Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama has conceded that if he were to go back and remake any title in the franchise, it would without a doubt be the PSX classic, Final Fantasy VII. Surprised? Thought not.
“That would be Final Fantasy VII!” said Toriyama.
“If we had the manpower and the time to work on a project,” he continued, adding, “if we were to remake Final Fantasy VII with the quality of Final Fantasy XIII it would become a tremendous project.”
“If we can get the number of people we need by all means that would be the one I would really want to remake.”
If for some reason you have yet to indulge in this classic slice of RPG goodness, be sure to head over to the PlayStation Store and download the game for a bargain price – you won’t be disappointed.

To be honest I would want to see a remake of FFVII. I raher they just remake it instead of talking about remaking it all the time.

@1, I agree 100% with you, it would be nice to see a remake of it, they need to stop their complaining and get to work.

But not like the XIII... Just imagine.. A linear FFVII, without town, shop... Square Soft was Great, not Square Enix...

Oh FFS!! Just get on with it!!

I agree enough talk already, MAKE IT HAPPEN!!

Considering you alredy told us, and it was pretty obvious considering it's use in the tech demo.....
Sounds like someone's trying to tempt us with good stuff.

Figures, even the dev's are hung up on the worst game in the series. I just don't see the appeal; any of the SNES FF's were 100x better than that piece of junk.

@7 How does it feel to be Captain-Against-Anything-The-Majority-Favors? To call FFVII junk shows your inability to recognize greatness or your need to be anti"mainstream". Congrats.

Vagrant Story > FF7.

Actually there's a lot of people that don't think FF7 is the end all/be all of FF, myself included. I'd rather see a remake of 8 or 9 over 7...

Well they have Eidos under them now so I mean, That's man power right there. If their deal with Tecmo has been successful that would've been enough man power right there. But if you PERSONALLY ASK ME ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS GET AGITO XIII AND VERSUS XIII OUT OF THE WAY AND THE WHOLE SQUARE ENIX TEAMS FULLY FOCUS ON ONE TITLE INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DROP MANY GAMES IN ONE YEAR LIKE STAR OCEAN IV, NIER, FFXIII, FM:EVOLVED, FFXIV, AND MANY GAMES. TRUST ME THEY HAVE ENOUGH MAN POWER FOR THE PROJECT YOU'LL THINK THEY'LL BE ATTACKING MORE THAN 256 PEOPLE ON MAG....SQUARE ENIX JUST LOVE TO COMPLAIN AND WHINE BUT THEY DO IT...THEY JUST BEEN SIPPIN A LITTLE WINE TOO MUCH THIS GEN...THATS ALL..

@7 - It may not be the best FF game (my vote is FFIV), but it's still a great game. I would like to see a remake of VII.

bring back the job system of FFIII

I've said it several times: FF VII doesn't need a remake. It is availabe on the PSN for everybody to enjoy it. People that want a remake are simply saying that graphics are what matters, and FF VII it's not about the graphics. Characters, great sotry telling and fantastic gameplay is what made this game the king of the RPGs.
Just make FF XV to have the same combat mechanics has FF VII. That would be much better then a remake.
Gambits? Paradigmas? The h€ll with that.

As long as they don't meddle with anything about the game other than the graphics, I'm all for it.
