Square has announced that it will release the remakes of Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and IX for the PlayStation 2 in individual packages. Each will be in DVD-ROM format, with graphical and audio enhancements. Additionally, special features will be included in the remake discs. No release information has been disclosed on the three Final Fantasy remakes at this time.

This news was announced 13 years ago, so i assume we should be expecting a trailer any day now?

I am unsure if any amount of remaking would make FFVIII worthwhile. As for FFVII or FFIX, is either game got remade, then cool, but if not, whatever, I'm happy with how both game originally were fo rthe most part.

never really got the hooplah over FFVII getting remade, TBH.

im talking about proper remake. not outdated.

I've been camping outside of Gamestop for 13 years now just to pre-order these suckers.

I think we're more likely to hear Square making a Final Fantasy 9 Steam port than a PS2 remake.

Ehhhhhh.

Final Fantasy VII combat system did not age well at all. I'd much rather see said remake to be done by the studio behind the Tales series.

I disagree. I'd much rather have that type of gameplay than any other for an RPG
