Square Enix talks Final Fantasy 7 remake, Kingdom Hearts III, and Versus XIII

Where is Kingdom Hearts III? Where the heck is Versus XIII? And why haven’t we seen a Final Fantasy VII remake? Some answers you may like. Others you most definitely will not. But there are answers.

The story is too old to be commented.

" “I’m on the fence about it,” said a developer who wanted to keep a low profile. “I’d love to see it, but at the same time I wouldn’t. It wouldn’t be the same, and wouldn’t have the same magic. It’d have voices, and what about the cross dressing part? And what about Aerith’s death? Would we see that in full next-gen graphics? I don’t think I could handle that.”

“I honestly don’t believe that people truly understand Final Fantasy VII. I think if they went back and played it today, they wouldn’t appreciate it nearly as much as they did before,” said another dev. “That might not be the case for all Final Fantasy VII fans, but I think a lot of people need to let it go and accept it for what it is.”

agree

That could be said for any game including a remake of metal gear solid.

I mean the truth is ff7 is their biggest final fantasy, even to this day. Heck it has movies, mangas, seperate side stories made and publish by the same people who claim it should be put to rest.

Its like whenever they need to make some quick money something final fantasy 7 related is mention or put out.

Cant and wont remake seven but dont mind remaking a simpler ff game in ff10?lol

Please, these guys are just being lazy if you ask me.

Had I have a billion dollars I wouldnt think twice of investing half of that in remaking this masterpeace.

There arent any games that big or good, more like short games with pieces of dlc attach to them.

And another thing, kingdom hearts 3 should have been out like 2 years ago.

Instead you get a sequel to a short ff game in ff13 and a bunch of resourses chasing the easy money in short coming mmos like ff14.

These guys have (in my opinion) lost their touch a while ago.

Yes I agree, I would buy that day one, no questions asked. Though it better have KH1 (Remastered controls, because honestly, no one likes the L's and R's to move the camera), KH2, and Birth by Sleep. They also BETTER BE FINAL MIXES!

As for their response to Kingdom Hearts III... *ahem* SCREW YOU SQUARE! 6 years!? We've already been waiting for like 6+ years since KH2!

im dying for kingdom hearts 3 in hd, no portable on a console

are you serious square i guess you dont want peoples money than cause best believe you have sucked this gen so give us something that will make you a valuable developer again

Capt-FuzzyPants2099d ago

Yeah I would love seeing that. I've beaten KH about 7 times so playing through something a little different would be nice. Same with KH2 even though I've only beaten that one like 4 times I would still loveit in HD and getting to fight the extra bosses in the Final Mixes.

Snookies122099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

I have Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix+, the game is amazing with all the extra bosses and stuff, it makes an awesome game even better. You get to fight Terra, who is soooo fun and challenging, every Organization XIII member including Roxas and Xemnas in special hard battles. You also get new equipment, a new limit form (Sora in remade KH1 clothing) and even new cutscenes, one in particular is before fighting No Heart at the end of the game, where Sora and Riku talk after jumping off the flying thing. XD

This has to be the most pointless interview ever. It was like:

when FFvs coming out?
-soon

What about Kingdom Hearts 3?
-It's gonna come out in several years.

You know that people has been asking for FFVII to be remade, what do you think?
-I think that if you go and play the game now you'll see that it wasn't as good as people remember it to be.

Majin-vegeta2099d ago

God dammit i want my FF VS XIII.

DigitalRaptor2099d ago

Don't we all?

Once XIII-2 is out in 2 weeks, Square Enix need to just put together an exciting "re-announcement" press release for Versus XIII, with a new story trailer showing epic gameplay and cutscenes. And a release date.

People just need to see some indication that it's on track to get excited again, and I'm sure it's well on its way. Do it square!

swishersweets200312099d ago

wow. these guys must be the laziest game developers in the history of mankind. Another few more years? are they kidding me?

FFVII wouldnt need a whole new overhaul just give it a nice lil hd buff over give it ps2 graphics as far as i care keep the game the same just give it a small polish and leave it at that.
Remaking it to look like ff13 yeah it probably would ruin it.

coryok2099d ago

its a lie lol, look at the quotes "im on the fence about it" ya, sure you are, developer.

such a saying would make no sense to japanese speaking developers.

this guys just making shit up for hits

LoLZoRz2099d ago

"FF Versus is coming out in a few years"

goddammit!

NeXXXuS2099d ago

I hope we all get to live past 2012 to see that happen D:

LoLZoRz2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

I was at least hoping for late 2012 or 2013.

but now, when they said this, it's probably gonna come out in 2014 or even 2015.

damn that's long.

ˇˇyeah, this FF seems like it's gonna be the best one. great characters, world maps and airships in HD era, love the combat system etc.

NeXXXuS2099d ago

As long as they work the hell out of the game, I'm fine with that. I really think they're trying to put as much into this game as possible.

Styxoric2099d ago

This struck me as well, so i checked the date of the article, which reads Jan 17th 2012.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUU-

I don't know, i just don't know anymore.....
