    It should be a massive game, which will be excellent.

    Er... I don't. :D I've not gotten further than meeting Red XIII or whatever that dog-like thing is called. I've been waiting for this remake for aeons now.

    I'd personally experience the original in all its glory before diving into this. :p (I have about 15 times now. Favorite game of all time )

    I'll do it the other way round - play the new one first and then the old one. That way, I have no expectations about the new one and won't know if it's crap compared to the original. :p

    Good logic there. :p

    I hope it loves up to the name.

    Yes!

    Still not sure about the action battle system but other than that it looks good to me!

    Same here, I think a lot of people will miss the old battle system and random battles. I also feel they would have likely saved a lot of time keeping the old ways.

    I thought this would of ended up being a PS5 release, but the trailer states PS4 so this might be coming sooner than I thought it would.

    Wait for the PS5 to be officially announced at E3, then the SE event will show FFVIIR being released as a launch title on the PS5, possibly alongside the PS4 too.

    Just my theory.

    The battle system completely changes the game for me to the point it would feel like a completely different game. I see no point in changing one of the most revered games so dramatically so I don't hold much interest.

    Whilst all of us who played the original would much prefer the original battle system I guess they don't think it will appear to today's younger generation of gamers. I think they're probably correct to an extent. It is a real shame though.

    Would be nice if they offered both the classic battle system and the new one, but obviously that would be massive work if they already have most scenes in place that rely on the current battle system they got going on now.

    I am a big believer in if it ain't broke don't fix it and it looks like they have gone way overboard in that. I will just stick to the original.

    You're right though, it'll be for the newer generation of attention deprived kids. Shame.

    Battle system still looks like the one from FF Crisis Core. Which isnt bad.

    Might just be me being a grumpy old man but I prefered the old style RPG battle system. I haven't enjoyed any FF game since they changed it to more action oriented combat.

    That's a monumental NOPE from me. Though not sure what i was expecting to be honest.
    What a shame.

    Indeed, XIII and XV, basically.

    Last decent proper Final Fantasy was XII, IMO.

    It isn't a remaster, it's a remake - I even think the directors have advised to expect it more of a reimagining than a straight up remaster.

    It's my favourite game of all time and I'm so glad that it was made back in 1997, but this has me really rather hyped. I want it to be a bit different to how it was.

    Can't wait.

    As soon as they mentioned episodic release that turned me off straight away.
