Final Fantasy VII Remake: “It’s Happening,” Insider Says

There has been a lot of talk, in the past few years, about a possible remake of the massively popular JRPG Final Fantasy VII, but Square Enix always remained semi-silent on the issue, only dropping hints here and there. A few days ago Producer Yoshinori Kitase himself said that he’d love to do it, but “it would take a lot” for it to happen.

Recently industry insider Verendus, that is known to have very strong connections within the Japanese gaming industry, posted on NeoGAF mentioning that the project is happening:

It’s happening. He’s obviously not going to give any indication as such though so it hardly matters until they’re ready to announce something. His comments make sense. It’s a huge project that will take a lot of effort, and demand a lot from him personally, in order to ensure the end result is something satisfactory.

Of course, as usual with this kind of leaks from insiders, we should take what is said with a sizable pinch of salt, but Verendus has a good track record with the information he receives from his sources, so Final Fantasy VII aficionados may not yet be able to uncork the champagne, but at least they can start filling the bucket with ice.

  • Whoa…Verendus eh…he’s been spot on, but this is big…

    • Matt Berial

      Get hyped!! >;)

    • Negi Springfield

      We can only hope…

      The hype that PS4`s been getting , Shenmue 3 , Legend of Dragoon 2 , Now Final Fantasy VII Remake ? Please… just please….

      Hehe. I did that as well when I read this. They’d have to radically change many parts of the game IMO because of the politically correct world we seem to live in now. And even if they did leave in parts like the honeybee manor, dating Barrett, or the biggest stickler of all… the glorifying of terrorism will definitely rub a lot of people the wrong way. I was in lower manhattan that morning in 2001 and saw it all, and while I can deal with a FF7 remake keeping true to the original, I’d probably be pi$$ed had I never played the game or loved the original.
      And if any of you had seen Advent Children, it’s clear that much of the humor that made the original great will be long gone.

  • Nicholas Perry

    Hm. If they would, great care needs be taken. Especially with the music, they need to offer the option for the original soundtrack and an arranged soundtrack recorded entirely as much live as possible. (In other words, they need to give it the budget for the music that a game like Lords of Shadow 2 has. And not like FFXHD, where they half assed the music budget for just modern sequenced versions instead of a lot live, cut most of the original music. Look at Rikku’s Theme in FFXHD compared to the original, still sequenced, and mixing isn’t great. Again, budgetary issues. Where as other songs have live instruments and much better mixing over the originals.)

    I would make voice acting optional too, lots of people always had their own idea of the voices. Better than rather forcing something on them.

    Ideally I think a “remake mode” and a “original mode” would be a good idea too.

    Remake mode plays the dialogue out as cutscenes and uses a more free roaming camera.

    Classic mode uses the same engine and rendering. But the camera angle is fixed to the same angles as the original game. And the game uses text bubbles like the original game with no voice acting. There could also be an option where if you enable voice acting in Classic Mode, when you enable it, it could give you a 2ndary option to enable the cutscenes/dialogue scenes to be that of the Remake mode. IE, the opening train scene in remake mode without VA would play out the same as the original. With VA enabled and remake cutscenes enabled, instead of fixing the camera to the left of the train station like originally, it would zoom in to the action dynamically, etc.

    They could fit all that easily on blu-ray, and with the RAM of the PS4/XBone and PC, it shouldn’t be an issue.

  • tubers

    Sure.. And to be released past a decade from now.

  • Dakan45

    I don’t know if I should be very excited or very worried…

    • Erebus671

      I’m on the fence too. On one hand, I’m extremely excited for a remake of my all time favorite game (also the gateway game into my favorite series of games), but on the other hand, I fear they will screw it up. I’m hoping they don’t…

  • Jared Carter

    If they’re really going to remake this, I want a FULL remake and not an HD upscale. The budget doesn’t matter as you’ll get it all back and then some. Also, they better give Final Fantasy 9 the same treatment, give us a proper new Tactics game on consoles, and a second Chrono sequel.

    • Bryce Ray Parker

      3rd third Chrono sequal… don’t forget Chrono Cross.

      • Guilherme Cunha

        Second Chrono sequel:
        1st game – Chrono Trigger
        2nd game (1st sequel) – Chrono Cross
        3rd game (2nd sequel) – ???

