Final Fantasy 7 Remake - Trailers, story & gameplay insights and additional information

Recommended Posts

This scene is from a live gameplay with Yoshinori Kitase (producer & scenario writer for Final Fantasy 7) at the Tokio Game Show (TGS) 2019.

It seems to be like a radically awesome overcrossing between Final Fantasy 7 and the Battle Arena Toshinden or Soul Calibur series.

Totally love the light/special effects and detailed graphics, the really outstanding slow motion mode, the crisp and powerful sound of the slashes, strikes and blows...
... and of course the vital orchestration of the famous battle theme. ))

Pretty cool innovation that summons will actively participate in the battle as well.
I'm kinda sure they 'll also implement a function with which you can level up and evolve the skills of a summon (just like the Espers in FF6 or the Guardian Forces from FF8).

If they also spend something like a multiplayer-option for that really catching and highly dynamic battle system, it would be kinda awesome to be able to play the game with good friends as well.

Just straight from the gameplay insights this might be a real revolution within the RPG playing standards.
If the pretty deep story will be told as dedicated as in the original game and contains a lot of additional side stories as well, Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be something like the game of the year/decade or even century and really interesting for the newbies, as well for the fans of the original game.

Square Enix as a Japanese company simply knows how to create outstanding games with deep storylines.
I'll definitely keep a staring eye at this one.

Besides, here 's the complete recording of the gameplay demonstration.

Square Enix...games with deep storylines

they sure used to! i don't know as much about more recently.

the trailer looks very interesting. i'm definitely interested in the game to the point of being willing to buy the console if it doesn't go cross-platform (at least eventually, likely not right away).

Nier Automata is pretty deep. FFXIV expansions like Heavensward and Stormblood are also up there.

There 's also a new Japanese commercial with real actors (not directly related to the storyline) for the FF7 remake.

And finally it got an English translation - at least partially.
It's obviously some kind of a reminiscence that should make the REUNION feeling go viral.

But furthermore it shows that even Japanese commercials like this are made with love, dedication and the typical Japanese humor.

That's touching that the otaku fan didn't want the MC's girlfriend to spoil a certain event in halfway through the game. T_T

A new trailer for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake was released a few days ago.

Here it goes - with English language (which - I think - has the best and most fitting voice acting) and English subtitles as well:

the addition of classic battle mode allayed the one real fear i had about this release. i'm not preordering it, but i'm certainly willing to pay full price after it's out if the reviews aren't a mess.

What was your great fear in this case - that the former Active Time Battle system could become too active? :D

I mean - despite my passion for former Final Fantasy games - I really like the newer, more active fighting stuff and gameplay you could find in Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 or in the Dissidia: Final Fantasy games.

And with the new slow motion feature implemented in the new Final Fantasy 7 Remake with which you you can slow down and enjoy special scenes if you want or need to, it totally meets my deepest desires for a modern RPG containing an old, but legendary story. ))

A happy New Year's Day begins with a bombing (mission) trailer
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, that's a really nice start in the new year.

Yesterday, I just worked on my remix for the legendary Final Fantasy 7 battle theme "Those who fight" with a good friend for some hours and we tried out a few innovations in thinks like composition and sound design - straight into the beginning of the New Year (of course we also watched some old New Year's Eve videos from my beginning pyrotechnics-dynamite-building days with my really rad technical instructions for this stuff - where we nearly pissed ourselves with laughter ^^) ...

... and at the same day, the New Year's Day, so... today, the newest trailer of the wishfully anticipated remake of Final Fantasy 7 arises from the depths of the internet.

The trailer represents the radically revised and slightly extended intro of the original game from 1997.
Of course, I was totally blown away by the whole atmosphere, by all the graphical details and the really (amazingly) bombastic sound effects which I could radically absorb into my world with the help of my pretty well-resourced and dearly beloved home recording studio.
 

Unfortunately, they seemed to have removed the "trailer" of the intro (was obviously not an official one - just a part from a new demo gameplay streaming that has been leaked and uploaded by a few people).

Maybe this whole streaming of the new demo might remain on Youtube for a while.



I think...
The remake of Final Fantasy 7 will be probably much larger and more meaningful than most of the die-hard fans of the original game could ever have dreamed of. ))

Haha, just wanted to post the new one - but yeah... "The early bird catches the worm."... or something like that.

Damn, I really like the huge amount of new scenes.
I guess, they 've put lots of time, efforts and dedication straight in the game. ))

the music for that opening section is really interesting. i love how they're combining themes and the "estuans interius" lyrics with such a different style than you usually hear it.

Yeah, it's really interesting to see or hear in which many different ways you can alternate soundtracks to get certain psychoacoustic effects for a different atmosphere or how you can merge different soundtracks with the help of vital transitions (to get the impression that it was always one coherent soundtrack).

Besides...
Since you have mentioned "music" in this context...

There's already a Youtube video which contains some of the soundtracks of the first episode of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
I guess these soundtracks could be the tracks which are on the mini soundtrack CD within the Deluxe and the 1st Class Edition of the remake.

I just saw that they're keeping the cross-dressing Cloud bit, at least from the most recent teaser videos.  Totally the best part of this game.  Uh...said no one ever??  RIP me.

I actually just purchased an ps4 for this. Demo was much amaze. 

Since I only own my very first Playstation, my PS2 and PS3 as consoles and skipped the PS4, I plan to play the first episode together with my best friends and go straight for PS5 afterwards - because there might be a PS5 version for the FF7 remake episodes as well:
