Nope, they stated a while back they went with the title on purpose. I don't think it's the worst thing ever; people go into first parts of movies with no idea there's a planned sequel, for instance.
I wasn't suggesting Rude was black, I was suggesting he was whitewashed. Nomura originally designed him to look "South American." He's noticeably paler than in the original game.
I hate turn-based combat for the most part especially the traditional FF way so I'm cool with this change.I hate, HATE not having a turn based option, but the combat doesn't look so bad I guess as long as the AI is good and knows to block and stuff like that when you aren't controlling that character, just the idea of having to constantly be moving and switching and fiddling is so unappealing to me.
Except FF7 was a finished game 22 years ago, it probably should be called Part 1. It really is probably gonna get some backlash, most people don't know it's just Midgar.
Nomura confirmed it's in. And now we've seen Don Corneo and Aerith in her gorgeous dress. It's gonna be in there alright!
Lol If you are playing a lower difficulty maybe. Try just button mashing on Critical Mode and see how far it gets you. Also, remember all those years ago when we joked about FF7R being made of SE ever got in trouble? This game is going to sell like hotcakes.
Excuse my ignorance, but have they settled on how many different releases they want to have for the different sections?
SE has said they don't even know how many games the remake will be. They aren't following the the original discs, because that wouldn't really work. Remake part 1 is just Midgar, albeit expanded. That was only a portion of disc 1 of the original, disc 1 was over half the game and had basically the entire game world available. And disc 3 was basically just the final dungeon, and wouldn't have really supported a whole game the same way Midgar does.Excuse my ignorance, but have they settled on how many different releases they want to have for the different sections?
Eg, have they stated it will follow the literal disc changes from the OG?
Or is it completely unknown where each episode release will start and end?
We've seen Shinra HQ...Looks mostly good, although at this point we've seen basically everything except Shinra HQ and whatever new content there is.
Also the Turks look like children. I get that pretty boy is the aesthetic they're going for - especially Reno - but they're not even slightly intimidating. Also agree that Rude should be more tanned.
It's funny, because I also prefer the demonic takes on him, but my favourite instance of him is VIII's. Although I'm a sucker for the aesthetics, vibes and designs in VIII above most FFs, so there's that. I also thought the twist of him in XV was great, and such an amazing design while still retaining a hellish form (despite him essentially being a very tall human).Gotta be honest, I hated animal Ifrit (FFVIII, FFIX, FFX). I'm a classic FF fan, so I love me my humanoid demon Ifrit, and from the looks of it, FFVIIR's Ifrit is a considerable change from the Crisis Core redesign, which has me happy (not a fan of the FFVII Compilation). For one, it looks like FFVIIR's Ifrit has old school Ifrit's purple hair. Second, he has human-like feet as opposed to Crisis Core's Ifrit's hooves:
Also, just noiticing right now, FFVIIR's Ifrit's horns extend up and back vertically (like original) rather than out to the side and back horizontally (like Crisis Core's Ifrit). Basically, they are extended out, hovering over his head's side more than extending out and hovering down over his back like a lot of past Ifrits.
If you look, FFVIIR's Ifrit also has the spine ridges coming through his back like above.
But for that, they need to have a beginning, middle and end as well for a satisfying stand-alone experience. Unless they change a lot of the story element, the original story covering Midgar only is far too short to have any sort of depth for a complete story. So you just end up with a cliffhanger that blatantly sets up for a sequel. Movies are different because they're short enough that you don't get so invested in the time on the medium, but for a game you want a conclusion at the end, not to be hit with a 'to be continued...' when the game cover doesn't even hint at there being more games to follow.
My only complaint is Tifa's body. She looks like a stickfigure with boobs. Like, her head doesn't fit her body at all what the hell? The proportions are off. It's crazy because Jesse and aerith look fine.
I see. Thanks. Last played it years ago, couldn't remember how the disc / game structure was distributed.SE has said they don't even know how many games the remake will be. They aren't following the the original discs, because that wouldn't really work. Remake part 1 is just Midgar, albeit expanded.

And disc 3 was basically just the final dungeon, and wouldn't have really supported a whole game the same way Midgar does.
I mean, technically it's "the whole game". It's just that the whole game is not the entire OG FFVII scenario. But content-wise this is supposedly as content-packed as any singular mainline FF, so I doubt most people will have a problem if they get, like, a 25-30+ hour experience that gives them what these trailers promise them, even if there is a to be continued.
Looks to be more of a sampler soundtrack: eight tracks from the Remake, 12 tracks from the 1997 OST. Here's a translation of the included tracks:
