Final Fantasy VII Remake May Happen if the Legacy Series Success


That’s right guys – the remake of Final Fantasy VII may be nearer than ever if the new Legacy series manages to success on Android and iOS devices. The Legacy series includes multiply Final Fantasy game remakes for mobile phones and the first title Square Enix is working on is Final Fantasy VI that will be out this winter. This was revealed by Takashi Tokita on Kotaku today.

The remake won’t be a straight port and it will have some serious enhancements. Final Fantasy VI release will be similar to Final Fantasy V remake that was released two week ago. “The battle systems have been altered for the other [mobile remakes] for Final Fantasy and VI will be the same. For instance grinding was an issue and people had to spend a lot of time leveling up. Now on the mobile devices the battle systems have been adjusted so you don’t have to fight as much and can enjoy the game for what it is.”: told Tokita.

The graphics will be refined for cellphones as well. They still are 2D but sharpened, similar to the recent mobile release of Final Fantasy V.

As stated on Kotaku: “The Legacy series won’t necessarily end with VI, Tokita said, when we asked him if it could include VIIVIIIIXX and beyond. “We are aware that we have tons of VII fans,” he noted. “We have VII fans in our own company. If this Legacy project works out well, we would like to one day be able to work with VII.”

So it seems if the legacy series success, we will be getting Final Fantasy VII remake and even VIII and IX remakes for our mobile devices! What do you think? Would you download the remakes?

  1. You stupid pricks the customer is always right stop beating round the bush build it for ps4 and fans will be throwing money at you wtf final fantasy on a phone no thanks my phones teathered to the wall enough as it is with out playing a game thats prob 5x the storage this fucking phone will even hold

  2. the only problem I really see with the legacy series being the success they want it to be to warrant a VII remake is that the legacy series is being done on mobile phones. I play games like Final Fantasy for the story. I like to sit down and sink myself into a couple hours or more of playtime and enjoy the story line not just poke a few buttons of random combat. During any given work day, I don’t have that time to sit and play (unless its on a coffee/bathroom break and then really come on..) at home i have proper consoles and dont want to wear down my phone battery that badly or be forced to leave it plugged in all the time in order to maintain its primary function as a phone while gaming.

    I am dying to see remakes of 7 and 8 (never gonna happen, I know). Updated graphics, open world/integrated zones (instead of 3 steps across a room to zone, take 3 more steps and zone again) Voice overs.

    SE showed us what they can do with the realm of 7 with Crisis Core and Advent Children. I’d drop my last dollar on an AC quality remake.

  3. I’m glad their fixing the leveling up system, because playing 3 has really been a drag, I keep stopping and coming back to the game later. And yes I would download a VII remake (even though I’ve played it already) VIII and IX as well (which I haven’t played). =)

  4. The sad thing about this announcement is that people will be complaining about the remake anyway since it’s not on HD consoles. In my opinion, this is a great way to bring old titles for the new fans and I will be playing them as well once available if the remakes are decent.

    Now when Square Enix has chosen this direction with mobile games, I really hope they will really improve and invest to them to bring the best possible experience – not some rushed ports. The new announcement to bring Drakengard 3 West was a great sign from the future that they haven’t forgotten small fan communities either. I have more hope on SQEX than for a long time.

    What do you guys think?

    • I think SE is really making sure they do no more rush jobs i.e. ff13-2 no knocking the game because I really liked it but a lot of the game was the same old models. But with the new LR and feature games that r coming out, u can see their really making an effort in their quality and creativity. I like what I’m seeing and I haven’t given up in them =)

    • I can already foresee the mountain of complaints incoming :p
      Personally im in no rush for one – it comes when it comes – SE can take their time and i know that they said if Versus does well theyll consider remaking the game for consoles
      I think this is a good chance for them to test some things out, maybe even experiment with a few things to just see what itll look like and whether it will work – maybe even help give them guidance on ‘when’ it comes to consoles – so itll lighten the load and quicken some processes up – could even say this is a ‘test’ – be able to get feedback which they can use for the future :)
