Five Square Enix games that deserve a re-release alongside Final Fantasy VII

"July 4th was a day of celebration for many, between the numerous cookouts, the Firework displays and the get-togethers with family and friends to celebrate our independence. But it was also a great day for Square Enix fans, as the company confirmed that its long-standing role-playing classic Final Fantasy VII was being re-released for PC…news that fans felt was worth celebrating.

"So, with that, we have to ask the question…are there any more Square Enix games that deserve a re-release? Absolutely. With role-playing games doing big business these days – and less money going into a reissue than an all-new multi-million dollar project – it just makes sense, right? And seeing as how Kingdom Hearts is getting a possible second chance in HD format soon (we’re still waiting for confirmation), this could just be the beginning.

"Here now is a list of titles we’d love to see re-released, either for PC or console. C’mon, Square…don’t leave us hanging," writes GameZone. (Brave Fencer Musashi, Einhander, Final Fantasy VII, PC, PS3, Secret of Mana, Square Enix, Xbox 360)

Brave Fencer Musashi definitely, happy to see that on the list. Also Secret of Mana another great choice.

Thought FFVI would be there. They should also rename the title to Squaresoft games.

FFVI is on PSN and Virtual Console. Secret of Mana is also on Virtual Console as well as iOS. What kind of a 'rerelease' are they going to get that those don't qualify as?

Do you want them to create a native PC version of games you can easily emulate on 15 year old hardware?

An HD Einhander would be so very awesome!!!!! That game is one of the best space shooters ever made. The gameplay was fun, frantic, and the music was kick ass. This game is on the PS store in i think Japan....why is it not here yet!!

Bushido Blade is another game i would like to see a reboot.

BRAVE FENCER MUSASHI is a good choice.
For me i'll add an HD remaster of Parasite Eve 2, one of the best Squaresoft games ever made!

Oh yeah, and Dragon Quest VIII HD!!!
