FFVII for iOS and Android will take “years” (via Shacknews)

FFVII_SECTION_LOGOBy year’s end, every numbered Final Fantasy game from 1 through 6 will be available on iOS and Android. So, it should be pretty obvious what the team should be working on next. However, producer Takashi Tokita has bad news for fans. He says it will take years before the team tackles Final Fantasy 7 for mobile.

“Unfortunately, it’s not that it’s not impossible for us to develop Final Fantasy 7 for mobile,” Tokita told Shacknews. “It’s that currently, space will be an issue. Phones won’t be able to contain the space it takes. It’s over a gigabyte. People are probably going to have to wait a few years.”

The FMV-heavy RPG took three CD-ROM discs when it debuted on PS1. The recent PC re-release ended up being 3GB large–well over the 2GB limit Apple imposes on iOS games. “It’s definitely going to be years before we do the port,” Tokita added.

Let’s hope they won’t need 40 years to make it…

Interview with Takashi Tokita

Final_Fantasy_Logo_PSD_by_iampxrWhat’s The Difference Between Making Final Fantasy Now And 20 Years Ago? That was the question that Siliconera posed to S-E Developer Takashi Tokita in a very interesting interview which also talks about the 3D remake of FFIV: The After Years and a RPG called Live a Live. You can check the interview in here.

New Noel Artowork for Lightning Returns: FFXIII

tumblr_muulugfTD21ql4dvuo8_1280This week, a new artwork for character Noel in his appearence in Liggtning Returns: FFXIII has surfaced. It depicts the character sitting in a sofa in what seems to be a living room with strange symbols on the wall. Fitting for the darker personality that Noel seems to have in this next installment in the FFXIII series. A few more pieces of artwork can be seen here, which is the blog of our member Mwynn, who also takes credit for bringing these news to our attention.
