Perhaps the biggest remake request for any game ever made, FFVII is often rumored to be in development. Many people still play through and discuss this old PSOne game today. The remake rumor was fueled even more with the early PS3 FFVII tech demo shown at E3 in 2005.


On August 2-3, Square Enix will have a special conference to discuss its future games and upcoming FFVII Advent Children Blu-ray movie transfer. 1up interviewed producers from SE, and in it they mentioned this:

Quote:
1UP: Last week, Final Fantasy Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura said that he's hard at work adding new scenes to the FFVII: Advent Children Complete Blu-ray release. Can you give us any update on that project?

SH: You can look forward to the upcoming invite-only fan event DKS3713 [taking place in Tokyo on August 2 and 3], where we'll have a major announcement that will shock the fans in attendance.

Many people are thinking that this will be an announcement of a remake, but like anything else we won't know until it's official.

I was hoping for this announcement at E3 to counter the loss of exclusivity of FFXIII. At the very least, they could release the original as a PSN download.


They've always seemed so eager to cash in on this particular installment with movies, spin-offs, etc. It's always baffled me as to why they aren't just as eager to cash in on it via a remake or a re-release of the original. I haven't done much research on it, so perhaps they have good reasons.


At any rate, I bet we all end up disappointed come August 2nd.

It's not my favorite in the series by a long shot, and we've been hearing these rumblings for the past 3 years now...but I'd love to see this finally come to pass, though I'm with danforth--all these "big, shocking" announcements usually wind up being grossly disappointing.

Yeah, like


"No English version FFXIII for the PS3"


Certainly that would be shocking.

It might be shined up to be a PSN download and UMD disc for the PSP. That's my guess.

Actually, given the way Square has been going lately, it'll probably just be the original as a PSN download for PS3 and PSP.

This game is over 10 years old. In July of 1998, I was doing contract work in Minneapolis, spending every night in a hotel room. I bought FF7 for the PC to while away the time. And the PC release came later than the PS1 release.


Best Game Ever.


But I really doubt there will such an announcement. I mean, seriously. If its legit, why not announce it at e3? However, conspiracy theorists might argue SE received compensation to delay such an announcement.

Why compete for E3 news in America when they have their own company's conference to announce it in Japan?

There have been rumors of a FFVII remake since the days when PS2 was a brand new system. At this point I can see it being done for PSN download (which would certainly be well received), but I do not think a PS3 disk based version is coming.

That's right. I didnt get it till the PC release because I was a SEGA gamer and didnt own a Sony console. Forgot about that 2 year head start the PS got with it.
