But could there be plans to maybe approach other Final Fantasy games in a similar manner? In an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), Final Fantasy VII Remake’s director Yoshinori Kitase said that a Final Fantasy VIII Remake could be a possibility, although he noted that he might not necessarily be the one to do it.
According to Kitase, “If the youth that inherits the genes of Final Fantasy can step up and do it, then I’d like to see it made. For Final Fantasy VII Remake, the project started from my desire to make Final Fantasy VII with today’s technology while I’m still here at Square Enix. So I’d like to see it [Final Fantasy VIII Remake] done by the youth of Square Enix.”
