• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!

Uhhhh best of luck to them.
Did you think that was an offical Square announcement?
No, the project is just impossibly ambitious.
no, that's just poor motivation and lack of drive.
Anything is possible if you got the skill, motivation and drive. More importantly the assets, source code and a good team.
just because it's by fan(s) doesn't automatically mean/make it impossible.
Have faith.

Some new screens. Progress is slow, but certainly on the move.

1.
If someone's actually remaking all of this, why not just make the game in 3D? The pre-rendered backgrounds were just because of the hardware limits of the time. You could easily have the same scenes and same camera angles with proper 3D scenes.
 
Unfortunately, from what people are saying, the Switch version seems to still have bugs that were in previous ports (PC/PS4 and mobile) - music starts from the beginning after battles, rather than picking up where it left off, and there's a lack of true analog control (ie, you can use the analog stick, but you only move in eight directions). I was really looking forward to picking this up, but those issues are giving me pause. For the time being I think I may hold off on this one, especially since I still have my PS1 discs; hopefully it'll be fixed, though since S-E has let the bugs stand for a while now, I'm not particularly optimistic about them releasing a patch.

Just saw this, it was posted a year ago:

That's awesome. I think he has said FF9 is his favourite before. So that wasn't just a routine, that was his actual opinion.

It makes sense. FF9 is the most advanced reimagining of what he originally wanted the series to be.
