Final Fantasy VII Remake not coming soon

If you were hoping Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming out soon, I’m sad to say you will be disappointed. At the companies financial briefing Square Enix President Yosuke Matsuda revealed that both Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts 3 are currently slated for release in “fiscal year 2018 and beyond”.

It has also been revealed that Square Enix is “urgently recruiting” for Final Fantasy VII’s internal development team. It was originally reported back in 2015 that Square would be outsourcing much of the game’s production to external company CyberConnect2, however it seems that plan has recently changed.

Naoki Hamaguchi, who previously worked on Mobius Final Fantasy, has reportedly taken a new role on the Final Fantasy VII project. He attributes the move to internal development to “improving quality” and maintaining a “stable schedule”. You can read the full translation on Nova Crystallis.

An Announcement

I have some news: as of today, I am leaving the staff here at the Citadel. CloudANDTidus will take over news and hosting duties full-time, and there will be one Admin short on the Forums from now on as well. This site means a lot to me, but it is time for me to move on, mainly for some of the same reasons I posted when I shut down back in February.

CloudANDTidus will keep you all posted on the server/hosting switchover, as well as other changes he has planned. In the meantime, if you'd like to keep in touch, my contact info, social media and gaming accounts, etc. are listed here.

Well, everyone... take care of yourselves!

Quick Little Site Update

In my role as site host, I was doing some server-side maintenance on the Citadel today and noticed that several years' worth of spam had accumulated on the theory submission page for The Yellow Orb.

That page has now been restored to the time when the last legitimate comments were probably made. From what I can tell, all of the comments made after that were spam, and I did not feel like sifting through hundreds of later posts to find any non-spammy ones. Also, to combat future spam (and therefore, future space-hogging backups made by the commenting system) I have decided to close the page to new comments altogether. Comments may open again sometime in the future, though I can't say when.

My maintenance work is ongoing at this time, so if you find anything else that seems off, please let me know immediately. Thank you!

Remake high-res key visual

Just a small update today. I've uploaded a 1924x1080 version of the Final Fantasy VII Remake key visual that Square Enix unveiled at the Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary event in January.

It makes a good wallpaper.

Remake features action-based combat

Last month a couple of pictures of Final Fantasy VII Remake were released during Magic Monaco 2017 that showed off the game's combat system. In the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu director Tetsuya Nomura clarified that the combat would be action based.

“Battles are not command-based, they’re action-based. Regarding cover actions, there are places where they can be done on the map, but they are not required. Because it’s seamless, I showed that there can be actions in response to various scenes."

The switch to a real-time combat system is one of the more controversial changes in the remake. It has yet to be seen how closely it will resemble Nomura's Kingdom Hearts franchise, or the recently released Final Fantasy XV, both of which feature similar styles of fighting. Nomura also noted that the Guard Scorpion battle would feature destructible portions of the map.

FFVII Mobile Port Now on Android

A very quick bit of news: the mobile port of FFVII, which came out last summer for iOS, is now available for Android. The price for it is identical to the App Store's (US$15.99/£11.99 /€15.99), and it appears to be the exact same port, warts and all. Our webmaster did not like the iOS port very much, so caveat emptor.
