Square Enix must surely have been approached a fair number of times in the past, where they were asked about the possibility of remaking Final Fantasy VII – an original which many believed could never be surpassed in terms of the game’s greatness. Well, a new round of fresh rumors concerning a Final Fantasy VII remake has begun yet again, and this time around, the rumor’s source has been traced to NeoGAF member Verendus. Verendus claims to be an industry insider who has had a fair amount of hits in the past, where in an interview with Final Fantasy VII director Yoshinori Kitase, Kitase mentioned, “… you must believe me when I say it would take a lot to happen,” when posed with the eternal question of a Final Fantasy VII remake.
Verendus then responded, “It’s happening. He’s obviously not going to give any indication as such though so it hardly matters until they’re ready to announce something. His comments make sense. It’s a huge project that will take a lot of effort, and demand a lot from him personally, in order to ensure the end result is something satisfactory.”
It really takes a whole lot of guts to believe what Kitase mentioned as being 100% possible, and Verendus’ reasoning too, has its fair share of flaws. Whatever it is, even if no remake is on its way, just play it on an emulator or bring out the old PlayStation for a trip down memory lane.