        • Tyler Cook

          There was actually a game inbetween Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. A lot of Chrono Cross harkens back to it, which is why Chrono Cross is so weird.

          • Jack Vigil

            Radical Dreamers was what Chrono Cross originally was. It is not an in between as it is considered to have never happened.

        • Jared Timothy Mullen

          Chrono Chaos. Chrono Ultima. Chrono X. Chrono Infinite. Chrono Zero. Chrono War or Chrono Wars. just to name a few (cool sounding names)

          • shinitaru

            Ooh, good title, or Chono Crisis

    • James Cluckey

      It won’t be a full remake.

      • Jared Carter

        Yes it will. Otherwise the director wouldn’t make it seem like such a big undertaking as HD upscaling would be simple.

        • James Winegar

          HD up-scaling for ff7 would probably require an entire engine overhaul.

          • shinitaru

            HD upscaling would be impossible. They would have to completely remake the game.

          • Erebus671

            Not probably, it will definitely require an engine overhaul, and then some.

    • A Y

      Pulled the thoughts straight from my brain, although I would include ffviii as well. Ffviii viii I’d and tactics. It would just be epic if they redid chronological trigger for ps4…I would love to see the dials and triples..not to mention the fated dual with magus!

      • Jared Carter

        I’d like to see FF8 done as well. I’d love for Tactics to be in the graphics of like 13 but still top down and strategic. Add environmental obstacles for cover and destruction, and dynamic battlefields that change with weather, and the after math of spells and conflicts. I’d love to see a remake of Chrono Trigger and Cross. But I don’t want Trigger to lose its charm which was do in part to the graphics. It was a serious game with a serious story but many times it didn’t look it. lol

        • ShadowMike4d4

          I want to see all 9 of the original FF games to be remade, new graphics AND voice acting…but I didn’t consider FF tactics having the spells actually effect the environment D:

          Still, there was a SORT OF remake with new content….

          Who else wants to see a remake of Tactics with all the special classes made into jobs your generic characters can achieve? And if you master Holy Knight, Divine Knight, and Dark Knight, you unlock Holy Swordsmen or whatever it was called in War of The Lions?

          • Jared Carter

            But that would make those special characters useless. That would be a long and costly task to remake the original 9. Maybe do 1-5 like they did for FF 3 on the DS. But 6-9 like FF15.
            Yeah, I’m talking about when you call down meteor in tactics, the aftermath would be a giant crater where the spell hit. 🙂

          • ShadowMike4d4

            Well at the very least I would want the main character to be able to unlock those special classes! Just having Dark Knight opened up is kind of a tease don’t you think?

            And…as I recall Meteor hits the entire battlefield so…maybe it changes the battlefield to a crater? XP

        • Jamin Len Lester

          Just do Chrono Trigger in the art style of something like Blue Dragon or Dragon Warrior 8, and it would work, or, in other words, let Akira Toriyama do his thing, you know he wants to . . . XD

    • Jon

      I can guarantee you that it wouldn’t be a mere HD upscale. That’s pretty much what the re-release of FFX/X-2 is. If it was just an upscale project, they’d have come out with it maybe 7 years ago to coincide with the release of the spin-off games like Crisis Core.

  • Redinferno124

    I’m calling BS, if this was true, it would mean the world is not such a dark place. LOL

  • Gariya

    Please be on home console. Please.

    Let the mustard rice do their port-begging petition like a bunch of beggaring peasants.

  • Nuh_uh_to_your_Uh_huh

    Why a remake?….I am not opposed to the idea, but they may as well just continue the story of FFVII: Advent Children imo. Maybe have Denzel as the protagonist, 10-15 years later, leading a organization of rebels to fight a new corporation similar to Shinra?

    I personally do not want Square-Anus to fiddle around with Final Fantasy VII. If in any way possible, they managed to mess FFVII up, it would be game over for them….

    • Erebus671

      They did mess it up though, sure Crisis Core told the back story, but it didn’t fit in very well with how the back story was told in the original FF7. Advent Children was basically the same story condensed into a two hour movie format. The ONLY correlation Dirge of Cerberus had to FF7 was Vincent. They did not continue the story with Advent Children, they merely repeated it in a shorter time frame.

