Square chooses new games over FFVII remake

Still waiting, hoping for that Final Fantasy VII remake? It might be time to let that one go; Square Enix would rather develop new releases.

Speaking in an anniversary feature for the game in Famitsu (via), character designer Tetsuya Nomura acknowledges fans’ desire to see a remake but at the same time says the focus is on creating new games that would match or top VII‘s quality. So, I guess folks should be both sad and happy?

I’m not too big on Final Fantasy so I couldn’t say myself, but has anything come close to VII over the years? It seems like nothing has ever really measured up..
