3rd Birthday and Final Fantasy XIII Agito director Hajime Tabata has stated that if he were to work on a 3DS title, he’d most likely remake the Final Fantasy VII mobile phone spin-off Before Crisis, complete with a snazzy overhaul.
“If I were to make something for 3DS, I suppose it would be a remake of Before Crisis Final Fantasy VII,” he says. “I’d redo the scenario structure and game design for the 3DS. I think I’d like to make an action RPG BCFF7 where a large number of Turks players play simultaneously.”
Bear in mind that Tabata was merely speaking from a personal stance and doesn’t represent Square Enix in that statement, but nevertheless it’s a cool pitch. I never got to play Before Crisis as I wasn’t into mobile gaming back when it was out, but I’d love to give it a spin on the 3DS.
How about you? Would Before Crisis be tempting? Maybe you should go tell Square Enix.