      By the way, when I say the messed it up, I was only referring to DoC and CC. AC was good, just redundant.

  • Galen Nycroft

    I believe it is happening. The new president of SE has no shame from what I read. He is the mom that will make her daughter work as a stripper to support the family.

    • Nihelus Aurenis

      Only in Japan would remaking a beloved game like FF7 be “shameful”. Their new president knows what people want, and he’s going to give it to us. Considering how awful SE has been the last 7-10 years he can’t do any worse than they’re already doing.

  • Redinferno124

    I don’t think the game being rumored to being remade is the news, the insider is.

  • LOL

    Thats it…Half-Life 3 confirmed

    • Redinferno124

      Honestly, this game has a much higher chance of being remade than Half Life 3 does being made. About a .1% higher chance lol.

      • Dfooster

        Demand < profit

      • Erebus671

        I like how “much higher” is only one tenth of one percent. lol

  • Redinferno124

    In all honestly, if this were to be remade, I want it be way after FF15 and KH3.

  • The_Last_Ride

    So yeah, this means it won’t never ever be released

  • Arcana Wiz

    Weeell, people claim that FFVII is being remaked since the tech demo, so i’ll wait and see.

  • Dollow Rlance

    I will believe it when I see it, and even then I will not believe until I take it home, I put it into hopefully my PS4 and I see the game boot up in front of my eyes. I have been tease so much to being jaded. Prove it SQUARE ENIX!!!!

  • Steven Solidarios

    Sony exclusive please. Thats all I ask. Spend the money to help get it done SONY!!! ARE YOU LISTENING?!!!

    • Nihelus Aurenis

      Nobody likes a fanboy, even if they’re chearing on the “winning” system. Don’t be “that guy”.

      • Steven Solidarios

        I know. But I played it on Nintendo, then Playstation. It deserves to be the best game it can be. It might as well be on the system from the company that realistically put Final Fantasy on the map for the US market. Sometimes when games go multi platform they suffer. I just want the game to look as good as the PS3 FF tech demo. Not much to ask right?

        • Michael

          The game should be PS4 exclusive, not for the fanboyism, but to stop the game suffering. I’d hate to see the developers cut corners just to keep system parity. Don’t even put it on PS3. Put it on PS4 and make it look better than the PS4 tech demo. Closer to The Dark Sorcerer PS4 Tech Demo.

          Oh and make it compatible with Sony’s upcoming VR Headset.

          I can dream.

          • Matt Mussett

            You mean it should be a PC exclusive if they want it to be the best it can be.

          • Erebus671

            PC master race reporting in, I see. lol

      • AndrewLB

        Agreed. This remake would take a ton of money and time to make sure they get it right, because the love of the original is at a level few games have ever attained, and due to this I feel SquareEnix (is that still their name?) would multi-platform it in order to reach as many fans of the original as well as the young kids who are all wondering “wtf is Final Fantasy VII?”.

        Plus a lot of people forget that FFVII was actually a multi-platform game, with the PC release coming 7 months after the PlayStation’s in North America.

        Btw… if you young people who haven’t played it due to the very dated graphics, there is a mod-pack available for the PC version made by fans of the game which replace pretty much every texture, all new character models, and greatly improves the background artwork. Oh, and all the music has been completely remastered and is far better than the original IMO. (you can still choose the original if you want).

        And how to do the mod:

      • I think sony published FF7 didn’t they? Might not be exclusive but ps4 would likely be the main platform, and ps is where the fanbase likely resides. Won’t be any parity nonsense like ff13…

        • Erebus671

          SquareEnix (SquareSoft at the time) Published FF7, not Sony. Sony develops hardware (consoles, PCs, TVs, DVD players, Bluray players, etc.) The only software they develop is the Playstation Operating System, the OEM software found on VIAO (and other Sony manufacturer) computers, as well as the firmware for their DVD/Bluray players, TV’s, phones, and other hardware developed by SCE or SCEA.

          • They also have there own World Wide studios…and Sony’s logo is on the FInal Fantasy case in U.S, and Europe. They partnered with SE on the publishing or something, too lazy to dig around, but I wouldn’t have mentioned it otherwise. Your history lesson is also unnecessary, Im all up to date on just about everything SOny, one of my favorite companies.

