Ties in with what Nomura said in his interview with OPM.'Dramatic changes' and Advent Children will help shape the Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine, game director Tetsuya Nomura said that the team will be making "dramatic changes" to the game's fights. "And of course, that being said we want to clarify: We’re not going to be changing it into a shooter or something like that. We are going to be bringing dramatic changes, but we want to make sure it’s still recognizable."
If the thought of something different-but-kinda-the-same brought to mind the 2005 film Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children, you're not too far off from Nomura's own thinking. Nomura stated that the team will be looking to the movie - which Nomura also directed - for visual references and inspiration, but that he and his team "don’t intend on utilising the 3D models of Advent Children as is because, well, it’s a different technology, and it’s actually been almost ten years since Advent Children was first released."
Good news to me.
I don't want just a shinier FF7, I want them to take full advantage of today's tech and like Nomura said before. It would look a bit funny having the same ATB system with the characters looking this good.
Advent children was 10 years ago.
Still holds up and the battle scenes are good inspirtation IMO.
