If Hollywood can remake “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “King Kong,” why shouldn’t Square Enix be open to updating “Final Fantasy VII”? Afterall, they’ve already polished up “Final Fantasy” and “Final Fantasy II” for the iPhone. Well, it turns out that they may be open to remastering “VII,” too, even if they haven’t picked out a platform.
“Right now we don’t have a clear direction, but many fans have requested we remake ’Final Fantasy VII,'” Square Enix president and CEO Yoichi Wada told Siliconera. “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.”
That means we may see it for PlayStation 3, the PlayStation Portable, or who knows, maybe even in 3-D. I’d love to know what it would take to port a game like over to Sony’s new PS3 3-D settings meant to take advantage of 3-D TV’s this summer, and “FFVII” could be a worthy candidate to experiment on. If it’s not a PS3 remake, I’m not sure I’d see the point, though. The game just doesn’t fit elsewhere in my mind, but they could show a demo six months from now and surprise me.
