Final Fantasy VII: PS3 remake is ‘unrealistic’, 10-14 years to make – Kitase

By Alan Ng - Feb 22, 2010

The Final Fantasy VII PS3 Remake saga continues folks. Square’s Yoshinori Kitase has now stated in a recent interview that a remake is ‘unrealistic’, even though he only revealed last week that he was ‘very interested’ in making the game.

It doesnt get any better for fans hoping of a remake either, as according to this report from Eurogamer, Kitase believes that it could take 3 or 4 times the amount spent on Final Fantasy XIII (3.5 years) to make the remake.

The key portion of his interview reads: ”If we were to recreate Final Fantasy VII with the same level of graphical detail as you see in Final Fantasy XIII, we’d imagine that that would take as much as three or four times longer than the three-and-a-half-years it has taken to put this Final Fantasy together!”

That works out around 10-14 years! Quite a bombshell there from Kitase we reckon. What do you make of his ‘latest’ comments? Seems to us that he has something different to say every week.
