Final Fantasy VII remake trailer, details and pictures

SONY is working on a full HD remake of Final Fantasy VII.  It will follow a similar story with similar characters but is being otherwise reworked.

Final Fantasy VII was easily one of my favorite games of all time and I was very pumped to hear about the remake.  SONY recently released the games first trailer.   It looks like this remake is hitting all of the right notes.    Avalanche is back, along with Cloud and crew.

Character Models:
 The character models for the game are all new for each character but are obviously based off the prior versions.   I personally think Cloud looks a tad skinny here but that may just be lighting.

Gameplay wise it is supposed to be an active seamless system as opposed to a command and control style.

The story will be similar to the original but not an exact copy.  There will be some added depth to certain parts of the story as well as an occasional twist.

One interesting thing about the game is that due to the increase of quality of graphic they are unable to jam it all into one release.  So it is going to come out in multiple releases. I could not find how many releases it is being broke down into.

 I will continue to follow the game to give up to date news.

More Interview details from Famitsu:

  • The official title is Final Fantasy VII Remake. This is because they wanted to convey to users that it’s a remake rather than a spin-off or sequel.
  • Various companies, including CyberConnect2, are assisting development. However, CyberConnect2’s production tastes differ from that of Square Enix’s, so the two companies are keeping very close with each other. Director Tetsuya Nomura was annoyed by the direction of the latest trailer, so Square Enix changed it to be closer to its own style.
  • Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children‘s models aren’t being used because they’re more than 10 years old and are too deformed (in the sense that they’re unrealistic). Each part of the remake’s models have been adjusted many times over to be a proper balance between realistic and deformed.
  • The entirety of the latest trailer is all in-game, except for the snippets from the E3 2015 teaser trailer. You can alter the camera angle during the train scene.
  • Cloud looks skinny due to his white skin and the lighting.
  • The scenario where Cloud cross-dresses for Don Corneo will still be in the game, but it hasn’t been designed yet.
  • The ATB gauge is there, but it’s not the type where you wait for it to fill up and then attack. Instead, it’s its own system that lends to the action of this game. Its name might also be changed. Nomura says you should pay particular attention to when the gauge turns red.
  • There are three-member parties and you can switch freely between them. You can also just control one character if you don’t want to switch.
  • You’ll be able to explore various locations in Midgar that you couldn’t explore in the original game.
  • The quality of the latest trailer is just the starting point. Now that they’re able to showcase the direction of the remake, they’re moving into polishing.
