12/06/2015: "Yoshinori Kitase on the Remake, Mobius Final Fantasy Gets a Tie-in"
A bit of a PR fluff went out yesterday in the form of a video interview, produced by Sony, with Yoshinori Kitase. In it, he discusses the original FFVII's impact, as well as what they're hoping to achieve with the Remake's battle system:
I can't say the new game is completely action-based, but it has more of that element and real-time than the previous game. However, what makes Final Fantasy and RPG different from other games is that the players have the ability to choose weapons, capabilities, and magic to be stratgetic-minded, so while the new game has more real-time element, it will also maintain that strategy building element, balancing these two factors perfectly to enhance the gaming experience.He also goes on to praise the graphics capabilities of the PS4, implying that they can maintain a level of visual quality similar to that of Advent Children on the system.
In other news, a brief new trailer for Mobius Final Fantasy, a smartphone game that launched this past June in Japan, revealed an upcoming FFVII crossover, which includes the Masamune as a log-in bonus.
