Not sure how I feel about an episodic game getting any kind of DLC. Shouldn't all resources be put into the next part?

I admire the effort they have put into this DLC but kinda feel like it will delay them actually finish making this remake.

Yea I agree. Hopefully they announced releases across the other systems soon. I loved it on PS4 but would also like to have it on PC.

This could be their way to introduce Yuffie in advance of getting her in Part 2. Kind of an interlude type deal to help gamers endure the wait. Square Enix has a lot of manpower, so I don’t think this will delay Part 2 much if at all. The pandemic is probably the only thing that could and most likely will delay it.

Good thing they haven’t announced a release date yet.

I think what people need to understand is that this is not a remake of FFVII, the name is a misnomer. It's a sequel to the FFVII compilation.

Yeah. A sequel in which the events from the original takes place... again.

That theory is stupid at best.

The story is different, this was obvious from the original demo and the idea this trailer had Yuffie in any capacity outside being an optional character. ;-)

It’s a remake. Not a remaster. They are adding to the original, yet Kitase assured people the story wouldn’t derive from the original.
If Yuffie being presented in a DLC is your argument for it to be a sequel to the original, I don’t know what to tell you, if not that I can now understand why you would adhere to such theories.

The Fury Hynad (on 27 February 2021)

It's not even a remake, it's a different game. We've had a remaster, it was released years ago, I want a game that looks as good as this but plays like FF7... you know, a "remake", not a different game but same characters

Hynad The Fury (on 27 February 2021)

A remake doesn’t have to be a carbon copy of the original version at all. In fact, they’re usually not.

Take the many King Kong remakes for movies, or the Resident Evil 2 remake for games, for examples.

And there was no remaster of VII. What you’re talking about is a port. That being said, you should look into Ever Crisis. Seems like that’s what you want.

The Fury Hynad (on 27 February 2021)

Nope. I want FF7 that looks like this but plays like FF7, has the story of FF7. Apparently this is an alien concept to people.

Hynad The Fury (on 27 February 2021)

The battles in Ever Crisis look like the remake, but play more like the original. And the concept you speak of isn’t alien. But it’s also nothing to lose energy on. You took FFVII as is, and liked it , yet can’t approach other projects the same way. Asking for it to be this and that and whatever, like a spoiled-rotten kid who isn’t getting his way. That’s being closed-minded.

Nothing to do with closed minded, have gameplay like this in FF16 or 17, I'm all over it, day 1 purchase. Not when the product advertised is FF7.

The Fury wahwah (on 27 February 2021)

I don't even treat it was a remake, FF7 is one of my favourite games of all time but I haven't bought this remake because it doesn't play like FF7, isn't the story of FF7 and is only the first 4 or 5 hours of a 30 hour game. I may buy this game when they finish it, in 2032. :P

KratosLives The Fury (on 27 February 2021)

I'm sure the remake was a bigger percentage of the whole game than just that. I played the original back in 2019, and outside the midgar region, I remember around 10/15 hrs of gameplay.

Really ? There was some woods region with some strange creatures there, there was that festival fare place that you catch a ride through a fmv sequence, some outdoor region that you explore by boat and vehicle, and some ship fortress. Then again I was playing the game in speed mode outside of midgar and was powering my way through all those random battles.

Then you should've realized your experience was an inaccurate representation of the game...

KratosLives wahwah (on 01 March 2021)

why? too many random same battles. i had to speed through it.

  • 0
wahwah KratosLives (on 01 March 2021)

The frequency of random battles is the same in and out of midgar, you did not speed through them in Midgar but did after that hence you got a wrong perception of how much of the game is made up of Midgar.

KratosLives wahwah (on 02 March 2021)

The game had too many random encounters. When you cut all that out the game isn't as long as people think it is.

wahwah KratosLives (on 02 March 2021)

That's beside the point.

I'll revisit the game's missions / story arch and see

Free upgrade from the PS4 version to PS5 version is nice. Interesting that this Yuffie expansion only seems to work on PS5. A sign that FF7 Remake Part 2 will be for current gen systems only.

Sony just announced that FFVII Remake will be a free PS Plus game for March. Probably should have included that news in the announcement yesterday. What an awesome gesture for players with the PS5 upgrade.
