Final Fantasy VII Remake's Success Could Bring Back Companion Games
Anyone with a PS4 right now is very excited for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII remake, which fans have been asking for since an animation demo for the PS3 was first released. Now that we are getting it, all fans have to do is patient and hope that the game lives up to the original PS One classic. The original game was so loved that it had a ton of companion games that came out in the mid-2000’s, some of which people liked.
When asked about the title’s companion games, director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that he would like to see some of them eventually get re-released but told fans that they need to see how the remake does first. Square Enix is hoping that the game does gangbusters for the company and knowing how nostalgic most fans are these days, the fact that Square Enix isn’t sure if it will sell is a bit confusing.
Most of the companion games are just okay but one title that fans really want to see re-released is Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. This PSP exclusive prequel gave fans a heart-wrenching story and a fairly fun combat system. How this hasn’t been re-released yet is, frankly, a mystery.
Nomura is the man behind Kingdom Hearts, so it wasn’t too surprising to see a real-time combat system added to the game. It will be interesting to see how he changes the game from what we know, with some of us feeling a bit worried that they’ll make Cloud more of a badass and less of a goofball, which he kind of was in the original.
I mean, he dressed up as a girl to save Tifa. We need more silly moments like that.
No release date for the Final Fantasy VII remake has been revealed.
