Slim PS3 news: Final Fantasy VII HD Remake? Impossible

Or at least improbable.
In an interview largely about Final Fantasy XIII, Yoshinori Kitase, the game’s producer stated that it was “unrealistic” to remake Final Fantasy VII with the glorious HD graphics of FFXIII.
Kitase explained that Final Fantasy XIII took three plus years to make, and due to the scope, Final Fantasy VII would take three to four times as long to create. That means in order to recreate a version of FFVII with the production values of FFXIII would be a decade, or so, long process. Unrealistic, seems to be an appropriate word.
It’s not that the interest isn’t there. Kitase mentioned that if the facilities and team existed that could crank out FFVII HD in a year, they’d certainly be into doing it.
So here’s hoping for a shift in the way animation is done, or some other magical tech falls from the sky that would make productions of a Final Fantasy game faster. Until such time, keep watching Advent Children… it’s as close as we are going to get to seeing Cloud and Co. in 1080p anytime soon.
