PS2IGN seems to be out to make a mess out of every Square fansite on the net with its supposed mention of "Final Fantasy VII-2" as a possible PSP title. We haven't even seen the handheld itself, though.1
The closest I can come to finding a public denial right now is this quote from FFInsider:
" On Final Fantasy VII, Nomura stated that the chances of a sequel were unrealistic. Since Final Fantasy X-2 was built mostly off the engine of its predecessor, it was fairly easy to quickly produce a sequel. However, the much older engine of Final Fantasy VII would be unusable, and the game would have to be built mostly from scratch. This would require the development time and resources of a brand new Final Fantasy."
That's true. However, if you follow the PS2IGN link, you'll find...
"A sequel to FFVII?" comments Kitase while laughing. "In truth, there are many who'd like to make such a game, Nomura, who's working on Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, included. Many of the Square staff participated in the development of FFVII, and the memories are strong. Additionally, expressing the world of FFVII using today's technology would certainly be interesting. However, FFVII still has many fans," he continues. "We couldn't make a bad product."
to assume that ff viI-2 "would" suck is about as retarded as saying it would be good.. how many squaresoft rpgs are bad? i can think of like...2, so please, theres no basis for judging something that doesnt even fuckin exist, and it seems like it wont happen anyways (would be cool if they did it though)
To TRS:I have been playing FF-games seen 18 dec. 1987.
FFVII is a great game but not that type of game you want to spend a year to part two. A good final fantasy has dragons, black mages , castles and all things like that. FFVII dosent have that. Dont get me wrong now I hold no greed to FFVII.
So to you rookie dont say that a game that dont exist is good. Okej?
To the pompous prick with a lot of 5?s in his name: yeah, okay, first dont assume what i know and dont know, second, you can play the freakin tambourine all day long and still suck at it MEANING dont think you can say whats good and what is proper and whatever. Me saying "would be cool" was referring to my own hopes of seeing the game come out, FF VII had a very open ending, and you got to see how the world was 500 years later...and I dont know you but that can give a lot of room to explain how the world got to that state, maybe a state of anarchy rose and many mercenary groups tried to take over, a new evil came out? whatver, im not about to guess what could suare do, thats their job. However, since you seem so smart and capable of predicting storylines, please do us all a favor and tell us wtf FF XII will be about since im dying to know, okaj?
I agree with trs, there are many things that could occur in 500 years and even if they dont make a sequal they could still make a prequal. there are many unanswered questions about cloud's past. As for the game being good,who knows, but imagine VII's storyline with X's graphics and fighting style. It's got to be something worth playing.
For someone who claims to have been into the franchise since the beginning, your basis for what a good Final Fantasy game entails is scewed. Horribly. Obviously, by your reasoning, you don't look for Story, Characters, Game Play, or any of these things when judging the game. Apparently it must have "dragons, black mages , castles and all things like that." Thank you for setting me straight. All this time I was paying more attention to the story of the game when the real important things were lost to me. How silly of me, thinking that a Final Fantasy can still be good without a Black Mage or, god forbid, a castle.
I must admit, I found Akira555's "post" humorous as well.
Zer0 - A prequel might be "possible", but there are probably less questions about Cloud's past than you're aware of. Read some story FAQs - most of the questions you think you're left with are actually answered in the game already.
Expecting to be able to predict any sequel to a game by Square is ludicrous - the most enticing example of our collective ignorance would of course be Chrono Cross. Thousands of fans spent years writing supposed sequels and fan-fiction storylines based on Chrono Trigger, but what Masato Kato actually brought forth in the game (in terms of story) was more far-fetched and complicated than any of us could have imagined. That's just an example why Kato is a director at Square Enix, and the fans are not. They're just stupid fans who think they know what's best for a series :P
So to summarize: FFX-2 will likely be cooler and stranger than we could imagine; FFVII-2 would probably be as well. Square Enix is our shared "favourite" for a reason, right?
You americans make me sick. The game will never come anyway So to you all: J?vla horungar, hur h?g Iq har ni? Ni ?r alla in hop av runkgubbar. Och TRS plus resten ?r skit s?kert mammaknullare, offer i sin egen skit.
Akira555, chill out. Calling us all IQ-less heaps of shit and motherfuckers in Swedish isn't going to make you seem intelligent, nor is it going to give you some kind of upper hand in your argument. And we're not all Americans, either, so your pseudo-European elitist attitude is forlorn as well. I suggest you get your act together and try acting like an actual human being for a while.
Matt you got a nice site. But I don`t smoke cocks so you go find some other playmate. Okej lad?
And Rachel you fat american bitch You turn this nice forum to on hell Iraq war. Stop that. I was talking about a game and what I think about in start only. No mod of struggle.
hahaha, yeas, i forgot this was a forum...oh weell...its nice that you resort to swearing and foul language when you run out of convincing arguments and then you use a stereotype to define us...thats nice..specially when the last thing I am is an american. Better luck next time champ ;)
Akira555...the just innocently posting, ne ? Well...that was the case until you referred to my friend TRS as a rookie...And by the way...since you took the time to look at my profile you would notice that it say nothing about me being fat...or American...I am ,however, a bitch......and Matt didnt say you smoked cock...I did ! So lay off him and TRS..It's not their fault you've been playing FF for so long you cream yourself every time you see a chocobo...you are just what the world needs...another fanboy who will live in his mother's basement until he's 45....
...I'll fucking bounty hunt your body like I'm Boba Fett
'cause you a toy not a soldier yet
You better hold your neck
You dick smokers get no respect
With the blood, ice your watch, rock your rocks
Better rock it on the screen and not the blocks
I bet you are gay, because you have boy`s name.
