Sorry about going off the grid for awhile, between the heat, lack of sleep, being sick, probably from the heat and other crud, I felt drained. This week was E3 week & though consoles are not big in my life anymore, I still like hearing what’s in the works. However there is one thing I wanted to hear about since Square Enix announced it a bit ago.
I’ll be showing my age with this one, but back in the late 90s, I played the hell out of the original Final Fantasy VII on PS1 and liked it. Before that game, RPGs were never my thing, sad but true. Seven hooked me in a way no other game of the time did & never let go. Fact: it took me a year or two to beat it, (not 100 percent), but it filled me with pride knowing I beat the game.
While visiting my adopted family in the 2000s, they showed me video of a full CGI FF7 movie called Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children to be released, we thought sometime that year, so after being dragged back here, (a topic for another time) it was ordered. Months passed with the release date being pushed back and Square Enix claimed there were issues with the project from tech problems to actor issues. Two POSSIBLE reasons for the delay, but it was delayed so many times I think they wanted to build a lot more hype around the movie.
After the PS4 was out, square showed a teaser trailer and at the end they revealed that a FF7 remake was in the works, making fans of the old game grin. Even I would buy a PS4 to play that one game. Alas, this week no word about it came from the E3 floor, making me think they’re filling that damn hype train again. Oh, the word is DEVS had to be switched, again “maybe”, to me though it sounds like hype building.
Do you think a remake will ever come?
