Nomura talks Final Fantasy VII Remake in Dengeki PlayStation By Erren Van Duine on October 11, 2016 at 5:58 PM

A new interview has surfaced from the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation featuring all things Tetsuya Nomura and his current projects in development including Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Speaking with the magazine, Nomura notes 2017 marks the 20-year anniversary of the original Final Fantasy VII so they’d like to plan something. First thing’s first though: we’ll have to wait until the crowded release period of games such as World of Final Fantasy and other projects calm down a bit before the information ban can be lifted.

Nomura did, however, have a few things to say about the game’s battle system – namely for those concerned about the evolution into a more action-oriented RPG. “The battle system in Final Fantasy VII Remake is also vastly different, so I think we need to communicate very clearly just how exactly battles will work. We’re currently in the middle of elevating various aspects up to finished quality.”

Continuing, he says he’s heard the fans calling out for an Active Time Battle system, but Final Fantasy VII Remake will be very rich in action. With that in mind, he says he’s making a battle system that even more traditional fans of the series can enjoy. So for those fans who dislike action, rest assured.

Recently, Nomura made a check on the Guard Scorpion encounter and was convinced with the realism displayed by the new system.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently in development for PlayStation 4.

    So… in conclusion, he had nothing new to say…

    We already knew about the info ban due to other titles priority and we already knew that he’s going for a more action oriented battle system.

    If we’re lucky we’ll get a trailer at Playstation Experience again this year in December.

  • Stonespear

    Remake news! Hooray! I’ll take any titbits of information on this game. I’m hoping their comments about an “Action game that traditional gameplay fans can enjoy” don’t compromise the gameplay by trying to cater to both. Too early to be concerned about anything yet, though.

  • ️Tifa

    where is this picture from?

  • Young Link

    Thank god now everyone has to accept that this is now an action rpg! I am so happy that they confirmed this for the 4th time in a row lol

  • ShinGundam

    ” Final Fantasy VII Remake will be very rich in action” is still an improvement over what they used to say before like having a lower action degree than KH or so.

  • stevenm281

    Playstation Experience 2015 trailer

  • ShinGundam

    ” Final Fantasy VII Remake will be very rich in action”

    I can get behind this even if I am not sure how they are going to appeal to active time battles fans besides command menu.

    Edit: XV now is merely other project to you ;p

  • Stonespear

    Indeed. I’d prefer a true action game rather than a system that tries to do both – that’s my concern. KH gameplay really isn’t something that gels with me, unfortunately.

  • Erren Van Duine

    Nomura only mentions WoFF specifically in his quote: まずはWOFFなど立て込んでる作品が落ち着いてからの情報解禁となる

     等々。

  • Strabos2333

    And it starts. “News coming in X”

    *X arrives*

    “Sorry, but we’ve got an info blackout atm due to some other projects. Let that die down before we can talk about it.”

    *current hype dies down*

    “Sorry! We can’t share anything at the moment. Please wait next year, and please be excited!”

    *seven years pass*

    “We’re going to rebrand the VIII Remake as Final Fantasy XVII. Please be excited!”

    Sorry, but I just don’t trust Failmura with much of anything these days. He’s actually deluded enough to think complete secrecy and radio silence (not to mention CLOSED FUCKING THEATERS) actually gets people excited.

    If you want the VII project to actually survive, give it someone who knows what he’s doing, like Tabata or Ito. And FAST! So you don’t have to bloody rebrand it from scratch.

  • Octavio Valdez

    Considering that World of Final Fantasy is out this month, and FFXV next month, PSX sounds like the most reasonable forum to show new info.

  • Krijn van Alten

    VII, not VIII

  • Strabos2333

    Typo nitpicking is extremely unattractive. =_=

  • Octavio Valdez

    Honestly I am more concerned as to why we haven’t received any update on KH3, It has been in development longer than the FF7 Remake, Im starting to feel concerned if Nomura is not keeping up to pace with projects. While I understand that other products such as WoFF and FFXV are going to have the commercial spotlight for the comming months, I really think by PSX we should get at least some form of update. Otherwise I hope we ain’t cycling back to the big blackout cycles from before.

  • Didn’t they announce that new KH3 details would be coming in December? They probably don’t want to pull the focus away from 2.8 too much.

  • Octavio Valdez

    I hope you are, right, though It would help a bunch if they show something at PSX and get more people to buy 2.8 for the extra info on the story leading up to 3. Though it is important that SE doesn’t loose the momentum gained from launching FFXV, specially for their Japan studios which had been lagging in the last 6 years of so, A mid 2017 launch for KH3 and late 2017 launch for FF7 Remake part 1 would help boost a lot their consumer goodwill.

  • Luke Watts

    ‘so they’d like to plan something’
    my god.. this is going to take a lot bloody longer than I thought… is ‘something’ a trailer? a mini-movie? a phone game? wallpaper? I was hoping for a trailer at PSX but this is leaving me sceptical at best.
    Also, this ‘information ban’ worries the shit out of me. They won’t make the sales they hope to achieve in either 15 or WOFF. So how long are they going to hold out in hopes of them reaching it??

    Worrying news….

  • Luke Watts

    Yup. Sick of people speculating that is was going to be anything but.. Not saying that ATB systems aren’t fun OR out dated. But I’m glad this is action. Between the feedback they’re going to get on Kingdom hearts and ff15 – They will have something that’s just right by the time this comes out. A mix of ATB and Action just wouldn’t work.

  • Sir

    I think they made pretty clear they won’t share any detail of FF VII Remake before FF XV comes out. FF XV isn’t out yet, so this lack of news don’t surprise me at all.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    for some reason i have a feeling that e3 2017 will be the place they blowout FFVIIremake and show it.

  • Luke Watts

    Everyone kinda suspected that. What’s concerning is how long they feel this ‘release period’ is for, and what games they feel fit into it.

  • Strabos2333

    It’s Failmura. He never has anything new to say.

  • NewestType

    He’s too busy…

    And this:
    “We’re currently in the middle of elevating various aspects up to finished quality.”

  • ZenTzen

    do you actually know anything behing XVs development or SEs history during the ps3/360 era

    cause thats one of the most uninformed comments about a developer i’ve seen

  • mario9785ify

    I’m glad it’s gonna be action based. Buy it wonder will advent children be a type of dlc and could we see clouds kindomethacin hearts 1 and 2 costume (at least kh 1) I’m the game

  • DimariaXV

    He said we would get more KHIII details this winter (December 2016-March 2017)

  • I fine with it being an action RPG. I just wish turn based RPGs were still around and done with the same quality as say FF9 at least. Theyre a dying breed and most people just mock you for even bringing them up now.

  • DimariaXV

    “Im starting to feel concerned if Nomura is not keeping up to pace with projects”
    KHIII is fine, it has Tai Yasue working on it.

  • Dan0709

    I’m kind of worried that they are gonna make us wait on info about the remake due to other games like world of final fantasy, EVEN in their 20th anniversary? Come on, FFVII deserves the main focus in my opinion, it’s its freaking anniversary i mean. Don’t delay things due to other games that ppl dont even care that much than they actually do for FFVII remake, let’s be real.

  • Josh Asher

    If you want to blame anyone, blame Kitase, he’s the one that put Nomura in charge. Nomura didn’t even ask for it, apparently as the story goes he found out one day he was selected as director, went to Kitase and he said, “Well of course, why wouldn’t you be?”

    Also those info blackouts were largely because of Yoichi Wada and the terrible mismanagement and misdirection of the company from about 2003-2012 or so. Things have gotten much better since then, of course nowhere near Square level but things will never be like that again. And it totally makes sense for them to wait until XV and World of FF etc are out the door before sharing info. Just give them time to develop the game.

  • Strabos2333

    It’s Failmura. He’s always busy. He piles on one project after another to the point where half of them suffer. He doesn’t know how to control himself.

  • Strabos2333

    Rofl. That was after he specifically said this upcoming winter would be it.

    You people need to realize who you’re dealing with. This guy is more full of shit than congress.

  • Strabos2333

    “Yoichi Wada”

    Which is why ONLY Nomura’s projects were under blackout, and nobody else’s. Including Kitase’s other involvements outside of Nomura’s stuff.

    Right.

