News: Square Enix, I say this as a friend, it's time to **** or get off the pot.

It never ends!

Siliconera recently interviewed Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama and asked him the very loaded question "You worked on a bunch of Final Fantasy games. Which one would you want to remake the most?"

He predictably replied:

[Laughs.] That would be Final Fantasy VII!

If we had the manpower and the time to work on a project, if we were to remake Final Fantasy VII with the quality of Final Fantasy XIII it would become a tremendous project. If we can get the number of people we need by all means that would be the one I would really want to remake.

Toriyama has had a long history with the Final Fantasy series and served as the Event Planner for Final Fantasy VII.

Developers at Square Enix have ping-ponged back and forth over the years about the validity of a Final Fantasy VII remake. Several of the company's most prominent team members have expressed an interest in the undertaking, while others believe the project is "too big" to do right.

Fan demand for the remake has only grown since E3 2006, when Square Enix showed a technical demo of how Final Fantasy VII would look on the then unreleased PlayStation 3.

The original PlayStation version of the game was added to the PSone Classics section of the PlayStation Store last June. It has been consistently ranked as one of the bestselling PSN games month after month.

Toriyama is currently working on The 3rd Birthday, a spin-off of Parasite Eve for the PSP.
