Don’t expect a Final Fantasy VII remake anytime soon

Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura has told fans not to look forward to a Final Fantasy VII remake any time in the near future, but stated instead that main character Cloud Strife has plenty of cameos and whoring left in him.

“Fans are looking forward to an oft-rumored remake of FFVII, but I don’t believe this will happen for the time being,” admits Nomura. “However, it’s possible that he will appear in other titles as a guest character.”

His comments came as part of Famitsu‘s serial look at popular videogame characters, which this week focuses on the spiky-haired star of Final Fantasy VII. If you want more of Cloud, then it seems you won’t get him in an HD remake of his very own game. Some of you will be disappointed by this, some of you relieved.

Which are you? Do you want a remake of VII, or do you believe the original has stood the test of time long enough to be left alone as a classic?
