Now we have 3 AC threads going?
Oh well, since BigNutter was the first out of the gate, his thread has a priority.
1-UP.com has March 14 as a release date for AC. There is no confirmation of that from Square Enix. So it could be just pure speculation, or wishful thinking, or leaked information. Anyways, even if that date is right, it would be for a Japanese release only.
Tetsuya Nomura posted an article on the Shin-Ra website about two weeks ago. I read the translation here
Also, there’s another thing I’d like to inform you all. Well, more
like I’ve got a bomb to drop…
It seems like it juuuuust might exceed 90 mins now…
His puppets (SE representatives) got on my nerves when playing around with numbers re: the length of AC at the Montreal screener – it was 80 minutes long, then 70 and even 60min.
Now, the big man says it’s 90 min plus. Hallelooya! In this case every minute counts. I want more battle scenes, more love scenes, more flashbacks, more slow motion replays, more…
As for the date of release, cost (and such), and what to include as expansion are still being decided upon, and there being no further plans for a preview, whether or not this should be shown on the big screen for the benefit of the moviegoers amongst you guys, is also being considered.
That would be perfect! I will get a DVD of AC no matter what. But the first time I’ll see Advent Children, it should be a special occasion, a “happening”. I want to see it with a bunch of friends, huge screen, huge sound, huge pop-corn (no, fk pop-corn), I want the crowd around me to clap and scream and tap their feet ( like they did at Montreal screening of AC). And as soon as the first note of “One Winged Angel” plays, I want everybody to stand up and light their candles.
