Top Final Fantasy designer Tetsuya Nomura has rebuked fans of the series hoping for a PS3 remake of Final Fantasy VII, telling them he thinks the project won’t happen and that they should count themselves lucky if Cloud is recycled as a guest character in future titles.
Rumours of a remake of Final Fantasy VII, considered by many to be the highpoint of the series and by far the best selling, have long circulated, but all have been denied despite Square Enix going so far as to release a tech demo teaser featuring such a remake:
Now Tetsuya Nomura, famed as the character designer who projected the series to fame, scotches hopes of such a remake:
“There’s always talk of a FF7 remake amongst fans, and many seem to be looking forward to one, but I don’t think one will be realised.
But maybe Cloud will crop up in other titles as a guest character? You never know.”
Square Enix, attending to the wishes of fans as ever.
