FFVII Remake Rumor Crushed...Again

You know, I think I'm going to use the Cloud pic from "Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children" any time there's new evidence to support a Final Fantasy VII remake, and then use the Sephiroth pic when Square-Enix once again shoots it down.

It wasn't long ago when we heard that Square-Enix would announce a secret title in 2010; a game that "everyone has requested." This last bit turned out to be untrue and while it is true that we'll hear about a currently unknown game from S-E this year, it's not something "journalists and gamers have been begging for," or some such nonsense. So that revelation brought our heads down out of the clouds - again - and now, Tetsuya Nomura squashed any remaining hopes. According to JustPushStart citing the most recent issue of Famitsu magazine, Nomura says we simply shouldn't expect a FFVII remake any time soon. There's a big layout in the issue featuring Cloud Strife and there's mention of games he will appear in (cameo appearances), but beyond that, they don't seem to be entertaining any thoughts of a full-blown remake. Then again, maybe they're just denying it and biding their time for the huge unveiling later this year, when they totally bring the house down with the gargantuan announcement...

Yeah, that's the unrealistically optimistic side of me talking. But I'm relatively certain that I'll dig out the Cloud pic of "Advent Children" again at some point. Let's face it; this rumor is never gonna die out completely.

We might as well get used to the fact the SE doesn't care anything about it's customers and the people that purchase their games. Play your copy of FFVII or download the copy off the PSN. That is about all we are going to get.

Its not that they don't want to remake the game. They're just too busy with other projects.

As much as I hate what Square Enix's moron of a President is doing and taking the company, I don't think it's not making FFVII remake because it doesn't care for its customers.

But then again they wouldn't make a FFVII remake for the customers, they'd make it for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

They are essentially busy with other projects. But don't you guys remember Nomura sama clearly stating that we won't see many projects related with FFVII for a long time right after FFVII: Advent Children Complete came out. I don't have a link, but I do remember Ben provided an article for us on that.

So right after that I knew they weren't working on anything FFVII. So I don't see how the FFVII rumor even came up again after the whole "a game that "everyone has requested.""

But then again ignorance is bliss. =)

Or you could just plain forget.

That would be an absolutely AMAZING thing for SE to do! I'm kind of getting tired of these prequel things they're coming out with (i.e Birth By Sleep, 358/2 Days, and Coded). Let's move on SE, I'm tired of trying to imagine what the note could have possibly said at the end of KH2.
SE would earn back the respect it lost from the FFXIII going multiplat. It would get my respect back for sure.

Yeah you're right Ben, I think S-E is just stringing us along, this rumour will never really go away. Pretty soon it will be as big a joke as Duke Nukem.

I can see them doing a few VII spin offs maybe to appease us. As for a remake of the original, I'm still trying to decide if that's a good idea or not. As much as I\d like to see it, part of me feels that they'll just ruin it and they should leave well enough alone.

We won't see the FFVII remake release in a long time, not until V is remade and VI is in at least a remaking process.

Indeed. The rumor won't die out completely until square enix actually remake the game.

If a remake does happen, I just hope that they make it for playstation 3 only worldwide. A multiplatform remake of final fantasy VII is a definate no no.

If they do go ahead with a remake it then a big part of that will be in pleasing the fans, and in such a case I believe it would be more fitting to make it multi-platform. Heck, why not a PC release too?

It's not like they could sneakily cut out huge chunks of the game and no one will notice, is it?

Also like others have mentioned Squeenix would only be doing this for 2 reasons 1. please their fans and generate brand loyalty and 2. the insanely huge profits.

I expect FFVII is their trump card if things are really going down the pan. If Squeenix suddenly run into financial trouble they know exactly what to do to bring home the bacon.

when are you gunna learn ben... you should never, EVER say that a game is in production until you have SOLID evidence, they officially announce it, or its one of activisions games. im not criticising your journalism, but shit, let it go man! they will never make a ff7 remake, so just accept it and move on.

Ah, but do you see where you criticism is wrong here? Without Ben sniffing around for news of an FFVII remake & posting articles, we would of never found out that FFVII WILL be eventually remade.

This also proves how blind you are.

Well, I remember that article too... I dont know if Ben/Arnold used the exact words, "pretty much confirmed" I may be wrong..

Weather he did say this or not DOESNT MATTER. Who is going to assume that something that Ben says is definate anyway? No offense! Alot of big games are always being delayed off their release dates and their content can always be change.

We know that Ben is obsessed with a FFVII remake (sorry, has to be said) but booze, u just sound a bit argumentave and want to prove Ben wrong but i do agree that he should let it go and if it happens it happens :)

couldn't have came back to a better post like this one :) been gone for a while but let me get started!

"Let's face it; this rumor is never gonna die out completely." this is true.. but that's because one end there is evidence to make it seem and appear true and then on the other hand you have some of the evidence and the verbal "rumor crushes" of SE that just kinda make you say "$%^#$%^" I wonder though.. is this one of those things where if we stop thinking about it... it'll actually happen? or should we continue to bang on SE's doors and expect it to happen? continue asking until they give? or follow the saying "if you love something let it go, should it come back then it's real. if not then it was never meant to be"? i had to give scarecrow a thumbs up to his comment though because in a way he is absolutely right..

on a side note.. i remember that post wayyy back here on this site about the petition to remake the game.. what's the status of that petition? what ever happened to it?

I'm still conflicted about this. I think the original holds a certain charm that they won't recapture in a remake. Plus, Squares new "western" direction and their whoring with MS, they might screw it up even worse then I can imagine. So I guess no remake would be ok with me. I certainly wouldn't want Numora to sacrafice any of his creativity so they can sell it out to MS. If they can't make it exclusive to the PS3 then don't do it.

