Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake will possess some new elements and features that may, in fact, make it a ‘new’ game.
The game’s director, Tetsuya Nomura, said the remake will look and feel very different from the original. Since they’re already putting so much effort into revamping every little aspects, the question is then why make the exact same game?
It’s hard to expect gamers to extract that same thrill of playing FFVII on the PlayStation, but the title’s iconic stature in the RPG world demands that Square-Enix revive it. If Nomura and his team can bring back FFVII in a way where it stays true to the plot but provides the eye candies of new game engines, there’s a good chance the remake will garner old and new fans alike.
We didn’t get too much details about the FFVII remake from Square-Enix at E3, but it seems Nomura has assembled some veterans including the original game’s producer and scenario writer.
