FFVII Remake Thread

As far as I know, there's never been an official number of parts announced.

So you'll probably be able to play the entirety of the FF7 remake on the FF7 collection coming out March 2029 on your PS6.

Three would make the most sense from a story standpoint, since the original game essentially took place in three arcs.

1. Midgar
2. Chasing Sephiroth around the world
3. Meteor and The Weapons

Game 1 would end with the Motorcycle Escape from Midgar. Game 2 would start at Kalm with the flashback and end at the Northern Crater with Meteor being summoned. Game 3 would start at Junon with Sapphire Weapon's attack.

Aeris' death will absolutely conclude one of the parts. No way they keep one of the games going right away after that. I would split it up in 5 by each conclusion:

1. Escape from Midgar
2. Aeris's Death
3. Return to Midgar
4. Cloud is sick
5. Final stretch to Sephiroth

There is nowhere near enough material to have 3-5 take place over three games. You also have 3 and 4 in the wrong order, but that's a more minor issue (and you could have easily just made a mistake). But how do you make a whole game on Cloud being the Lifestream or the final dungeon with Sephiroth. They'd either be like two hours long or the most boring games of all-time that they fill it with nothing but pointless fetch quests for padding.
 
Also I don't know how good an idea it is to assume it'll be exactly the same storylines as the original game. A lot will added and removed, so who knows how it all will shake out. It's going to alter enough to make it its own series.

Im fully expecting a lot of the side quests to be cut main game. If you ignore all of that the plot is pretty thin.

1: escape midgar
2: learn about seph and aeirths death
3: go after hojo in midgar and cloud gets sick
4: the planet summons the weapons and we take seph on.

Maybe they'll add the extended universe into it. I never played any of the spin off games.

Crisis core was amazing.

Dirge of cerberus was a bland 3rd person shooter but had a good story.

So at some point they have to put a subtitle or a Part 1 or something on this, right? Otherwise there are going to be a lot of pissed off people when they realize this isn't the full game.

Probably not, it was well discussed when it was announced that it would be episodic but a simple "episode 1" subtitle would probably stop fans buying it.

I was just reading there and each "episode" is alledgedly the same length as FF 13.

Well discussed when it was announced FIVE YEARS AGO. Between the time and the more casual game players who don't follow every bit of news, there's going to be a not insignificant amount of people who think this is a full remake

The demo was pretty cool. I'm still not a fan of them stretching it out to multiple games, though. Maybe if they are able to flesh out Midgar and make it feel like the giant city it looks like that could be interesting.

I've lost interested in this franchise and won't even bother getting this. I am however looking forward to Bravely Default II. Those games are far more like the Final Fantasy games I grew up with than the actual Final Fantasy games.

I was hoping this would be a return to form, but it looks to just be more of the same that we've gotten recently.

They've haven't said. They're doing their best to not make it obvious they've split it at all. I suspect theres going to be a LOT of WHAT THE FUCK THE GAME ENDED HERE? Reactions online the next couple of werks.

Based on everything I've heard they've been rather shady in their promotion of this game.

I’m just about to meet X for the first time. Been putting that shit off. Going to make myself play in a little bit. So I’m barely even in there yet. The lighting in the game gives me anxiety.

Back of the box, in a font size smaller than the rest of the text on the back (excluding the bottom section with the usual game info and rating and copyright shit etc.):

"The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the part's escape from Midgar and goes deeper into the events occurring in the city than the original Final Fantasy VII."

So they've covered themselves from false/misleading advertising lawsuits, but this just convinces me further that they've intentionally tried to hide the fact it's in multiple parts. Shady shit Square, shady shit.

It was never officially stated. But it was reported everywhere which I don’t like. If I was a casual fan and saw this in the shelf. I’d say “oh there’s that final fantasy everyone harps on about”

Then with the endgame

There are ghost things called whisperers who are there to ensure the game follows the same plot as 1997. Sephiroth is aware of them and is trying to destroy them with clouds help to change the future. As a result we are now entering a new timeline. And fucking ZACK is alive. And so is BIGGS.

Can someone explain why it's so bright under the plate? I keep looking up and the plate covers 95% of the sky but it's so bright in the slums.
