Ever since E3 2005 with that little 'tech demo for PS3', fans have been screaming at Square-Enix to give them what they want, a remake of the most popular title in the series, Final Fantasy VII. It was shortly announced after the tech demo that it was NOT a game in development. If they did remake FF7 on the PS3, it would take them 5 years to do, which would take away from other projects. The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII has seen the prequel title, Crisis Core, the sequels Dirge of Cerberus and the movie Advent Children thus far in the States. There was another prequel title in Japan known as Before Crisis on Mobile. It has been stated that this Compilation, which expands the FF7 brand, will end on the original title's twenty year anniversary, in other words in 2017. Currently we are in 2008 with no new additions this year, the earliest would be next year 2009. With the announcement at E3 2008 that Final Fantasy XIII will also be released on the XBOX 360 instead of a PS3 exclusive here in the States, new 'numbered' fantasies are no longer exclusive to Playstation consoles. In a recent press conference, Wada stated that Square-Enix is not exclusive to any console and will make the most profitable games for each console, thus why FF13 will also be on 360. For a faithful PS3 remake of FF7 to happen it would take a good chunk of time to produce, thus taking away time and resources from other projects. If developed for the Wii, an easy piece of hardware to work with, the game would take considerably less time. Crisis Core on the PSP did a fine job graphical from which the Wii can easily surpass and pre-rendered Advent cutscenes are no problem. It won't look as good as the PS3 or XBOX 360, but it would look far better than the PSOne original. That carnival-circus center in FF7 which served as a break of sorts to play mini-games. Well using the Wii with the Wii remote and Wii MotionPlus, it would be like Wii Sports contained within Final Fantasy VII, but instead of using Miis, you would use characters from your party like Cloud or Barrett. The motorcycle chase and other portions of the game like that would be done justice with the Wii. Motorcycle chase, think Mach Bike reborn on the Wii. FF3 on DS, FF4 on DS, FF5 will be on DS, FF6 likely on DS, FF7 on Wii? Finally, Square owes Nintendo. Back when before the launch of the Nintendo 64, Square produced a 3-D playable demo of Final Fantasy VI on the N64. Many thought, just as with the PS3 FF7 demo, that FF6 was going to be remade in 3-D on the N64. Well Square actually planned it, but those cartridges were a challenge to work with, so Square turned to the lesser console (technology wise), the PSOne and created FF7. After six great titles, only 3 in the U.S., Square seemingly left Nintendo behind and took Final Fantasy to Sony and the Playstation. The N64 saw no Final Fantasy title. The Gamecube saw one, FF Crystal Chronicles. Its about time that Square (now Square-Enix) finally fulfilled their promise and bring the first 3-D Final Fantasy title to the Nintendo home console and bring FF7 to the Wii. FF7: Crisis Core on PSP, I think Wii can do better. Top: In-game cutscene Bottom: Pre-rendered cutscene The N64 Fantasy that never was.
