Square Enix to explore possibility of Final Fantasy VII remake Many fans of the Final Fantasy franchise have been clamoring for a remake of the seventh game in the series. According to Square Enix that dream may be closer to becoming a reality.

According to Siliconera, Yoichi Wadda, President and CEO of Square Enix had something to say about the possibility of a Final Fantasy VII remake. Wadda indicated that the company plans on exploring the possibility of remaking the game. He stated, “We’re going to explore the possibility – whether or not we’re going to do it, if we’re going to do it, and the platform.”

Wadda also said, “Right now we don’t have a clear direction, but many fans have requested we remake Final Fantasy VII." Besides the fans, Yoshinori Kitase, producer of Final Fantasy XIII even expressed desire to helm a remake.

This is actually pretty big news as the CEO is confirming that the company will be officially looking into remaking the game. This is a bit more promising then developers “expressing” interest in a remake.

    Good evening….tardflake.

  2. Barnabe Jones:

    I think it’s only a matter of time before they do it. It would be easy to do, plus it would sell like crazy.

    All they need to do is:
    -Keep the story the same. Maybe add a few scenes
    -Keep the dialog the same, add voice acting
    -Keep the battle system the same, just update the graphics
    -Keep it a PS3 exclusive, so the game will have towns and an airship.

    Easy. If they do it right, it could be great. If not, it will be a disaster.

  3. The Future of Sega:

    Did he died?

  4. JofaMang:

    FFVII remake bundled with launch PS4. Next generation console battle over before it begins.

  5. The Future of Sega:

    Did he dead?

  6. SW:

    @Jofa – Yeah but Sony will be Sony and expect it to come to their machine based on good will and the ‘dominance of the PS brand!’…

    Exclusive (timed) DLC on XBL I reckon ;)

  7. FahKinSuPah:

    Square needs to make up their fucking minds.

    Every so many months they release a statement saying that they are going to do it, or not going to do it… whatever the oposite of the last thing they said is.

    I for one am tired of i t. Your eithr going to do it or your not going to do it.

    So Just do it and get it over with already

  8. ncaissie:

    FOS Did you fix your PS3?

    I just got an 80GB BC one.

  9. ncaissie:

    Like the GOW collection I would buy a remake of FF7.

  10. Roca.:

    I started my second playthrough on GOW3, I noticed something at the beginning.

    the anyone else noticed Ares in the beginning? he is frozen now since he is dead

  11. Ivan_PSP:

    I call for Final Fantasy VII as another Sony PS3 exclusive.

  12. ncaissie:

    “the anyone else noticed Ares in the beginning? he is frozen now since he is dead”
    I noticed him. I think it was a statue.

  13. Roca.:

    nope….haha
    it was a Ares himself (the Huge form) that was frozen inside on of those temples in the snowing cliff, its like during the first 10-15mins of the game.

  14. oldschool1987:

    If they do remake FFVII then I hope they keep it a fixed camera as well. Sounds strange I know but it would seem too different walking around with the camera behind you, I always think of the top down view lol.

    On the world map I want stupidly big guy and tiny towns lol, keep it the same! Also random encouters on the world map as well …only on the world map though.

  15. ncaissie:

    hmm… I will have to look my 3rd time through. I lent out my copy for a couple of days.

  16. Ivan_PSP:

    Square-Enix is getting desperate.

  17. The Future of Sega:

    Lol hey Mike I was just kidding. All of that “died, dead” stuff was a quote from Youtube. If you check out fail blog on youtube you’ll see that there are numerous idiots posting that crap.

    Ncaisse, no not yet. Over the weekend I’ll try to get it fixed….It fucken sucks though. I can’t text my friends on there….I can’t play Uncharted 2….I can’t play Oblivion….gosh damn!!

    And now I’m stuck to play my xbox 360…..I only have one friend on Xbox 360 lol. People on Live suck!!! Assbags….

  18. ncaissie:

    “I only have one friend on Xbox 360 lol. People on Live suck!!! Assbags….” LMAO

    The Future of Sega:
    When i was playing GTA IV on Xbox Live people were really awesome and friendly held of a fun.

  20. ncaissie:

    “When i was playing GTA IV on Xbox Live people were really awesome and friendly held of a fun.”

    That is because you are one of the Assbags he is talking about.

  21. Ivan_PSP:

    Barnabe Jones:
    Hell yeah i agree with that.

  22. Funkinstien:

    They wont remake it. Im pretty sure sony owns the rights to FF7 so square cant make it multiplat.

  23. Roca.:

    Sony does have some sort of ownership over FF7

  24. Ultima:

    remake for the fucking wiiiiiiin

  25. stopstopp:

    Don’t remake it. I’ve already spent enough money on that game as it is.

  26. jojo29:

    @Roca

    How could you have missed that at the begining? Also, right before the room, when Gaia breaks the bridge, remember to pick up the Red Orb box there. :)

    FF7 Remake ONLY BELONGS on PSN/PS3, as evident by the fiasco MS put Square through with FF13…its kinda the reason im like “meh” with FF13, just knowing it was scaled back, towns were removed, and exploration nullified by the 360 hardware is enough for me to warrant playing FF13 in spurts…

    Hope Square learned its lesson from whoring itself out..

    And remember all the hype behind Mistwalker and how the creator of Mistwalker is what made FF7 and the like..

    Guess it wasn’t him who “made” the game afterall…lol Thata what he gets, along with Valve, for dissing and not siding with the ps3 sad to say, he shoulda stayed where he belonged.

  27. Liquid:

    guys sony published final fantasy 7. . .they have the rights to it

  28. Ivan_PSP:

    Final Fantasy VII: Remake release on Xbox 360
    product-reviews.net/2010/03/23/final-fantasy-vii-remake-release-on-xbox-360-too/

    “We’re going to explore the possibility – whether or not we’re going to do it, if we’re going to do it, and the platform.”

  29. Liquid:

    im not buyin it if it goes on 360

  30. RomasantaMC:

    @liquid
    god forbid it goes multiplat and they force you not to play a good game. Sony owns the rights to FF7 so I doubt you have to worry about it. When they said the platform I assume they were talkn Ps3/Psp

  31. RomasantaMC:

    ^^^^^^
    I messed up on above post Sony = square
