Quite a lot of people want a Final Fantasy VII remake – we know it, you know it and Square Enix certainly knows it.
In an interview with Famitsu, the series’ character designer Tetsuya Nomura shared his thoughts on the possibility of a remake.
“There are a lot of people who want a remake of Final Fantasy VII. However, new titles take precedence.
“We work our hardest to make something that might be even better than Final Fantasy VII.”
To put a further dampener on the chances of a remake emerging any time soon, Nomura also commented: “The new Final Fantasy must overcome the Final Fantasy of the past.”
Last year, Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase outlined that a remake of FFVII would take “ten times longer to create” than Final Fantasy XIII, so their message seems to be to shut up about a remake because it certainly isn’t happening any time soon.
