FFVIII Remake?

Ever since the release of the PS3 and especially after the FFVII PS3 Technical Demo came out, Final Fantasy fans have been itching for a remake of what can be deemed the fan favorite of all the FF games. An interview with Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase, director of the original FFVII, gives us a glimmer of hope.

No doubt this would be no small feat, but given Square Enix's track record so far and the unrelenting demand, a remake is not so farfetched. One can dream, no? In Kitase's own words:
My feelings are that if a remake were to work well then all the core members of the original team must be reassembled, all the artists and designers.

The problem is that, although all of us have an idea of what a remake should be and how to do it, organizing such a thing right now is logistically very difficult. All the different members are now involved in very new, very large projects like Final Fantasy XIII and those projects are going to take a while.

Maybe, when all those games are finished then we can look at doing something like that.

Of course, that said we came up with the idea for Crisis Core in just two days. It was a case of 'this is what we want to do, so let's do it'. So, you can definitely expect the probability of something spontaneous happening at some point, but it's hard to predict.
