Hopefully they show Wii's CC game. I'm dying to see what it looks like.

So is the FFXIII stuff going to be shown in a closed theater or are we actually going to see something this time around?

Most likely the Closed Mega Theatre. The Open Mega Theatre is for stuff actually coming out this year.

So how is this going to work? Will we get blogger updates like we did during the pre-party conference?

Also I had a much better title for this thread.

We might, it doesn't really matter. The event is on all day, and most detailed updates will likely be posted in the evening (Japan time) when people get home and type it up. I doubt it'll be media SILENCE all day though, since this is a public event. Unless it's ****ing boring. :lol

I'm assuming that the second the party starts, media outlets will be able to release the trailer of FFCC Wii they showed the other day? I hope so, my interest is piqued.

I hope so. I want to see just how far they've pushed the Wii.

Since Square Enix has had a remake fever the last couple of months, why won't they remake Chrono Trigger or Legend of Mana while they're at it? Those games are better than most Final Fantasy games.

Well, from what I understand, the rights to Chrono Trigger is all spread out amongst the team members. So Square really can't remake it.

No, that's not true. Square Enix owns the rights to Chrono Trigger. It's not getting remade for the same reason Xenogears isn't getting remade. Why waste resources when you can sell over 50k copies of FF1 on PSP and over 100k of FFT on PSP? :P

Why not farm both out to TOSE or whoever and bank as much profit as possible?

Why waste resources on FF1&2 and FFT on PSP when they could remake FFVII (on anything) and sell 1.5+ million easily?

Because that would weaken the Final Fantasy name! God forbid they do that! They probably have something in store for FFVII...

Yeah, they pulled it from the conference according to IGN. I hope it is still playable at the party, but I'm starting to doubt.

You sure? We still have a decade of FFXIII to get through. Think they can spare the resources? :lol

It was originally reported that it would be playable at the Party. I guess that was a mistake since Watch Impress clarified that only FFCC DS would be playable. I've corrected it. Sorry. :(
