Final Fantasy VII remade on PS3! ...In LittleBigPlanet 2

Shares

If you're a Square Enix fan and you own a PS3, chances are you'd drool over the prospect of a high-def remake of the defining RPG known as Final Fantasy VII. Well, your dreams have kind of come true, only not really.

Even though LittleBigPlanet 2 hasn't even been released yet, some fame-seeking beta tester has already taken advantage of the game's new game-creation tools to make his own version of Final Fantasy VII.

The game opens with a Cloud Strife version of Sackboy, and goes on to introduce such familiar FFVII staples as the overworld map, chocobos, and even a very menacing-looking Sephiroth. That is, as menacing as any Sackboy can look (though try as you might, Sackboy will never not be cute).

The game's creator is apparently also working on recreating the classic turn-based battle system. Kinda makes the original LitteBigPlanet seems really limited, doesn't it?

So, we're probably never going to see a full-fledged version of Final Fantasy VII remade in full, glorious fashion, but with people like this ambitious LittleBigPlanet fan, at least the legacy will never die.

    C'mon everyone, lets face it: even if FF7 does eventually get remade, you know all the FF7 fanboys are just going to cry that the original game's legacy has been ruined. Fanboys will NEVER be happy. Ever.

    I'm a Nintendo fanboy that loves FF7 and Kirby's Epic Yarn and I still found that video pretty embarrassing... I will defiantly not be playing this game around other people if I get it Lol, at least Kirby makes up for that games awesome cuteness with fun coop gameplay and well... a reason for the cuteness. I guess I just don't like the look of the bag people or something... Guess I fail to see this games potential...

    That is incredibly impressive. Although if you played that music over the top of a violent gang massacre i would still have a sweeping, nostalgic, yet strangley vacant grin.

    Wow, they're pulling out all the stops. Kinda like what happened with Scribblenauts.

    If this turns out to be any good it might actually make me get a PS3!

    There you go, fanboys. Final Fantasy VII is getting remade. Now please stop talking about it.

  • NanoElite666 - December 21, 2010 5:42 a.m.

    Well, now I've seen a take on a flying game, an FPS, and now this. Wonder what they'll come up with next? This is officially the most ambitious game in the history of forever.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh! Wish I had a ps3 so I could get LBP2 when it comes out.
  • Crabhand - December 21, 2010 4:18 a.m.

    That's a pretty incredible (and ambitious) project. It already looks to be shaping up very well.
  • ssj4raditz - December 21, 2010 3:32 a.m.

    Geez, that's pretty awesome! I think LBP2 might be the only game I need next year, if the user-created content is anywhere near this good all-around! ... Ah, who am I kidding? I'll still get other games, but damn if this isn't going to be a HUGE time-sink.
  • kknight - December 21, 2010 3:31 a.m.

    they should make a star wars version in LBP2
  • NightCrawler_358 - December 21, 2010 2:39 a.m.

    LittleBigPlanet 2 will have unlimited games inside one box. I'm so impressed how they're actually improving from what i thought to be an already perfect game!
  • Markstone - December 21, 2010 2:15 a.m.

    This game is gonna be awesome :D
  • EnragedTortoise1 - December 21, 2010 1:43 a.m.

    It really is a platform for games. Now all they need to do is make an editor that allows you to make editors that make specific types of games! :P

    Sack Aerith dies. There, it's said. SPOILER FIRST!