          • Erebus671

            They may have been involved with the U.S. and European release, but SE was still the sole publisher. AS for Sony’s logo, I’ll have to dig deeper to uncover that, but I’m fairly certain that Sony had little to no part in the publishing. I may be wrong though, and should you find the evidence before I do, I will accept the correction on my part.

            I wouldn’t really call that a history lesson though, the only history I actually mentioned was the fact that SE used to be SqareSoft.

  • Kamille

    Nomura’s too busy making FFXV and Kingdom Hearts 3 and considering in the state that Square is right now either him or Kitase (who was the original director but now only a producer) are the only ones that could pull it off. Toriyama would only ruin it just like he did with FF13 Saga and FFX-2… Tabata, well, he made the horrible Crisis Core with the ultra emo Cloud and over the top battles that looked like DBZ and ruined Parasite Eve with 3rd Birthday.

    • Daniel Ortiz Nieto

      What if it’s Hiroyuki Ito directing the project?

  • Jessenia Lopez

    Take my Money 🙂

  • alok

    Oh my god hope this is true. Imagine Final Fantasy VII with Advent children gameplay graphics on PS4

  • PrinceHeir

    will wait and see before getting hype.

    plus it’s hard to see someone getting some juicy info on a Japanese company(unless they have close ties within the company)

    • Lou Riboh

      I have friends within Shinra who tell me this is happening.
      I just hope they don’t modernise the soundtrack or remix it. That would suck!

      • Erebus671

        I wouldn’t mind remastering the soundtrack (or modernizing as you called it), after all it sounds good when The Black Mages (search them on YouTube) play the songs, but I would hate a remix though.

  • Letthewookiewin

    I will empty my bank account for this game.

  • DEO エリヤデボンオットリ

    Really hope something happen’s soon from hearing this news, but couldn’t possibly hold my breath to that and boy was that tech demo tempting. Will be awaiting any progress notes on Final Fantasy 15 however, been patiently awaiting for that title in particular.

      Best story in the history of Final Fantasy!

  • Slaughterhouse1

    Please be true! I go on gaming websites everyday hoping for news like this. PLEASE!!! I will buy a ps4 just for this!

  • Astrosquall .

    I bet though it will have none of the humour or charm. It’ll be shit like Advent Children- it’ll look pretty, but will also be boring and serious, focusing on the grit. The characters will have no resemblance to anime, because that’s too japanese, and realism makes everything more awesome. it will sacrifice the simple turn-based system for something that will seem cooler and more violent. all to suit modern gamers in the west. you heard it here first

  • Daniel Ortiz Nieto

    If this is real, I hope they keep Cloud as the awesome guy he was in the original game, not the emo crybaby he was made since KH and Advent Children.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      I don’t agree. I think both versions are fine.

    • Stranger On The Road

      I don’t know the source of those 2 ‘Clouds’ but if one is from the game while the other is from the movies; then the events at the the later part of the game are to blame for the change.

      You have played the game, right? then you know that on the left image he believed that he is someone he wasn’t; he was living someone else’s life. Although, the sword used in the movies was a different sword and he wore different cloth. Oh well….

  • chaosfan

    i hope it’s true. people kept on doubting this but still believe they will remake it.

  • Shady Shita

    I always knew it was going to happen 🙂

  • Pedro Carreira

    So it would come out in the earliest by 2018/2020.

  • Exodia Tuskade

    This has been a subject of extreme interest to me and a lot of my friends for years now.The way we would like to see it is with 2 versions, 1 is the original game untouched except for updated graphics and coding, the other is with a fully upgraded and expanded game with as more additional game play material as the developers saw fit.

    • YRD

      you can get the original at the ps store right now.

    • Stranger On The Road

      The original game with just improved graphics has been released a while back; on the PC. You can find it on Steam ( )

  • YRD

    give us the choice to be sephiroth and i’ll buy

    Make it too similar and most people will be bored, make it too different and most people will hate it, no matter how they approach making a remake of it, this is one battle SE cant win,

  • EmikoNiwa

    interrupt with my highly opinionated opinion: Our chains have been
    yanked for years about this. The last decent gameplay/storyline
    SqareSoft/Enix/What’s-it-now came up with was before 1998 (Sorry guys,
    save for FFT, FF8 and up sucked!) And doesn’t Square think it’s sad that
    fans go nuts over a game from the mid-late 90’s getting more loyal
    yodeling than anything else they’ve come out with? If they did remake
    FF7 I would buy a new PlayStation (What number are we on?). That game
    was life in my teens, and I see no problem with making it life in my
    thirties. Some fangirlness never dies!