Besides all that, I don't like the English speaking Cloud or Sephiroth. The voices I hear in my head for them are much better then the monotone voice actors they used in Advent Children, KH and Dissidia.

well, if they keep it exclusive then they can keep the japanese voices on the bluray.

On another note, something is telling me that the delay on the remake is about Wada wants the game to be multiplatform because of microsoft's money while sony saying no, they probably have some rights on it, and Wada just trying to get sony to pay up.

In all honesty, I have never played FFVII... So, I have no say in this matter all that much. But, the only reason I have not, is because:
1.) They're hard to find
2.) They're still expensive when found (i.e Vintage Stock: $60)
And
3.) The graphics would kill my eyes.
I know the third one just sounds like an excuse, but can you blame me? Anyhow, a remake onto the PS3, I would DEFINATELY go buy, no matter what. It does go without saying, that a remake would definately SELL. I don't really see why they wouldn't, seeing as they're in for the money nowadays with FFXIII going multiplat. Well, let's just keep hoping and wait for this "Surprise unveiling" of SE.

I wonder whether the 'sticking' point on a FFVII remake might end up being Sony?

Remaking a game as special as FFVII or even FFVIII wouldbe an exensive undertaking, and a risky one. You would want to maximize your audience. Plus SE has Microsoft lurking at it's shoulder - figuratively speaking.

Wat if Sony owns some of the copyrights involved in FFVII or FFVIII? What if the contracts between Sony and SE for the original and/or PSN releases of the games contains language that allows Sony to forbid releasing the game on another platform?

Then Sony could be basically saying "Make it exclsive, or don't bother remaking it."

If that's the case, I can live with that. I would rather have the original games as is than a half-assed, gimped for 360 version.

So get over it, FFVII is not now or ever going to be remade, until hell freezes over.

only remake i would like to see SE do is a kingdom hearts remake.
ive never really liked RPGs, they normally bore the crap out of me but i really enjoyed kingdom hearts.
maybe its because i love the characters in there, ive always been and always will be a massive donald duck fan.
id love to see some of the loony tunes games get a remake too like loony tunes sheep raider or lost in time.
those were fantastic games, i miss hard puzzle based games like sheep raider.
stealing sheep and making sure you dont wake the watchdog one of the best games on ps1.
who needs a ps3 when you have a ps1?

I can't tell the future but I still believe this game will be remade... Perhaps S-E didn't plan for this but it sure is funny how almost every Playstation owner knows about FF7 now. If it ever gets released they might wonder to their self what was all the fuzz about so they purchase the game. I'm not sure but I don't think remakes do all that good so it would only seem like common sense to make an uproar about the game before it's been confirmed.

to me, i am NOT up to a remake of this game, let it live in the past, it is hard to imagine to play a game with identical plot; on the other hand, i am all up to a future game, anything that innovative, original, deep and addictive, i.e. like demon souls, infamous, last guardian; so please create original games like those, Square Soft.( thats the only legit name i embrace and u know wut i mean for this )

Honestly, I wouldn't discredit a remake. Though, the more I think about it the more I wonder where it would go. It would seem that the PS3 is the obvious choice... but why not the PSP? Sure, maybe not everyone owns one of the things, but I do... and just thinking about VII remade with the same graphics as VII: CC (both in-game and CG) makes me wonder if that wouldn't be an honest medium. I'd imagine it'd take quite a chunk of green to completely convert a game like that to the PS3's performance capabilities. So why not AT LEAST strongly consider the PSP? Don't get me wrong people, I'd still prefer the possible remake on the PS3... but if making it on the PSP could make it that much more of a reality...?

Am a big fan of remakes, whats important is exactly how they plan on remaking. Sometimes they should just update the graphics on a game instead of changing anything else on it.

Most games are great just the way they are, but I often wonder what some of my favorite old-shool games would look with some bad@ss new generation graphics.Some examples would be Secrete of Mana,Chrono Triger,Castlevania,Kid Icarus,Russian Attack. What i mean is just update graphics don't mess with anything else.

A ff7 remake would be great but i would much rather see a sequel of past Square games , excluding KH3 .

A new FFT ( handheld sequel and the new Vandal Hearth graphics excluded ) being in top of my list .Another Parasite Eve or Vagrant story game would be great too ( unlikely but i can always hope).

Lets not forget what happened at the end of Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII. The very last cgi you see Genesis, and with his one-wing. So, a FF7 remake "will not happen for the time being" but, imo there will be more FF7 games to come to finish the story.

MY only comment is...

SE has took a PS exclusive and took the fun of what it was out of it for Xbox, and they won't even bring the dream's that we had back. Honestly in my opinion, FUCK them.

They where beast mode back then and they where a company I was loyal too, but not anymore. They lost me.

I think they should remake Final Fantasy VIII instead.

@Radiohead

I think VIII is compltely perfect the way it is. The graphics are really good for a PS game and it's just beautiful as is. Sure, a remake would be AWESOME, but if not, I'm not complaining! VIII is my very first FF that I played and it is definately one of my favorites.

Never played ff7 and I probably never will. If anybody is to remake anything or start a sequel to a game left for dead, I would want to see Azure Dreams 2 from Konami or an Azure Dreams 1 remake. That would be much appreciated. Kingdom Hearts 3 from SE would be nice too. Exclusive though. Otherwise, don't bother. Please. If you resurrect something, bring it back looking lively, not half-dead.

It will happen eventually. SE loves money, and a remake of FFVII would be a instant millions seller. Mark my words, SE would have to be insane to write off the revenues it would rake in. I wouldn't doubt that it would recoup all its own development costs on lunch day and then some.

Lets just look at it this way, if they remake it...they'll just fu** it up. Best way to put it until they decide to make it and prove otherwise :)
