In the recent issue of Famitsu magazine, there was a large section featuring Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud Strife and squashed rumors of a Final Fantasy VII re-make. The magazine shows a glimpse of games that he will be appearing on as a cameo, but Nomura says not to expect a full revival of the beloved classic anytime soon.
With Final Fantasy VII being one of the most highly requested games to be revamped, Nomura’s statement will surely disappoint the core fans of the series, and classic gamers in general. With a slew of games slated for 2010 (including FFXIII and Dissidia Final Fantasy), Square Enix certainly has plenty to offer, but as far as revisiting the glory days of FFVII… don’t wait around.
On a brighter note, one of the main highlights in this particular issue of Famitsu is how Cloud Strife’s life began, and also shows the year he was born and for the rest of the characters. Damn, they really love Cloud Strife!
