Could be that... I can't see them creating different demos now.
Yeah, if they show new uninterrupted footage from now on (that isn't the Bombing Run) is going to be from whatever build they have of the entire game.
Let me have a fucked up menu colour scheme again, you cowards.
Honestly I can’t even imagine how they’ll handle it and I think that’s why I’m so excited. It’s a long way off though considering they only turn up along with MeteorI do wonder how the Weapon battles will be handled. I worry they'll just be huge spectacle things with QTEs. I did hear a cool idea that I think could work if it was mixed with lots of action and dodging - using multiple casts of Mini to shrink them down to FFXV Iron Giant size.
Oh yes i would love this, even if i too would keep the blue but that would be a nice nostalgia touch.
September 7th was a Sunday that year.
I hope they go with this as the cover.
I don’t think so, personally. We live in a day and age where a vast majority of people who play games also regularly use the internet, plus most games that have a story split into multiple parts don’t have a “Part 1” in the first title. I obviously expect some whining from the probably very small amount of uninformed people who played the original and then blindly buy this, but that’s about it.
Do you think it's not the case that people just see games are out at game stores and buy them? Not everyone is as 'online' as us.I think it's going to be damn near impossible to buy it and not realise that it's only the first part. One of the first results when you Google FF7 Remake tells you that it's split into parts, most articles around the game make it clear it's not a full remake, reviews certainly will as well and the PSN store states that it's the first part so it's a safe bet that a physical copy will as well.
The number of people who will pick up the game in March and be shocked that it's not a full remake can probably be counted on one hand.
Yeah there are still people who do buy games off the shelves without doing much research. I hope it says that it is just the first part on the back of the box at least.
Oh, that definitely happens! But since the PSN store clearly states that this is only the Midgar portion it's a safe assumption that physical copies will do the same.
I agree, but will there be much overlap between those people and people who are well-versed on the original and so are expecting more? Or would they largely just buy the game, play it, and see what I assume will be a lengthy experience with a pretty satisfying ending that sets up a sequel, like many games these days? And that's if they even beat it at all, I heard most players of a game never do.
They are blowing this out of proportions. They act like casuals can't read.Oh, that definitely happens! But since the PSN store clearly states that this is only the Midgar portion it's a safe assumption that physical copies will do the same.
I just can't see the lack of a subtitle or "Part 1" being a big issue. It's only going to be an issue to people who never look up the game online and don't look at the PSN store description or the box. Which would likely be an incredibly small number of people.
I could easily see some more casual players reading about the 'multi-part saga' and, by making an assumption from the title, thinking this means that they're 'rebuilding' the original game in the first entry and 'expanding' the story in the sense of continuing it with sequels. It never explicitly says it's only set in Midgar, just that it begins there.A spectacular reimagining of one of the most visionary games ever, FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE rebuilds and expands the legendary RPG for today.
The first entry in a multi-part saga, delivering a level of depth inconceivable for the original. Mind-blowing story, unforgettable characters, epic battles and technical excellence collide.
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet's very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra's elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
that's fukin deep
I think I see some people misunderstanding this demo play from Dengeki and Famitsu.
Makes sense, yeah (I was expecting the old demo anyways, as I thought the title was just a fancy name or a result of translating from Japanese).I think I see some people misunderstanding this demo play from Dengeki and Famitsu.
Both famitsu and Dengeki are saying "Advance gameplay of TGS demo"
When they say "advance", it just means playing the TGS demo in advance (earlier) compared to the public who will actually go to the even and play it themselves. It specifically says it will be TGS demo that they are playing.
Unless the public TGS demo is different from E3/Gamescom (other than the language), it won't be anything different.
It seems like Nomura's latest interview said something along the line "Kitase will deliver latest information at the venue"Makes sense, yeah (I was expecting the old demo anyways, as I thought the title was just a fancy name or a result of translating from Japanese).
I do hope that whatever they have on Saturday at Sony's stage isn't that, especially since it's not a very meaty demo and we've already seen it in pieces and even leaked.
I know it's most likely out of Nomura not really liking being in these kinds of things too much and him being busy, but I love the, well, love Kitase's getting so far in the marketing of this game, which is nice considering his history with VII. Both him and Ito are living legends that I wish to see returning to directing roles all the time.
Wasn't there some info a while ago where Kitase said he was in charge of certain floor in the Shinra building?I know it's most likely out of Nomura not really liking being in these kinds of things too much and him being busy, but I love the, well, love Kitase's getting so far in the marketing of this game, which is nice considering his history with VII.

I wonder how much more involved he is with Remake's development compared to his other games as producer.
Didn't know about the Shinra Building stuff, but yep, I found this: "...Kitase will be in charge of designing and planning of floors 69 and 70 of the Shinra Building in the game, apparently because he has a fondness for the content in question".Wasn't there some info a while ago where Kitase said he was in charge of certain floor in the Shinra building?
I am assuming Kitase is a lot more heavily involved in producing this game compared to other games such as FFXIII trilogy since he was the one who directed the orignal. I feel Nomura and Hamaguchi would consult Kitase regarding a lot of the aspects.
I always took impression that Kitase was laid-back and not too deep into actual game development when he was producing XIII, and was more of PR stuff.... I mean there was famous diss from Sakaguchi about Kitase's roll as a producer.
Like you said, I feel Kitase doing a lot of PR stuff is mainly because Nomura doesn't like public appearance, and only shows up when he absolutely has to (like at E3).
nice warm-up swing, cloud
That sequence was very special and creepy to me for two reasons
Preach it“No Part 1 in title?!?! False advertising! Preorder cancelled/returned!”
Look, people ain’t gonna give a fuckity-fuck come March.
The game will drop with a 92 meta, people will be digging into Midgar, and then holding their empty bowls out for the second game... stars in their eyes!