  • Strabos2333

    I really like how you took the time to inform me, the poor ignorant soul, in great detail. It really shows your stuff. That you know what the fuck you’re talking about. 🙂

  • NewestType

    And that makes YOU consider him a failure. Brilliant.

    Also, half of what? What projects are you talking about? I prefer anyone who takes the time to craft something worthwhile.

    Kingdom Hearts is underway, He recently gave updates for Dissidia since he is working on that. KH 2.8 has a release date. He’s only really credited with creating 4 things. Also, everything he’s directed has been amazing. And that’s not opinion. Look up his awards and merits.

    All I was saying is a person decides what nakes them a failure. Not you.

  • ShinGundam

    Yeah, that is my problem with turn-based. I want mechanics of games like BD and WOFF in games that focus less on homage.

  • I want a battle system like BD or WoFF minus Poke’Mon-like monster and with a focus on a serious dire tale like you’d find in FFTactics or Mass Effect 3. I don’t mind the characters being cute or quirky. But who ever said cute character can’t be serious? And who said that just because Action RPGs make more money that that’s ALL they should make from now on? They can’t find the time and money to make a few turnbased RPGs at least once every 3 years?

  • D†C

    I’m still pretty sure this is getting the Star Ocean battle system… 🙂 Or very similar at least.

  • ShinGundam

    They are making more turnbased games now and I don’t have a problem with mechanics. It is just these games targeted toward a narrow subset of people.

  • Invictus

    We might not even see this game on PSX 2016. Or will they? 🙁

  • But the turn based one they did for Setsuna is ultra short and no voice acting. Its like they purposely make them retro rather than mix old and new. Old battle system new story new ways of exploration new kinds of settings etc.

  • subsamuel01

    They don’t want the game to overshadow the release of Final Fantasy XV which is probably why they won’t say anything till 2017.

  • subsamuel01

    PSX is after FFXV launches so they might talk about it, I have a feeling they won’t mention anything till 2016 E3 to give FF15 some space.

  • •december

    This is essentially the news we’ve already
    had on the matter, wouldn’t it be easier to just
    saying the battle system is similar to FFXV?
    I am however glad there was anything at all!
    Almost forgot about the FFVII Remake considering the silence.

  • •december

    Do you mean E3 2017* ??

    also thats much too far away

  • •december

    FFXV deserves the main focus
    the remake is fantastic, but it can wait

  • •december

    It kinda has to be action based or
    else it would just be a remaster tbh loool

  • •december

    Imagine an FFVII anime

  • •december

    Lmfao that would be so bleak

  • If they make the game a 3 partner like a the 3 disks it came with before then fine. But I hope they don’t do more than three. It’ll end up like the 13s where all we do is see FF7 games instead of finally hitting FF16 and 17. Also no more MMOs.

  • I hope we see it in 2018.

  • •december

    I can’t wait to experience the Golden Saucer in 1080p/HD

  • I’d like it to be the Grandia 2 battle system. You had turns but areas you stood in mattered as blasts would hit you if you didn’t move. Also you could combo foes and miss if the ran around your hits.

  • D†C

    Yeah, I remember that and I really liked it at that time. But for me it wouldn’t be fast enough nowadays and I just can’t get into the idea of “turns” at this point of graphic quality, production and development standards. Actually, sure I’d still play games with “traditional” battle systems, but for me that means those games have to look and feel traditional as well.

  • BLUBBER

    we will see it in 2017…
    im pretty sure we get the first Final Fantasy VII title in the end of 2017. they dont talk about it yet because nobody would be interested in FFXV then.
    2017 is the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII. And they said that they split up FF7 into more parts in order to deliver it faster to the fans (and that the content is too big).

    And his statement:
    “We’re currently in the middle of elevating various aspects up to finished quality”
    seems like it is no longer than a year away for the first FFVII Remake title.

  • D.3ND

    13 was a different shit storm because of the story, the remake is so big that it have do it as a trilogy(with the help of Cyber Connect) but it have a very well establish universe/story.

  • BLUBBER

    Im pretty sure that we are going to see the first Part (or title) of Final Fantasy VII Remake next year.
    Why am i so optimistic? Next year is the 20th anniversary, they split FFVII R into a multipart game in order to deliver it faster to the fans (and in order to deliver it at the 20th anniversary).

