You mean with ATB? Presumably a remake wouldn't mess with that too much.
On the other hand, unless it was remade to still be static backgrounds with models moving in front of them, I suspect the moment-to-moment movement through the world would have be done more like a modern game, which might mean changes to the combat as well.
In my fantasy scenario, the entire game would be remade in full 3D just like it was a brand new title.
This is cool and all but I heard this same thing last year and I even messaged mods about it and they said they heard the same thing...I guess we have to wait and see. I'm not getting my hopes up again
I imagine not only would Sony have to help with funding, but also help with development.
Square-Enix can't even seem to finish one of their mainline FFs in a reasonable amount of time these days, but a full remake of an 18 year old game?
At this point I'm concerned with FFXV even making retail by the end of 2016. God knows how KH3's production is going. If (big 'if') a FFXVI has started production or even pre-production, where the hell would that leave a big FFVII Remake?
