Final Fantasy VII Director Yoshinori Kitase recently touched on the possibility of remaking the RPG classic for the PlayStation 3, stating that fans could “expect the probability of something spontaneous happening at some point.”
Kitase commented that if a remake were to transpire, it would have to include all of the core team members from the original 1997 PlayStation classic; something which isn’t possible right now due each individual’s commitments to other projects.
"My feelings are that if a remake were to work well then all the core members of the original team must be reassembled, all the artists and designers,” said Kitase.
“The problem is that, although all of us have an idea of what a remake should be and how to do it, organising such a thing right now is logistically very difficult. All the different members are now involved in very new, very large projects like Final Fantasy XIII and those projects are going to take a while.”
Despite this, he refused to completely rule out the chances of a remake on PS3, adding, “Maybe, when all those games are finished then we can look at doing something like that.”
”Of course, that said we came up with the idea for Crisis Core in just two days. It was a case of 'this is what we want to do, so let's do it'. So, you can definitely expect the probability of something spontaneous happening at some point, but it's hard to predict."
Stay tuned for further developments as they break.

With all this Support for remaking the game you'd think that they would. 9.8 Million Copies were sold when FF7 came out, It also has become the Icon of RPG gaming. If the remake is done right, meaning sticking to the Original Music Scores, Great Voice overs, and Keeping the story in all of it's originallity in tact, then it would be The Most Awesome Game in Modern times! As it was put in an earlier comment, If they build it, I will Buy it :).

I do think that the game should be like the original, but I think some things could be added. Like FF X's battle system where you can switch other characters in and out during battle, FF VIII's battle system where you can press R1 right as Squal swings for a more powerful attack, and possibly being able to make certian answer choices that can affect certian parts of the story for good or bad.
