Nomura: No Plans For Final Fantasy VII Remake... Yet

Written by Darryl — 23 Jan 2010

Fans have long been craving a remake of Final Fantasy VII, but in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, Tetsuya Nomura, the man behind the iconic character designs in FFVII, has again dashed their hopes.

Speaking on the subject, he said that there are as yet no plans for a Final Fantasy VII remake, but he hopes that Cloud Strife, will be able to make more cameo appearances in other Square Enix properties. He most recently appeared in Dissidia: Final Fantasy.

This will come as a disappointment to some, as Tetsuya recently announced that he was working on a franchise that would "give fans what they want" - it doesn't really leave many other options for what that game can be. He's also working on completing Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which he stated should see a lot more information revealed at this year's E3.
