FFVII for NGP rumour looks suspiciously like complete bollocks

What is apparently an email from Square Enix to potential translators for an NGP remake of Final Fantasy VII is doing the rounds. Read it and weep.

The email can be found on a cached Gawker forum post page (thanks rrw). Just to be clear, this has nothing to do with either Gawker or Kotaku. It’s a community member posting the image. We’ve added it for you below.

The product is apparently called Final Fantasy VII – Enhanced Edition, and promised new graphics, an “endless world” and a rehash on FFXIII’s battle system.

Before you get too excited, the reaction we just got from an SE PR rep on the phone suggests, to put it mildly, that this may not be legit.

Other giveaways include the word “headquartes”.

We’re waiting for official comment.
