Final Fantasy VII Remake To Take Decades, Still A Possibility

May 31, 2010, By Gerard "Danger" Cabarse

Final Fantasy VII has taken the crown as the most popular installment to the Final Fantasy series. When Square-Enix released a tech demo of the game to show off the power of the Playstation 3, fans of the game went into a frenzy of a possibility that it might happen. However, if it does happen, it won’t be in a timely fashion.

According  to a tweet from Yoichi Wada, the Square Enix president, it would take ten times as long as it took FFXIII to be developed to make FFVII into something more like FFXII.

Let’s see… FFXIII was developed in 3-4 years, so ten times that would be about… 30 to 40 years?!

While it is understandable that it would take sometime to redo an entire graphics engine, update the battle system, design towns, program NPCs, etc, etc…

Would FFVII still be relevant that far in the future?
