But where is Final Fantasy Versus XIII?

Tetsuya Nomura Ignores FF Versus XIII, Debunks FFVII Remake
Japanese magazine Famitsu has written a lovely retrospective of Final Fantasy VII, which is 15 years old. Tetsuya Nomura, who worked as a character designer for the game, was asked about his experience and whether a much-anticipated remake will happen soon. He said no.

While he admitted that there was a huge demand for a high-definition re-imagination of the PlayStation classic, he said that the focus for Square Enix was on making new titles in the franchise - and to make these match or even top Final Fantasy VII. It's not that we don't have faith, but we wish the team the best of luck in achieving that.

It's nice that Nomura-san is spending time talking about this and Kingdom Hearts when he could be working on Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which is now at least six years in development. A guy's gotta have a break, sometimes.

At the Final Fantasy music concert held at the Royal Albert Hall, the conductor said "we hope to be back next year, please send through ideas of what we should do when we come back for Squares 25th Birthday!" a loud shout from the back said "Re release FFVII!" we all cheered!
