Rumor has it that there just may be a remake of the game on the 3DS! Yes, let the "Booing" commence. This comes from an anonymous source:
"…a remix version of the 7th game of a famous (J)RPG series, and will sell half year later of a spin-off game of the series."
Not sure how a 3D remake of FF VII would do much for the game though. They'd have to completely restyle the gameplay scenes to make it look too good. The cutscenes can be completely redone in CGI, and imagine how it would look as Cloud looks upon Shinra in the distance. Wow-factor now that I think of it. Yeah, this would be really great on the handheld. Imagine playing the motor-cycle mini-game using the gyroscope to move around, while you hit the shoulder buttons to swing Clouds sword, or using the touch screen to defend Fort Condor. The possibilities are endless! I want this now!
Any retro gaming geeks out there know, the game was originally supposed to be on the Nintendo 64, but since Nintendo decided to stick with cartridges, and the Disk Drive never made it out of Japan, it wasn't happening, so they wen t with Sony's system, (which was originally owned by Nintendo, til they stole it) which allowed for more storage on multiple discs. This could just be Square's method of giving back to the fans who were left out. The FF III and IV remakes were excellent back on the 3DS were excellent, so why not? Let me know what you think.
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving!
