FF7 7 Remake Part 2: what we want to see
More playable characters
While it was really fun controlling Cloud, Barret, Tifa, and Aerith in the first installment of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, there is a whole slew of characters in the original that we wish we could control. We don’t know about you, but playing the gun vampire Vincent seems like a great time.
Some crazy stories turn
With the end of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, we expect Tetsuya Nomura to reshape the classic game into something entirely new. While some fans may want a faithful recreation of the original game, we’re kind of interested to see how exactly the story may change in the next installments. We don’t want to see anything coming.
Because the next installment in the game will likely be an open world, we want to see a super rugged chocobo racing mini-game. In the original game, this side activity was necessary to unlock some of the most powerful materials in the game, and with the fun that it was in Final Fantasy XV, we can’t wait to see what that looks like in the next iteration of the game. remake.
All kinds of mini-games
We can’t wait to see what the Gold Saucer looks like in the Final Fantasy 7 remake already, because it’s this big, shiny amusement park full of mini-games. But, with the technology coming in the 23 years since the original game was released, we want to see even more activity in this area.
Next-generation visuals and ray tracing
Because we’re likely going to see the next installment in the Final Fantasy 7 remake on next-gen consoles (and, hopefully, PC), we’d like to see the game even better than the first installment. With ray tracing becoming more and more popular, we would love to see the fantastic landscapes come to life in huge ways.