  • stealth20k

    It isn’t happening. These “Insiders” demand attention. We should not give it to them.

  • James Deter Jr.

    dual shockers? should rename your site bull shitters

  • Nate Brown

    i would really like this. But what i really want is a new Legend of Dragoon game or a HD Remake

    • A Y

      Love this idea

  • Matt Flannery


  • Dollow Rlance

    It will need good marketing.

  • Stranger On The Road

    My opinion regarding the remake: I loved the characters of the FF7, the story was good with a very emotional bit at the middle of the story and the world was interesting. But do I want to see a remake of it? errr… not really.

    Instead I’d rather that the story is re-written, the world changed a bit, and the characters come back to this game. So basically, instead of a remake, make a new modern game that is heavily based on the old game.

  • Los Illuminados

    have read/listen this kind of “leaks”, articles with reliable sources, etc. etc. for years and it never happens. first off for me and other fans of the FF series, the FF series is not relevant any more. FF10 was the last good FF game they made. ever since that dumb merger between Square and Enix back in April 2003 . all SquareSoft titles went to bad. while Enix titles are good. looks like poor SquareSoft got messed up in that merger. all the important people are gone from Square Enix. Creator FF Hironobu Sakaguchi left. video game composer of FF Nobuo Uematsu left after the merger cause he knew the merger change the company into a messed up company and other reasons. all FF titles that come out now are trash games with the FF name on the box. SquareEnix is another company i want it to go bankrupt . unlike Capcom which will bankrupt out in a few years. SquareEnix will take a while longer. they need to gobankrupt and sell off their IPs to other companies. so other companies can give it a shot on these franchise. because at this point to me and other fans they are all dead IPs. i would love a FF 7 Remake, but the question you should ask yourself is. do you really want a FF7 remake with this generation of people that is in SquareEnix now? for me the answer is NO.

    favorite FF games:

    • A Y

      they are doing it and is going to be absolutely incredible the director already stated it is going to be his greatest work/masterpiece and I’m just hoping that they remake chrono trigger as well for ps4 I can’t wait to see duals and triples as well as Magus

  • DecDec

    “It’s happening…” -it’s been like forever.

  • Andrew Veloza

    There is no point in making this if it will not be a full
    remake. If they go ahead with this then it will most likely be a full remake.
    That being said if they haven’t already been working on this in secret, we will
    mostly likely get it in 5 years (Worst case scenario).

    It is not like they can make hi-res assets and throw them
    into the old game. The game engine would have to change entirely, the
    programming for the game would need a complete overhaul and of course all the
    content needs to be modeled, textured, rigged, animated and tested. The only
    thing that will save them some time is that the games story/script is already
    done for them. That is literally the only thing that can be re-used from the
    old game.

    A LOT of work will need to go into this project which why
    Square-Enix hasn’t pulled the trigger on it yet. There biggest success might
    prove to be there biggest failure if it isn’t executed right and if not as many
    people buy it as before. They want to make sure it will be profitable for them.
    I personally think it will, and if this insider info is correct it looks like
    Square-Enix finally agrees with us.

  • Katisnotinthegame

    So the PlayStation 7?

  • Isam

    What an Amazing Game!! I cant believe how successful ff7 was Unbelivable!! From the soundtrack to the storyline beats even the latest games on Ps3 and xbox 360. I would love for the remake and would spend over 100quid to get my hands on it! 🙂

  • Soldier

    They should make it online capable so your friends can play as the other characters. Someone can play as Cloud, Vincent, Barrett in battle. I guess I’m asking for a 3 player multiplayer if they could do that. If someone leaves the server it can be replaced by a bot. I think that would be a nice spin to it.

