and Sephiroth graphic will be Awesome! Sephiroth looked mega evil in AC. Cloud graphic is really great too but in gameplay when You run this deosnt looks so amazing when cutscene plays. I hope graphic and gameplay with get better with each new trailer.
    Comparing this to Uncharted 4 graphic this looks like a PS3 tech demo.

  • Jesus Christ

    No, we can comment on the battle system as it’s shown in the trailer. If you prefer to wait, that’s fine with me. And based on the trailer, it looked OK to me. Actually, it looks really boring. What if it improves in the future trailers? OK, that’s fine too. But this one is lackluster.

    And I can care less about what Kitase said regarding the battle system. From the look of it, it’s will be more action-base/real time then it will be even close to turn base/ATB. If they want to imitate Advent Children battle sequence, there’s no way in hell it would be smart to have it lean towards turn base/ATB whatsoever. It would look stupid.

  • Dโ€ C

    I know it’s early and early to say, but they really need to improve the graphics a little, especially for the character models, I think. Same with the voice acting. But besides that, this is just what I hoped for. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m curious about the “DEFEND” command though, because I don’t get its purpose right now.

  • Daniel Masterson

    ever play Crisis Core?

  • grapes9h5

    so far sooooo goood!!!!

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    Why no one told me that FFVII remake have Japanese trailer too!!!!!!!
    And I watched it with that shitty english voice acting. Stupid me.
    I rewatched trailer 4 times with Japanese voice acting and this game is much cooler now:)
    One thing. Where Cloud goes through walls graphic is very bad. Walls looks terrible. Running animation should be change really quick too cuz its very bad.
    But of course I will but it anyway. Its FFVII remake so its must have. Still didnt noticed new cool things.
    Battle system looks ok but Im waiting for more trailers with more uber hyper gameplay.

  • Dโ€ C

    Yes I did. But to be honest, I didn’t get it back then as well. There are enough buttons for commands to be attached to.

  • Ehren Rivers

    It might be, that’s what we were thinking as well.

  • Umm… This looks amazing. YES! YES! YES!

  • Wiccan

    1. The trailer shows, literally, about 30 seconds of unfinished combat. So unfinished in fact, that the actual menu contains placeholder commands and you’re judging it against a game that has had years of development and a full demo and is almost complete in it’s entirety. If a 2 min trailer in one location of one event isn’t ‘the coolest game you ever saw’ that’s fine, but it’s not the games problem really.

    2. It’s been said by SE like twice now i think, both about the reveal trailer and this trailer, that this is not even close to the highest they can go with the graphics on this game. they already said they can do better. People like you are the reason game devs don’t like to show things anymore, people look at early or unfinished work and literally assume its ready to hit the shelves at that quality and then start spreading misinformation.

    3. They are adding English voice acting because it’s being released in English. It is one of the few JRPGs that has entered mainstream gaming and modern mainstream gaming doesn’t think manga and anime and japanese things are cool anymore, its not the 90s. One reason it feels off is because there clearly wasn’t time to lip synch. It’s 2015 and English voice acting has improved considerably, only a small circle of JRPG weaboo purists are kicking up a fuss about Japanese voice acting and more than half of them can’t even understand what they’re hearing or comprehend if it’s actually any good. They just think “oh cool! desu sounds!!” If this game shipped without english voices people would literally riot. Of the hundreds of comments ive seen across all websites and articles, yours is, surprising perhaps to both of us, the ONLY one i’ve seen complaining that English voices exist. I haven’t even seen anyone begging for dual audio.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    1. Youre right. Maybe this is unfinished product but there are games that first trailer blow Your mind and You know for sure that is the game You always wanted to play.
    In that remake gameplay I dont see it.

    2. I dont have problem with that. If they dont want to show us anything thats ok. Show one cinematic trailer, gameplay trailer and launch trailer. I prefer to know if the game still exist than watching new trailer each new months. Game lacks of surprieses after too many trailers.

    3. About english voice acting. Its good in games where english fit for characters. Like Metal Gear Solid, Grand theft auto or Resident Evil.
    Watch Japanese trailer for FFXV and then with english voices. English is sooo shitty!
    I hope Final Fantasy XV will release with dual audio. I want to play with Japanese voices.

  • Godsbane777

    Strange. I thought that an entirely different company did those games. Who’d have thought there would be similarities?

  • Godsbane777

    Well put. People can be such a f***ing downer.

  • Godsbane777

    Me, bruh. Always me.

  • FF7REMAKE

    original FF7 got Defend command too if you click right in the battle or left for Change
