Final Fantasy VII Remake Gets Definitive Answer
The guys over at VG247 should be applauded for asking direct and difficult questions to game companies and the people who make them. They recently caught up with two of Square’s big-names at GamesCom last week and asked what everyone else has been thinking.
VG247: “Will we ever see a remake of Final Fantasy VII?”
Yoshi Kitase and Motomu Toriyama: “There’s no official project that’s up and running for a remake of Final Fantasy VII at this point.”
So yeah, they say in the standard game-speak “at this point” to cover their asses meaning we could or couldn’t see a remake coming down the tubes eventually. However seeing Square’s business in the past I would have to say that it’s inevitable.
If you’re dying to get some FFVII gaming on, go download it from the PSN Store and have a ball. I’m wagering that as soon as the sales from that dry up, we’ll see more news out of the company about a potential remake. Seeing how they’ve been in production hell for FFXIII, we should see a remake sometime before I turn 60.