  • Justinius Phoenix

    I think its probable and doable within a quick time frame. I’m sure there are several (hundred) thousand people out there with models and lay out and all that is needed already made (considering we have all been bitching for this since the PS2 came out) so the project might not take half as long as they are expecting, i just hope they don’t mess with the turn based battle system, this new style is for the birds…..

    • Justinius Phoenix

      They could really add layers to the game if the add in Advent Childrens story as like a bonus dungeon kinda thing to the end of the game, this new thing would really draw a extra crowd i think

  • Arwen Smith

    It’s very possible, a PS Rep. I spoke with just last week informed me that there has been a LOT of chatter about a remake for the ps4 console. I don’t know just how reliable this was and I think how strong the chance of that happening is somewhat depending on how well the ffx HD does in sales and reviews. But I, for one, am holding out for hope.

  • Cat Sapphire

    I’m afraid to hope…

  • kakashi100

    hmmm we can only hope at this point

  • zzipperzz

    My guess is they’ve been wanting to do this for a while and FF Versus was supposed to get finished first. Because that ballooned into an entirely new FF XV, polishing that off will give them a chance to begin FFVII work with all the things they’ve learned up until this point.

    EVERYONE KNOWS that they were eventually going to do it. People forgot they’ve been busy developing Versus/XV for since FF XIII’s development, so that is probably the reason it was totally out of the question last generation.

    Yeah fingers crossed, it would be nice to have that universe presented to us in a different way

  • Matt Mulhern

    I just wanna throw this out there, but would it be so crazy to have a semi decent level based on FFVII in Kingdom Hearts III.

  • Enderfect

    I Would love to see a remake of FF7 infact hear this sony me and 3 others would go out of our way to buy a PS4 Just for that game – I think it’d be also cool that they could with the size of disks and games on These gen consoles to extend the game Either DLC or increased Content like After the end of FF7 you could Play A Game Version of the Events of Advent Children or More to do in the golden Saucer etc. Possibility’s are endless so sony square get on it!

  • Tevin Perry

    Don’t be so excited and haste to ask for more title remakes just be glad we might get ff7 back we have wanted this for a long time

  • Kyng Love

    didn’t square say if they remade final fantasy 7 that would be the end of the final fantasy franchise and wasn’t that last year when then they said that

    • Amaya

      I’m pretty sure they just said they wanted to make a game that would ultimately top FF VII first before releasing a remake so that the remake would not be the best thing they’ve ever done–something newer would still top it. (Although I’m sure a lot of people would see the remake as the best thing ever anyway).

  • Playstation1976

    It will be out sometime during the ps4 cycle.

  • Stephen Rodriguez

    with how fans seem to not like the last 4-5 final fantasies I say it makes sense that they would give the fans what they want. Still, sounds too good to be true

  • Deathsight

    I think they should make the main characters look exactly the same physically but in HD.

  • Deathsight

    I think they should make the main characters look exactly the same physically from the first game but in HD

  • Deathsight

    If they are going to make a remake they should make the characters look exactly the same physically as they did in the original, especially Tifa.

  • Deathsight

    For Tifa they should make her proportions be exactly the same. They should make her hair be exactly as long all the way to her knee and just as luscious. They should make it more spread from the sides of her head giving it a more fuller look, with the flip at the top extending of her face like the first game and not plastered to the sides of her head like in recent appearances, making it look flat and thin. They need to make it just as wide to across her back, so it is as wide as her frame. They should also make her breasts exactly as big at size J and the same shape and give her the same proportions she had before with same size waist. Also
    they need to make her legs just as long and lean as in the first game with the same width and thigh and shin proportions, and give her that high waist look like in the first game to help make her legs look longer. Also, they need to make her skirt look like it is made out of leather like in the first game. They also need to make her eyes bigger like in the first game and make them look more like in the anime style like what they did with the Kingdom Hearts characters Essentially make her look like these screenshots from the game below.

  • Deathsight

    Whoops forgot to mention to also give her the same musculature as before and make her abs look like how they did in the first game.

  • Deathsight

    Like these.

    • shinitaru

      too busty

  • Deathsight

    What do you mean shinitaru? They were the perfect size, and these days there are a lot more female fighting characters that have as big or even bigger breasts. Plus a recent review of gamers said that 90% of all gamers want her back with these proportions exactly the same. That’s the way she was in the first game and that is the way she is supposed to be.

