I can’t even even keep it together as I am writing this post! It’s finally here:
Final Fantasy VII – The Remake
Sony is sure to keep PlayStation 4 on the map with this. A remake for FFVII has been talked about for LONG YEARS now within gamers from all over advocating for such a masterpiece of a story to be retold through the power of new technologies. I sustain the latter as a fact as the combined video count for the trailer surpasses 10 million views – more than various of the games trailers shown for E3 like Uncharted 4 and Halo 5.
It has come to my attention (sadly) that the new FFVII’s storyline will have drastic changes in comparison to the previous FFVII for the PlayStation. It rubs me the wrong way those kind of rumors are floating around (and I’ll be damn hurt to the deepest part of my core), but let’s be honest here: I am pretty certain that being able to play with such a beloved cast outweighs the fact of the story not being the exact same as it’s predecessor. However, Tetsuya Nomura (Japanese video game artist, designer, and director for Square Enix), stated there are certain plots in the game will be left untouched. Leaving us to think changes are to be expected. Another one of the rumored changes was that the character list may be altered by adding and/or subtracting characters. However, Nomura has confirmed the roster will be intact and moving on forward headstrong – YAAAAY! Not saying I approve of changes, I am just saying it would be refreshing to not see them like this anymore:
With no release date yet, we can only sit and try to manage our anxiety and depressive symptoms while we wait for this wonderful for such treasure to materialize. A release date of 2017 has been rumored. Though it might be longer since Nomura is also working on Kingdom Hearts 3 which also does not have a release date – a handful for sure.
Are you ready?
