There has been talk of updated Final Fantasy VII games since the original reached western shores back in 1997. The RPG was a massive success, a blow to Nintendo and a triumph for Sony. Everyone bought it and a new breed of SquareSoft fans were born.
Although we’ve seen four subsequent games and several spin-offs, a true update, set in the Final Fantasy VII universe, is yet to be delivered, in spite of endless rumouring that a new game is underway.
Well today a fresh rumour is awaiting the Internet grindstone, with respected US magazine Electronic Gaming Monthly claiming that there is indeed a new FFVII in the works at Square Enix. And for PlayStation 3, no less.
EGM offers no source for its rumour claim, though this would seem an easy fix to the dual problem of delivering an early-lifecycle RPG to the PlayStation 3 and sating the desire for more FFVII.
Of course, we’ll update you as soon as we can and remember to let us know your thoughts in the forum space below.