    They just dont say anything further because nobody would be interested in FFXV anymore then.
    Since FFXV got pushed back to 29th november im quiet sure that they dont show anything new untill early next year. If FFXV got released in Octobre we may have seen something new before the very end of this year, but now i doubt it quiet a lot.

  • D.3ND

    6 weeks and 3 days to go.

  • BLUBBER

    for FFXV`? yes, but i doubt that they show anything about FFVII-R directly after the Release of Final Fantasy XV. even some weeks after its quiet important to maintain all attention on the game. the first weeks/month is the most important to sell a game.

    Especially having in mind that Final Fantasy XV comes out after a development of 10 years. Everything has to be under perfect conditions then. News about FFVII may distract and lower the hype about FFXV

  • Yeah after the original 13 they just kept retconning the story. First chaos grabs Lightning changing the end of 13 and then she becomes a goddess or demi god. Then the world is ending and you have race to finish the fucking game. What a disaster. Type0 was fun but the story was jumbled up and boiled down to a never ending war of people manipulated by crystals. Dumb.

  • Why can’t people be interest in both. I want XV and 7.

  • What about how fast things were in x-2 13-2 and Lightning Returns. Those had turns but battles were fast. Same with 12. Besides does it have to be lightning fast battles all the time? These days so much is put into action even limit breaks are considered time consuming so the make them with not exist or super simple and short. And don’t even think about summon animations.

  • stevenm281

    like Last Order?

  • Why not at least talk about both.

  • BLUBBER

    People may say “oh this looks so much better i skip on FFXV but i’ll play FF7”

  • Failmura? You can do better than that. Come on.

  • BLUBBER

    though thats not really true i also like that they change at least something more about the game than just graphics. A Remaster uses existing graphic models etc. but enhances it to HD or to more crispier textures.

    Whereas in a remake you make complete new graphic models etc… remake doesnt mean that you have to change the combat system as well. thats not true.

    Final Fantasy IV NDS for example is a remake, although they didnt change anything about the combat system. from 2D into 3D

  • strifev1

    I bet they show something at the Playstation Experience event in December.

  • BLUBBER

    maybe a Final Fantasy VII Remake uncover event where they reveal the release date: end of 2017 😉

  • strifev1

    SE is a big enough company to have multiple teams working on different titles. FF7 Remake won’t effect FFXVI.
    Also, FFXIV is one of the most successful MMOs ever. It has a dedicated team working on it. They won’t stop making them.

  • How is Nomura a failure when KH2 is consider one of the best action RPG by many fans? And not to mention a lot of his work paved the way for what we have now. If he’s a failure then what’s a success.

  • I’m not saying don’t do 14. I’m stop making online FFs numbered. They’re not legit self contained stories. They’re just a series of quests that a loosely strung together as if they’re one story. Barely any character development or real depth.

  • Why? Why not buy one. Save up buy the other.

  • I doubt it. There’s so much coming in Jan Feb and March they aren’t gonna bother with it since they know money will be rolling in for those. Likely they’ll just do an interview.

  • I hope the battle system is like KH2 but with Materia and Limit Breaks.

  • And yet still no Ff6 or 5 remake in full 3D and no voice acting.
    Do they just not care what fans ask for it? Is it a “you’ll take what I give you and be grateful” type of thing?

  • Ricardo Fernandes

    So if you are hungry and i will give you food will you still choose what you want?

  • •december

    yes!!!

  • •december

    Like Final Fantasy XV Brotherhood lol

  • Cloud Lockhart

    sure.

  • Cloud Lockhart

    agree. just wait until XV release.

  • ZenTzen

    he never said anything about showing FF7remake this year, he did say however, that 2016 was a year of prep for FF7 and to not expect anything

  • ZenTzen

    why should i inform a person too lazy to look for himself on stuff readily available on the internet

  • strifev1

    I think it’s too big of a title for Sony to not showcase for an event that is pretty much for previewing what the next year will entail.
    If it isn’t shown it’s because SE doesn’t want overshadow titles that will hit at the turn of the year.