  • Deathsight

    You’re just crazy man! She is an excellent fighter and she is super hot that way. We love her that way!

    • shinitaru

      yeah, but she wasn’t that big in the game or in any of the media. It’s just fan service and it looks dumb

      This is how she looked, not the freakish porn balloons like in your pics

      • Deathsight

        Uh no that is not how she looked in the first game. Yours is a pic from Dissidia 012. They are not freakish porn pics, those are actual screenshots from the actual original game so no its not fan service and two it does not look dumb. Three majority of gamers knows she looked like that and want her to look like that again. Do your research before you criticize. This pic u posted looks dumb and is not the real Tifa Lockhart.

        • shinitaru

          There is no real Tifa Lockhart. Here’s are pics from the original manual and a screen cap.

  • Deathsight

    You’re just crazy man! She is an excellent fighter and she is super hot that way. We love her that way!

  • Deathsight

    This is how we want her to look exactly like this. I HOPE YOU ARE LISTENING MR. YOSHINORI KITASE AND MR. TETSUYA NOMARU. PLEASE MAKE JUST LIKE THAT AGAIN AND MANY FANS AND GAMERS WILL BE HAPPY WE WANT TO SEE HER LIKE THIS AGAIN!!! We have been trying in fan art for years so make her like this!

  • Deathsight

    Anyone whose ever played the game knows that she looked like that and was that big and want her to be that big again. Imagine a girl that looks like that but fights awesomely combined with her personality. It made her a win, win, win. Without that body most gamers agree that it’s like she is not complete, and want their hot fighter girl back.

  • Deathsight

    shinitaru you are an absolute idiot. Of course there is a real Tifa Lockhart and that is the one from the original game. Those you used aren’t what we are talking about. We are talking about the screenshots from the cutscenes in the original game. That represents what she is supposed to look like. That to us is the real Tifa Lockhart, how she is supposed to look. That’s how the majority of gamers want to see her exactly like that again and only that with every detail exactly the same but in HD updated graphics.

    I think, if Square do this – complete full remake of FFVII for PS4 – it will be triumphal succsess, probably greatest success since FFVII original.
    Btw. I know it does not sound too much credibly, but I already heard about this from one official videogame seller from Prague where I live, its probably two years ago, he said Square will do remake when Playstation 4 will be release, because of lack technological aspects and capabillities of PS3. I did not believe it until now 🙂

  • Everett Bentley

    I would rather have an updated version of Final Fantasy 8, 9, and Tactics (original) than this. Final Fantasy 7 was a great game for its time but let’s stop worshiping it like it’s the be all of gaming. Hell there were quite a few before FF7 that I would love to see remade.

  • Katrina Magee

    I’ve heard so much about a remake and keep getting my hopes up I’m sorry but till I see an actual trailer instead of words I’ll believe it my hopes kept up for another UNCHARTED game and it didn’t disappoint me but FFVII is a childhood game to me and lives on strongly but till I see an actual trailer for ps4 then I will jump up and down like a crazy fan psone game was just so magical to me and same with the movies will stay strong with that serise 😀

  • CloudStrife

    Yoshinori Kitase did say he would love to do it, But he also said, on every other game review website, that he will only Fully Remake FF7 when they make a FF game that is rated better than FF7, and judging by the FF fans, 7 was and still is the best, which means its NOT HAPPENING, me personally, I think 13 was the best, but 13 was the first one I ever played so thats why, But I did play and complete 7 and loved it, I would like to see a Remake of it, but I doubt it will happen for at least another 2-3 years, Unless FF XV becomes a huge success, which judging by the trailers and gameplay, It wont be since its a hack n slash and not a turn based JRPG like all the others (not including FF13 Lightning Returns) so it will probably ruin the FF series………

  • Jason Brownlie

    i would pay 10x normal price to play a remake of ff7 aslong as it was a full remake and the story wasnt touched and nothing missing

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Even more of a reason to buy a PS4.

  • Jared Timothy Mullen

    sony event that is going on this weekend. SE announced ff7 is being upscaled and coming to ps4,

  • Steve Brown

    Annnd Verendus was right. What a time to be alive

  • Nicholas Allen Cotner
