Square Enix's President Will "Explore the Possibility" of an FFVII Remake
The Final Fantasy VII remake teases have made their way to the top. During a Siliconera interview, Square Enix's President and CEO Yoichi Wada said, "Right now we don’t have a clear direction, but many fans have requested we remake Final Fantasy VII. 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."
This comes not long after FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama (who was not on the original FFVII staff [ETA: Dawn Treader has pointed out that this isn't true. He was one of the Event Planners for the Field Section, as seen in the end credits. Thanks, DT!]) stated that if he could remake any game, it would be FFVII.
Special thanks to Dawn Treader for posting this news in the Forums.
