Angry Did anyone find the trailer narrative clever and well done?

I sure did! It was not only ominous but it really felt awesome because the narrator really nailed it in with references to the fans and the demand of this remake, I also love the joy and fear line too because there are some people cautious about the remake while others are very happy about it and will accept it as it is. What are your guys impression on it? I also love the guy's voice in it too!

It was pretty great, I thought. I'm just listening to it again on our new podcast episode and it works just as well as audio alone. Anyway, it seems like you largely agree with my analysis here.

@Flintlock, xD Indeed I did! I loved that analysis and very well done too! Read it before I came here, I noticed stuff I never even noticed before like the kids for example? Never knew one had a Buster Sword like prop in his hand!

TBF... it was very much a fanservice narration, with the text being about the fans and how they wanted a remake and shit (in allegories and wishy-washy speak), not so much about the game itself, . I'm sure they'll do a more official game trailer in the nearish future though. Maybe they'll redo the TV commercials, which at least for me personally were the first time ever they did commercials for video games on TV here.

@Cthulhu, Wanna know I hope they'll do? (Nice suggestion on the TV commericals by the way!) When the game releases? I hope they do a PS4 render of Cloud replicating the PS1 CD/Boxart. How awesome of a throwback that would be? XD Kinda hoping for it!

If we can have that quality of writing and voice acting for the entire game, we'll be in very good shape.

I definitely enjoyed it. So many double meanings with the dialogue--I thought it was very well done.

On the one side, I agree and hope they do that. On the other, I'm a cynic that thinks they'll just replace it with something grimdark, . Also of note is that in some countries (Europe? My FFIX copy has just the logo), the FF games just had the logo as a cover - which TBF is kinda boring. Unless you dig minimalism.

Original Japanese cover of FFVII has that mostly white but with logo thing going on. I like it, but I do dig minimalism.
I think it would be a waste, though, now that games are capable of looking so GOOD.
If they do replicate the original's cover, I really hope they don't whitewash the background again. I don't really get why they did that to begin with.

This.

I think the text was good but I'm just not a fan of voiceovers in this kind of thing. If it had just been text interspersed throughout the trailer it would have been so much better IMO.

I mean, I can read and I trust the directors to make the trailer itself dramatic enough without having someone come in and do a voiceover to hammer it in. The voice isn't important to me and actually detracts from the value and seriousness of what's being said.

tl;dr - Down with voiceovers!

This would be cool, but folks need to remember that only the US box art had images with FF games. In the rest of the world, it was just the logo. And I've always been rather attached to the simple, sleek design of just the logo on the front cover of FF games.

To be fair, the text was probably written in kind of poetic Japanese. I think the English text is pretty good, considering it's a translation, and well... English is English. It's a rich language but it's not that elegant compared to some other languages.

That would be awesome as well as each of the characters' model poses
