    I was until I saw what they're doing for a battle system.

    They've decided to butcher the nostalgia and made ANOTHER fucking action RPG.

    I think I'd rather buy something from Gumi. Or wait for 80% discount.

    Don't forget that it will also be split in three episodes as far as I know. The next part will come most likely a few years after the first.

    FF games after 12 got kinda bad. 12 had nice exposition, they told you about where you were going, and why you wanted to be there. People diss the autobattle, but there was still strategy in that you had to set it up yourself. I was kinda meh about 13, they dumbed down the autobattle strategy even more, but it had a decent story, and told it well. 14 was so bad they had to shut it down and restart development after it was already released. I was disappointed in 15 all around. Combat was a mess of button mashing, it was too easy to cheese/over level even without meaning to, and the story had too much dudebro and not enough world building. You're supposed to build up to plot points, not back fill them once you're in the middle of them.

    So, I'm really torn on this. I recognize that the original translation was complete crap, so changes to the story can only improve the experience. I also recognize that the original combat system is dated and could use a refresh, if only in gui. I want it to be good, I really do. But I've been burned so badly by numbered FF titles in the past decade...

    I am extra hype for this. I'm really glad they made it an action RPG. If I wanted to play FFVII exactly like the original, I'd just play the original or one of the ridiculous number of re-releases. I just hope it's more in line with Kingdom Hearts than FFXV. The combat in XV was sluggish and way too easy.

    For me whole things was great.It be weird to see it turn based with that kind of graphical power.

    For me, I kinda wish it was more turn base than action rpg. ARPG like Kingdom Hearts feels like a bad Secret of Mana, to me anyway. You then have to deal with an AI partner and hope they don’t die.

    Maybe a mix of free world movement but a battle system that is turn base. I’ve always like an rpg game where spells like sleep, poison, confuse other status ailments play a role... why even have them in game if they are useless.

    If it's like NieR, count me in.

    I'm not convinced traditional Square people have the ability to do action right though. Every time they've tried, the product has felt one-legged.

    If they just remade it with better graphics, a more open world, more things to do, more characters to recruit, kept the difficulty of the original game, and added some online components (like FFXV had) that would be transformative.

    I aaaaalmost squealed like a little girl, once it has an actual release date, I may. People are too picky nowadays. Everyone complains when things aren't exactly what they thought it should be, and nothing ever is, so they complain/hate everything =(.
