    Dunno what's with year 1999 but Square did some beautiful game soundtracks: FFVIII and Legend of Mana.
    Hoping a remake for FFVIII, LoM doesn't need a remake but atleast a pc/p4 port would do.

  • Eloy Librada Llobregat

    Well for PC we got all "remastered" already by modders... but the sound. That's what i'm expecting the most. This game has an amazing soundtrack and special FX, they neeed to finally improve that from poor pc ports and PSX workarounds!

    Everyone wants this game remade and im ofpver here hoping for 6 because its the only game to not be remade or remastered (unless you count the crappy mobile/steam version). Also i know 5 hasn’t had anything either but FF6 has a much larger and grand story.

    • Mara Jade

      Honestly, I'm not a fan of remaking the pre-PlayStation games. I don't think their visual style really carries over all that well and MUCH rather play the games in period.

    Thank you square, thank you for not fucking this up like you inevitably will 7. Thank you for not announcing this 5 years before actually releasing it, thank you for not completely changing the gameplay for some stupid fucking reason, thank you for just polishing it for modern hardware.

    I guess the best part about the 7 remake is that it will finally shut up the braindead 7 fanboys. Well, I mean maybe, who am I kidding they're never happy.

    Why it's F#@KING shit should of done 9 it would be alot better

    Squall and Rinoa have a very bad look!

    Mostly Squall that with this new face, hair and with his fitness body looked like Ruby Rose Langenheim, he looks like a woman this is bad.

    Fix Squall and bring his River Phoenix appearance he had in Final Fantasy 8 PS1.

      should not exchange the original for Kingdom Hearts Squall
      only improve face of the original

    • NZO MV
      NZO MV Day ago +1

      I actually agree. They should of just made his face and hair clearer not change it into the Kingdom hearts look.

    One important Question about the Pocket Stadion from the Original Game: Can we get the items or the pocket Stadion itself in this Version or not? 😮

  • Your Daddy Martin

    Zell has the ugliest face tat and Squall's angry face always reminded me of chunky from child's play in this. Doesn't look remastered tbh lol

    I'm surprised they aren't doing proper orchestrated music. Square did FFXII Zodiac Age so I know they know HOW to do a proper remaster. Seems like they just couldn't be bothered. I'd gladly wait another year to get an Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir or FFXII: ZA level remaster.

    si però per un gioco del genere una versione retail da collezione l'avrei gradita, ancor di più avrei gradito un restauro, non remake in stile ff 7 ma in stile medievil o menkey island mi sarebbe garbato parecchio....stesso discorso farei per il 10 fottesega

    tbh I don't get why people are excited about this... is it because they can play it on the switch? The graphics don't even look that much better..

    • Mara Jade

      Eh, I actually think the update works well. Acknowledges the period, but polishes it up for new players to be interested in.

      @Jake Bennett I meant that much better than the PC version*
      Even if there were no PC version with better graphics.. it doesn't look like they revamped it enough for people to get excited about it. I figured it would be about as "hype" as the 20 other versions of the classic games that get released every other year..

    • Jake Bennett

      InJeffable 2 days ago

      A full-on remake (completely new visuals, expanded/reworked dialogue, voice acting, updated combat, etc.) for a game like Final Fantasy VIII would be a massive undertaking. They're probably going to have their hands full with the Final Fantasy VII remake for at least the next few years, and I imagine they're only doing that one because VII has maintained its popularity over the years. I'd say the chances of there ever being a remake for VIII are slim to none.

    I hope they put the chocobo mini game in, because the pc version has it.
    But many knows that FF8 lost the "master version", so Square Enix must search for another solution [begin from scratch?] and that's impressed. Let us look what they make [better] ;)

    PC version better not have goddam midi music!

    joking aside, I don't like it. Can already do high poly model swaps on the PC version and have been able to replace the midi music with the ps1 audio for well over a decade already. Plus I don't even like the ugly jittery xSal upscaling look anyways 🙅
    But. Don't forget: any money is worth an eventual full-3d remake.
