Square Enix - Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth

Not sure if this means 100% we will play just with Clive or if it just implies on what the trailer showed:





I am most excited about the summons, they are like real characters. It seems Clive is Ifrit.

Also, I can't believe we will have such heath bars for the first time, it reminds me of fighting games but I think its cool.

As beautiful as the trailer looks am I the only FF fan who would like them to return to a turn based combat system or at least some variation of it. I'd even settle for the gambit system form XII. Having said all that when hell finally freezes over and I manage to get a PS5 I will absolutely play XVI.

I guess Bravely Default is essentially this, but I wish Square-Enix would make a side-series of Final Fantasies that keeps the classic turn-based/ATB battle systems alive. I acknowledge that as their tentpole franchise, mainline installments need to be really broadly appealing and real-time combat is where that is currently, but the franchise completely abandoning its roots is disappointing.
 
I feel like what's most disappointing is how FFXVI just looks like... other battle systems. Devil May Cry in particular, and the Eikon battles look like some sort of Tekken/Pokemon hybrid.

With that said, turn-based JRPGs are in a better state than ever and it's not like there's any shortage of incredible ones. Persona 5 Royal, Yakuza Like A Dragon, Dragon Quest XI, The Trails-series...
 
They started to share more info on the characters



I was just thinking, by the time this gets released, it will be in development for 7 years. And then people bitch about FF15, no wonder it had such development mess where they had to change it from a trilogy connected to FF13 to a single game in 3 and a half years. Its good Square learned a lesson not to rush things.

Its actually funny game is practically completed and yet we have to wait a year because of polishing. Then again, Yoshida is perfectionist, Endwalker was delayed because he wanted it to be perfect.

I've said this before and totally agree. Make a side series that's more humble on budget and development time. Its obvious at this stage the franchise is moving into action and I don't think it'll ever come back but I'd love to bring FF back to its roots in a smaller, classic spin off series.

FFVII REMAKE will hold down that fort for the next 10 years until it’s completed.
