March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

Yoshinori Kitase (FF6, FF7), producer of Advent Children, commented some more on the possibility of a Final Fantasy VII sequel in game form, but didn't reveal any actual details. Yet, the fact that they are even considering it, as he says, should be worth noting - there may be another surprise yet to be added to the upcoming Compilation of Final Fantasy VII. Additionally, Japanese game mag V-Jump seems to know more, printing a silhouette of Vincent alongside text stating that we could expect an upcoming title involving him that may or may not involve gunslinging action. Errrr.

They are taking this polymorphism thing way too seriously...

And after gunslinging-Vincent, what would we have? Streetfighting-Tifa..? An Einh?nder clone featuring Cid Highwind as the noble pilot-hero..?

bahahahah. why not? if it makes money, do it! Final Fantasy VII could become the first "brand" based on the Final Fantasy parent brand. Just think, an anime series based around some of the characters, with rollouts on all consoles, an MMORPG and cellphone/DS/PSP online title. Shareholders will love it, fans will love it, self-acclaimed gamers will make a big announcement in a desperate attempt to stand out from the crowd, and Square Enix will MAKE MONEY. These guys are brilliant. I wish I could come up with the idea of renaming something Capcom has been doing for years and walking away as if it's sliced bread.

I don't see how this discontent by malcontents is any different from the kind spouted back when Square severed ties with Nintendo. Only this time Final Fantasy VII is worshipped as the gold standard of Square games, with a feeble, dishonest shout-out to FF1-6 to establish old-school cred. Josh claims that "our beloved franchises are being violated," but he doesn't do anything other than scapegoating Wada for what he perceives is a shift in company's vision toward cold business-like calculation, as though back in the day "they" were unpretentious, back-slapping chums devoted to the purity of the game... er, RPG... and commited to an esprit de corps with us, those of us who were privy to Great Ideas. It's hard for me to reconcile his crowing about the prostituting of Square's franchises with his fondness for FFXI and FFX-2.

I thought Nomura was directing FFVII: AC...

Paul, I just read squareamp.com.

The prostitution that's going on doesn't seem nearly as bad as it is with some companies. I mean, at least Square (Enix) seems interested in preserving the integrity of its games and properties. Say what you will about Advent Children, but it has Cloud in a cool-looking black coat with a big sword, Sephiroth with long, grey hair, and at least one shot of Sephy walking through burning ruins. They're excellent screenshots to release when you're pandering to a public that likes and remembers originals. Also, I wanted to remind everyone, if they do remake FF7 it will be the first time they have ever done so.

Also, he says "in spite of all this", he enjoys FFIX and X-2. Meaning, sure he likes the games, but he's still hardcore. HARD COOOORREEEE!!

Article corrected; seems like the source I got the news from was actually wrong. Fuckers.

Damned stupid people (them) for not getting it right! Kitase? Director? Sure...
I'm interested to see what Nomura comes out with, after all, FFVII's characters were his...
