Some disappointing news for fans of the classic Final Fantasy VII game now, as producer Yoshinori Kitase has hinted that a remake of the game won’t be happening. We have the main reasons why.
As reported from VG247, the main problem in giving the game an HD makeover is that the sheer size of Final Fantasy VII and the many towns contained in the game, would prove to be a difficult task, when trying to recreate the graphics in HD.
A direct quote from Kitase reads: “It is very hard to make games on PlayStation 3 in the same style as the games in that era had. Making graphics will take enormous time.”
Sounds like a bit of an excuse to us. Surely the geniuses at Square-Enix could come up with a solution to create like-for-like towns in HD graphics.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you feel this is a bit of a cop-out by Square or not?
