Square Enix CEO Comments On Final Fantasy VII Remake // Siliconera
It will be a tough challenge after the epic FFXIII to remake a game made for a more primitive console.
I suppose Square would have to tread a fine balance between retaining the original story and adapting the whole experience to make full use of the PS3 (and maybe Xbox)power and capacity.
There would have to be some serious work put into creating a FFVII capable of meeting current standards and expectations.
After 13, it would be foolish of square to release 7 as a straight polished remake of the original plot, characters and battles. I suspect the accountants would want to pull in people new to the game and give die-hards something extra.