  • strifev1

    I heavily disagree on story comments.
    I played from beta til about 6 months ago and the story is great and more in depth than any MMO story I’ve ever experienced, that includes ones that have been released after FFXIV. It’s story is better than some of the main FFs imo.

    But I do agree that they should just make an FF MMO and leave the number off of it.

  • The game was almost flawless at action and gameplay options. Combos with spells and melee and the reaction commands. Imagine if they did FF7 with that but you did new versions of limit breaks and when you used All materia with a spell it shot the spell all all over the place to where enemies last stood. Damn! Badass!

  • Yeah. Because just because you’re hungry mean you swallow just any old thing.
    I’m poor. So I have to go get food from churches that they hand out to the homeless. But if they have a bunch of expired moldy food I won’t eat it. Inferior products or giving something to a person who doesn’t want it isn’t any more helpful than doing nothing.

  • I know it has a story. But with each character that you help or meet how much of them goes really deep into their quirks and motives and childhood? I played the original game and after it was over I couldn’t remember characters names and when I tried to discuss the plot with people all they wanted to do was obsess over equipment. So I quit. To me its story and battle or nothing with an RPG.

  • Guy Dudebro

    They’re going to suck out all the charm of the original and replace it with modern gaming trash. I would happily pay $60 if it were exactly the same but models were improved to Dissidia-level of character details, doesn’t need to look like it cost 50000000000 billion dollars.

  • Noctis Pendragon

    Are they supposed to pull those remakes out of their **** ?

  • ShinGundam

    So true and I hope that will change soon. I would be fine with a game on Persona/FFX scale and scope (world wise) which is not too big compared to modern RPGs.

  • Yuntu

    The demand for a FF5 or 6 remake isn`t nearly as high as you think it is.

  • •december

    why this guy so sour lol

  • Yuntu

    So you want a remaster? But people begged for a remake all those years.

  • Yuntu

    I assume next year will be focused on KH. 2018 will be the FF7R year, because an anniversary goes 1 year so they have time til then.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    ff7remake part 1 = 3-4 years .. kh3 from 2013 – 2018 = 5 years. i think this sounds right. even before e3 this year i thought this

  • Luke Watts

    Yeah I can see a small number of mini series based on each of the playable characters history. like 20 minute shorts for each. I’d almost say that’s a given. There was so much history with all of them, and they where all unique and interesting.

  • 4FFAN

    Ugh. I’m really happy FFXV is coming out and I’m happy they didn’t give us a broken game and decided to delay it instead…but I just HATE that it affects half of Square’s games and schedule –‘

  • NoctLightCloud

    The only thing I’ve always disliked are random encounters. I’m the explorer-type of a gamer, and if the enemy atracks after every 5 steps (+switching to the battle screen takes forever, especially in ff7&ff8), it just kills all the desire to properly explore an area. With 3D-maps and more places to hide items and secrets nowadays, enemies in the same screen (and no seperate screen) are almost a must-have if you want a smooth gaming experience. Otherwise I wouldn’t want to move except if it’s absolutely necessary. If people want a modern version of the round-based battle system, SE will’ll most probably make the enemies visible (like in 13) and give you the chance to either approach or avoid them – much better and less frustrating.
    My personal opinion: Cloud has his huge sword – I wanna experience that feeling of fighting. I’m thinking of a battle system similar to KH2, that would be awesome imo.☆ Plus, switching between the characters during the fight would be the non plus ultra addition! Tifa anyone? 😉 Just take my money!!

  • Strabos2333

    Because you’re actually full of shit, it doesn’t exist, and you’re trying to defend your imaginary boytoy? XD

    Nomura fantoids are remarkably easy to spot: They’re the first to talk about “facts” without presenting any.

  • But it’s there. And tho I love 7 and 10 they get plenty of attention. I just wish they would spread that to 6 at least and give it a game in 3D on PS4 with the voices of Kefka and Terra from Dissidia. If they made the graphics like Setsuna or Chrono Cross it’s wouldn’t cost them much. Hell, bet they could give it a look like WoFF and it’d sell. 7 is great but if they keep bringing it up people will see it as their Magnum Opus and feel like that’s all they ever care about of the old games.

