A friend sent me this link. Never heard of the source but i couldn't find anything to suggest it was a satire site or something of the sort.

Report: Final Fantasy VII is Getting a PS4 Remake for its 20th Anniversary

Final Fantasy VII is arguably the most often-requested remake, and longtime fans may be getting their wish. According to Siliconera's sources, Square Enix is remaking Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4 in honor of its upcoming 20th anniversary. This is said to be a full remake, and not the previously-announced port. Cloud will have a more modern style, similar to his look in Dissidia Final Fantasy or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Square Enix has not confirmed this report at this time, but an announcement could be coming soon.

I hope they hire some Team Ninja people to handle Tifa jiggle physics.

Even if they ARE I still wouldn't, they'll probably butcher it.

Wow, thanks for finally giving me a real reason to re-implement [-].

Only things I'd like to see are slight graphics touch-ups and off course translation corrections.

EDIT: Honestly, I think FF7, 8, and 9 would make good 3DS port candidates.

12 was good, and in fact, I hope they do an HD release so I can replay it.

For me, 12 was the last good FF. I don't include XIV because it is something very different.

12 is probably the worst FF in the series, 8 being a close contender.

FFIX got the shaft, by being pushed out as the PS1 was dying (and it looks great for a PS1 game, but bad compared to its contemporaries). If it'd been able to wait until the PS2, it'd be considered one of the all time classics.

New Game+ and remove the JPonry from the Jump Rope minigame and I'm game.

While I didn't like 13 very much, I did like 13-2 and 13-3 a lot more. I mean the stories weren't the best, but I liked the gameplay a lot. I spent a ton of time in 13-2 making custom monsters. I can't even begin to think how many Tonberries I killed for their magic and strength +35% skills.

I'd like a remake with the ability to use temporary characters outside of story scenes. Like Cinna, Marcus, Blank, and Beatrix. Kinda like stand-ins for other characters like the Laguna scenarios from 8, their stats would just be transferred from the host character.

You have to be joking...

I think VIII suffers from its association with the FF brand. If it'd been named "Squall's Adventure, or Whatever, I Guess", it'd be considered a much better game historically.

Following up on FFVII was always going to be impossible, but VIII really gets the short stick for it.

I don't have enough time to tell people how inferior their opinions are. So I'll just watch this conversation from my throne of ultimate FF knowledge. *sips a yagudo drink*

I loved VIII for what it was, not for what it was expected to be. I love a game with an in-universe encyclopedia like VIII's Tutorial section which explains back story and lore.

Also, XII is fine once you realize that Balthier is the main character.

At most for IX I'd want slightly better character models to remove the jaggies and maybe make the faces/hands a bit better (Dissidia's model was good) but nothing to alter the towns or dungeons. Maybe make the overworld a little better but if they do too much (like in 3 and 4) it kinda loses its charm and can feel like a different game imo.


Updating the music would be a good thing too but not too much, the simple melodies are what we remember and if you make them too busy it can kinda ruin it. That's what I've had trouble with recently, the tracks sound a bit too busy and they tend to blend into one another and it's not as memorable for me.


Might just be me though

XII HD would be very welcome from me, I love the way it looks on PCSX2 with 6x native

They need to fix Vaan's abs though

I saw it as jumping between Ashe and Balthier's stories. Vaan is just an everyman point of view.
