Here, we have a handful of straws. You're welcome to grasp at some, should you feel the need.
Us at GamesCom: Will we ever see a remake of Final Fantasy VII?
FFXIII's Yoshi Kitase and Motomu Toriyama, speaking through a translator: There's no official project that's up and running for a remake of Final Fantasy VII at this point. Both Toriyama-san and Kitase-san were involved in the development of the game, however, and it holds a special place in their hearts. They do talk about it on a personal level, like, 'If we did it it would be like this or like that.'
So, they do talk about it, but there's no official project yet. But there's that PSN release that just came out, so if you could play that for the time being, it should be fun.
So there you go. Fin. For now.
