Game Reactor recently had the opportunity to chat with veteran Square Enix producer Yoshinori Kitase about the Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PlayStation 4. The team asked Mr. Kitase which Final Fantasy project he would personally like to remake next and he replied that it would be the Super Nintendo title, Final Fantasy V.
“Let’s say you have the money, the team, and even the resources you had with FF7R, and you have the chance to remake any other game. Which one would it be?”
“(Laughs) Ok, so first of all, you have to promise you’re not going to write an article saying Square Enix is remaking Final Fantasy something, something… It’s just a purely personal opinion, just so you understand that”, Kitase-san made very clear to Gamereactor first of all. “With that caveat in place, the first Final Fantasy that I worked on myself was Final Fantasy V, that hasn’t been remade with the more realistic kind of approach yet, so I think it might be quite interesting to do a FF5 remake someday”.
