FF7 remake. What would you like to see?

So I was wondering what people would like to see in the remake.

I personally don't want anything more than a cosmetic one. Add good voice acting and update the look to next gen and I would be happy.

The world map would need the biggest upgrade just because that always looked dated even when it was initially released. Not sure about the pre rendered backgrounds. They looked fantastic then but a fully 3D world when in cities would look nice as well.

As for the story I dont want to see 1 change. Just clean up their translation errors obviously.

Battle system needs to stay too. Only change maybe would be the ability to switch characters like in ffx. But honestly it is fine the way it is.

I was also reading people talking about online chocobo racing and that really got me thinking that could be pretty damn fun. Make the whole gold saucer an online competition with added games and races and things for people that get past the area initially in single player.

Anyways, I know the game is at least a year and a half away probably more but what would everyone else like to see? Phone Post 3.0

I think I saw something yesterday where someone with Square said it would be a shame to waste these gorgeous 3D models on a turn based battle system. That has me concerned. If they mess with the turnbased/ATB battle system and replace it with something like FF13 I'll likely lose all interest. I haven't enjoyed the new FF games because of the battle systems.

I would like some DLC type missions where you get to see other sectors of midgar or do some additional digging into the turks organization orso. That could be a lot of fun. More side quest type content as you progress through the story would be nice too. Like the casino area in midgar where you do the cross dressing scene, they could open that up to make it like a mini gold saucer.

I agree with all that. Without ATB it wouldn't feel like ff7 imo. Phone Post 3.0

I'm looking forward to it but they are going to fuck it up Phone Post 3.0

It would be cool if they implement an option to toggle between multiple battle systems. This seems to big the biggest argument since some believe the original is dated, and want it more current, while others want it unchanged. There's strong opinions on both sides so it would be cool if they have both what they wanted. Phone Post 3.0

I'd like to see FFVI get the remake it deserves instead of the most overrated game of all time.

YES TO FF6. Keep it exactly the same and just upgrade to hd sprites Phone Post 3.0

^On a side note , it's strange that FF3 got the HD treatment when I feel it would have been far more popular for FF6, jmo.

And I hope they don't change too much of the FF7 Material...or the Materia for that matter.

Imo the majority of people who want a remake, want to take the game, with it's story and systems but transfer it into the 3d world in a way that can make it come alive in a whole new way in my view.

So don't fuck it up square, knowing them, I wouldn't be surprised if they're thnking of completely changing the ending of Disc 1 *shudders*.

"You have ONE job square..ONE job!"

I would like the option to play the original with these insane graphics and then the option of playing with some different battle mechanics and whatever new things they add. Hope to see some additions to materia. Phone Post 3.0

Basically release two games the original with improved graphics and another updated version. This would be the best way imo since everyone would be happy. Phone Post 3.0

As I recall, that was FF 3s first remake, and all other FFs had been updated on GBA. Phone Post 3.0

Would be cool to see some new materia and maybe some new characters.

Extra quests would be cool too. Phone Post 3.0

If they change the battle system I hope to god most people boycott the turd they are going to produce. FF has been shit for a decade, the last good one was FFX. Coincidentally, its the last one that had a good turn based battle system.

All they need to do is remake FF7 with ps4 graphics and not change anything. Not take anything away, and not change any existing content, then they can add some additionnal stuff on top like more to do with chocobos, more golden saucer attractions, side quests, etc. But dont touch the core content of the game and especially not the battle or materia system.

This is the one things Square fans have wanted for years. If this is truly for the fans, then they better not fuck with the battle system. Phone Post 3.0

Sorry for the sidetrack,but it looks like Nomura wants that too :) http://venturebeat.com/2015/06/17/nomura-wants-more-final-fantasy-remakes-but-not-from-the-playstation-era/  I'd love if they'd do a remake of this, imagine if they somehow defy the trends these days and actually get a quality voice actor to play Kefka? wow..

Would love to see 6 redone as well as 9.

Also always find it funny how fans of 6 always seem so jealous at the love 7 gets. Phone Post 3.0

6 had the better storyline.  

 

7, of course was a lot of people's first RPG though.

People love 7 like it's the greatest thing ever plain and simple because it was the first Rpg to go mainstream and it's the first for a whole generation of Rpg gamers. Pretty graphics for the time with fancy cinematics with a solid story sealed the deal. A dramatic main character death. Doesn't hurt either(even though the series had done it several times already) Phone Post 3.0

If they give the option of using clouds outfit from advent children I'll be happy. As long as the fight style isn't like final fantasy 13 I'll be happy. If it's like ff15 duscae I will be happy with that. Phone Post 3.0
