WoW players: we have all your patch 2.4 news!

Celebrating ten years of FFVII


Kaz Hirai attended Square Enix's 10 year anniversary party for Final Fantasy VII, leaving a note saying "the best is yet to come." Is he alluding to Crisis Core? Or the oft-rumored Final Fantasy VII remake? Regardless, it looks like Square is far from milking this milestone RPG.

You must check out Kotaku's gallery from the event, which shows some memorabilia on display, such as the Final Fantasy VII limited edition PSP. Our heart yearns for it ... even if our wallets shy away.

I don't think he was alluding to anything. He was just pretty much saying he expects final fantasy's success to continue.

It's pretty sad to think people will say RPG and this game comes up. JRPG's go against everything a real rpg is about.

2 of the most retarded comments so far. A, the president of PS wouldnt show up just to say he expects great things unless something big was already in the pipeline, otherwise Square would be under a lot of starin to perform, and B, FF represent everything an RPG should have. Engrossing story, stunning characters, locale, effects, music, magic, mystery and stats to outweigh all other stat heavy RPG's. Ppl need to wise up and stop acting like babies.

Wow, I'm not sure if you're trolling or you actually believe what you're saying. Pretty lulz-worthy either way.

Kaz Hirai's comment could be read either way. Does it matter? No. I'm actually sure he meant it BOTH ways. Square always seems to have something big in the works, they have a good track record and it's likely they will keep improving.

As a big FF fan myself, I hate to break it to you, but the FF games are NOT the best, bar none, RPGs on the market. All the features that you state that the FF series has is common to almost all RPGs. Let's be honest, Square's made some really bad FF games. They've also make some excellent FF games. Fanboyism has a limit.

BTW, I'd be pretty happy with a FFVII remake. Though they better fix the dialogue if they do.

I wish I could get into a Final Fantasy game I really do but I can't. I love the characters, environments and everything else except the turn based combat, that's what puts me off. I can't stand turn based games. So here's hoping a spinoff realtime FF game gets made sometime. *crosses fingers*

That's really unfortunate that you can't get into turn-based combat. As far as I'm aware, Crisis Core is a realtime combat RPG, so I don't think that you'll be waiting too long!
