I had heard that Square-Enix was planning on releasing either a remake or a remastering of the original Final Fantasy 7 game, but I wasn't sure if that was just a rumor until today, when I saw these videos from the recent 2019 E3 tradeshow. And HOLY SHIT does it look spectacular!! As it turns out they REMADE the game instead of just doing a remaster, which I commend them for. The trailer is fantastic enough, but the second video is a reaction video with footage from the actual conference, and... the battle system is outta-this-world amazing. Much more action-oriented, much more exciting. I can't wait to see the rest of the characters in action– thus far I've only seen Cloud, Barret, Tifa, and Aerith, and every one of them looks and sounds incredible. Not only does this have me so excited that I actually want to pre-order a game for the first time in my life, but I'm also seriously considering shelling out the money for the 1st Edition pack, which comes with an artbook and a Cloud figurine. So... much... YES!!!!!
The third & fourth videos show the remastering (different than a remaking) of original games Final Fantasy 8 and 9. I'm super-duper excited for 8, but 9 looks great as well.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed hoping that they'll remaster Final Fantasy 10 as well... because as much as I adore FF7, I have to admit that 10 is my favorite.
So...MUCH... SO MUCH YESSSS!!!!
