Many of you saw the Final Fantasy VII tech demo that was shown during E3 2006. Repeatedly SquareEnix has said that the tech demo was made only to show the power of the PS3 and was not evolving into a full remake. Even today many people still mistake the trailer as an announcement for a remake of the title. VG247 spoke with Yoshi Kitase and Motomu Toriyama at GamesCom through a translator who said “There’s no official project that’s up and running for a remake of Final Fantasy VII at this point.” Which is the usual answer, but he also added “They do talk about it on a personal level, like, ‘If we did it it would be like this or like that.’”
Square Enix loves keeping it safe by relying on franchises and remakes, so a remake of Final Fantasy VII is inevitable. It is just a matter of when and what platform its remade on. If you can’t wait for your Final Fantasy VII fix, the original Final Fantasy VII has been up on PSN for quite some time.
