Final Fantasy VII Remake Confirmed?
Nerdtrek.com is making some wild allegations. According to the website, the long awaited remake of SquareEnix’s (previously Squaresoft) most famous Final Fantasy title, FF7 has been confirmed. Too bad no one else got the memo.
Fans have been pleading for a Final Fantasy VII-2 for years now. According to Nerdtrek.com, last year Yoichi Wada, the president of Square Enix, made the reboot plans official. The rumor asserts that Final Fantasy VII: Jenova’s Rebirth is slated for a 4th quarter 2012 release. While Wada has stated on record that the company has “Heard its fans’ pleadings to remake FFVII”, there has been no official confirmation about a FF7 game in development.
As a previous Final Fantasy fan I would love to experience the iconic RPG in an updated fashion. The thought of reliving one of my favorite games, completely refurbished with modern technology is tempting but very unlikely. A multitude of sources have produced news pertaining to the production of a FF7 remake in the past, all lacking validity unfortunately.
With SquareEnix’s immense decline in profits, recent lackluster games, and over saturation of sequels, I don’t believe the company could accurately produce a FF7 sequel even if they tried. Fans are critical. If Square attempted a remake and failed, results would be catastrophic for their fan-base, something SquareEnix can’t afford.
