Rumor Water: Final Fantasy VII Is Coming To E3, At Sony’s Press Conference

The dreams of fans who’ve waited and hoped years without avail might just come to reality next week at E3, at Sony’s press conference, where it is believed Square-Enix, who’s hurting right now, will announce the remake of Final Fantasy VII. That, my friends, would be a megaton.

Sources close to PSXextreme have told the site that the publisher will be present at Sony’s press conference to make an announcement that’s “remake” related, so to us, this could only mean one thing: Final Fantasy VII remake coming to PS3.

Of course we’ll hear of FFXIII-2 and even Versus XIII – which might go multiplatform, but that would all be alright and good if VII ends up being what the rumor claims, a PS3 exclusive.

But like I said, Square-Enix has suffered many a loss as of recent, as it had ignored its fans and chose the path it deemed better. That is compromise the integrity of its games to cater to the “western crowd”. Hence, Final Fantasy XIII became the biggest disappointment this generation. So the firm needs some kind of “redemption” so to speak, and maybe, just maybe, a Final Fantasy VII remake announcement at Sony’s presser will save it.

Because Deus Ex: Human Revolution just don’t have the strength to accomplish such a fit, nor does Tomb Raider.

    If this is true this would be the best news for ages and just what Sony need to try and rebuild their reputation. ff7 was quite easily the game of its generation and i think a remake of this would be amazing. However i remeber when the rumour mill on this started a few years ago SE dismissed it as they said it would literally take millions of man hours to totally re develop and remaster the orgional game?!
    I really really hope that they do this!!!

    Oh man, this would be the biggest piece of e3 news for me, guys! But like foxton said, Square-Enix has said in the past they wouldn’t be able to…But with their reputation in the dump, and investors becoming more weary, this could be their saving grace. I’d leap for joy!

    I want a remake, but if they’re going to do it, they’ll have to NOT change up things…

    its $E, they cant not change it!
    asking $E not to change it, is like telling the cookie monster to eat no more cookies.
