Cloud: New FFVII Compilation Title "Coming Soon"?

'sigh' We really hate to do this, because we despise any Final Fantasy-related disappointment more than anyone, but Square-Enix - and the rumor mongers around the Internet - always seem to rekindle a spark of hope somewhere deep within our ravenous, Cloud-hungry souls.

This picture here popped up online a few days ago, and it's causing quite the stir. Clearly, that's a picture of Cloud and the words included are, "Coming Soon." We're not even going to entertain the possibility of a Final Fantasy VII remake (we're done with that), but Final Fantasy Union believes it could be a new installment in the FFVII Compilation series. Given the history, which you can read more about if you so choose, there is the possibility Square-Enix is preparing a new title that takes place after the events of Dirge of Cerberus. This probably isn't what fans of the long-running role-playing franchise want to hear, though, considering that PS2 game represented a low point in the critically acclaimed and widely adored FF franchise. Of course, they're not willing to dismiss the idea of a sequel to FFVII, but again, we've given up all hope of that particular option, too. Thing is, every time we see something with Cloud, it turns out to be a movie or just some new handheld game. Yippee.

Don't get us wrong; Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII was fantastic, but in our humble opinion, this is one series that absolutely needs a next-gen console to truly shine. If Cloud is involved, great, but don't toy with our heads again, S-E. Not again.
