FFVII remake rumors debunked
In an interview with Japan’s monthly Dorimaga gaming publication, character designer Tetsuya Nomura said:
“It appears that there are often overseas rumors like ‘Are you currently developing a VII remake?’ My apologies, but we’re absolutely not making [such a game].”
That sounded like a firm no but Yoshinori Kitase overall director of the FFVII series, followed up with:
However, when we ask the staff who are making FFXIII why they entered the company, there are many people who say, ‘I’m an FFVII fan, I also want to do a remake.'”
To this, Nomura added, “We of course know ourselves what the fans want so we’d like to continue thinking up a variety of things. As long as there are people who want to make it and people who are waiting for it, we don’t want to proclaim ‘the end.'”
The way I see a FFVII remake as of right now is not being developed. But fans want this remake bad (myself included) so eventually a remake is somewhere in the foreseeable future. Like Nomura said, as longs as fans want it and people want to make it, its not the end just yet.
