FFVII would take 10 times as long to develop compared to FFXIII

Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase has revealed that if the firm attempted to remake FFVII to the same level of quality as FFXIII, it would take the team roughly 10 times longer to create in comparison to the PS3/360 RPG.

Speaking at the launch event for FFXIII in Korea recently, Kitase commented, “We’ve gotten this question a lot from many countries,” adding:

“To make FFXIII at this level of quality, it took us 3 to 4 years. If we were to make FFVII in the same style of FFXIII, it would take 10 times as long, so it would be difficult to take it up immediately. However, we always keep in mind how often this is requested.”

The subject of a FFVII remake has popped up numerous times over the past year or so, with Square most recently commenting that it aims to “explore” the possibility of remaking the classic RPG.
