Beast Thoughts on Final Fantasy VII Remake

Even though Sony didn’t show up, they were there in spirit. This year Square Enix came with some heavy hits and nostalgia to many fans of certain titles. But this beast was there to see any new details on Final Fantasy VII Remake and Square was like, “Hold my Mana!” Not going to knock the original too much, but with the upgrades, we have now, Final Fantasy VII Remake looks to be a better action RPG experience. Take a look. 

Final Fantasy VII Gets an Upgrade!

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE is a reimagining of the iconic original game that re-defined the RPG genre, diving deeper into the world and its characters than ever before. The first game in this project will be set in the eclectic city of Midgar and presents a fully standalone gaming experience that provides a great starting point to the series.

Along with unforgettable characters and a powerful story, FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE features a hybrid battle system that merges real-time action with strategic, command-based combat. 

Everyone gets a new look and new scenes, but what I would like to get into is the combat switch from turn-based to action. This is a good move for today’s RPG’s. My favorite Final Fantasy game is Crisis Core and it had a damn good prequel element that leads to FF VII. Sadly I am not going to hold my breath to see a Crisis Core port from PSP. 

Even though it is said that this title will be episodic, I would not mind either way. New combat features and being able to switch between characters on the fly as well as combos with characters. The next thought process is are they going to throw people a bone that cried about Aerith? I know it is weird to see permadeath in an RPG with Phoenix Down, but it does drive the story. If they pull a twist option that you are capable of saving Aerith that would be a cool move. Might be a lot of grinding involved to do so, but many of you would love the challenge. 

As for me, I thought it drove the anger in the right direction against Sephiroth and his crazy antics. Just like how Zach died at the end of Crisis Core that gave Cloud his own path. With that I am all in, so now we come to the pre-order portion of the post. You will have 3 options.
