Square Enix told petitioners yesterday that their pile of signatures was in vain -- there are "no current plans" to produce a remake of the wildly popular and much-in-demand Final Fantasy VII
. Of course, earlier this year, Final Fantasy III
producer Hiromichi Tanaka did not rule such a remake out
, but merely said it was a matter of timing. By timing, we can only assume that Square Enix means to go through Final Fantasy V
first, after finishing up with the fourth installment
of the series, which is as it should be. Right, Square Enix? Right?
The sheer size of the title is often cited as a reason such a remake may be unsuitable for the DS, but we would just like to point out that such obstacles are not insurmountable. After all, Archaic Sealed Heat
, our favorite game that we've never seen, is set to be released on a larger-than-normal game cart
