I know it has been a while since the Disc 1 locations post, but I figured I would finish this up. Back in December I posted about the locations in Disc 1 that I am looking forward to the most seeing in HD, and this will be the Disc 2 & 3 version. So let’s get to it!
- The Icicle Inn. Maybe because I am from the Northeast section of the country, I don’t know, but I am a sucker for a good snow town. Couple this with the Great Glacier section that comes right after this, and this should be a breathtaking recreation in HD. I would imagine snowboarding would be pretty awesome.
- The Sunken Gelnika. This is where, if you are anything like me, you spent a lot of time grinding in the game. Other than the Mover/Magic Pot enemies in the Northern Crater, this is the best place to level up characters and materia. It is a small location, but after playing FFXV and seeing how they made monsters in 3D, I think it is safe to assume the monsters in this area are going to loo pretty fucking bad-ass.
- Mideel. Much like I am a sucker for snow towns, I am also a sucker for tree houses, and Mideel is pretty much just one big tree house. The battle with Ultimate Weapon here should be pretty cool as well, especially the fallout from that fight when the Lifestream breaks through the ground.
- How can any list be complete without the Northern Crater? While I think most of this dungeon is funky, the idea of traveling down, down, down to the center of the planet in HD is pretty fucking cool. I cannot wait to see Safer Sephiroth redone in HD, along with a, presumably, updated version of One Winged Angel.