  • Same here. I just want them to do turn-based rpg now and then. I know action rpgs are the future, but let’s not completely nix the past. Modern music is great but people still listen to music from the Woodstock days.

  • No. They could make them cheap with the same graphics are Chrono Cross or Setsuna and put them out as digital only format and I’d still be satisfied. I bet they’d make money too. Because 6 has a fanbase just like 7 and 10. I’m love most FFs but they do too much with 7. After this remake I just hope they show some love to the others. And with full voice acting. Locke and Setzer need SPOKEN DIALOGUE!

  • How would it overshadow anything. XV is in Nov. And the Presentation is Dec. If you ain’t got XV a month after it came out it would be because of a FF7 trailer.

  • Stonespear

    Terrible logic. Nomura spreads himself too thin, it’s well known.

  • Stonespear

    It isn’t though, just a large number of FF fans. Action RPG’s are done far better by western studios. Bethesda, etc.

  • Stonespear

    Because if you want to argue with someone then give them the facts if you’re so sure of your argument. He’s right.

  • Guy Dudebro

    Because instead of getting a whole game, we get episodic chunks because it literally will take them years to render an entire PS1 jrpg world with the level of graphics seen in FFXV.

  • stevenm281

    the term episodic was misused by the media, Square Enix said multi-format series, and later they clarified to look at it like the FF13 saga, which was a trilogy.

    Nomura did say that he wants to add more to the story, including more time with Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie, more backstory about them, as an example.

    If you just want to play the same game with better models, try the PC version with mods.

  • Artemis_Polara

    Interesting, this comment section has become a bit of a war zone… again…

  • Yuntu

    Because that’s the only game in the franchise selling like bonkers.

    To put it in Sakaguchi s words:

    “6 is your favorite? Then why didnt you buy it?”

  • stevenm281

    lol, it happens!

    I’m just glad I ain’t involved in this one.

  • Jesus Christ

    Wait what happened? I aint reading all them comments. summarize! who’s fighting so i can just search them

  • stevenm281

    I don’t know, I haven’t paid much attention.

    Sorry

  • If you say so. Sounds like an opinion.

  • I bought 6 twice. Once on gameboy advance and again on PS3.

  • NewestType

    You say two sentences to prove your point. And there’s no proof of your point … :]
    I actually provided facts. So you should really try again.

    Here I’ll help. Give me examples of all of his endeavors that have failed. Or show me a vast majority of reviews on the 2 things he’s actually created saying they are horrible.

    I agree that he takes long to develop games. But I dont think it’s his choice to split development up for kingdom hearts games and decisions like that.

  • Yuntu

    Im not saying you didnt buy it. What Sakaguchi means is many people say 6 is the best and yet it sales dont reflect that at all. We get more modern-styled FFS because of how sucessful 7 was and the fact that 9 and a 12 sold the lowest since 7 came out.

  • NewestType

    Technically you are kinda involved in everything. With the name and all.

  • Booberino

    Just play the old one with mods if you can’t accept the changes. All the vanilla boys get mad about not getting the same game which is ridiculous. It is remake not remaster.

  • Ryuke

    FFXIV is definitely not a series of quests loosely strung together. It has as much story as any numbered FF title, the story being far superior to a lot of the main line FF stories as well. Story is probably FFXIV’s strongest point, and what it receives the highest praise for. Can’t disagree more with your statement.

    I wouldn’t mind FF MMO’s to not carry a main number though, and be their own “spin off” so to speak, but I guess carrying a number draws more players in.

  • Ryuke

    The reason there is even going to be a FFVII Remake is because fans asked for it. Besides, they are game developers, not parents. What people want is not always best, and they are definitely not obligated to “provide” fans with everything they ask for.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Agreed, pretty sure random encounters won’t be a thing in this game though.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Whatever wording you want to use, the fact that they said each “episode” will be a full game’s worth of content is a win for us, right?

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Exactly. And remaking VII is way different from remaking V or VI.

  • stevenm281

    indeed it is

  • Yuntu

    Did you seriously just say Bethesda makes better action RPGs than Kingdom Hearts? I`ve heard it all.

  • Yuntu

    Yeah. Because he just starts working on games and doesn´t get the work loaded on him by SE.

    All his fault, he decides his own budget and time for all his projects and the managemant at SE has nothing to do with it … wait.

