The agonizing wait for a hard release date from Square Enix for the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is still ongoing, but that hasn’t stopped Yoshinori Kitase and Motomu Toriyama, directors of various Final Fantasy games, from talking to FFDream.

Shortly before Yoshinori revealed that they still haven’t confirmed whether The Last Mission would be included in the collection because they are “concentrating about rising the quality of the HD Remaster,” he said that “there is no plan” to do a Final Fantasy VII remake.

He notes that they are aware of the fan anticipation for the remake, and if they did want to do it, “we have to sit down and think carefully what would be the best possible way to do that.” Yoshinori continues by saying “it could be a remaster like X/X-2 HD Remaster or possibly a full remake,” but they “have to investigate to be sure what our fans are looking for, and then we have to take the right decision if we were to do Final Fantasy VII another time.”

Would you rather see an HD remaster of Final Fantasy VII that takes 2 years, or a full remake that takes 5 years? Let us know in the comments below.
