Final Fantasy VII

When Square Enix remade the opening scene for Final Fantasy 7 on the PlayStation 3, countless pledges began to give the entire game the same treatment. The hope came again with Square Enix started remaking all the older Final Fantasy titles for Nintendo platforms.

Last year’s PlayStation Experience provided one of the greatest trolls in gaming history where Square Enix showed the logo of Final Fantasy VII and announced that the PC port of the game will be brought to PlayStation 4.

This morning word is going around that Square Enix is planning to announce a complete remake of Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4. This could be what we’ve waited so long for or just another disappointment that we’ve come to expect. We’ll keep you updated through out the day!

    I’m not falling for this one. At least not yet.

  • Taiyaki

    This and Shenmue III, it’s happening! …. I hope. :/

      Just yesterday morning, I’d have been sarcastically commenting about how “we’ll also get an official Earthbound Zero release”… and yet here we are. I’m not holding my breath, but if this happens, then Squeenix is finally doing something right.

      Yeah it’s not that it wouldn’t be popular or that they wouldn’t want to do it, but the people usually clamoring for an HD remake probably don’t realize that there’s been no easy way to do it. They’re basically just making a whole new game, except they’ve already got the story and character design started.

      I’d love to see it, but as you said I’m not getting my hopes up. It’ll be a big undertaking for them.

    • Tara

      I’m just gonna go on record saying that if it were such a big undertaking, they probably should not have made that tech demo of the FFVII opening 10 years ago. They really kinda set themselves up for the whining and begging.

      That said, it truly is a lot of work, and I don’t know if modern Squeenix could handle it.

    I’ve learned how to manage my expectations with regards to SE over the years. As such I simply hope for:
    -a demo of the upcoming Final Fantasy Type-0 PC with a surprise release date.
    -Final Fantasy XII Remastered
    -some new multiplatform RPG

    ….. not too much to ask for… Right?…. Perhaps?………………

  • Ben Redenbaugh

    I bet it’ll be an HD port of 7 to the PS4.

    • Shaun Becker

      Not an HD port……a complete remake.

    • Ben Redenbaugh

      Yeah just saw the trailer, though it only shows cut scenes, no idea what the gameplay will look like. I tend to be pessimistic on things like this, so I’m not disappointed later.
