FFVII Remake Query Answered Yet Again
During an interview at last week's GamesCom convention in Cologne, Germany, interviewers from VG247 asked Square Enix's Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase if Final Fantasy VII will ever be remade. Their reply, through a translator, was that they talk about such a project on a personal level, but there is no remake officially in the works. They also noted that fans can play the original FFVII on PSN for the time being.
