Kitase “really interested” in FFVII remake

Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase has said in an interview he would be interested in a “more complete form of Final Fantasy VII.”

Yep, it could only be the remake.

Speaking to GT, he said:

“I’m really interested to see this more complete form of Final Fantasy VII portrayed more realistically with the voice and animation and all the suttle expressions there.

“I’d be interested to see that and to make that, it would be a great experience. I don’t get tired of people asking that question, so I’ll continue to answer my thoughts as long as people keep asking.”

That’s despite comments made a while back by him and FFXIII director Motomu Toriyama, saying the game’s “style” was too hard to translate from the old PS1 days.

Comments from FF Versus XIII director Tetsuya Nomura weren’t too promising either, saying there wouldn’t be a remake anytime soon.

Get the video interview below. Kitase’s comments come near the end.

FFXIII is out on March 9.

  • Cloud's horribly impractical sword has been created in the real world

    In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud carries around like a really big sword. It’s as big as he is really, and I’ve often wondered how he could even hold the thing. Now, the guy who made a real-life version of the Minecraft diamond sword built this Buster sword, and it is completely ridiculous. Video inside.
