The lights are on
If Square Enix decides to remake Final Fantasy VII someday, it'll be once the publisher feels it created a Final Fantasy game that exceeds the quality of the 1997 PlayStation classic.
President and CEO Yoichi Wada discussed the topic of a Final Fantasy VII remake at a recent shareholder's briefing in Japan. According to a translated report by Andriasang, Wada said presently the company "is not making Final Fantasy games that exceed the quality of Final Fantasy VII." If they were to release a VII remake right now, "the Final Fantasy franchise would be done with."
The report also said the staff would happily make a Final Fantasy VII remake. If they decide to do it, they will give their full effort.
i remember playing the first Disc in one night.
and then i never finished it :( this remake should come faster.
Well that is too bad. However if thier plan is to create a final fantasy that is on par with VII then i would be all for that.
While I would love a remake of VII and VIII, I would love just as much a new Final Fantasy that was actually good. FF13 and FF13-2 were OK, but are a far cry from what one expects from a Final Fantasy game.
Oh, so they have to make a game better than one of the best Japanese RPGs ever created. I guess I should keep my PS1 then.
