There Will Be No New Surprise Characters in Final Fantasy VII
Good. Don't take creative liberties with my childhood memories.

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII, has been opening up with details on the project. In case you've found yourself living under a rock during the entire past week, the remake was announced at E3.

Nomura sat down with Famitsu magazine to answer some of the more burning questions. Here are some highlights:

Regarding the teaser trailer

Nomura: "We’re using part of that video in the game. We’re going to raise the quality even more."

Regarding the choice of hardware

"You’ll be able to play it first on PlayStation 4, that’s for certain. We’re not thinking beyond that yet, so after that is undecided. Since we’re bringing out PlayStation 4 title after PlayStation 4 title, it’d be great if we can give the hardware and industry a boost."

It’s not just an HD-ification, right?

"Final Fantasy VII is special, and we can’t ‘exceed’ the game by simply making the graphics nicer. That’s not a thing to be excited about."

"Precisely because it’s a full remake, I want to challenge what’s fun and what’s possible now."

Will the scenario change or new characters appear?

"There won’t be new characters. As for the visual taste, we’re doing them to match today’s visuals and appear closer to reality."

Regarding the game system

"I can’t share details, but we’re changing it to a more realistic system."

Please, please, please let this be the remake of my dreams.