And one more thing, NEVER EVER HAVE ANYBODY BEEN SO RUDE TO ME AS YOU!!!!!!!! FUCKING BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU FAAAAATTTTT..... HORNY GIRL...... DID PAPA SUCK YOU BAD ???? IS THAT WHY YOU ARE SO BAD????? OR ARE YOU JUST SICK????
ONE OF MY LADS COULD SET UP A VIRUS ON THIS SITE.
I WILL NOT BE VERY FUNNY. SAY ONE MORE THING TO ME AND IT WILL COME TRUE. LAST WARNING.
Uh, who has a boy's name? Us guys? Well obviously.
You need to chill out, my friend. Threatening to hack the site with your "lads" (now who's gay?) will certainly not gain you any respect! Maybe you should start cursing in Swedish again; I haven't used the translator for a while.
to the ..."pompous" lad with a lot of 5?s in his name:
wow, youre soo scary my good fellow! and since you obviouslly werent taught proper gentleman manners in the school that taught you such words to refer to "pals" and...."friends" so just to keep it polite: go fuck yourself you inmature little bitch that started to act all holy on us, you got nothing and at the first sign of losing truth in your reasoning you resorted to foul language. So, go back to jerking off to the pictures of your dad pleasing himself with sharp cheese cutting objects and learn some manners...or contemporary english if you may, okej?
Asshole555------What the hell is wrong with you did your mother forget to breast feed you today..I mean...I've heard it can agitate children..but jeez....Anyway, Hikari can be both male and female..however I am female..at least you got that right.....also..I am indeed horny...do you have a problem with that...well..I figured someone as gay as yourself would have a problem with a horny girl....now....will you please just shut your goddamn, motherfucking, shitfaced, dograping, baby eating mouth before I have to beat you with a virtual lead pipe !
All I wish to say to the pompous-arrogant-elitist-cocksmoking-motherfucking-ball-licking-man with many 5in his name is this :
Estie calicve de tabernacle tu es un idiot qui ne d?serve pas l'oxygen dont il respire. Ainsi, tu n'es pas le seul personne capable de parler plus qu'une language, non plus d'?tre capable de sacrer dans cette language. Pas tout le monde qui visite ce site est Americain, comme mes copains vous avez dit. Moi, je suis Canadien. Alors, va fourrer le chien, tu est rempli de merde.
?h, I am sorry horny girl I did know you had no friends in the real world, your so fat and ugly so you must travel on website to website. Sad story.
To YUNA1881... you fucking slut mind your stuff.
And Rob you must be a jew one of those Hitler didn`t finish off hope your famliy burned well in Auschwitz.
Very low class human you are and ugly name anyway.
Din j?vla fittunge kommer du n?gonsin till Sverige s? ska d?da dig med ett j?rn r?r. Hela din fitt familj kan brinna den sikt du ligger i hora. Sjuka kukhuvud och en riktig idiot, nazisterna kommer att suga livet ur dig opus. Sedan du din franska fitta inte v?gar f?r vi v?l ?nska yuna1881 och rachel med ett pojk namn kan du dra en med slidungar som ni ?r.
Thank you all for this good time I loved to stay here a bit longer but In have work do finish I "real" world so goodbye, and rob motherfucking dickhead I glad low class human so we germans can feel gods sometimes bye bye asshole.
Hey asswhipe. even if you don't understand french, it shouldn't be hard to look at the word on the second last line that clearly shows I am a Canadian. Now, maybe in asswhipe-town Sweden, or Norway, or whatever the fuck Scandanavian country you come from, they don't teach you how to understand the obvious, but everywhere else in the world, including under-priviledged Africa, they do.
Yeah, you still got it... a predilection for ad hominem attacks.
This reminds me of yesterday when I was walking around at night. There was this German-sounding woman who asked us if we knew what a "cock sllt" was. I guess she still hasn't quite grasped the nuances of vulgar English slang quite yet, like our friend here. :P
-IQ-less heaps of shit and motherfuckers
-shitfaced, dograping, eater of babies
-fat american bitch
-you are gay
-go fuck yourself you inmature little bitch
-shut your goddamn, motherfucking, shitfaced, dograping, baby eating mouth
-you fucking slut
-you anti-semitic bastard
None is fouler than the language spoken here. He he... makes me laugh.
555's--> You're a fucking moron. Do you have any clue how iggnorant and unintelligent you are? You don't even deserve the time that has been wasted to dis your ass. Low class human? Excuse me but take a look at exactly how dim-witted and inept you sound. Please. Vous ?tes un ingrate foutu. Vous ne pouvez pas m?me parler la langue fran?aise proporly, pourtant vous avez les boules ? continuer et pour dire ce que vous . Vous ?tes truely la seule personne antis?mitique ici. Tsh... get a fucking life.
SpiketheThird2.....would'nt that mean you're SpiketheFourth ???? Any...FF7-2....I just dont know....mixed feelings I guess...if they could get the exact same people who worked on FF7 to do it..then fine......but....what if they just half-assed it thinking it would sell well based on name alone ?
Well, I accually used to be registered under the name SpiketheThird... but then it wouldn't let me post comments anymore. (Dunno why.) So I reregistered as SpiketheThird2. Heh... oh well.
Well, yeah... I dunno. I'm pretty confident in Square. They've never disapointed us with a game yet ('cept maybe FF9) but I think they'd be pretty good about making it like the first. They know how pissed fans would be and it would hurt their rep if they screwed up, so I'm sure they'd put a lot of time and effort into it. Though that is another problem. They may be to afraid to attempt a remake or sequel because of those reasons.
