New trailer (thanks @JD)

Final Fantasy VII Remake details story, Cloud, Aerith, event scenes, battle system, and locations: https://gematsu.com/2019/06/final-fantasy-vii-rema...

1st Class Edition (original thread)

Was hoping for something ... better, as they've previous released Play Arts Kai figures with Cloud on his bike (although I do regret selling my Cloud on Fenrir). That and it's a soft bundle. They're packing three items together. Should have been an epic Cloud vs. Sepiroth statue, but assumption is that they'll release a CE for part 2, part 3, and then a trilogy CE in which the badass stuff will be released. Sons a doges, they're gonna milk the holy hell out of this one and I'll be one of those idiots that will buy every version of each release.

Still, it's pretty awesome and pre-bought two!

Couldn't have said it better. This new gamer mentality that $60 should include everything involving the game ever is ridiculous. I get being annoyed at microtransactions, but these companies are supposed to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on games when the price of the game itself hasn't went up - why? They're changed the entire game, new engine, new voicework, etc. They're supposed to just give it away? Don't buy it and move on if that's you're a spoiled brat about it.

Any idea when the full game will be released? that is when i would like to play it, i don't get why people are so excited to play 1 part of a game and then have to wait for more.

it was said that having part 1 done will speed up certain parts of the development of the second part, but id still expect part 2 to be a ways out. it will be a few years before all the parts are out, even if its only 2 or 3 parts it could be 2024 or 5 easily if it takes a couple years to make each part. they havent even started the post midgar section of the game apparently and that is most of the game, midgar was like 5 hours in the original and now its a whole game.

dam, guess I'll just replay the original and then take a long break till they finish the whole game.

What a horrible way to release a game people have been wanting for so long, they buy the game get really into it and then they leave you hanging and you have to wait months or a year for part 2 and then repeat for the rest.. This just looks like a real greedy way to get people to pay 4+ times more for one game.it just looks like a really bad way to treat fans/customers. i just hope other companies don't start doing this, Because you know there are always people that will buy something no matter the cost. this game will make a ton of money and other big greedy companies like Activision might think hey we should release our next big games like this! with micro transactions+loot boxes! lol

ya i plan to do that as well before the remake hits.

i wonder if there is a way you can DL a file folder with everything already set up and just replace your current game files?

doubt it. i might just buy it for the switch, i remember playing it on my psp and thought the game looked better on a small screen or i might try it on an emulator make it 4k and adjust some settings.

I don't really understand this. It's not 'one game' if it takes like 6 years to make, is massive and gives you 40 hours game play per purchase - it's 50-100 gigs. They're breaking it into parts because the individual parts are like a full game in itself and fully fleshed out. You're acting like the game is going to be 5 hours of lazy remake. It's not.

Agreed. All this doging over 3 parts feels just like the cry babies of Starcraft 2 who later realized that it worked and was the right move.

Sure it'd be great to get it all at once but clearly this is a massive undertaking. I'd rather see incrimental releases vs wait X more years.

Whats hard to understand? i don't like the idea of buying a game in parts and waiting years to finish it. it is one game, it has one story or am i missing something? is each part going to have a different story and different people? i rather they just release the full game and they make money of pre-orders, sales and dlc or whatever. i have no problem spending more for a game i like,But the way they are handling the release of this game is straight up greedy bullcrap lol

I think if Square had done this with a new game it wouldn't be a big deal (see FFXIII), but taking a game that was sold by itself 20 years ago then breaking it up into 3,4,5...however many parts it ends up being, and reselling it in parts is a bit shady. Problem is that square effed this whole thing up themselves. They announced it WAY too early then outsourced it then scrapped it all to start from scratch inhouse. If they had done this correctly from the beginning they could probably had the whole thing done shortly after its current release date

I'm trying to imagine the first three hours of the game taking up 40 instead.

I'm not sure I like what the implication of that is moving forward.

This terrifies me because I just don't trust modern Square Enix storytelling especially when Nomura is involved. I could see a scenario where it takes them 10 years to tell the whole story. That said, everything I've seen so far has been very encouraging. The game looks phenomenal so it gives me a bit of hope that this might actually come together.

The first time I played FF VII I think it took me 12 hours to get through Midgar. But 40?

Ya Nomura is a great designer but he is a dumpster fire as a director or anything beyond that. im hoping Kitase will keep him reigned in. the story is already written so they will just be expanding upon certain parts and things, so hopefully they wont get too off the rails in that regard. I can also see this being a ten year undertaking, if its 3 or 4 parts and each part takes 2 or however many years to make this could take awhile. after this first one is done lots of the assets will be done so that will help, but this is probably jumping to ps5 at some point but if its backward compatible that shouldnt slow them down too much. they've said it will save some time that many assets will be done but that wont speed things up toooo much, kitase has inferred there could be significant time between to make sure they're right. square wouldnt do this project for years and they always said we cant do it because the tech doesnt exist for this to be the greatest project we've ever done because if its not people will see it as a failure.
