Final Fantasy VII Remake to Have Changes

Nomura But don’t worry: our favorite bits will probably still be intact.

Nomura Tetsuya, director of the “Remake” of the highly acclaimed 1997 RPG Final Fantasy VII is clarifying facts about the upcoming project, and it appears it will be more of a reboot than a remake.


“My goal…is to make it apply to the current era, the current generation of players…” Nomura said in a recent interview with wired. “I want to make it so it’s relevant to the modern era, as well as having an element of surprise.”

Some of the more obvious changes, such as voice acting (hopefully from the cast of Advent Children) and graphically superior, possibly interactive cutscenes are among the more expected of the modifications, but things from the combat system and mini games at the Golden Saucer, to the places and characters you come across are still up in the air.


But if you’re worried about things like Materia, Meteor or Cloud’s cross-dressing scene, you won’t have too much to worry about. Nomura, speaking on this point, said “There are certain plot points we don’t want to interfere with or disturb, nor will we want to change elements that fans have very big attachments to.” Hopefully these are words we can trust, but we will be keeping an eye on this one as new developments come out.

What changes are you looking forward to in the Remake? Will we FINALLY be able to save Aeris without a Gameshark? Let us know in the Comments below!
