Final Fantasy VII Cast Of Characters

Final Fantasy VII fans have been clamoring for Square Enix to remake the game. While gamers have had to make due with spin-off sequels, prequels, phone games, anime, and movies about FFVII, it's not quite the same. There are millions of gamers that would kill for a remake. According to Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama, the idea has been discussed, but not officially acted on. Through a translator they told VG247:

"There’s no official project that’s up and running for a remake of Final Fantasy VII at this point. Both Toriyama-san and Kitase-san were involved in the development of the game, however, and it holds a special place in their hearts. They do talk about it on a personal level, like, ‘If we did it it would be like this or like that.’

So, they do talk about it, but there’s no official project yet. But there’s that PSN release that just came out, so if you could play that for the time being, it should be fun."

A few things here -- first of all, I don't believe them. I think they're trying to be cute and coy. A Final Fantasy VII remake would be enormous and sell millions of copies. Unless Square has suddenly developed an aversion to money, I refuse to believe this project isn't being planned. From a business standpoint, it would be stupid not to do it.

Secondly, I'm surprised it hasn't come out yet. It seemed like a brilliant idea for 2007, when the original game celebrated its ten-year anniversary. A lot of gamers would have been happy to give up the PS2 adventures of Vincent Valentine and the mobile adventures of The Turks if it meant devoting resources to an FFVII anniversary project. Oh well, maybe it'll come out for the game's 15-year anniversary?

Any thoughts on what Kitase and Toriyama had to say? Do you believe that "there's no official project yet"? Or is Square Enix simply waiting to surprise gamers?