    I hope you see the problem in your statement.

  • ΑΝΟΛΑ

    I have yet to find another developer that makes worse combat systems than Bethesda.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I hope so, and I’m glad that they’re abandoning random encounters, it’s just a pain…

  • stevenm281

    You do realize he’s not the one asking for so many projects? He even said it himself when FF7R was revealed, he learned he was the director by watching the announcement trailer.

    He’s an employee and its Square Enix higher ups whom drop those projects on him.

  • D.3ND

    I feel like i’ve seen this comment before….

  • stevenm281

    highly possible lol

  • I’m not saying their obligated. Never once said that or even implied it. My point is, if they like money, then making another game many ask for would be beneficial. I would buy FF6 remade just as sure as I will buy FF7.

  • Yes, the online FFs should be spin off. That’s my point.

  • So all that matters is money? Unless FF6 sells like crazy as a digital file on PSN then no more talk of it will reach Square’s ears? If all that matter is sales then they need to never do anything like 13, LR, or 13-2 again. They should just make ever game similar to FF7 or 8 or 10 from now on.
    I believe that if people are even talking about it, it matters. But then again, that’s why I’m an artist and not a company man so what do I know?

  • Yuntu

    Of course its all about money lol

    That`s the reason why FF13 is like FF7 or why FF15 is also one of the modern FFs

    Welcome to every industry ever, money talks

  • I already know it’s about money. I just thought “by popular demand” matter too. It’s not like FF6 sold nothing.

  • Yuntu

    Yeah. But people screamed for a FF7 remake not a 6 one all those years

  • But once 7 is done they’ll be nothing holding them up. I mean they did a remake for FF4 that was voiced and in 3D and it was on DS and PSP. All I ask is for FF6 to get a remake of that game’s same quality. Wouldn’t break the bank for them to do that.

  • Yuntu

    That FF4 remake was done because FF4 is really popular in Japan.

  • And 6 isn’t? Define “really popular”? Sold millions of copies before it got remade? Don’t most FFs do that?

  • Yuntu

    No. FF4 is one of the most popular entries in Japan. Thats the reason it got that weird “sequel” you mentioned and the remake on DS.

  • So at this point FF6 is a lost cause? There nothing I can do? Not even a petition?

  • Yuntu

    Petitions do nothing either.

    No. It´s not a lost cause. But don´t make yourself any hope.

  • Stonespear

    None of this argues against the fact that he spreads himself too thin. His work has deteriorated.

    If you don’t care about the site, feel free to leave. Your anger means nothing to anyone.

  • Stonespear

    Kingdom hearts is terrible. The gameplay is poor and the stories goofy.

  • Stonespear

    Sales. Not opinion.

  • Yuntu

    No. The story has a Goofy though.

  • Jesus Christ

    AYE, you seen the new stormblood teaser trailer? WHO’s THAT GORGEOUS MAN!?

  • stevenm281

    the hot monk?

    he’s the main guy (Warrior of Light) altho he looks much different with a slight beard and highlights in his hair, his class/job changes with every expansion.

  • Jesus Christ

    Yeah I noticed that on tumble people puttign comparison pictures.

  • The reason why I care so much is it’s a deep and dark tale to stuck with me almost as much as X or 9 or 7 did. Other than Chrono Cross and 7 it’s been a major inspiration for me as a writer and artist. But with it never getting voiced or remade with 3D model, I feel like the story will never move beyond what it was.
    Modern FFs are fine, but I hope the mix it up and do something like 6 again for 16.

  • Krijn van Alten

    I am gay, so even if you liked me it shouldn’t have worked.

  • Yuntu

    Well Nomura would like to do it. But, if it ever happens, it´s not gonna be anytime soon and is probably years away.

  • CRIMSON-XIII

    i personally have thought e3 2017 since the beginning of this year . you dont know me sir. but you can continue thinking what you want. and its not just ff7remake, ff7remake, kh3, ni no kuni 2.,

    its not rocket science. no one needed nomura telling them that it wont be this winter. and btw, kh3 wont be this winter based on his recent comments, ff7remake could be at PSX. im just saying e3 2017 because it wont be out before then.
