With how well received the Final Fantasy VII remake has been so far. It’s no surprise that Square Enix has been receiving feedback from fans asking for Final Fantasy VI, one of the most beloved entries in the series, to receive the same treatment.
Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase recently made comments during an interview with YouTuber Julien Chièze that such an undertaking would take around 20 years to develop for a game as large as Final Fantasy VI. This is in large part due to the game’s much larger cast of 14 playable characters. In fact, Kitase himself has been pushing for a Final Fantasy VI remake internally at Square Enix, but it doesn’t sound like those conversations are going very well if we’re going by his recent comments on the matter.
The release of the second installment in the FFVII remake project, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, arrives on the PlayStation 5 in just a few short weeks on February 29.
