Yes. It will be 3 whole games at a minimum.
So they're turning a 40-50 hour story into 150-200 hours.
It will be absolutely huge when it's done, but unfortunately will take a while

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Yeah, when we have more info about just how many parts & how long it'll all take.... That's when I'll get hyped up properly! I do think what they showed looked awesome, BTW; it's just if it's going to take 10 years or more until the last part is out, I can't get very excited yet

I would wager a good amount of money that there will be no additional parts to the FFVII remake besides this first one. It just seems like such a colossal boondoggle so far. One has to wonder about the amount of resources and man hours they've sunk into this project so far, and how that will balance against revenue.

Ah, Square... all I want is turn-based, numbered Final Fantasy games. Is that so much to ask?

I'll take that bet, because there's no way that's happening lololol.

I was wondering if anybody would be willing to offer some helpful advice. I've finally gotten back into FFVI and have gotten to where I can enter Kefka's tower at the end of the game. I've had a good setup that I like, but now I have to split into 3 groups and it really breaks up what I've been doing to get this far. Any advice on the best way to go or how to set up my groups? What levels I should be at or equipment or spells to have? Thanks.

Have you got everyone back, @Xyphon22 .... ? You can, in theory, try it with just 3 people Obviously, it's easier if you have everyone available, though

@BruceCM I got all the regular people back, so I have exactly 12 people. I lost the one person at the halfway point, but I got the Yeti. Apparently there is someone I don't know named Gogo or something that I haven't gotten. I've looked at GameFAQs but I've never even heard of most of the spells and equipment they suggest having, and they also say some of the people I've used are horrible and not to use them (notably Cyan), so I have clearly been doing it differently up to this point.

I hate it when games force you to use characters you otherwise would have no reason to. Especially in a game like VI where there are so many to choose from, and it's easy to let your backbenchers get underleveled. In general though I'm not the biggest fan of VI.

I hear you. I've tried to use everybody when I get them, but many of them just seemed entirely useless so I went back to my good group. But now I'm forced to use not just a few but everybody and it's rough. I wanted to play this because I've always heard it's between this and Chrono Trigger for best RPG ever, but this is just another place where CT is so much better.

Yeah, not a big fan of how VI handled characters. Benchwarmers in particular.

Well, I don't even know what the dinosaur forest is. I do know a couple of side quests that I have not done yet, though, so I guess I can go do those to try to level some other people up. I was just really hoping to finally beat this game so I can start playing Tales of Vesperia (I don't like having more than one big game, especially RPGs, going at the same time).

It's a small forested area where very strong dinosaurs appear. It kinda looks like a dinosaur head itself, if you need a tip to find it.

The brachiosaurs give stupid amounts of experience and ability points, and sometimes drop a certain rare item that you definitely want to have.

You definitely need to be prepared to take them on, but once you can manage to kill one, it's like a snowball going downhill.

If you need help finding Gogo the mime, he currently resides in a small desert. Like, literally, inside the desert. You need to find a way in.

Farming Cactuars was handy for AP. I just taught everyone everything. Including Ultima. And I think I used the Moogle (?) Charm on Mog to prevent encounters (sans bosses) for one group.

I was thinking about doing that to avoid encounters, so I think I will. And Ultima is the one that I've seen everyone talk about, but I don't think I have any Espers that teach that. At least I've never seen it. I've been doing well enough just spamming Drill with the guy that I can't remember his name, Sabin's Blitz that shoots like air boomerangs at everyone, whatever I can find the time to build Cyan's special up to (usually 4 because it attacks multiple enemies), and have Strago use the Heal Rod to heal everyone. Everyone does around 2000 damage per attack without wasting MP. Is Ultima considerably better than that?

Ultima on a character with good magic, plus the soul of thamasa and the celestriad relics equiped= 19,998 damage per turn for the low low cost of 2 MP.

There's also some really good relics for strong physical attackers, that let you attack way way way more times per turn than normal.

Also, I'd recommend you go look for Sabin's old house for something nice (the one where he lived with his master and the other guy you killed early on in the game).

@StableInvadeel Yep, I would say that is considerably better. I guess I should try to find those things, although I do not know what any of them are. But I guess I can look that up. Definitely not taking the time to randomly search the world, I have better things to do with my life. And unfortunately it was so long ago that I started this game I don't remember anything about where Sabin lived or even killing anybody. But again, the internet is my friend.

@Xyphon22 I can give you vague hints!

The soul of thamasa is kept by the leader of the Cult of Kefka, in a place where the spells Rasp and Osmose are your best friends. Depending on the version of the game you can also steal it from an enemy, although I'm not sure which.

The celestriad is a rare drop from a certain long-necked dinosaur.

Sabin's old house is a single lonesome house at the foot of a mountain.

@StableInvadeel Cool, thanks. And I'm pretty sure I actually have that spell that is my best friend, although I've never used it. I almost never use magic except for healing. It sounds like I need to start, though.
