Final Fantasy VII remake not a priority

Bad news for Final Fantasy VII fans that want a remake of the original. In an interview in the Japanese magazine Famitsu character designer Tetsuya Nomura said that a remake of Final Fantasy has no priority.


There are a lot of people who want a remake of Final Fantasy VII. However, new titles take precedence. We work our hardest to make something that might be even better than Final Fantasy VII.

Further he said that Yoshinori Kitase is the future of the series and the new Final Fantasy must overcome the Final Fantasy of the past.
