FFVIIR is delayed.


That's to be expected, I guess.

I'm so very sad, but no use in complaing about it either, just disappointing that Square keeps having this issue lately.

At least I have KH3 Remind coming out next week.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Good thing Anno taught us well in the art of eternal waiting ^_^

To me, "polishing the game" is shorthand for "we have gamebreaking bugs" so I'm okay to wait (especially with the release shifting from a Tuesday to now a Friday—though that's Easter weekend :sweatdrop: ) since it's only a month's wait. Still, it definitely sucks for people who took time off work to play!

I wanted to mention to any Tifa :boxing: :cheers: fans, some friends and I worked on a Tifa Lockhart Zine that's up for Preorder with the proceeds going to charity! Details and links are HERE :w00t:

The fact that it comes out on Good Friday (day off) means I probably beat it by Easter. :lol:

Huh... I'm starting to suspect there was a big game released on Good Friday 33-ish AD, and Jesus was just holed up playing... :uhh:

Probably was the hit video game of the time, "Initial Fantasy"

So for those of us who played Re:Mind did you guys see how
SPOILER: Show
the madlad Nomura is bringing back Final Fantasy Versus 13 with Verum Rex? I'm actually very excited he'll finally get a chance to realize his concept (since XV turned out to be not so good without him)

For yesterday's 23rd anniversary of the original 7 release (in Japan, before the International version was out Fall 1997), we got some goodies ^_^

If you already know original FF7 well, then this shouldn't be anything shocking, but the story feels like it's going in a new direction *seemingly* with just how much Aerith knows about Jenova and Sephiroth? Maybe Hojo was blabbing to her? Or we're getting the ancient fan HCs that Sephy and Aerith knew each other in the Shinra labs as kids?

I'll wait until the game proper's out before worrying, since context is everything. Folks seem to think this trailer was in response to the leaks, but IMO they probably had this planned as a final trailer before the release date changed, since trailers do take awhile to make.

If you don't want appearance surprises spoiled for Miss Cloud, Red 13, Jenova, Cloud/Tifa's teenage promise, or the Shinra executives, please don't watch these.

English trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3alSpW18SnE

Japanese: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDets1_G9gQ Maaya Sakamoto is on point, as expected :3

French: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgD_Q1MF0F0

German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PJLekStrr0

Uematsu and friends discussing the end credits theme, Hollow (incredibly Zack and Cloud heavy so I'm dying :crybaby: ): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZKR9slSECg

Also, there's a Remake world tour happening, so the Remake OST will be out early Summer 2020: https://press.na.square-enix.com/SQUARE ... -THROUGH-M

Holy crap. Now that you say it...true, that's Maaya Sakamoto playing Aeris 8-0

I think this is one of those "shows too much trailers", especially if you haven't played the OG. And I still think
SPOILER: Show
Jenova and Seph showing up before the Niblheim flashback takes away a lot of the impact.
But let's see what they do exactly. I'm not against plot changes.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

I was initially worried about Aerith, but:



I'm almost certain this was supposed to be their "final trailer" before the dates got changed. I suppose everything's wait and see.

About Remake so far, it's very much geared towards OG fans although new fans apparently have no idea what's going on considering how confusing these trailers are :sweatdrop:

I think most of the problem arises from the different (and often contradictory) interpretations of Aerith's abilities throughout the compilation.
I'm really not concerned about how much of Crisis Core, Before Crisis or Advent Children bleeds into the remake, as long as its kept consistent througout all of the remake's titles.
