Square 'would be interested' in Final Fantasy VII-2, needs to be 'big budget'

Series producer "would be interested given the opportunity"

Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase has spoken about the tantalising prospect of making Final Fantasy VII-2.

Asked whether Square Enix might make a direct sequel to the much loved game PSone game, FF XIII-2 producer and VII director Yoshinori Kitase told CVG's E3 agents:


"It would have to be really big budget title. It would take a long time and a lot of money to make that. We would be interested given the opportunity, but obviously we'd have to see, round up the best staff, and we'd have to look at the situation in the market to see if it's good timing for us... At the moment we've got no plans... We might do it."

Last March, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada said that the Japanese publisher was considering a remake of the fan favourite game, which was released digitally on PSN in 2009.
