    This seems interesting, too bad it's only in Japan.

    Square Enix always has events, what makes this any 'different'?
    XI Vita might be up next, doubt it will.

    Someone says it in almost every FF related thread. I just wanted to be "THE ONE".

    Any remake of FFVII would cause more crying than it would acclaim. People consider it such a flawless classic that almost any change to it would be a mortal sin. If you make cutscenes they'll say they "ruined the characters". Change the gameplay and they've "ruined a perfect formula". Change the music and they "shamed an amazing score". Redo the graphics and they've "taken away the classic feel of the original".

    Not to mention everyone else would cry more about Squenix "rehashing" and "milking" instead of releasing a new Final Fantasy which they could complain about for the same reasons.

    Even though I enjoy the DS remake FF IV, it doesn't have the "charm" that was in the original. One could say the same for something like FF VII.

    Why can't we get this here?

    FF11 is important to Americans too, you know!

    I met my wife on FF11.

    played that game for so many years...to bad abysea and the cap up from 75 pretty much ruined the game -_-

    now to wait for SE to fix the disaster that was FF14....2.0 is way too far away.

    From what I heard, Abyssea has made the game fun again from a lull.

    Coming from a few old linkshell members that still play.

    Wow, this sounds great! And while everyone's together there, they could all talk about Final Fantasy XIV and how wonderf- oh, right.

    Huh, kind of a bummer.
