ACC Japanese Site update and Famitsu PS3 article

by April 14, 2009 37 comments

The Advent Children Complete Japanese Site was updated with info about an exhibit at the Ginza Sony Building. There is an event to celebrate ACC’s release and let people experience the world and visuals. It’s open from April 10th to May 17th. You can also watch the latest trailers on a 120 inch high-vision screen with powerful (surround?) sound. There’s also an ACC art gallery until the 17th of this month.

So if you so happen to be in Ginza shopping district of Tokyo, definitely check it out!

Also, the new Famitsu PS3 features an article about Advent Children Complete.  Here are the cover for the magazine and scans of the article:

 Some highlights of the article:

AC was sorta ignored for a while after its release since they wanted to focus on other projects.

They wanted to pushh back the release until the blu-ray market grew big enough, but never expected it to be such a long project.

Nojima wanted fantasy elements for AC.

They wanted to depict the contrast between Cloud and the children, as well as Cloud’s own growth after his meeting with Denzel and the kids.

The upped the depiction of blood and Geostigma quite a bit, since they believed a more realistic depiction would give a more realistic impression of pain.

Since they had quite a bit of time left over, they arranged the songs to fit the scenes better. In AC they tried to fit the scenes with the songs, while in ACC they had the songs tailored to fit the scenes. And created the ‘ideal battle scene’.

Most of the staff didn’t want to touch anything FF7 related in the beginning, but Nomura took the lead(and made them into his slaves. And made onigiri for them in Hawaii).

5 years passed between AC and ACC. Most of the technology they’ve used is different.

They had trouble deciding how much of the new technology used in Versus 13 should be used in ACC.

They’re pretty much done with FF7, saying that it’s hard to think of any other important events that might occur in the universe. They still have ideas, but there won’t be any compilation news for a while.

Thanks to Defade for providing the information about the Famitsu article.

    That’s seriously an awesome looking cover of Sephiroth. It looks like he’s modeling for the camera, LOL

    I can almost see him raising his arms in an insane posture.

      I’m not so big on the cover too. It look’s like Sephiroth’s posing for a model shoot. :monster:

      Good CGI graphics though.

      He just looks plain weird. 😛

      I think it makes him look like a little kid in a way. lol

      It really is freaky how “real” Sephiroth looks. Goddamn SE CGI graphics.

      Tetsujin 15 April, 2009, 22:09

      It’s not really “real”, he just looks as if he’s about to rape someone.

    I don’t care how they made Sephiroth pose for the cover, as long as he’s on there (or as long as it isn’t KH/FFVII Sephiroth). 2 days left and I can enjoy him all I want!!

    What I want to know is, why are we looking up at him from that angle, and what are we doing down there?

    Summary of points for the interview(pretty much translated from what reunion put up, photoscans a bit too blurry D:):

    AC was sorta ignored for a while after its release since they wanted to focus on other projects.

    They wanted to psuh back the release until the blu-ray market grew big enough, but never expected it to be such a long project.

    Nojima wanted for fantasy elements for AC.

    They wanted to depict the contrast between Cloud and the children, as well as Cloud’s own growth after his meeting with Denzel and the kids.

    The upped the depiction of blood and Geostigma quite a bit, since they believed a more realistic depiction would give a more realistic impression of pain.

    Since they had quite a bit of time left over, they arranged the songs to fit the scenes better. In AC they tried to fit the scenes with the songs, while in ACC they had the songs tailored to fit the scenes. And created the ‘ideal battle scene’.

    Most of the staff didn’t want to touch anything FF7 related in the beginning, but Nomura took the lead(and made them into his slaves. And made onigiri for them in Hawaii).

    5 years passed between AC and ACC. Most of the technology they’ve used are different.

    They had trouble deciding how much of the new technology used in Versus 13 should be used in ACC.

    They’re pretty much done with FF7, saying that it’s hard to think of any other important events that might occur in the universe. They still have ideas, but there won’t be any compilation news for a while.

    To be honest, I’m kinda glad they’re going to set FFVII aside for a while. I love FFVII, it’s my favorite game series, but I feel like the storylines have been going very downhill and their (SE’s) work has been getting a little sloppy due to them whoring the characters in other games (Like KH, or Dissidia) or just making new release after new release. FFVII, to me, is losing its magic a bit *but I still love it no matter whut, my gosh, I’m so obsessed* I think a break is good. 🙂
    And lol, I actually don’t like the cover. Sephy looks so odd to me. Hahahah!

      “I feel like the storylines have been going very downhill”

      I never understand that statement considering CC’s story was better than DC’s and it came out after…but whatever, yeah the break is fine.

      “Most of the staff didn’t want to touch anything FF7 related in the beginning”

      What does that mean? Like they were afraid to?

    • Defade
      Defade 15 April, 2009, 13:21

      It’s because they consider a sequel to FF7 itself to be a great challenge. And no matter the result, [the fans will] always have something to complain about.

    • Dark & Divine
      Dark & Divine 15 April, 2009, 13:24

      Nomura himself said in “Distance” that touching FFVII was like opening a Pandora’s box.

    “””They’re pretty much done with FF7, saying that it’s hard to think of any other important events that might occur in the universe. They still have ideas, but there won’t be any compilation news for a while.”””

    What about the bonus ending in FF7 Dirge of Cerberus? I thought the return of Genesis foreshadowed another game in the future.
