Square-Enix – A Final Fantasy VII Remake Would End the Franchise

Posted on June 26, 2012 AT 04:33am

Square-Enix CEO Yoichi Wada has said that the company won’t make a remake of the much-loved Final Fantasy VII until it makes a game better than the PS1 classic.

Wada made this comment during a Q&A session at the company’s annual shareholder’s briefing. He was asked about the much requested remake and, according to Andriasang, responded by saying, “We’ll make a Final Fantasy VII remake once we’ve made a Final Fantasy game that exceeds the quality of FFVII.”

He basically admitted that every major sequel and spin-off created since have failed to surpass Final Fantasy VII, which most people already know to be true anyway. Wada added that the development team would love to remake the game, but doing so would likely put an end to the franchise.

I’m not sure if I’m prepared to lose one of my most beloved franchises just to get a remake of my favorite game of all time, it’s a tough decision.

Would you be willing to lose the entire Final Fantasy franchise just to get an FFVII remake?
